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 August 2018 Review
There wasn’t a theme 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.
Petsport Flossy Bone (large) – Estimated Value $9
This is mostly available from third party sellers on Amazon, at multiple price points, so I took a value kind of near the center. This is mint-flavored and is supposed to help improve your dog’s oral health as well as provide entertainment. Rope toys don’t last long with Nyx, but she’s already played with this once and it’s still intact, and for her, that’s pretty good.
Bullymake Star Chew – Estimated Value $18
I don’t know if this is the same toy or not because it is a totally different color, but I figure the value is going to be the same. (This came without a label so I’m only guessing it is the same or a very similar item.) Anyway, this is another toy that Nyx absolutely loves and that will give her several play sessions (at least) before she damages it too much.
Bullymake Box Sweet Tooth – Listed Value $18
There’s usually one nylon toy each month and this month it is this tooth shape. Nyx had a bit of trouble wrapping her brain around this one, which was fun to watch, plus it kept her occupied for longer. She did most of her chewing on the roots of the tooth so far. (This is flavored, but it does not have a weird smell, for which I am thankful.) You can see some pictures of her with it below.
Bullymake Rocket Man – Listed Value $18
There’s also usually one hard rubber toy each month. These are often variations on a KONG model (i.e., larger hole in the bottom for inserting treats or peanut butter or something and a smaller hole in the top to prevent suction problems) but with different shapes and sizes. I’m holding off giving this to Nyx because she had too many treats lately and it is affecting her digestive system and I need to give her insides a break for a few days. (When she is doing better I will give her this with a bit of peanut butter inside and she will lick it obsessively.)
Here are a few shots of Nyx with the tooth toy. These nylon chews are the highlight of her month.
Verdict: I calculated a value of $63 for the August 2018 Bullymake Box, but please be aware this is based on estimates and information card values. I do feel that the contents of this box were representative of other “toys only” months of Bullymake Box (and of course the Bullymake branded toys are the same for everyone). I would not say that every single toy from this subscription holds up for months on end, but they last longer than average with Nyx, who has always been a very destructive chewer, and this month was no exception. The nylon chews were particular favorites for Nyx.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, your first shipment would be September. 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.
