KitNipBox October 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 a Halloween 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.

Kitnipbox October 2019 Wand

Paws ‘n Purrs Bats for Cats Wand – Listed Value $7

There’s usually a wand toy in this box and this month, of course, it has a felt bat. The bat has a rattle in it and is easy for kitties to hook their claws into. Angus wanted to play but the dog kept coming to investigate so I didn’t get any good pictures. Sneaky was also interested.

Kitnipbox October 2019 Scarecrow

All for Paws Catnip Scarecrow – Listed Value $6

This is a small catnip plush with a variety of interesting textures (hat, shirt, pole, hands) and Madison spent an extra long time sniffing it although he was otherwise camera shy this time around.

Kitnipbox October 2019 Kicker

‘R Squad Ghostly Boos Crinkle Kicker – Listed  Value $5

This has a canvas-like texture and is perfect for Monkey. He circles the house throughout the day, looking for the sunny spot, and I keep some toys for him in the home office, which is sunny in the morning, and I catch him playing with them, so that’s where I’ll leave this. (He really likes canvas.)

Kitnipbox October 2019 Mouse

Leap All Nip Halloween Treat Mouse – Listed Value $5

Sneaky was super interested in the tail on this, which you can see below. Madison also seemed to like it and Angus wanted to play as well, but the dog (once again) started getting in the way.

Kitnipbox October 2019 Bag

Safemade All Nip Trick or Treat Bag – Listed Value $5

This was a big hit with Sneaky. It didn’t make for good pictures but she would not stop licking it. It was quite wet when I finally took it away. There’s no stuffing, only catnip. She also liked the strings on it, as did Angus.

Kitnipbox October 2019 Hat

Max All Nip Crinkle Witch Hat – Listed Value $4

This is more of an Angus thing. It is very small and light, plus it is felt, and felt toys are some of his favorites.

Kitnipbox October 2019 Treats

Purebites Freeze Dried Chicken Treats (0.6 oz) – Retail Value $3.49 (found here for $2.29)

Monkey and Sneaky liked these. Angus wanted some but he can’t have chicken. This is a pretty good brand; I used to buy their duck all the time for Mr. Kitty because it was the only treat he could eat. These are single-ingredient treats that are made in the US.

He sniffed the treats but he can’t eat them because of his IBD.

Sneaky is really the star of this review. She had a lot of fun with a lot of different items from the box.

Verdict: I calculated a value of about $35.49 for the October KitNipBox, which is above the cost of the box by quite a bit. 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. There were several different textures and fabrics on the toys this month, and my cats appreciated these. Sneaky had the most fun with the box, with her favorites being the wand, treat bag, and mouse (and of course the treats).

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Your first KitNipBox will ship right after your payment processes, so you should still be able to get October’s box if you sign up now.

Value Breakdown: This box costs $29.99 including free shipping, which means that each of the 7 items (counting the wine bottles as one since I think I was only supposed to get one) in the box has an average cost of $4.28.

  1. Does this company have a store where you can buy items from past boxes?

  2. Hi Ragan, thank you for the terrific review. I love all of your reviews – the beauty box reviews for your insightful scientific take, the pup box ones because we get to see Nyx, and your kitty reviews because your kitties are delightful. I just wanted to let you know how sad I was to read when Mr Kitty died (I actually got pretty teary myself reading that review of yours). I’m sorry. Still, it is a joy to see how well-loved your furry family members are. Thank you for letting us vicariously share the beauty and differing personalities of Madison, Sneaky, Angus and Monkey.

    • Thanks! It’s hard to believe, but Mr. Kitty has been gone for almost six months. I still miss him a lot. He was my first cat and I had him from when he was two months old, he would’ve been 15 last month.

  3. Thank you Ragan for the review and your cute little kitty’s pics playing and having fun! Our dog does the same thing go after the kitty’s things. Lol
