Shiver Critters

Rate this product

Shiver Critters are dog toys shaped like small animals that'll make noise and move around to entertain your dog. They'll bark, jiggle and dance on virtually any surface, and are suitable for dogs of any age, shape, or size. Both Rockin' Raccoon and Frenzy Fox are available, each with a long tail for your dog to grab with its mouth or its paws. If your dog likes to lay around, these toys are just the thing to get them up off the furniture or floor and active again.

Total Cost Breakdown

The cost of Shiver Critters is $10.99 plus $6.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows a free gift which you will receive by paying the extra shipping fee of $6.99 for a total price of $24.97. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page which was taken offline due to Shiver Critters being discontinued. Shiver Critters may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.

How It Works

Each of these toys contains a sound and motion mechanism that activates when movement is sensed nearby. Therefore, as soon as your dog, another pet, or a person approaches Rockin' Raccoon or Frenzy Fox, the toy'll begin to make fun noises while jiggling back and forth and side to side. When left alone, it'll quiet down.


  • Soft

    Shiver Critters are soft enough to be carried in a dog's mouth without causing the dog's teeth to ache. Due to this softness, you also won't need to worry about one of these toys hurting your dog if it comes in contact with their face or body during play.

  • Durable

    Although these toys are soft, they're also made of durable material, so even if your dog plays with theirs for hours on a daily basis, it's unlikely that it'll wear out quickly.

  • For Indoors and Outdoors

    Shiver Critters are safe for use both indoors and outdoors. They're fun to play with on a grassy lawn or a stretch of sand, but even if you play with one in the house, it won't cause damage. These toys are too soft to scratch up walls or floors, and their jiggling and dancing routines do not involve them rising off the ground in flight.

  • Compact

    These interactive toys are much smaller than most dogs, and are small enough for you to carry in a backpack or suitcase if you take your dog on a day trip or on vacation. You could even keep one in your glove compartment for some impromptu fun if you frequently take your dog out in your vehicle.

Positive Points

  • Keeps Dogs Active

    With a fun toy like this to play with, your dog will be more likely to stay active throughout the day, instead of lounging on the couch or lying on the floor. This activity will be especially beneficial to senior dogs ( who tend to get lethargic ), overweight dogs, and apartment dogs who may lack outdoor exercise.

  • Promotes Independent Play

    While you probably enjoy playing with your dog, there are probably times you can't play with him or her, such as when you're sick, injured, or are out of the house at work. At those times, your dog will be able to play with its Shiver Critter on its own without getting terribly bored. Since these toys will move and make noise, the experience will be similar to playing with another living thing.

  • Can be Fun for Kids

    If you have kids around, they'll likely find the noise and activity produced by a Shiver Critter delightful, too, and any kids or dogs present may be able to have tons of fun together.

Negative Points

  • Might Scare Cats or Babies

    Some cats might enjoy playing with Shiver Critters like dogs do, but due to the fact that most are closer in size to the toys than dogs, some might find them downright scary. The same goes for any children under two years old in your household, although, as mentioned, older children will likely find the toys fun.

  • Noise Could be Irritating

    Even if you're not scared of a Shiver Critter, you may eventually find its noise annoying, especially when you're trying to read, pay bills, or do something else that requires focused attention. The noise could also be jarring if a dog starts playing with one in the middle of the night while you're trying to sleep.

Worst Invention Ever

This is literally the most useless invention I have ever seen in my entire life. Why people would pay more than a dollar for it amazes me. Why would you buy your dog a toy that
1. Bark all the time.
2. Is so small that your dog could accidentally choke on the pieces.

Stupidest toy ever. Dogs will! Tear open toy and choke, possibly to death on small parts of mechanism inside.
