Our NoodlePetz® Story

The first NoodlePetz were born in the imagination of Florida artist Andrea McKoy in the summer of 2011 while swimming in a pool with her niece on a family vacation. Andrea returned to her studio and began to sketch, and before long a comical dragon was looking back from the page. Her NoodlePetz have all been artistically designed by hand, for a more realistic 3D size and appearance. Each style includes features that suggest a distinctive personality, with expressive eyes and long lashes. Not long afterwards the dragon was joined by other fun friends—a seahorse and parrot. New designs include a unicorn. Visit her virtual studio to see more.

Exceptionally sturdy for years of outdoor use, NoodlePetz are manufactured to outlive traditional pool toys.
