KitNipBox February 2019 Review
KitNipBox has monthly themes. Around holidays, they are holiday themes, but you can never predict what it’ll be at other times. This month it was an office 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.
Safemade Stylish Polka Dot Bowtie – Listed Value $5
This was adorable on my kitties although it was kind of difficult to adjust the length and after about the fourth cat, the bowtie part came unglued from the collar part. Probably it should’ve been sewn on instead.
All for Paws Faux Leather Briefcase – Listed Value $5
The faux leather on this was really interesting to both Sneaky and Angus. They spent a lot of time investigating. This toy also makes noise and is small enough for cats to bat around.
All for Paws Boss Cat – Listed Value $5
This is a little bigger than the briefcase and has a totally different texture, sort of like a fine canvas? It’s hard to describe. But anyway, KitNipBox was really doing a good job with the different toy textures this month. Monkey rubbed his face all over this but it didn’t make for very good pictures.
Max CEO Desk Placard – Listed Value $5
I guess you’d call this a kicker toy. Anyway, the shiny fabric outer part has yet another new texture. Angus and Sneaky were interested in this one, as well. This is lightweight and on the small side for a kicker (which is good, as my cats aren’t into the huge ones).
LEAP Computer Mouse – Listed Value $5
This is fairly large but not heavy and is the only toy (other than the dangler at the end of the wand) with a fuzzy texture. Although I think the string “tail” was the most interesting part for my crew.
Inclover Smile Dental Treats (2.1 oz) – Retail Value $7.49
I was kind of surprised by the value for these on the information card, but when I found them for sale online, it was for the same price. These happen to be a supplement as well as a treat, and it is recommended to give 2-3 per day (although the website where I found them for sale says more are safe, I’m not sure you’d want to run through these as fast as treats that cost 1/3 as much). Sneaky, Monkey, and Madison all enjoyed these.
Pencil Wand – Listed Value $7
Most months, there is a wand toy in Kitnipbox and I am happy about this. Sneaky and Angus love wand toys and they both had fun with this one. The pencil has a fuzzy texture but I think the stretchy string was honestly the big draw as both of them chewed on it a bit.
Kitty photo time!
Getting ready to pounce.
Biting the pencil.
Angus inspects some of the other toys.
This toy earned some chin rubbing from several cats.
Eating a treat.
If the bowtie isn’t looking so good here, it’s because these pictures were the last ones taken before the bow fell off.
Monkey wanted to rub his face on everything.
I like the look on his face as he thinks about the treats.
Monkey is good at posing with bowties.
Sneaky enjoyed all the parts of the wand toy.
She also liked the treats. She did not care for the bowtie so much.
Mr. Kitty gets to model all the costumes because he sits still and doesn’t fight me very much.
Verdict: I calculated a value of $39.49 for the February KitNipBox. 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. Anyway, the pencil wand was probably my cats’ favorite, although all the different toy textures and sizes kept my kitties’ interest this month, and it was fun to try some treats that I’d be reluctant to buy because of the price.
