Spring steel wire and rolled cardboard create an irresistible lure for cats and great fun for cat lovers.
Use it as a wand — just lead and they will chase, leap and run in circles.
Every cat I have played with this toy went crazy for it. I do cat sitting and an owner will tell me that the cat won't like it. They always do. I sometimes split up the rolls of the toy, and it's as if kitty is trying to catch a bug, with the unpredictable movement. Also a spritz of catnip spray = very happy cats.
Yes, highly recommend!

Works like a charm! Highly recommend. My only problem is that I had no where to attach it. Tried the door, but my cat started to scratch the paint off. However, he still plays with it despite it being on the floor.
Flimsy but great

After playing with this toy for a few days, I understand why it's so cheap- it doesn't last. My cat's been playing with it for a few days and the cardboard pieces are already starting to fall apart. But obviously with this price, I don't mind buying it over and over, especially because my kitten LOVES it. She has a bunch of fancier toys but this is her favorite. It's so simple, but she goes crazy if I circle it above her or quickly swing it back and forth so she can chase it. She'll even play with it on her own when I'm otherwise occupied. I'll be buying this many times.

I bought this toy with very low expectations given that it's literally just a piece of wire with cardboard rolls on it, however my cat goes CRAZY for this!! This is 100% without a doubt her favorite toy and once it starts to wear out I will for sure be repurchasing!
Simple but the best toy ever

My husband thought I was insane for buying this toy for our two cats (they have tons of toys already) because it was so simple BUT let me tell you! This toy may be simple and silly and possibly mistaken for trash but my cats love this thing more than any other toys. They pick it up and carry it around with them too. I’ve never seen them get so excited over any other toy and we’ve spent lots of money buying toys over the years. This is the best toy hands down! I ended up buying another one so they could both play separately without one hogging it to himself. I highly recommend this toy!! My boys get so much exercise chasing this thing around.

We first found this toy at a specialty cat store 25+ years ago. It is still favorite toy. We replace it when cardboard eventually gets chewed off, but can last years depending on your cats. It is part of daily playtime. It's so simple and inexpensive, but quite a few ways to play with. You barely have to move it to have it erratically moving about like flying insect. One of our cats will hold one end in his mouth and spin fast in circles, his brother copies him. It's his favorite toy, which says something because they have a house full. One will take an end and run with it, while another chases. Can also place under closed door. Highly recommended.

Even our oldest, laziest cat goes ham for this toy. I don’t know what I expected... but I didn’t think it’d be so popular. Our kitties LOVE this thing and are always in the mood to jump and bat at it. I think whoever first made these knew exactly what cats like: a bouncy wire and some cardboard bits.
It’s still holding up pretty well, but even if they break it some day, it’s cheap enough that I’ll buy them again and again. :)
Best cat toy ever had
on Feb 15, 2020
I never write review but this product worth my first. I have four cats and they have very different personalities so far there wasn’t one toy they all play except this one! They all love it!!! And they can all play it the same time. They are very excited about it sometimes they make funny noises! Also, play this with them, you don’t need to do anything more than just hold it. You know some other toys, you move more than your cat does. It is the best two dollars I have ever spent! Actually I think it worth 10 dollars! Whoever designed this product definitely know cats very well!
Best toy ever!

My cats will play with most toys for a short time and then lose interest, but this has kept them entertained for months. It is a simple but ingenious idea. I have several around the house and stick the one end from a drawer or anything that I can attach it to. The cats will bat at it non-stop and never seem to get tired of it. This is the best toy ever!
I can't believe this works

I had absolutely no hope of this working, but it was cheap and I was desperate for a toy to get my cats excited.
And they freaking love it! My lazy cat frequently jumps to catch it! I don't have to use loads of energy to give them some good playtime, and they get the opportunity to really chase after something.
It is frustrating though, that I have to keep such a close eye on them with it though, or I'd rig something up to hold it for them. But it's cardboard and wire, and given more than a few minutes of gnawing on it, i'm sure they'd get hurt.
But I seriously cannot recommend this absurd toy enough. Spend the couple bucks, and your life might just be changed. XD
