KitNipBox February 2021 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 had a sweets/candy theme.
Included in the box is this card, which features a cute illustration and info on the opposite side of what you'll find in the box.
Now, on to the items:
AFP Kitty’s Sweet Adventure Gameboard Crinkle Mat – Listed Value $15
Usually, there are seven items in the box (six toys and a package of treats) but because this item was significantly larger than usual, with a higher value, there were only six items this month. This is a mat that looks vaguely like a Candyland game (minus any trademark infringement, of course!) and has a smooth surface on one side and a fuzzy surface on the other side, as well as crinkle paper inside. Madison and Sneaky found it particularly interesting when I put treats under this and they had to find the treats. I’m always happy when I can get my older cats to play with toys like this, so I’d call this a win!
Safemade 100% Catnip Popsicle Cat Toy – Listed Value $5
This is one of two toys that were quite similar this month, usually, the toy types are a little more varied. (However, they did a great job sticking to the theme.) This is a medium-sized fuzzy plush toy with all catnip and no stuffing inside. Based on my cats’ reaction, I’d say the catnip was still pretty potent. The boys (Madison and Monkey) were both happy to rub their faces on it, but I think in the end this will be more of a Monkey toy as it’s big enough to wrestle with and that is more of a Monkey thing to do.
Paws ‘n Purrs All Catnip Ice Cream Cone Cat Toy – Listed Value $5
This is the second of the two similar toys. It has a similar surface texture and size to the popsicle toy. (Safemade and Paws ‘n Purrs are two brands that I’ve only seen in KitNipBox.) It seems well-made. Like the popsicle toy, both boys wanted to rub their faces on it, and also like the popsicle toy, I suspect this will be more of a Monkey toy.
Playful Pet Purrfect Cupcake Cat Toy - Listed Value $5
This is a little different; it is plush with stuffing so it is somewhat lighter in weight than the ice cream cone and popsicle. It also rolls a little bit, although not necessarily predictably since it’s not perfectly round. Sneaky showed more interest in this than I expected and I didn’t even have to rub freeze-dried meat on it (if I do that, she will LICK toys).
Leap Gumdrop Mice Cat Toy Trio – Listed Value $4
These are small, tossable mouse toys, with a fuzzy surface that’s different from the ice cream and popsicle toys. Madison used to play fetch with toys like this – although he’s older now (he was born in 2017) and doesn’t play fetch any longer, he liked to watch me throw them anyway, and went over and sniffed them after they landed.
Wellness Kittles Grain-Free Chicken and Cranberries Recipe Crunchy Cat Treats (2 oz) – Retail Value $2.37
These are crunchy treats that are pretty small (good for weight control, I guess). All the cats like them. (This is a brand that shows up in KitNipBox and other cat subscription boxes fairly often.) They are made in the U.S. and they are not particularly stinky, plus the bag is resealable for freshness. I don’t really think the cranberries are at a high enough level to have any effect on urinary health but the main thing is my cats like eating them. Sneaky and Madison also enjoyed hunting for the treats under the crinkle mat toy. (Monkey is not bright enough to figure things like that out.)
On to the kitties:
(Sneaky is calico, Monkey is tan and white, and Madison is black.)
Verdict: I wasn’t able to calculate a total value for this month’s KitNipBox, because most of the items were not available for separate purchase online. Overall this was a good box for us. Although two of the toys were similar in texture and size, the other toys were quite different. I liked the inclusion of the crinkle mat for a change of pace as I do enjoy when subscription boxes mix things up a little bit instead of sticking to a formula month after month. Every toy appealed to at least one cat (it does help if you have several) and all the cats enjoyed the treats.
