My cats love love love this toy, as the elastic string adds a whole new dimension to play.
However, after less than a month, it is falling apart:
The seam on the toy has split
The braided legs on the toy are frayed and shedding from my cats' claws
The elastic cord has 2 sections where it I literally hanging on by a thread (may have been present/unnoticed from day one)
Fun kitty toy
on Feb 20, 2021
We bought this because our homemade kitty fishing rod kept losing the fur mice we tried to tie on the end. This one does take care of that problem. Fun, furry critter stays on it's string. The wand is a little short tho & since the string is stretchy, it's actually harder to play with. I've noticed the kids have gone back to the homemade one when playing with the kitty...
I’m very disappointed

I got this for my 7y/o cat Mickey. He’s very strong and he is chubby so he plays harder than an average kitty. His old cat teaser has been around so long that the plastic stick part broke in half and the stuffing was coming out so I bought this because it is stuffing free. Mickey’s only had it for a week and the string snapped in half with hardly any pressure. I guess he chewed on the string a bit while we played and it totally just snapped in half. He hasn’t had it for a whole week yet so I’m very disappointed in this product. May be good for tiny kittens but I’d never recommend this for a full size cat. Total waste of money.

Wonderful toy - I have a Maine Coon, so she's big and plays hard and pulls out stuffing out of everything in minutes, so I worry about her swallowing that stuff. This toy is lovely - no stuffing, good materials - still intact after days of big paws batting at it, and she loves the springy string. Would buy again.
My Cat’s favorite
on Jan 20, 2021
The little grey mouse is literally the only toy my cat likes. We have been through probably 20 of these toys, but she doesn’t care much for the duck or the squirrel. We keep buying them because she loves them, so much, but they break so quickly. They usually only last less than a week before she chews them off. It also has significantly decreased in quality over the last year. I wish there were a way to specify they animal you like!
Cute but not the best

My cat Vivian loved the furry critter on a stick but the cord did not last her biting it during the first play session out of the Chewy box. I actually used duct tape to put it back together for her. Also, the wand needs to be longer, other wise, you are down on the floor too to play.
Fun for the whole family

Both of my cats are having a blast with this toy, every time they can get it away from my toddler long enough to play! I think the cute little mouse at the end is appealing to my daughter, and the cats are loving the catnip, and the stretchiness of the string lets them catch the mouse and jump or run away with it without me losing the stick.
The bunny is my cats favorite toy!
on Jan 4, 2021
My cat is absolutely obsessed with the little gray bunny. He loses it under furniture frequently and once he gets it back he’s carrying it around for hours. He can’t have string so I just cut the toy off and he’s content with that. I’ve purchased many of these and sadly haven’t gotten another bunny :( he’s not interested in any of the other creatures. I’d love to see the option to pick which creature soon!
The catnip smells strange, my cat didn't care for it
on Dec 22, 2020
My cat loves catnip and wand toys so I thought this would be a hit. Instead, she is completely uninterested in this toy. I noticed that the catnip smells noticeably different from the loose dried catnip I've purchased in the past, and the catnip toys I've purchased from other brands, so I think that might be why she doesn't like it. The construction is solid, though, and I like that there isn't any stuffing.
Toy holds up

The cat and I have played with this toy every day since receiving it two weeks ago, and the toy still looks brand new. I've been purchasing other toys on sticks my local box store and they fall apart within a few days.
