Pet Products Honored at SuperZoo Trade Show

Posted: Sept. 14, 2012, 3:55 p.m. EDT


A new line of bird toys developed by A&E Cage Co. of Burlington, N.J., captured first place in the SuperZoo 2012 Best New Product Awards in Las Vegas.

An anonymous panel of media judges chose the winners from among the numerous new products on display. Brilliant Pet’s FroliCat Flik cat toy took second place and Angels’ Eyes new shampoo line came in third.

A&E's new line of toys and stands are the first in the industry to use the wood of java trees, said John Lance, owner of A&E. The wood undergoes a curing process to keep it safe for birds.

“It’s a highly dense wood, which is good because the birds don’t chew it,” Lance said. “And the idea of having the dense wood is that the birds therapeutically exercise their digits on it.”

The line includes two sizes of tree stands, a bird “javarium”—a java stand inside an aviarium—and a series of toys designed for use with the stands and made from materials including coconut, woven wood and rope.

The FroliCat Flik is a white, disc-shaped mechanism that repeatedly flicks a string out from one side. Dubbed an “automatic teaser” by the company, it’s meant to encourage a cat’s instincts to stalk and pounce on prey, said Alan Cook, CEO of Chicago-based Brilliant Pet.

The new line of dog grooming products from Angels’ Eyes of Sunrise, Fla., includes a wide spectrum of ingredients and scents designed to last for several weeks. Each product is named after a geographic region, such as the Heartland Meadows hypoallergenic shampoo and Southern Comfort oatmeal shampoo and conditioner.
