You *can* get those "as seen on TV, not available in stores" products in stores. Most of the drugstores around here have an "as seen on TV product" section. And the local mega-mall has an entire "as seen on TV" store.
Do not waste your money on the Sticky Buddy. It works for the first couple of times and then loses its sticky. The little teeth are handy for raking up the pet hair so you can then pick it up with a vacuum or an old-school lint roller, but that's about all it's good for -- not worth 20 bucks.
