KitNipBox June 2018 Review

KitNipBox has monthly themes. Around holidays, they are holiday themes, but you can never predict what it’ll be at other times:

The information card included a list of items in the box. They included values and I have used a lot of these below because KitNipBox toys can be hard to find for sale online. This month had a “walk in the woods” theme.

Playful Pet Bird Door Dangler – Listed Value $6

This is meant to hang over a door or from a door jamb and then your cat can jump up and get the little bird. I don’t really want Angus jumping at this in the middle of the night (his most active time) so we used it sort of like a wand toy during the day. He was particularly interested in the feathers.

All for Paws Wise Owl

All for Paws Wise Owl – Listed Value $4

This is a lightweight felt cat toy with catnip (of course). My older boys (so, Mr. Kitty, Monkey, and Madison) liked rubbing their chins on this one. (I don’t really care *how* they use toys as long as there is some kitty stimulation going on!)

SFG Bandit the Raccoon Sisal Toy – Listed Value $6

This is another catnip toy but it is a bit larger/heavier and it has a sisal bottom part with a dangly tail. The mix of textures drew the attention of several of my cats (that is something they are into lately).

Leap Cat Grass Seeds

Leap Cat Grass Seeds – Listed Value $3

We have some cat grass growing right now thanks to another subscription box, but as long as I keep receiving it in boxes, I never have to buy the seeds myself! So I am hanging on to this for future use in my existing planter. Mr. Kitty and Monkey like cat grass (I don’t let Mr. Kitty have much, but he seems OK with a little.)

Bench and Field Holistic Natural Cat Treats – Retail Value $5.99 (found here for $4.99)

I have never heard of this brand of treats before. And I think the container is honestly a little strange for cat treats. However, my cats LOVED them. Sneaky kept stealing them from Madison but Madison did get a few and Angus also liked them a lot. These were probably the highlight and best new discovery of the box. They were kind of hard but not as hard as, say, a dog biscuit, and they were shaped like little fish.

All for Paws Woodland Branch Kicker

All for Paws Woodland Branch Kicker – Listed Value $5

This is listed as a “kicker” but it is smaller than a lot of other kickers (which is fine, as my cats prefer smaller toys). The “wood” part of this has a very unusual texture that Monkey found fascinating. I expect Angus will play with this a lot, too.

All for Paws Leaf Wand

All for Paws Leaf Wand – Listed Value $7

And lately, KitNipBox has been providing a wand toy in every box. I am not complaining at all – Sneaky and Angus pretty much always love wand toys. Angus liked the bird dangler a bit more this time around, but Sneaky was totally into this. It had a bell in one (or more) of the leaves.

Gratuitous cat photos below:

These treats were popular.

Angus stalks the bird toy.

And he caught it! (He spent a long time licking the feathers.)

Madison can be silly sometimes.

But most of the time, he is serious.

Monkey likes to sniff everything (he wouldn’t eat the treat but Angus took care of it for him).

This one is a bit blurry but she kept moving too close to the camera at the last minute.

I love how Sneaky was totally into this toy but looks bored in this photo.

Sneaky bites a stick!

Mr. Kitty with a friend. (He has been rubbing at his eye so we put the cone on to keep him from doing that. He goes to the veterinary ophthalmologist again soon.)

Verdict: I calculated a value of about $37 for the June KitNipBox. I appreciated the variety of toy types and I think the box contents show you can stick with a theme while still providing different kinds of items. I know I haven’t provided links for most of the products, and that’s because I can’t usually find these brands for sale at retail prices online. I do occasionally see them in other cat subscription boxes, and I have found them at wholesale websites before (just not with retail prices), so while I don’t think you would be able to find some (or all) of these items at stores, I feel like Kitnipbox is probably sourcing them from wholesale suppliers, which is a perfectly reasonable thing to do. Also, those treats were hugely popular, probably some of the best we’ve received in a while.

  1. I used to get this box for my 2 cats but enough with the toys and only 1 of them would eat the treats. Anything on a rod or string would be broken with hours.

  2. I remember buying those same treats from Trader Joe’s. I don’t know if they still sell them there since I haven’t shopped there in a while, but just an FYI. Although with all the pet boxes you review, you probably don’t have a shortage of treats lying around! 😉

    • They do still sell them at Trader Joe’s. I get them for my kitties!

    • Yeah, I was going to mention that they’re available at Trader Joe’s. My cats go absolutely nuts for them & they’re not big treat fans normally.
