Welcome to the LABoratory! Today I want to introduce the CRINKITS™ by Zigoo.
As Lab parents we are always on the hunt for that toy that can keep our Labbies entertained as well as be durable and able to last longer than 10 mins. Brody and Saban head up this department and are considered experts in their field.
This toy caught my eye and I just had to check it out. Brody and Saban love playing with empty water bottles and crunching on them. Like good Lab parents you have to keep your eye on them so they don’t get to a point where the bottles start coming apart and your fur babies can start swallowing plastic pieces.
Well when we got it and opened the box, out came a pink rubber cylinder. Crinkits calls it their Zigiflex™ material. It is a thick rubber that you slide the water bottle into and that is it. Give it your your Labs and stand back. Brody and Saban both immediately had at it. Tugging, twisting and CRINKING! The boys loved it. BUT like most new toys your kids have their way and then the boredom kicks in. I did not see that happen in this case. Brody and Saban played with the Crinket continuously. I found it quite humorous as they crunched away at it.

After about 15 minutes or so Brody was able to finally crush the water bottle inside completely where he could pull it out. I let him crunch on his prize a little longer and then to the recycling bin it went. Grabbed another water bottle and the process starts all over. I love it. The toy is also beneficial to Lab mom and dad’s health as it encourages you to drink more water. LoL. When we run out of water bottles i shove treats in it, I use it as a fetch toy and we also play tug-a-war with it. It is a pretty tough toy and after 2 weeks it is still standing or CRINKING!
So go get your Lab a Crinkits Interactive Dog Toy
