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 box. (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.
About Bullymake Box
The Subscription Box: Bullymake Box
The Cost: $39 a month (save with 3, 6, and 12-month subscriptions)
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!), Canada for $8, and Internationally for an additional cost
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.
Bullymake Box April 2018 Review
There was a military or weapons theme to the toys for this month:
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.
There was also a card announcing a contest where you could win a free year of this subscription.
Spunky Pup Snack and Chew Antler (L) – Retail Value $16
We have received this toy in Bullymake Box before (that can happen if you get the “toys only” version like we do). So I can say that the antler part holds up longer than the beef part. Nyx enjoys these quite a bit, although I only let her have it for a few minutes at a time so she doesn’t eat the whole beef part at once. So far it is not causing any dietary issues for her!
Pawpeller by Bullymake – Listed Value $18
For the past year or so (maybe longer), we’ve gotten at least one Bullymake-branded nylon chew per month. These are some of Nyx’s favorite toys, ever, so I am not complaining. She’s played with this one a few times now and it is still in good shape. I can’t tell if it’s supposed to be flavored or not, but Nyx doesn’t seem to care.
Bullymake Asteroid – Retail Value $16
I think this is the Bullymake Asteroid from a previous box, although there was no label. This is sold out on the Bullymake site but I’ve linked to the sold out listing for price reference. Nyx isn’t totally sold on plain rubber toys alone, but if I put just a dab of peanut butter in the depressions, she will lick this until I take it away.
Pawnade by USA K9 – Listed Value $17
This is a KONG-type toy in terms of material and design (larger hole in the bottom, smaller hole in the top, so no worries about suction). Nyx is mostly into this for the peanut butter I put inside it. She will abandon some treat-dispensing toys if they are too difficult for her to figure out after 60 seconds, but if she can smell peanut butter, she will not give up. This one is pretty easy to clean, too.
Here are a few shots of Nyx with the propeller toy. This is holding up quite well and she’ll be able to play with it a few more times, at least.
Verdict: I calculated a value of $67 for the April 2018 Bullymake Box. That’s wonderful for four super durable toys. I feel like this month’s contents are pretty representative of what you would get with a toys-only box, although do note that even toys-only boxes for the same weight range may vary from month to month (we accidentally received two boxes one month and they were different). You’ll nearly always get at least one rubber treat-dispensing toy and one nylon chew, but the other items could vary. The propeller was a big win, as was the antler, and Nyx shows plenty of interest in the rubber toys when I put peanut butter on them, so we consider this month a win.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, your first shipment would be May's. You can buy some of the exclusive toys at the Bullymake Shop if something catches your eye. Also, please note that this is the TOYS ONLY version of the box and it is selected for an 80-pound dog. There are some box variations here so you may not always receive the same box as Nyx gets, even if you choose the same profile values when you sign up.
