New York, NY - November 28, 2023 - BARK (NYSE: BARK), a leading global omnichannel dog brand with a mission to make all dogs happy, in partnership with Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products today announced it is launching a National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation BarkBox and Super Chewer box to celebrate the “hap-hap-happiest” time of year with our dogs. New and current subscribers of BarkBox, a monthly themed surprise of toys and treats, and Super Chewer, a monthly subscription of tough toys for dogs who play harder, can play with Griswold family Christmas-themed toys starting today and all season long while supplies last.
BARK’s team of toy designers reimagined the Warner Bros. cult classic holiday film into hilarious dog toys such as a plush Clark Griswold and moose mug, cousin Eddie’s RV with a “Jelly of the Month Club” toy hidden inside, and even Aunt Bethany’s lime jello ready for dogs to rip into. Dogs that love a challenge, like cousin Eddie’s dog Snots, can opt for tougher designs of the toys through a Super Chewer subscription with durable versions of the Griswold family station wagon, moose mug, and the “gift that gives the whole year” “Jelly of the Month Club” toy with a surprise toy inside.
“At BARK, dogs are family, and we love including them in holiday traditions. Collaborating with classic films such as National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation is a fun way to bring our dogs into holiday season festivities,” said Dave Stangle, Vice President of Brand Marketing at BARK. “In a way, we see ourselves in Clark Griswold where we want our family (especially our dogs) to have a spirited holiday season that brings everyone together. These toys are our way of bringing dog parents and their pups together to celebrate.”
BARK was founded in 2011 and has since served more than 6.5 million dogs around the world. To learn more about the National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation toys and to sign up for a subscription, visit BarkBox.com or SuperChewer.com.
