Preppy Puppy Halloween Ghost Cookie – Listed Value $5.99
Preppy Puppy is a wholesale-only company so I can’t find their prices online (I don’t have a wholesale account, obviously). I’ve used the value from the information card, though, truth be told, it seems a little inflated for a single dog cookie. Anyway, this didn’t have any packaging or ingredients so it is probably not suitable for dogs with allergies or food sensitivities. I’ll be passing it along to a neighbor’s dog to enjoy.
This thing had a high-pitched squeaker in every single checkerboard panel of the body. Seriously annoying for me but Nyx thought it was awesome. I believe subscribers could’ve received one of several different styles from this Halloween version of the product line.
Chase ‘n Chomp Play-It Amazing Squeaker Spaceship – Value $11.99
The sound of this changes based on the position of the ball inside the spaceship. Also, this bounces unpredictably because of the unusual shape. These two things together proved pretty much irresistible to Nyx. She hasn’t destroyed it yet either (though to be fair, she hasn’t had a long time with it because we received five dog subscription boxes in two days so that was a lot of toys to try out).
Nyx has always been a fan of tennis balls. These squeak, which of course she also enjoys. These are a little smaller than a standard tennis ball but that just means Nyx can use them to work towards her goal of getting three tennis balls in her mouth (she’s been able to do two for a long time).
These are sourced and made in the US, which is really important, and I think the combination of fall flavors is nice. These are wheat, corn, and soy free, though they do contain oats and barley. They are also free of animal proteins, so they will be suitable for a lot of dogs with allergies.
Here are some shots of Nyx with one of the toys from the box. She had a lot of fun with this. And she didn’t ruin it!
Verdict: I calculated a value of $44.95 for October’s RescueBox (about $39 with the sale prices). That is higher than the cost of the box on a month-to-month basis, which is great, especially for a box consisting mostly of items you could easily purchase again if you find that your dog particularly likes one of them. I thought the price of the cookie was a bit inflated but even if you knocked it down by a few dollars, you are still getting your money’s worth. Due to Nyx’s dietary issues, I was particularly happy to receive so many toys this month.
