My Toysday Movie!

Since today is Toysday, I wanted to show you a very fun toy. It is called a Gommelgrabber. My Mommie got it almost 20 years ago, so I do not know if you can find one anywhere now. Sometimes old toys are the best.

Isis said...

Oh Daisy that's so cool I'z want one too now! I'z going to ask Mummy iffen she can make me something like that to play with, cause I'm not supposed to jump around like a loony now I'z probably in the family way... Though I'z still gotta exercise to keep my girlish figure and myself nice and fit! :)

topcatrules said...

Oh that was fun! We especially liked the bit at the end where it looked like you were going to jump right in the toy!

Parker said...

I wanted you to get the ball! That looks like a fun toy, but oh how I wanted you to get that ball!

Eric and Flynn said...

That looks like great fun. We were hoping you could get the ball out too. We were worried you might try to go in after it and get your nose stuck.

Alasandra said...

That toy looks like so much fun. We had a ball watching your movie.

Poppy Q said...

Daisy looks like you is very good at that game, and having dainty wee paws such as yours helps.

Also your mommie has very clean carpets.

Karen said...

THAT is one cool toy!! You are an excellent pouncer! I really thought you were going to get the ball when you had it trapped on top for that second, with your paw in the top hole. Great video!!

Dragonheart & Merlin said...

Great video Daisy! That looks like a very fun toy. :) We've seen something similar, made out of wood, advertised at one of the German pet supply stores.

Monty Q. Kat said...

That thing is cool!! I want one now!

The Furry Kids said...

That looks super fun! Way better than trackball even.

Siani said...

Wow! Fabulous movie, Daisy. That Gommelgrabber looks like loads of fun. I'm about to Google it to see if I can find one for my Leo and Liberty.

DEBRA said...

Daisy

wildcatsthree said...

Daisy, we just want to say you looked beautiful in the movie, although a little perplexed. These human toys are made to frustrate us kitties...but we're having mom do an internet search to see if it's still available. We figure it will be good to torture Fritz with.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Momma's first cat had one of those! She did not play with it as much as you though!

Gemini

Junior said...

That looks like a very fun toy! I was rooting for you to get that ball! And I loved watching you pounce!

Lorianna said...

Oh what fun! You were very patient, but it seemed like you became a bit cranky when you couldn't get the ball. :) Cricket sure would be, and when she gets frustrated she heaves a very heavy sigh. (it's very funny) Thanks for the cuteness today sweet Daisy.
Love and Purrs,
Lorianna

Angus said...

I LIKE THAT TOY! I want to get that ball! I REALLY LIKE THAT TOY!!!

Angus' Mom here: He's spazzin' out-we need to find somebody who sells that way cool toy-I told him he may not be able to fit his paw in those holes, but he's yelling, "I CAN, TOO, I WANT THAT TOY!"

Bun-Girl said...

I've seen something like this in one of my fave pet catalogs: you can find it here. Not exactly the same, but same kind of concept. Also, this one is leopard print!

Sultanfus and Guy said...

That looks like so much fun! Get the ball Daisy! GET THE BALL!

The Crew said...

That's a great toy! Did you try "googling" gommelgrabber? (try meowing that 5 times!)

Monkee said...

That looks like a fun toy, but I think you should be able to get the ball after a while. That would really frustrate me if I couldn't get the ball.

P.S. You're always welcome to come over and be my snuggle buddy if Pixie gets to grumpy to snuggle with.

Lois Grebowski said...

Get that ball, Daisy! That sure looks like a fun toy!

Asta said...

Sunny's Mommy said...

That looks like a very difficult toy game to win. Did you get the ball out all by yourself? Or did your Mommie have to help you?

DK & The Fluffies said...

I totally want one now!

The Meezers said...

we was waiting for the ball to come popping out the top. that would be AWSOME!!

MoMo said...

So happy Brit is adopted. That's a long time to be in the shelter. I purrayed that she would be happy in her furrever home.

Sassy Cat said...

Gee that could drive ya crazy. That looks like a neat toy though, your mommie should contact a cat toy company and see if they can make these again if they cannot be found, you could get rich; make them give you something for the idea.

Chen & Ollie said...

What a neat toy, Daisy! You look like you were having a whole lotta fun! We wonder where it got its name...
Purrs,
Mr. Chen & Ollie

Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn.

Butchy & Snickers said...

Hey Daisy,
That was fun watching you with the gommelgrabber, hehehehehe! Mama kept laughing the whole time. I Butchy probably would have pounced on top of it & broke it open to get to the ball, tee hee.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
Butchy & Snickers

Randi said...

OH Daisy! That movie is SOOO much better than the pol-a-tick crap thats on TV tonight! I think your momma should loop that video & make it play 24/7 on your bloggy! Kinda like Law & Order..ITS ALWAYS ON!

Love & Licks,
Randi

TorAa said...

I'm impressed - both how Daisy handled the challenge and the functionality of this simple fun toy.

Gandalf & Grayson said...

Mom searched on ebay... it apprears that you will have to share your Gommelgrabber Daisy. Can we be next? =^..^=

darlene said...

she is the cutest!!

David Rader II said...

I think that's one of the best toys I've ever seen! That was awesome!

Andrée said...

that's a marvelous toy. I wonder if any kitties have ever figured that one out. I loved Daisy's expression when the ball fell in the top: her head did the quickest little tiny BOING! It as so funny!

Carmen (Ana´s mommie) said...

Hahahahahahahahaha! Funny video!

Spunky Doodle said...

I like your move, Daisy. That does look like a very fun toy. I liked playing with the PetSmart box that we got when we brought home Moe. It had holes in it too and Karen would poke her fingers or mice toys in and out of them for me. She would stick the mice in the holes and then I could hit them out. It was one of my favorite toys!

JD at I Do Things said...

What a fun toy! I Googled "Gommelgrabber" but only found Daisy-related posts! That's too bad, because my cats would love this toy.
