Bullymake Box Subscription Review + Coupon – April 2017
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 86 right now; she has changed weight in the past few months due to medication issues).
My Subscription Addiction paid for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
This review is of the Toys-only, 80-pound, $39 a month, box.
The Subscription Box: Bullymake Box
The Cost: $39 a month (save with 3, 6, and 12-month subscriptions)
COUPON: Use code Bullymake5 to save $5 off your first box!
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!) and Canada for $8
Good to know: if you want a toys-only box, you must select that during sign-up. Otherwise, you will get the default box, which does include some treats.
Keep Track of Your Subscriptions: Add this box to your subscription list or wishlist!
Not all boxes are the same due to the fact that you can choose your dog’s size in 10-pound increments, choose a toys-only box, etc., but there is usually an information card highlighting an item or two from the box.
Bullibone Bacon – Value $11.99
The bone is designed this way so the dog can grasp the end with his/her paws and hold on while chewing. Nyx actually used it this way, too (see below)! She thought this was pretty fun and didn’t do too much damage to it.
Bullymake Hexnut – Listed Value $18
This is the Bullymake exclusive toy this month. Nyx seemed most interested when I spread some of her wet food (which is hydrolyzed and has the consistency of thick Jello or something) around the inside of the ring. (This isn’t in the Bullymake shop yet so I took the value from the information card.)
Mammoth Flossy Chews in Medium (color 3-knot tug) – Value $5.05
We get these fairly often, as well as variations on them, in Bullymake Box. But that is OK because they hold up well and Nyx likes them. (Nyx’s idea of fun with a rope toy is to grip it in her teeth and then flop down on the ground so my husband can drag her around. That is not so easy to do with a dog her size, but she has so much fun!)
JW Chompion (large) – Value $6.87
Here is another toy we’ve received fairly often in dog subscription boxes. If your dog can have treats, there are holes on the ends that would fit something like a bit of jerky or a bully stick. Nyx likes to just chew on them and sometimes she wants to play fetch with them in the living room. JW toys are pretty long-lasting.
T & Z Rugby Ball with Rope – Value $14.15?
I can’t find these for sale in the US. This appears to be a French product based on the label. I found it for sale in Hong Kong so I converted the price, which is reasonable for a dog toy. Nyx mostly chewed on the rope so far but this one is still in good shape so she’ll get to play with it again. You’ll often get an international toy in this subscription but that makes it fun; these things are not easy to find in the US!
Here are some shots of Nyx enjoying toys from the box. (Whenever she looks jealous or apprehensive, she’s eyeing Angus. As if a 10-pound cat had any interest in taking toys away from a Rottweiler.)
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $56 for the April 2017 Bullymake Box. That is a great value for a box full of durable dog toys that cost around $40 on a month-to-month basis. If you subscribe to the toys-only box, like we do, you’ll get a few repeats over time, but Nyx has no idea that she already has one or two of these items – they’re *different* ones, so they’re new to her! And I like that you usually get a few exclusive or hard-to-find toys in this subscription.
Note: if you want a toys-only box, you must select that during sign-up. Otherwise , ou will get the default box, which does include some treats.
What do you think of the April 2017 Bullymake Box? Do you subscribe to any dog or cat boxes?
