Bullymake Box Subscription Box Review – February 2016
Bullymake Box is a monthly subscription box for power chewers. You all have heard about (and seen) some of Nyx’s exploits with plush toys from dog subscription boxes so when I heard about this one, I had to sign up immediately. Nyx is definitely a power chewer! You pick your dog’s weight in 10-pound increments so this is a box for an 80-pound dog (Nyx weighs about 84 right now).
My Subscription Addiction paid for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
The Subscription Box: Bullymake Box
The Cost: $39 a month (save with 3, 6, and 12 month subscriptions)
COUPON: Save $5 off your first box by joining their mailing list (it was a pop-up when I visited the site).
The Products: Toys and treats specifically tailored for heavy chewing dogs (no plushes). You can also choose a “toys only” box. Because of Nyx’s dietary issues, I went with the “toys only” box. You can also enter specific allergy information in a box on the checkout screen.
Ships to: USA (free!)
Check out lots of great boxes for dogs in the Pet Subscription Box Directory and make sure to add Bullymake Box to your subscription list or wishlist!
Note: This box did not come with an information card but it is pretty heavily customized so I would not expect a card.
Hartz Chew ‘n Clean Tuff Bone (large) – Value $7.82
This is bacon-scented and is supposed to improve oral hygiene. I think I can get away with giving it to Nyx every now and then without the bacon flavor causing her any trouble. (One thing I appreciate about this box, by the way, is that the toys are actually size-appropriate.)
Spunky Pup Fetch & Chew (large) – Value $13.50
I had never heard of Spunky Pup until this month, when I got toys from them in at least two separate dog boxes. I’m becoming a fan of the brand! Nyx did pull one end of this off and chewed on the blue bone beneath, but I’m going to be able to give this to her multiple times because she was not able to destroy it!
Spunky Pup Fetch & Glow (large) – Value $6
Nyx is easily amused. Balls are always popular, and this is a good size for her.
Multipet Boingo Ball (medium/large) – Value $14.39
We haven’t had a lot of luck with Multipet plush toys for dogs (we’ve had good luck with them for cats), but we seem to do better with non-plush toys. This is a hard plastic rattle ball with rubber around the outside. Nyx will like this when I give it to her because she’ll think she can pull the rubber off. We’ll see.
Mammoth Flossy Chews with Beef Toss Floss Chew – Value $19.74
The price seems a little high on this one but I only found this for sale on Amazon from third party sellers. Nyx loves rope toys and the nice thing about this rope toy is, she’ll be so interested in the hoof, she doesn’t feel the need to chew on the end in my hand…
And of course a few shots of Nyx enjoying one of the toys from the box:
Verdict: I calculated a value of a little over $61 for the February 2016 Bullymake Box. That is a great value for a dog subscription box, even if the value of the last item is inflated a bit! Also, I feel like they actually pay attention to my dog’s size. You choose in 10-pound increments from a drop down menu. I picked 80 pounds since that was the closest to Nyx’s size, and I actually feel like I received toys appropriate for an 80 pound dog. Additionally, while Nyx has destroyed some Bullymake toys in the past, I feel that on average, they last her longer than toys from a lot of other boxes. Plus, we didn’t get any repeats from last month. So I’m happy with this box!
What do you think of the February 2016 Bullymake Box? Do you subscribe to any dog or cat boxes?
