One of the best-selling novelty items of all times, these tricky magnetic Scottie dogs are also one of our most requested items because they're doggone fun. Simply push across any smooth surface and watch as they repel, attract, and chase each other. Or move one across a piece of paper by moving the one beneath. You get one black and one white Scottie; each dog measures 1¼"x¾".

Rated 5 out of 5 by TRICKY DOGS AND GRANDMA'S HOUSE. I AM NOW 78 YEARS OLD, BUT, WHEN I WAS A SMALL CHILD, MY GRANDMOTHER KEPT A SET OF THESE TRICKY DOGS ON HER DINING ROOM TABLE. THE MEN WOULD PLAY WITH THEM WHILE THEY WERE DRINKING THEIR COFFEE, WHICH HELPED TO PROLONG THE TIME THEY WERE AT THE TABLE... I ORDERED THESE LAST YEAR, AND TWICE THIS YEAR, AND WOULD HAVE ORDERED MORE, BUT, YOU WERE OUT...I TRIED TO GIVE A SET TO ALL MY FAMILY MEMBERS, MY BROTHER AND SISTER, ETC, AS A BLAST FROM THE PAST...THE ORIGINAL SET CAME AS A PREMIUM WITH FOUR ROSES WHISKEY.I WOULD LOVE TO BE NOTIFIED IF YOU GET THESE BACK IN STOCK,,,,I GAVE ONE TO A LADY I KNOW, WHO SAID HER GRANDMOTHER HAD THEM ON HER TABLE....BACK IN THE DAY, THE MEN GOT FED FIRST, AND THEN THE WOMEN, AND THE CHILDREN FED LAST, WHATEVER WAS LEFT..DEF NOT THE WAY WE DO IT,,,KIDS COME FIRST, ALWAYS..MY COUSIN TOLD ME HE USED TO HATE TO GO TO AUNT MINNIES HOUSE...MY GRANDMOTHER...BECAUSE HE WOULD DANG NEAR STARVE TO DEATH, WAITING FOR A MEAL...AND I THINK , BECAUSE THE MEN SAT THERE AND PLAYED WITH TRICK DOGS TOO LONG... I HAVE ENJOYED BEING ABLE TO GIVE THESE TO MY FAMILY, ALONG WITH THE STORY THAT GOES WITH THEM....ONCE AGAIN, I AM IN THE MARKET FOR MORE IF YOU CAN GET THEM..HAPPY NEW YEAR...AUDREY SQUIRE, ST.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 9 YEAR OLD CHRISTMAS PRESENT GOING THROUGH CATALOG I SPOTTED THE SCOTTIE DOGS. I RECEIVED AS A CHRISTMAS PRESENT WHEN I WAS 9 YEARS OLD A SET OF THESE DOGS. THEY CAME AND THEY WERE IN THE SAME BOX AND WERE EXACTLY LIKE MINE! I SHOWED MY 9 YEAR OLD GRANDSON HOW THEY WORKED SEPARATEED BY GLASS AND HOW THEY WOULD REPEL AND ATTRACT EACH OTHER, HE LOVED THEM!. BY THE WAY I STILL HAVE MY ORIGINAL SET OF DOGS. January 9, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not as good as the old ones, just OK I was excited to see these as I remember the little black and white magnet dogs from my 1950's childhood. I got these for my sister's christmas stocking. they are cute, but sadly not like the originals. December 24, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by It's OK I bought this for my grandson's 7th birthday, since they had recently been studying magnetism in school, and I remembered these "Scotties" from when I was a child. Well, they ARE "Scotties", and they ARE magnets. But, they are miniatures of what I have memories of, and the box they came in looked like it had come out of a "Cracker Jacks" box. December 17, 2012

What Our Customers Are Saying about Our Tricky Dogs …

"I LOVE SCOTTIE DOGS. THEY ARE CUTE AND SWEET LITTLE DOGS. WHEN I WENT TO BUY ONE, I COULD NOT FIND ONE ANYWHERE. OUR VET EVEN LOOKED IN THEIR BREEDER BOOK AND NONE WERE LISTED. SO,WE ENDED UP AT A DOG SHOW TO LOOK FOR BREEDERS, AND WE FOUND A BREEDER AND SHE WAS SHOWING HER MALE & FEMALE..AND THEY CAME IN 1st&2nd @ THE DOG SHOW. AND I SPOKE TO HER, & SHE WAS GETTING READY TO BREED THEM. TO MAKE A LONG STORY SHORT,THE FEMALE HAD 4 PUPPIES,& SHE GAVE ME 1st PICK OF THE LITTER,SO I PICKED OUT A FEMALE-THEY WERE SO SMALL,THEIR EYES WERE NOT EVEN OPEN YET. AND I NAMED HER ""COURTNEY."" SHE WAS THE ""BABY"" BEFORE OUR ACTUAL BABY WAS BORN, &SHE WAS VERY PROTECTIVE OF OUR NEW SON WHEN WE CAME HOME FROM THE HOSPITAL. WE ALL HAD 13 WONDERFUL YEARS WITH COURTNEY AND THEN SHE PASSED AWAY FROM NATURAL CAUSES OF OLD AGE IN 1997. TO THIS DAY WE STILL MISS AND TALK ABOUT HER. AND I STILL COLLECT AS MANY SCOTTIE DOG ITEMS I CAN FIND. MY S0N IS NOW 17, AND WE BOTH WISH TO GET ANOTHER SCOTTIE DOG SOMEDAY-WHEN WE LIVE IN A PLACE WHERE YOU CAN HAVE DOGS. SO THANK YOU VCS FOR CARRYING SOME SCOTTIE ITEMS, AS THEY ARE NOT EASY TO FIND." - JANET ORITO, BAKERSFIELD, CA

"My grandmother had these in late 40s and enjoyed many hours of fun and laughter playing with them. We still have the originals. Now we need to create the fun again for our granddaughters." - Kathy, West Chicago, IL
