CatLadyBox May 2020 Review
CatLadyBox is always full of fun, cat-themed lifestyle items. Let’s see what was in store for May:
I love how the information cards have custom artwork every month. And the back has more information about the items in the box. This month has a “cat mom” theme.
There was also a card with a spoiler for next month’s theme.
Cat Mom Tote – Listed Value $18.99
I like to use totes like this for in-progress cross-stitch projects as they’re about the right size to hold fabric in a hoop plus instructions, thread, scissors, and whatever else I need. And they can easily be put away to keep the projects away from cats, who show an undue interest in anything involving bits of yarn or thread (which happens to be most of my hobbies). This seems pretty sturdy so I could probably also use it to shuttle files or my laptop back and forth to the office, once I am going back to the office, which doesn’t look to be anytime soon. But still. Most of my other totes are currently occupied so it is nice to have a backup.
Cat’s Meow Raglan Tee – Listed Value $19.99
I wore this for a full 24 hours and I can tell you it is comfortable for sleeping, lounging around the house, and exercising. No, you don’t get to see a picture, I have been too lazy to dye my hair and my roots look awful. But this is a very comfortable shirt for being at home and will also be good for weekend errands one of these days.
Brilliant Cat Pendant – Listed Value $27.99
I really like this. It is sparkly. All the stones are in place. And I think the use of one of the ears as a way to attach the chain is clever. I don’t remember if metal tone was selectable this month. (I don’t have a strong silvertone/goldtone preference so I usually just let them surprise me.) One thing that is nice is that even though the cat head part is rather large, because it was open, it doesn’t seem too big or weighty, and it still manages to be delicate.
Cinnamon Roll Catnip Toy – Listed Value $6.99
This is a catnip plush. You can take the paper off and let it unroll, or leave it rolled up. I left it rolled up as my cats tend to prefer more compact toys, and they seemed interested in me rolling it across the floor as well. This is very soft.
Tulip Catnip Toy – Listed Value $4.99
Here is the other toy this month, it is made from felt so it has a different texture from the cinnamon roll, but it is also soft. My cats are really interested in things with different textures so I was happy the toys were rather different from one another this month. My boys, especially, liked rubbing their faces on this.
Here are some kitty photos:
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $78.95 for the May 2020 (Crazy) CatLadyBox. I did have to take all the values from the information card, but that’s what the items will sell for once they are up in the CatLadyBox shop (they were not yet there as of the writing of this review). I find all of the human items fun and/or useful and I liked that the two toys were somewhat different from one another, as that is more interesting for my cats. I would say this was a pretty typical month in terms of the item types.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Officially your subscription would start with June’s box, but way back when I signed up, I was contacted to say there were a few of the current month’s box left over and asked if I’d like one of those. So it may be worth inquiring.
Value Breakdown: At a price of $39.99 for this box, you are paying approximately the following per item:
- Tote $9.62
- Shirt $10.13
- Pendant $14.18
- Cinnamon Roll Toy $3.54
- Tulip Toy $2.53
