I like the concept of this item, even like it more when you stays on better. On & off switch needs to me modified abit. Horrible I have to get up bout 3times in a minute no kid. 2 turn it back on. The toy on the stick that moves won’t stay in either. Yes, I know it’s interchangeable but won’t even stay in long enough before it turns itself off. I did super glue it in place thou. Besides theses problems cats really like & cry when turns off.
Our cat, Grayson, had the feather and the connection on the top of the twirler destroyed in 5 minutes by chewing through it. The toy still operates, but I can't attach anything to spin. He loved it, but sadly, it was a waste of $20.
the treats come out to easy. Needs to be more of a challenge.
When my cat pounces on it, it doesn't automatically come back up. Which kind of defeats the point of an automatic toy. I had one of these from Marshalls for a year and a half (different brand of course). It didn't have the laser, but made bird sounds as it spun around and automatically came back up after being pounced on. I will probably search for another one of these similar to the one I previously purchased from marshalls.
Was great for a day. Then stopped working the next. Batteries are brand new. Waste of money.
Lucy loved this toy for short periods, but quickly got frustrated that she could not catch the laser "bugs" flying around. She was not interested in the treats. Miss Molly wasn't interested in lasers.
My cat loves this toy. I bring it out after dinner, we have a routine. When he plays with it, he growls, and drags it all over the house! He lets me know when I need to push the button to make it spin again. It usually will hold up for about a year, and for all the fun he has, it is well worth it!
Feather comes off immediately then my cat doesn't care about the ball part. Would be better if the feather had to screw on or off instead
I've had this spin toy for about 5 days and turn it on several times/day. My dog absolutely loves it, my cat....let's just say it's growing on him. It spins pretty fast, so he sits behind something and watches it. He's a little afraid of it, but is getting closer every day...The feather is great and stays put while spinning. The laser is steady, but bc of where it is situated on the ball, it mostly lights up a small circle as the ball turns, so not much more than 2 - 3 " from the actual ball itself. Because my cat is afraid of the ball, he won't go near the laser. When the ball tilts, and the laser's arc is bigger, my cat will chase the light. But, that doesn't last very long...It's well made and has worked consistently so far, would have given it a 5, but it moves too quickly for my cat to interact with, maybe once he stops being scared, he'll use it.
Very poor design hardly any action at all my cats need stimulation and this ain't it. Sometimes it turns of imidietly and when it stays on it barley moves. I think it needs a stronger motor. I bought this to replace a similar toy I had purchased from Chewy that my two cats loved to death.. literally. my boys act as a team to bring down their game and they are very effective. The other toy had plenty of action and they played with it until the batteries died I solved the problem by purchasing rechargable batteries so I could just keep swapping them out. That toy was the one that looked like a Star Wars droid well worth the money. I did have to solder a couple wires back on after the cats slammed it against the wall a few times.
