My siblings and I were batting around ideas for ways to recycle VEX parts in innovative and helpful ways. While we were working, however, our dog constantly took our parts and chewed them up behind our backs. After some consideration, this gave us the idea to make pet toys. We took inspiration from other cat toys when designing these new ones.

They were ready to turn it in only to discover that the challenge was for EDR and U only, so I took over the project.

We've used VEX IQ hex balls to create cats toys and VEX EDR skyrise cubes to create a play-structure for pets. To test them out, we took these inventions to the local animal shelter to see if real cats liked them.
