KitNipBox December 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 Christmas 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.

Playful Pet Holiday Wand – Listed Value $7

This wand has a very long dangly part that is some type of soft material (kind of like velour but more flexible). Maybe fleece is the word I’m looking for? Anyway, this isn’t the best for pictures because of the length of the dangly part although it is great if your cat doesn’t want to be quite so close to you when playing. Angus enjoyed this the most but he is definitely a fan of wand toys so that’s not surprising.

Paws ‘n Purrs Catnip Candy Pillow Toy – Listed Value $6

This was the largest toy this month and it had two different textures, one for the central pillow part (which has catnip but also stuffing) and one for the little twists at the ends. Monkey likes this type of toy quite a lot, although he wasn’t feeling too playful when I was taking pictures (I think he wanted to sleep on the bed; all the cats have moved to the bedroom for winter, where it is warmest). I’ll put it in one of his usual haunts so he can wrestle with it when he’s a bit more energetic.

Safemade All Nip Winter Hat – Listed Value $6

This has only catnip, no stuffing, and while it’s kind of knitted, it seems unlikely to be unraveled by cats. (However, you should always supervise your cat with new toys and take them away if they start to get damaged.) Madison showed a lot of interest in this, but that is not surprising based on his past preferences. I couldn’t get him to go full-on catnip crazy, though.

SFG Purrfect Present Toss Toy – Listed Value $5

This is a fuzzy toy with ribbons and it somewhat smaller than the candy toy. Monkey wanted to rub his face on it and I can’t say right now whether he or Angus will get the most use out of this. I like the combination of textures; this is something that gets a lot of interest from my crew.

Leap Holiday Stocking – Listed Value $5

This is another one that I’m pretty sure is all catnip inside. Madison also showed interest in this. (He tends to prefer the all catnip ones to the ones that also have stuffing.) This is another one with a fuzzy texture similar to the present and the reindeer (see below).

All for Paws Holiday Reindeer Toss Toy – Listed Value $5

This is the smallest of the toys this month and so I suspect Angus will be the most interested. (I let him off the hook for photos after he played with the wand, though, because if I try too hard to get pictures with too many items, the cats start avoiding me. So I let their moods guide me.) This, like numerous other toys this month, has a soft, fuzzy texture, although the antlers and ears and nose are a little different. This is small enough for larger cats like mine to toss around.

Wellness Kittles Chicken and Cranberries Treats – Retail Value $2.37

These are crunchy treats. I’m not sure the cats care about cranberries although theoretically, the cranberry should help with urinary tract health. Sneaky will be eating most of these because she loves them and because she gets the most treats (it’s a way to get her into the bathroom for her asthma inhaler treatments). But Madison and Monkey also liked them.

Here are your gratuitous kitty photos for the month:

 

P.S. If it looks like Angus is missing one of his front bottom teeth, it’s because he is. (Actually he is missing at least six teeth. He has oral disease but this is being monitored by the vet.)

Verdict: I calculated a value of about $36.37 for the December KitNipBox, which is comfortably over the month-to-month cost of the box and near the average value for this subscription. There were a lot of toys with the fuzzy texture this month and I might have liked to have a bit more variety, but it was nice to have different sizes of toys and some plush + catnip as well as some “all catnip” toys. The wand and treats were also well-liked, and of course everything nicely fit the holiday theme.

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 December’s box if you sign up now.

COUPON: Use code SUBSCRIPTIONADDICTION15 to save 15% off your first box!

Value Breakdown: This box costs $29.99 including free shipping, which means that each of the 7 items in the box has an average cost of $4.28.

  1. The cat photos made my day!! My boy has asthma also. He was a feral so getting him to use a machine is impossible. Any tips?

    • Sneaky is really food responsive, so we just have some treats we give her before and after. Also it helps to have two people doing it.

      Also if you get the adapter, order generic Flovent from Canada, it costs waaaaaaay less than in the US (where there is no generic).

  2. Urgh I didn’t get the candy toy in mine. I feel cheated!

    • If you only received 6 items (i.e., 5 toys and a treat), please let them know that something was missing from your box. If you got a different toy instead, sometimes that just happens and they do say on their information card that items may occasionally vary.
