my kitten loves crinkles but loses them often so I got him these. he enjoyed them for a couple days but they're too light to be thrown more than a couple feet, start ripping almost immediately, and can't get wet. Found one in the water bowl and decided to throw them all out. I was still finding small scraps of them around my apartment for weeks after I tossed them because of how easily they ripped
I put this in a small Christmas gift bag by itself, (still in the see-through packaging) under the tree- she knows its in the bag and gets the package out every night, when I'm in bed- keeps her from playing with the tree ornaments. Lol. Shell be in 7th heaven on Christmas day when i open the package so she can really play with the crinkle balls. Its a GREAT toy!!
Value priced right. Not as big as some we have purchased. Fur babies still play with them!
My 10-week-old kitten went crazy when I introduced these little crinkle balls to her. She likes these better than 95% of her other toys. She played with one at a time for at least 20 minutes before moving on. Every day, I pull one out for her and she goes crazy for it as if it was the first ti me she ever saw it. I'm thinking about Christmas bows in December will be a real hit! I recommend the larger 12 pack because cats/kitties will go through them fast.
I have rarely seen our 14 yr old cat play this long at a time! These crinkly balls are a lot of fun. They are light weight and when I accidentally throw the ball onto my cat's face, she really does not care, at least she won't get hurt. I have seen questions about them loosing color or being toxic when ingested. I do put the balls away when we are done playing with them though as I trust no toy that CAN be rip apart and eaten. The balls have not lost color yet and in that case I would throw them out. Of course, a paper ball is almost just as fun but it does not have all the positives I mentioned :) So, yes, the fun our cat has with these balls though is unbelievable and leads to many laughs. She also gets GREAT EXERCISE that she needs as she is overweight. Feeding less does not work as good as exercise, I think that's the same for all of us as well ;)
Our two kitties love batting around these foil like things! Not sure if it is the bright colors or the sounds they make but they are a hit. They carry them around too. Unfortunately our Great Dane really likes them too.
Its a very cute toy. Sadly my cats like to be bad boys, they tore the tinsel toy to tiny tidbits. Don't leave your babies unsupervised. Even with me there they tried to devour the crunchy morsels. Definitely a cute little toy, but sadly my babies eat everything.
Crinkle balls are some of my cats' favorite toys, but these don't quite hit the mark, as what we got seems kind of 'stretched-out' - not as tightly crinkled as other brands we've bought in the past. These are light enough and interesting enough to still get *some*play, but I can tell my cats aren't too impressed. I won't buy this brand again.
I would not recommend this item if your kitty likes you to throw them across the room for them to chase. I have been buying heavier ones for my kitty for years and she loves them! Not these ~ they are too light to throw. Cheap!
Like many toys, these balls appeal to one cat and not the other. But Scooter will bat these around, carry them in his mouth and play with them much longer than other toys. He is nearly 10 years old, so age is no deterrent.
