KitNipBox May 2020 Review
KitNipBox has monthly themes. Around holidays, there are holiday themes, but you can never predict what it’ll be at other times. This month it was a 1980s theme. (I lived through the entirety of the 1980s but I think I have more '90s nostalgia, personally.)
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 Mixtape Interactive Wand - Listed Value $7
You'll get a lot of wands in this subscription box but they are all a little different and I find that different dangly parts appeal to different cats. This was a cassette tape with ribbons hanging out. Of course I remember such things from the 1980s! Anyway, Sneaky was a fan of this. She grabbed it and bit it, which was fun to watch.
Safemade All Nip Scrunchie Set - Listed Value $6
I still use scrunchies although not in neon colors. These are a little stretchy but probably wouldn't work to hold your hair back. They did look stylish on Monkey's tail, although I'm not sure he agreed with me.
All for Paws Furspray Kicker - Listed Value $6
This is somewhat larger and is good for kitty wrestling (or, for Madison and Monkey, face-rubbing). This has a velour sort of texture that is a little different from that of the scrunchies. I like all the different textures and toy sizes this box typically provides, as it means there will be something fun for nearly every cat.
Playful Pet Pawfection Pillow Toy - Listed Value $5
I don't remember the game Perfection (I Googled it) but I guess that's what this was a reference to. (Probably if it involves tiny pieces like the images looked like they had, my mom didn't want it in the house, because I had three younger siblings. She also didn't let us have Barbie shoes. But she had been a kindergarten teacher for many years before having kids and I guess she knew what kinds of things kids try to eat?) Anyway, this is a slightly different shape and weight than the hairspray toy and the outer fabric also has a different texture. This is a Monkey item for sure.
'R Squad Stylish 80s Bowtie - Listed Value $5
I knew this wouldn't show up on Madison so I put it on Monkey and it disappeared into his fur. I did get a good model and it was not the kitty I would've expected. This is meant to be a quick dress-up item and not a real collar, so don't leave it on your cat unsupervised.
Paws 'n Purrs All Nip Awesome 80s T-Shirt Toss Toy - Listed Value $5
This is a small toy and a good size for tossing. The outer fabric is soft and there's no stuffing, only catnip. Madison spent a long time investigating this one. My cats do tend to really like small toys so I'm glad this was in the box!
Emerald Pet Catnip Flavored Dental Treats (3 oz) - Retail Value $3.99
This is a fairly common treat brand for subscription boxes but you can also find it in pet stores (or from Chewy if you're not keen to go into stores these days). These are crunchy treats that are shaped like fish and all three of my cats liked them. Sneaky ate the most but I just found out she has heartworm and I am kind of spoiling her and for her, that means extra food because that's what she likes. (Don't worry about her, she is actually in a good place with her health otherwise and we never would've known except the vet is doing more extensive blood tests during annual visits these days.)
Gratuitous cat photos:
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $37.99 for the May KitNipBox although I did have to use a lot of information card values. I feel like the value is decent, considering it's about $8 over the cost of the box, and there have been a lot of cat subscriptions I've reviewed over the years that didn't meet their promised values, so I'm always happy when one does better than its month-to-month cost. I loved all the different toy types, as did my cats, and I am always happy to see kitty dress-up items like the bowtie. The treats were also pretty popular.
To Wrap Up:
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 about $4.28.
