I have ordered numerous wands with a leather strand but this one is made poorly. The leather is way too weak and breaks very easily. Before the first day was over the strand was broken. Looking back I had ordered the same one a short time back and it too broke right away. I thought I was ordering a different one because as one can see the catalog photo does not match the product. Look for a different wand to buy. I am not trying to hammer Chewy with this review. I will contact customer service and as always they make things right - but this wand is not up to their standards IMO.
This wand might be workable if you have a kitten or a cat who does not like to play hard. Unfortunately, ethical leather makes an inadequate toy. I bought four, and they were all unusable in the space of three weeks. Even tying the broken pieces of the leather together did not allow for longer use.
Leather strap continues to break. I've had to reattach 3 times; not easy to do. However this is one of my Cat's favorite toys so I continuously try to fix it!
Lasted only one play time. Called leather cord, but it is like paper and broke right away. Purchased these in the past and they were great. These should not be sold, totally disappointing toy.
I have a awesome leather strand teaser i got from a friend. My cats have chewed the mouse multiple times. I Was looking for another better made one and was excited to see leather strand. Well its not real leather, cause it broke the 1st day. A lil pull from the cat and it was done. Boooooo I was duped. I would be willing to pay more for Better quality made toys.
This toy used to have a different design, a longer wand, a flexible tip, and a higher quality toy. Wand is only 18", string is really short and not leather. The toy was already fraying before it was even used. Waste of money.
Previously, the toy was a better quality and a slightly different design, with flexible plastic between the stick and the leather string. New ones are less substantial and are falling apart. Too bad because cats LOVE this toy that closely resembles prey. Manufacturer needs to read these reviews and go back to the former quality or they'll lose customers. Buy at your own risk :(
my cat loves this toy and price is reasonable. good buy
We bought this for our kitten and she loved it. The first one was fluffy and it was her favorite toy. Unfortunately it broke extremely easily, the same day we got it. The good news is we could still use it as a toy to toss around. We bought a new one and when it arrived it had orange, hard gunk on it. (See photos) We anticipated a color difference but the new one was extremely flat and far less fuzzy. Chewy sent a replacement and it arrived in the exact same condition but a different color. I wouldn't recommend this product and we won't be purchasing from this brand again.
My cats loved it for the few minutes we were able to play with it. My largest cat broke the string within 10 minutes then ran off with his "prize".
