Designed in Sarasota by Students From Ringling College of Art and Design
Exclusively at DOGPerfect!
Purchase today and we will donate $5
from the sale of each toy back to Ringling!
The Happy Cactus and Platypus tender-tuffs were
designed by students from local Sarasota-based
Ringling College of Art & Design as part of a scholarship
competition hosted by dog toy manufacturer,
SmartPetLove. The top students were awarded a
scholarship for their design and were able to get real
world experience seeing their work go from concept
From now until October 31, these toys are exclusively
available for sale at DOGPerfect.
Tu Cam Malaspina designed the tender-tuffs Platypus,
a 24-inch multi-function toy that can be stretched,
tossed, and shook to maximize play. It has a squeaker
located in its tail and one in its head.
Bea Patarata designed the tender-tuffs Cactus, a 10-inch toy with a squeaker and enticing shape
to keep dogs engaged and having fun.
Future production plans may include DeAnna Boyer’s concept for a line of toys called Cozi Cosmonauts, designed to embrace the bravery and companionship of our furry pets.
We're also donating $5 from each sale of both the tender-tuffs Cactus and Platypus to Ringling College of Art & Design during this time period.
We’re excited for the opportunity to support local students!
The top three designers, Tu Cam Malaspina, Bea Patarata, and DeAnna Boyer, were each awarded scholarship money.
