I’m very critical, that’s why I don’t have many friends. So I seek company in other animals. Cats. Dogs. Babies. That explains my hyperactive dog. I’m so glad I found Wickedbone. A friend that can be his playdate and wear off his energy.
If you’re a dog owner, you’ll understand the endless cycle of finding a toy to keep your dog entertained enough so you won’t come home to a post-apocalypse. I’m his best friend, but I’m always on the hunt for his next good friend.
What is it?
As the name suggests, Wickedbone is a bone… that’s wicked. Well, a robot toy shaped like a bone to be precise. Not your traditional bone-shaped toy. Wickedbone has upped the game!
It is a smart dog toy. It has an app that lets you control it with your phone to play with your dog. Or play your dog!
Have you ever imagined being a God character in your pet’s world? Now, you don’t have to imagine it with the help of Wickedbone. Feel like being Loki for the day? Roll the bone away a teeny bit just when your dog almost gets it. The bewilderment on my dog’s face was priceless. (So is Tom Hiddleston’s!)
I used dog as an example. You can try it on your cat if you want, but I explicitly avoided mentioning cats because they are vengeful balls of fur. Proceed with caution if you plan to do so.
The apps on the Apple App Store (3.9) and Google Play Store (2.9) have decent ratings. There are complaints but we have made products with apps before so we know the difficulties they face.
Who is Wickedbone for?
Anyone who has a dog, a cat, a
hamster chinchilla, or a baby. That’s right, Wickedbone is safe even for a tiny human! Then again, all furrends are more like fur kids anyway, so they should be putting in that much attention to the safety and quality of the products.
Or anyone who knows someone with a fur kid. Can’t stand your girlfriend’s dog staring at you in the bedroom? He needs a Wickedbone. Put that away, I was referring to the toy.
Is it innovative?
I hardly ever say yes, not even when my ex-boyfriend proposed. But this time, it’s a YES!
Unlike conventional toys, Wickedbone has more moves! So, it’ll take a while longer for your dog to get tired of it. So your room stays nice and clean for a little longer. In other words, it postpones the apocalypse. I’ll give you a few moments to let that sink in. That’s how great I think Wickedbone is, until my dog gets bored of it.
Is it worth it?
Would you pay $56 for a smart toy for your dog? It’s a rhetorical question if you’re a pet owner. That’s pennies to please our masters.
Fine, the editor asked me to list two reasons, so here you go:
- Your dog will be distracted from destroying your place.
- Do I really need a second reason?
Some of you might be curious why I still have my dog if he’s such a home wrecker. Of course I’m exaggerating. My dog has separation anxiety but he doesn’t go that crazy, except that one time he saw a squirrel.
Every relationship is a love-hate relationship. There are times when it feels like we’re near apocalypse but there are also times when we’re in heaven.
What are the alternatives?
While smart toys for pets aren’t new, none of them dare to call themselves wicked. Also, Wickedbone has a good design and I can tell they love their pets, that’s why they are devoting their time to making products their pets would love. I can volunteer my dog as a test subject, since he’s a real picky pooch.
I intend to turn my dog to one of the wicked ones. Because the night ain’t for the faint of heart. (Any Dorothy fans?) Wickedbone should be very helpful with this.
