Trick or Treat…or Toy

No good holiday should be without its attendant special toys. Holly Tyser, marketing manager for Kyjen, the manufacturer of the Plus Puppies line, says Christmas and Chanukah pet toy sales trounce Halloween 9:1, but Halloween sales have been growing faster over the past few years. The company introduced 18 new Halloween toys for 2013. The top seller so far is the Tuff Ones Pumpkin (on sale recently for $4.49)…dethroning last year’s top dog toy, the Hedgehog Grunt Devil (on sale recently for about $5.)
