KitNipBox September 2018 Review
KitNipBox has monthly themes. Around holidays, there are holiday themes, but you can never predict what it’ll be at other times. This month it was a back to school theme:
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.
Multipet Catnip Garden (0.5 oz) – Retail Value $2.99
Whenever I get a big bag of catnip like this, I go around and refresh all the cat scratchers in the house (maybe 8 or 9 of them?). That’s what I did here, and the kitties seemed to appreciate it.
All for Paws Straight-A Cat – Listed Value $5
This is a small catnip plush. Mr. Kitty seemed to like it. Maybe because it is also orange and has bad eyesight?
All for Paws Pencil Kicker – Listed Value $5
This was interesting to several cats because, FEATHERS. Which seem securely attached, by the way. This has a fuzzy texture on the pencil part which was also appreciated.
‘R Squad Crinkle Pennant – Listed Value $5
This has some crinkly paper inside and my cats are not so into the noisy toys, but Angus is getting his e-collar off (again) this weekend and he sometimes goes crazy for new toys when that happens, so we will see. This is a larger toy, but still relatively lightweight.
Paws ‘N Purrs Pizza Pillow – Listed Value $5
This is very soft and has a texture that is good for catching a claw/wrestling/tossing around. Mr. Kitty wanted to rest his head on this one (which does also have catnip, by the way). But I think this is another one where Angus will have some fun once he gets out of his cone.
I do like this brand, and Mr. Kitty gets some duck liver from this brand every day, but the shrimp is not the most popular variety among my crew. Sneaky ate these, but she was the only one who did (Madison licked them but didn’t go further).
Tiger Tail Mascot Wand – Listed Value $7
This was the clear winner in the box. Sneaky, Monkey, and Angus all thought it was great. It is a wand with a plush tail and you can see some pictures of them with it below. (I think Sneaky has the best picture.)
Angus didn’t eat this but it was worth a sniff.
Glad to see he can play with the cone on. (We’re going to try taking it off again this weekend.)
I promise you, Madison has a face! Black cats are just difficult to photograph.
Monkey didn’t actually eat this.
Not sure if he was playing or his claw was stuck.
She would hate to know she likes the same toy that Angus does.
Sorry, Mr. Kitty, glasses won’t help you.
He can’t have these treats, but he really wanted them.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $32.98 for the September KitNip Box. Once again, I appreciated the variety of toy types (and textures) 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 these brands 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. I think the wand toy was the clear winner this month, and expect a bit more play activity once Angus (by far my youngest at age 2) is out of his e-collar.
