Not only are the new toys pet-friendly, but they are also eco-friendly. Made from high-quality, sustainable materials and featuring colorful and engaging designs to stimulate pets’ natural instincts to play.
“As pet parents, we want to do everything with our furry companionship and are passionate about creating new products to enhance the human-animal connection. Now with the help of gaming leader HyperX, pets everywhere can truly assume the role of player two in their humans’ lives and unlock a new way to interact with each other in a fun and engaging way.”
Will Chen, CEO & Co-Founder of PLAY
So just what do HyperX and PLAY have in store for your favorite pooch(es)? Three toys and a chill pad, modeled after some of HyperX’s best-selling gaming peripherals. Here’s what HyperX has to say about the new toys: Game alongside your pet IRL with a matching “Alloy Keybark” Gaming Keyboard toy, constructed with a supersized squeaker and crinkles. Both you and your furry friend can chat and stream with the wearable “Cloud Arfa” Gaming Headset toy, modeled after the Cloud Alpha, equipped with durable dual squeakers for the ultimate playtime experience. The interactive “PAWdcast” Microphone toy, modeled after the QuadCast S microphone, is enhanced with hidden rope and advanced textures and sounds designed to capture any pet’s attention. Once it’s game over, enter cooldown mode on a soft and plushy “Pulsefur Mat” chill pad, modeled after the Pulsefire Mat mouse pad, available in multiple sizes.
“HyperX is excited to collaborate with PLAY to bring a new line of pet toys to market. As pet lovers ourselves, we know how important it is to keep gamers (of all species) physically active and mentally stimulated. Our collaboration with PLAY is a natural fit because, as we at HyperX like say, WE’RE ALL GAMERS.”
Stephanie Winkler, director of marketing, HyperX
