Where can I buy an Octodog?
The purchasing account on the official website has been closed and even eBay and Amazon don't have them. I was planning on giving them as Christmas presents! Are they no longer being made? Surely somebody has some for sale somewhere!

    Out of curiosity, I checked out the octodog.com website and it seems to be working fine. Here is the page to order them: http://octodog.net/order.htm

      Click on Add To Cart and the page says "This merchants' account has been disabled".

        Did you try contacting one of the 11 dealers listed on the website?

      Does anyone know where I can pick up matching buns? Thanks!

        I saw this thing in a different thread and thought it was cool. The mall near me has a kiosk dedicated to tv gadgets like this, maybe yours does too. I just used my paring knife for the same result. They don't like to be grilled when cut like this, let me tell you

            In case anyone gives a fig, I found a place that still has some! PrankPlace.com. Though be warned, their customer service is not so hot. But I was able to score three Octodogs from them. My friends will be so happy come Christamas morning!
