REVIEW: Simply Fido Nap Mat & Organic Toy


Simply Fido Nap Mat & Organic Toy
Where to Find: Simply Fido

SimplyFido_311

SimplyFido_311_ZeusMSimply Fido sent us a Nap Mat and an Oliver Organic Ring Toy for review... and both were a huge hit with the Lapdogs!

Both items are from the Simply Fido Bamboo Rayon Collection. These certified non-toxic, environmentally friendly toys and accessories are not only great for our furry friends, but they're great for the environment as well.  Pamper your pets with peace of mind! All of the items are colored naturally with plants and minerals using Simply Fido's exclusive PureWaterWash process. The silky, bamboo rayon fabric is hand-dyed in chemical-free soy water that is purified before it is released back into nature.

The design team at Simply Fido chose bamboo rayon fabrics for this collection because bamboo is one of the most sustainable materials in the world. Bamboo trees release 35% more oxygen into the environment than any other tree or plant on Earth. They have very rapid re-growth and their long, strong roots help to hold the soil together and prevent erosion. I've loved knitting with silky bamboo yarns for years now and think the fabrics created by Simply Fido are just as wonderful to the touch!

SimplyFido_311_ZeusBSimply Fido Bamboo Rayon Nap Mats are reversible and quilted for extra softness. They roll up easily for travel and are available in two color schemes - pink/yellow and green/yellow. Perfect for puppies, the Small Nap Mat measures 24" x 19" and retails for $34. Larger dogs will enjoy relaxing on the Medium Nap Mat which measures 28" x 20" and has a suggested retail price of $40.

SimplyFido_311_TutDWe received a medium size green/yellow Nap Mat for review and although it is far smaller than most of the Lapdogs beds and blankets, they sure didn't mind!  The silky feel of the mat is very cool to the touch and I think that had something to do with it (nevermind that it was something new to lay on).  If I can get the bigger dogs to stop lounging on it, the mat will find it's way into Sophie's crate, as it seems to be the perfect size.  The mats are machine washable, which is an added bonus.

We also received the Oliver Dog Ring Toy.  This 14" interactive version of their plush toy sure kept everyone busy!  Olive has stretchable arms & legs, four squeakers and a super sturdy ring-body.  He is a sure winner according to the Lapdogs!  He even managed to keep both Lola and Sophie busy for quite some time as they shared Oliver...

The Lapdogs give their official 16 Paws Up Lapdog Seal of Approval to Simply Fido, as does Mama who especially loves the bamboo rayon fabrics!  I highly suggest adding them to your pack's toy and accessory collection.  You can find the Simply Fido Oliver Dog Ring Toy at Petco stores across America, while the Bamboo Rayon Nap Mats are sold at specialty retailers (visit Simply Fido for store locations).  The Lapdogs have already made a list of other toys they want from the collection...

Gretchen wants a shirt - all of them except the peanut one, actually. I call her Monkey, Dadaw calls her Sweetpea, and she likes the PANK trim on Cupcake.

Sis wants the blankie. She loves to root around in blankies.

I feel lucky because my word verification is buggers, which was one of Muggy's nicknames.

That blankie looks awesome!

Hugs,

I think Micro would like the green/yellow nap mat. He loves cuddling up on soft things like that. : ) He'd probably like the Oscar Monkey Ring toy, too.

Cat said...

Hi! I am a follower already so I hope that counts. I like the Bamboo Plush Rope Toy- White Lamb - what a cutie ... I just hope it can stand up to sharp little rat terror teeth! Jetta wants to shred everything - so at least these toys won't compromise her health.

Cat said...

This just in - Jetta says she'd like to have one of those sleep mat thingies because she likes to get under soft warm things!

Everything is so cute. The dogs would love the rope toys, I love the froggie. I think the mats are lovely, the colors are really soft and nice. I wish the shirts were large enough for my kids, but they don't go that large.
