This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.

Each month, Loot Crate will release a theme that spans across their Core Crate, Loot Pets, Loot Wear, and Loot Crate DX. This month’s theme was BUILD.



Each delivery comes with an information card that details all of your items. It’s looking like, with the reduced price, the typical box includes 3 items + a collar charm.


Each month comes with a collar charm for your pup – just like your month Loot Crate pin. This month you can team up with your pet and sport the Megazord.


Iron Man Plush Tug Toy – Value $10-15?

This month includes two toys, one hard and one soft. The soft toy features Iron Man!


This is made in the US and includes a squeaker at the center along with the rope for tugging. Buckles isn’t much for tug-of-war, but he did play with the plush part for a minute – alas, it was a little too big for him and he passed it off to Penelope.


Alien Flex Rubber Wrench Toy – Value $9.99

The hard toy is a bacon-flavored wrench.




This was a miss for Buckles since he doesn’t like harder plastic or rubber toys – and this one was rock hard. But, the bacon flavoring definitely had him tempted for a bit – but he quickly tapped out.


K-9 Bark Bots Dog Treats – Value $10?

As always, you’ll get a pack of size-appropriate treats for your pup.



This month’s treats were chicken flavored red bark bots! He was really into these treats – I’m really not sure how I feel about the use of Red 40 as the dye, though. Do you watch out for artificial dyes in your dog food?

Verdict: This month was a miss for us based on what our dog like to play with. But, like BarkBox, we typically end up gifting what Buckles rejects, so there is always a happy dog recipient. I’m happy that BarkBox lowered the price point, too – even though it has meant one less item, I think it’s getting a little better overall, even if this month was a miss for our dog.

What did you think of the February ‘BUILD’ Loot Pets?

  1. Missed seeing Buckles! Hope he’s better soon. I will say while my dog enjoyed this box, I really didn’t care for the treats. I HATE giving my dog artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, and wheat (if she eats enough she becomes sick to her stomach and gets itchy and hot spots), so these treats are not going to be fed to her. While she loved the iron man toy, it is very cheaply made. The savior for her was the alien flex wrench, she enjoys chewing on it for hours on end.

  2. Hate when my Bam Bam isn’t himself. Scares me. Never had children so it all goes to him poor little guy thank goodness he is a snuggler. Hope Buckles is well soon. Missed him in the review.

  3. Hi. The Iron Man toy lasted all but 15 mins with my 12 lb male dog. He managed to pull the (glued) rope out of the socket and was pulling out stuffing. None of the other loot pets toys have ever been destroyed like that in this house before. The female dog loves nylabones and they will both occasionally use it so that one is a win…
    It just feels like their quality has gone downhill – last month we had a star trek bowl that had paint bits flaking away after just a couple of uses. I would have gladly continued paying $20 a month for quality products and the little shirts were amazing too. Not sure how to feel about this box now, but we’ve got a subscription until June so we’ll see if it gets any better.

  4. First… Our Best for Buckles to feel Better🤗
    Our situation is a bit different than the other replies. Brewster is a Rescue Pit bull. He loves soft or hard toys. Soft lasting a Few minutes. However he loves tug a war Sooo this month’s is lasting longer… Yippee. He wouldn’t wear the tshirts ..reckon it’s ok with us they didn’t send one butty the shirts are so cute and great for gifting to Friends doggies.
    We would prefer no red dye but normally the treats don’t have the dye therefore one month here n there is ok.

    • Meant to say butttt.. Not butty LoL

      ALeo while typing want to say.. Brewster is very loving.. Gentle but Protective in his stance and bark till we tell him Friend.. then he wags tail and gives a Welcoming lick if the person allows doggie licks. He weights almost 100lbs Sooooooo Folks respect his presence. and he loves car rides. If he hears the word Go.. he goes straight for his leash..puts leash in his mouth and follows us around just in case lol. People in other cars wave to him and Brewster loves the attention at traffic lights. OK.. I’ll shut up now.. Sounds like a Parent talking about their great kids 🙃

      • Aww, I love hearing about your furry kid. Share away. 🙂

  5. Feel better Buckles! We miss your cuteness!

  6. This was my first box and I was disappointed. Bear my dog couldn’t play with the wrench toy it was too big and the iron man toy wasn’t really his thing.

    We have paid for 2 more months so we will see

  7. First they got rid of the human shirt and now the dogs shirt. Nope not buying it. I should have last yr I guess. Shoot.

  8. Aww… hope Buckles gets to feeling better soon!

    I miss the matching t-shirts they used to include 🙁
    Are they going to include a t-shirt occasionally? Or did they completely do away with them?

    • It seems like they’ve cut it out completely – but they haven’t said anything official that I know of.

  9. I was really disappointed this month. I wish the treats weren’t so red. I feel that the dye isn’t good for my dogs. Not worth the risk of someone having an upset stomach. The iron man toy is super cheap feeling and the wrench toy is as hard as a rock.
    Hopefully next month will be better.

  10. aww, feel better Buckles!

    • We’ll give him a little hug for you!
