Not many toys excite my boy but BOY did this toy. He has claimed it as his. Lays on top of the leaf all the time. Gets his kicks on with this crinkle toy. Plays with the bugs too but the leaf is it for him. I am going to buy another or two as a backup when this one is ripped to shreds. My one year old female plays with it also. Expensive but was more than worth it.
My cats are notorious for playing with a toy when they first get it, and then completely shutting it out of their lives. This is the one toy that has been the exception. They each go over to it at least one a day and play with it. Cannot give a higher recommendation based on that!
Cat really liked this toy but when I cut off the the plastic tags that held the toys in place, my cat started in on the wings of the dragonfly. The wings are soft, the toys are small, he started to chew on them - worried he might swallow and choke on them. If the toys were a bit bigger, and not so soft it would be a great toy for my cat. Otherwise felt it was safer to take it away from him.
My cat has zero interest in trying to pull the toys off the velcro side of the leaf. Sometimes I can get him to chase the caterpiller, but nothing else. I hide treats under the insects to try to get him interested and so far he still doesn't care. I've had the toy 2 - 3 weeks now. I definitely like it more than he does.
Arrived dirty. Was just thrown in the box with other items and wasn't separately wrapped. My cat would love this toy if I felt safe giving it to him.
I didn’t know what to expect with this toy…but after buying one, my cats were FIGHTING for their turn with it! It’s very crinkly and the bugs were easy to restick to the leaf. After a few months, I had to replace it only because my cat chewed on some of the critters so much that they were deformed and lost some of their original charm. This item is definitely a cat-pleaser that will keep your kitty entertained, and for such a reasonable price why not give it a chance?
I added this because I needed a few more bucks to get free shipping and it had great reviews. I honestly thought it seemed a little stupid...toys velcro'd onto felt. But I went with it, and I'm glad I did. They haven't stopped playing with it since it arrived. I'm sure the catnip has a lot to do with that, but also the crinkle noise the leaf makes. I have a 4 yr old and a 14 yr old. They both play with it, get the insects off and bat them around the house. The 17 lb 14 yr old sleeps on top of it. I hear the crinkle sound all throughout the night. It's a win.
I was not real sure about ordering this as my cat is not a real catnip fan, but she surprised me. She is small and around 8 lbs, but she pulls the stuffed animals off the leaf and tosses them in the air as well as rolls around on the leaf. She really seems to like it.
Our kitten loves the new toy! He likes to remove the pieces and rushes to me when I put them back on, lol.
I added this to my order to hit the shipping minimum on another purchase and i’m so glad I did. My cats immediately went for it even though a pack of silvervine, their favorite, was on top of it. They love batting the little critters around and bunny kicking them. They also love trying to pull them off of the little leaf, especially flipping it over. We’ve had so many laughs and cute moments in just a few hours of getting it out of the box.
