November 2018 Barkbox Review
This might be the biggest Barkbox yet – 3 toys, 2 bags of treats, a chew, and Mac’s antlers – very exciting! This isn’t the norm for Barkbox – we typically see 2 toys, 2 treats, and a chew.
This cute little dog-written message accompanies the information card about items in the box.
Buckles is howling to get underway.
Max’s Antler – Value $6
One fun item from this box is a little dog accessory.
It adjustable with a bit of velcro – but always has some stretch to it.
Popping this on Buckles immediately turned him into The Grinch.
The Grinch Toy – Value $10
The first toy for The Grinch is…The Grinch, of course. It has a little bit of everything, bungee arms, squeakers, and crinkly paper – all in this nice little plush package.
The Grinch is the perfect size for Buckles. He tossed this toy around for quite a bit.
Grinchy Gift – Value $10?
This wasn’t included in our app, so it was a bit of a surprise toy. The Grinchy Gift toy is one of those now-classic Barkbox toy-within-a-toy. Inside, there is a little rubber ball.
This was a bit less optimal of a toy for Buckles (and he wouldn’t enjoy the little ball inside) – but I do like how Barkbox is doing a ton of usable toys within plush toys, just in case your dog tears this thing apart.
Nutty Stu – Value $10
The third and final toy is another plush toy. Nutty Stu has a tube squeaker and crinkly areas for your dog to tear apart.
Like The Grinch toy, this is a great size toy for our dog – Buckles was tossing this around on set, too.
Chew On This Pork Treat – Value $8
The first of two treat bags are bite-sized pork treat. They are wheat, soy, corn, and grain-free – this is absolutely what we need for Buckles.
Both treats were perfectly bite-sized and soft. The pork treat turned out to be the favorite of the two options.
Tis My Checkin. Tisn’t Yours! Treats – Value $8
Bite-size chicken squares are an easy win for Buckles – he loves anything chicken-related. These are wheat, soy, and corn-free.
These little squares are soft and perfect for small/medium size pups. Barkbox’s Bark brand treats are always made in the USA, too.
Beef Burger Chew – Value $5
The final item in the box is a burger-flavored chew from Happy Howie’s dog treats. This thing is very hard – to the point where it was hard to snap it apart – so we decided to not let Buckles have a piece…that didn’t stop him from trying:
There’s a whole photo series of me trying to fight this from him – his little body has so much power.
Verdict: November’s special edition Grinch box is a lot of fun and packed with goodies. All in all, this is easily our favorite delivery from Barkbox yet – in terms of the number of items and quality of items, this was just top-notch.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Customer care let us know that your first box will now always be either their Welcome Box or the current month’s box, followed by the normal schedule the following month.
