Our Story

Pet Peanut was born in 2017. Its creator, Bob Hotz, felt something was needed that would put a smile on anyone’s face. It started as a simple desk ornament and grew to a size where it could be squeezed to relieve stress.

It is a bright, cheery gift that is perfect for holidays, birthdays, and other special occasions. And it has the best of personalities: friendly, trusting, non-judgmental, curious, and always fun. It is impossible not to enjoy Pet Peanut’s company, at any age.

Hotz says, “In the past, I wasn't a big reader of books. War and Peace and Lord of the Rings were not on the list. I enjoyed comics with their interesting or funny characters, great storylines, and cool graphics. They were also a quick, fun read, and a great inspiration for Pet Peanut.”

The popularity and success of Pet Peanut has spawned many other products. T-shirts, baseball caps, coffee mugs, fridge magnets, and other unique items can be purchased right here. They will provide many years of use and enjoyment and live up to the original goal of Pet Peanut - To make people happy.
