Product Review and Giveaway: Hartz® Dura Play™ Bones

Cosmo's living large with his medium Dura Play bone
Fa la la la la! 

Cosmo is looking quite smug with his new Dura Play bone from Hartz, and today he gets to give away some of these bad boy toys! 

But first, he took a few new toys from Hartz on a test run. 

Hartz sent us a selection from its holiday gift guide, including the medium Dura Play bone, a small Dura Play bone and the Tuff Stuff Tiny Flyer.  

Yesterday we reviewed the Tiny Flyer so today it's all about Dura Play! 

The medium Dura Play bone captured Cosmo's attention from the start. I like it,  because the bone doesn't roll and get trapped under the sofa.  It does have a fun bounce and also seems quite durable.

Cosmo seems to like:

  • Its squeak and color -- most of Cosmo's favorites are green, hmmm.
  • The firm Power Play Core™ -- a foam technology that seems to provide a good chewing experience
  • To fling it in the air and chase it!
Cosmo demonstrates the two Dura Play bones here. Check it out! 

The Dura Play bones are available at Walmart and Kmart stores. (suggested retail price: $2.99 small bone;  $5.29 medium bone)

Now, here's how you can win your  pup the magic of Dura Play!

Disclosure: I received these products for free from Hartz. The opinions in this review are my own. 


  1. Cosmo looks like he's asking you if he can keep his new toy!

  2. I watched Cosmo play with the Hartz Dura Play bone & he had so much fun I want one for myself (and not for Mau Kitty)...I like to play hard & this bone looks like it would take all I could give...Written by Mom for GizmoGeodog

    I made Mom do all the other stuff too - Gizmo

  3. Oh My! Was the DuraPlay bone coated with BACON?!?!?!?
    Please enter Sparky Glover in your drawing - I know she'd LOVE a good romp with the Dura Play bone after a long day at work - she watched the video with great interest. It looks to be a great stress reliever! She works hard 6 days a week at her store and really deserves a bonus this year for Christmas!
    Thank you!

  4. Diane, these videos are brilliant!!!!!! Great review!
