Toy Boy

“The Odin is in a league of its own,” says Michelle Moy, co-creator of this stylish but functional dog toy with her fiancé, Billy Shih. Named after the couple’s corgi, the Odin features integrated flaps to place treats inside and various-sized holes for them to fall out of. What sets it apart from similar toys is its modular ability. “More than one Odin can be connected to another to create a different shape and challenge level,” Moy explains. The design is also considered, right down to the slate colour and modern geometric shape, which “complements people’s home décor, rather than takes away from it”. Moy and Shih’s Seattle-based company Up Dog Toys initially funded the Odin through Kickstarter, and has received plenty of positive feedback. “Many of our customers will come and tell us that our toy is the Goldilocks of puzzle toys,” Moy says. Not too heavy for small dogs or too tiny for big dogs, not too difficult yet still a challenge—just right.

ISSUE SEVEN — PRE-ORDER NOW

We are excited to announce our seventh issue is now available to pre-order.
This issue is about the joy of looking from the outside in. We tap into the routines (and peek inside the houses) of human–dog relationships around Tokyo. We ponder the age-old connection between dogs and horses. We journey with a wild mutt from New York to Zurich. We chuckle over poop-scoop habits around the world. There’s a lot to laugh about in this issue. Be it The McCartney’s pics of dogs in heels, artist Al Taylor’s wee art, John Bond’s drawings (feat a puppy pretzel!) or artist Wilfrid Wood’s bloated dog heads. All this, and more, inside the covers.
