The Dogzilla dog toy brand is known for its gnarly look and rugged forms. While working at Petmate, I was tasked with designing the new line of Dogzilla dog toys. We wanted to revitalized the brand and decided to go with more whimsical dino themed toys to appeal to a wider crowd. To achieve a more whimsical and organic look, I worked with Grasshopper and Rhino. This allowed me to easily change and manipulate patterns based on a set of parameters. To my knowledge these Dogzilla Bone Stuffers are the first algorithmically designed dog toy.
The new Dogzilla dog toy line has a nice range of products including rubber/nylon Bone Stuffers, rope toys, and rubber tennis ball Predators. The Bone Stuffers are great for putting treats in, and if the rubber wears out, the nylon bone is still a good chew toy. The rope has a tentacle themed handle for extra grip. The tennis ball Predators are a fun fetch toy with gnarly dino characters chomping on the ball.
