Posted on June 20, 2013 by Jim Ellis | 0 Comments

  It has been a great couple of weeks at Ballboy! Getting prepped and ready for our first, FIRST, National Pet Trade Show. SUPERZOO! Last year Kris and I traveled, via roadtrip, to Superzoo 2012 to walk the show and determine if this would be a place to premier Ballboy to the nations pet retailers, distributors etc!  We attempted to register for Superzoo 2013 last year but were denied.. the show had already SOLD OUT!  Well, we knew we should be participating so we put our name on the waiting list.. just in case.. Well, we got the email some weeks ago.. there was room for us. .both in the General show booth area .. and a spot in the New Products Area!. This is a huge step for us.. and.. we are just about ready to go!.  Thanks so much for all of our great allies!.. Sharon DeDalto, owner, inventor, sales etc.. like all new product manufactuers.. for her guidance and experience as a participant last year.. to Ellen Tortia and Mark Rosenthal of North Bend's Replicator Graphics.. . Awesome signs and the loan of a much needed Show Booth to use in Vegas!.. We are close to ready! Please come see us ..Booth 4952, and in the New Products area at Mandalay Bay Convention Center! We are pumped.. Kris, Lizzie (Production Lead) and myself will be ready to take new orders!

and here ... is the MINI!

Posted on April 08, 2013 by Jim Ellis | 0 Comments

 We work for pets of all sizes! Kris created the MINI as a pets "first toy". This little one will allow even the smallest of your pets to have fun!. Light weight for easy pick up.. or sliding across a floor! 



A first toy to take along when you go to choose or pick up that newly adopted one!

 This all natural 100% hemp toy in a smaller size. It is hand sewn and tied to create a toy for the smaller dogs.  It is very light weight and seems to attract kittens and cats as well! Our pug, Phoebe, likes this toy cause she can carry it around jumping here and there with it!


* Not intended for solo play with aggressive chewing dogs.
