Smushball Fancy Box Review
Smushball is a Persian cat with her own Instagram account. The folks at Fancy teamed up with Smushball to create a box of goods tailored to our feline friends!
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
The Box: Smushball Fancy Box
The Cost: $25 plus shipping (Shipping was $8.95 for me)
The Products: Feline basics, toys, and a special partner deal.
Ships to: US and Worldwide! (However, this was a limited edition box that is now sold out.)

It’s not too often that I receive a subscription box with no packing material inside. I guess Fancy has a standard size box they use for everything? (The box didn’t come with an information card.)
I’m not sure what I was expecting from a Fancy box for cats but, at first glance, this looked like a pretty normal cat subscription box. (No wall decals!)
Loopies Catnip Clownfish – Value $5
Loopies Catnip Hermie Worm – Value $5
Note: I’m basing all the values here on Amazon prices because I had trouble finding the items elsewhere online.
I think these are really cute. But do the cats like them?
They do! (Sorry the picture is dark. My living room has no natural light and I’d like to see you try to get a cat to pose under the lamp!)
L’Chic Four-in-One Catnip Toy – Value $15
This didn’t come with catnip but that’s not a problem around here – I buy catnip by the pound. I filled the little compartment up with catnip and my cats were interested right away. This is a little big for them to bat around, and sadly, three of my four cats are not smart enough to figure out treat dispensers. However, this is a win for the catnip compartment and feathers.
Rogz Bowls Fishcake Cat Dish – Value $15.47
This seems kind of pricey for a cat dish, but I am in need of a new one (one of my cats has been eating off a saucer lately). It’s cute and it seems sturdy.
This box also came with a couple of stickers and a coupon for 20% off a cat bed/tunnel from PetPlay.com. (I didn’t include this when I calculated the value of the box.) I am having trouble getting the site to load (tried several browsers) so I don’t know how much you’d pay out of pocket to redeem this offer.
This isn’t a completely gratuitous cat picture. I just wanted to let MSA reader nana (click on the link and scroll down through the comments) know that she was right: some cats really like the box.
Verdict: The Smushball Fancy Box has a value a little over $40. The box cost $33.95 (with shipping), and that’s a pretty good value for a pet box. (Cat boxes tend not to have the same outrageous values that a lot of beauty boxes have.) Plus, my cats like the toys and I needed a new dish, so I’ll use everything. It helps that I have four cats with four different personalities – pretty much every toy or treat will appeal to one of them. So this box is a win for me.
