Would You Spend $140 On This Interactive Gaming Device for Dogs?

Some posts may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

As an extremely devoted dog mom, there are a LOT of things I will happily spend my money on for Daisy, but today I spotted something that made me do a double-take.

It’s this Wickedbone Interactive Smart Toy for Dogs. The list price is $160 but you can get it on Amazon for $139.99 w/ free shipping.

Now I’m a big fan of electronic gadgets. I LOVE my Roomba, have a Kuvings Cold Press Slow Juicer I use daily, rely on a pet camera like this one, and dare anyone to try and take away my Instant Pot!

That said, I’m just not sure how I feel about spending $140 on an electronic dog toy. First, I know how hard most dogs are on their toys. Would it even hold up? And I know that Daisy often loses interest in a new toy after a few days. Wobble Wag Giggle Ball I’m looking at you!

Here’s the description from the manufacturer:

Dogs love bones, but conventional bones are overrated. They quickly evaporate in a dog’s mouth, and they often cause gastric problems and one big mess, without offering any interaction or playing opportunities. Now meet Wickedbone, a bone-shaped interactive gaming device that performs like a truly smart, fun and excitingly wicked companion of your dog.

The Wickedbone is fully interactive. It can react to different actions of your dog with built-in emotional system. When your dog runs, Wickedbone runs after it; when your dog chases it, it turns around and runs away, making Wickedbone react in different and very engaging modes.

Wickedbone has been designed to be as safe, soft and strong as your dog needs it to be. Made of Polycarbonate, it feels sufficiently soft when your dog catches it. The material of the body, cover, and the tires are safe for humans and pets.

Here’s a video demonstration for the Wickedbone Smart Dog Toy:

While it does look fun and interesting, the jury is still out on this one for me. It would definitely make a cool gift idea for the dog who has everything! What do you think?

JBL Headphones and Bluetooth Speakers

JBL Charge 2: Between the twin passive radiators for deep bass, the massive 6000mAh battery and the hands-free conference speakerphone the key benefit is the Bluetooth Social Mode which allows up to three different users to take their turns to play their own playlists on a single speaker.

JBL Flip 2: Aside from the dual performance-tuned JBL drivers and a built-in bass port, the key benefit of the JBL Flip 2 is the SoundClear echo and noise cancellation combined with the state-of the art microphone system to pick up calls on the speaker.

JBL Reflect Earbud headphones: Sweat proof ergonomic design. With a 5 hour rechargeable battery and a reach of about 40 feet, the JBL Reflect BT’s key benefit is the design of the ergonomic eartips along with the built-in magnets which keep your buds on standby without loose cables.
