Purchased this as a new toy for our cat and within minutes the elastic type string was chewed through, and was all swallowed resulting in a trip to the emergency vet for endoscopy. Toy has no durability and the vet said the material is pretty dangerous if ingested! Do not buy if you want your kitty to live!
I wish this was a better made toy for the price. The handle is a thin, unfinished wooden dowel. The protective cap on the end was missing. The string is a piece of fabric covered elastic that started stretching out and breaking with the first use. The animal toy is cute though and my kittens liked that part.
The wand is way shorter that I was hoping. I also thought I would be getting a squirrel, but got a mouse instead. Went back to skim the product listing and saw that it comes in a "variety" of toys. The mouse is so small -- I doubt my kittens will be interested in it when they grow bigger. Do yourself a favor and get something else
I was disappointed that the toy part - a tiny deflated-looking squirrel? - is so unsubstantial. But the string is what my cat is interested in, and that is pretty sturdy. Gave it 2 stars.
The wand is extremely short! Plus, the toy is NOT a squirrel but rather a sad & deflated looking mouse. Am considering a return and will not buy from this brand again.
I thought I was ordering a plush toy as pictured online, what I received was a ratty substitute. When I went back online to verify what I had ordered, I found a statement very low in the stream that this was a "variety" of toys that would be shipped. If I had seen that earlier, I would not have ordered this!
My cat loves this toy - both the springiness and obviously high grade catnip. One drawback is the cord is too short. She was playing with it wildly and the wood handle hit her in the face. And the elastic does come undone. With a longer more tightly attached elastic this would be 5+ stars.
My cat plays with only the string still on the stick. The toy came off and I even had to re string the stick even.
My cat loves wand toys. I'm glad I had not left it laying around and was with her when playing. Received the package Friday. Today is Sunday. Sadly, this wand toy only lasted two play sessions before the elastic broke and is now hanging by a thread. Will have to be disposed for the safety of the cat. She did enjoy it while it lasted but could tell it was not going to be a favorite. If elastic lasted, it would of been a good toy to have in rotation.
This was not designed well and was not useful. Stick too short; cord too short. Also, the cord was frayed when it came, and the stuffed creature was attached by only a few threads. I cut the creature off and put it out for our cat to play with. But it doesn't seem to have much catnip in it - our cat doesn't react to it like she does with other catnip toys.
