Product Description

The FroliCat BOLT is laser fun for felines and owners. Endlessly entertain even the laziest cat with automatically-generated red laser patterns. Simply hold BOLT in your hand or place it on a flat surface, turn it on and watch your cat pounce, chase, and bat at the exciting laser patterns. Use it in automatic mode where it generates random patters or in manual mode where you can control the action. The laser automatically shuts off after 15 minutes in either mode and also includes a manual on-off switch. Requires 4 AA batteries (not included).

Customer Reviews

You can adjust the mirror that the laser reflects off of, but that's it.
Law Student John
This is a great toy for keeping my cat entertained when I want to get some work done without him bothering me.
The laser just moves too slow and in deterministic patterns so the cats became bored.

FroliCat Bolt Laser Toy / B0021L8W6K

I wasn't too certain about buying this toy for my cats' fifth birthday. I knew that they like to chase lasers, so that wasn't the problem - my concern was that they don't like to STOP chasing lasers. Our last foray into laser pointer territory ended with me letting the laser dot "escape" through an air vent in the wall, thinking that would end the game - no, they just sat vigil under the air vent for five hours. I didn't want a repeat of that.

On the other hand, they are housecats and seem pretty bored and listless, and they definitely need the exercise, so I broke down and bought this... and could not be happier.

The best thing about this laser toy is that if has a mechanical 'servo' sound - a kind of light-pitched soft whirring and turning whenever it is in operation. The sound is soft enough to not really bother a human (although you probably wouldn't want to sit next to it while you watch TV), but it is distinct enough for a cat to hear it in the other room and come running. The practical upshot of this is that your cats figure out really quickly that the magical laser dot ONLY appears when the whirring noise turns on. So if the whirring noise goes off, the laser is gone, and they don't hunt endlessly for it. Indeed, my most active cat has figured out that the laser dot COMES from the whirring thing and will lead me to its spot on the table and demand that I push the button to activate it. Awesome.

I suppose the other best thing about this toy is that it works. It's silly that has to be a product 'plus', but such is the state of the cat toy industry these days, I suppose. But boy, does this thing work!

Many other reviewers have described the FroliCat BOLT, so I won't add my own version of that information. My cat loves the BOLT, and every couple of days he will "ask" me to turn it on by pawing at the shelf I keep it on and meowing. If your cat likes chasing lasers (and is not upset, obsessed, or traumatized by chasing something that s/he can't catch), then the BOLT is probably something you will both enjoy.
One important criticism that I've seen on only one other review: The BOLT does **NOT** produce automatic patterns. Despite the praise I have for this product, it is disturbing to me whenever a company fails to be completely truthful--and in FroliCat's case, their description of the product is vague (to be charitable). Worse, the box that the BOLT comes in is printed with images that are downright misleading--so if you're buying this based on seeing the box somewhere, then be warned.
The description states that the BOLT "automatically generate[s] red laser patterns," and the box shows a laser emanating from the BOLT in a random, zigzag-y path. If you're like me, then "patterns" brought to mind something fairly elaborate, and given that the selling point of the BOLT is its "automatic" mode, I naturally assumed that the image on the box showed how the product operates when in that mode. In TRUTH, the laser travels around in a circle, stopping every 90 degrees or so. As it is aimed upwards at the manually adjustable angled mirror that you can see in the product image, the result is not a crazy, random-seeming zigzag but a regular, predictable ellipse distorted by whatever furniture or walls are in the way.
Now to be completely fair, this predictability isn't a bad thing at all from the perspective of my cat.

My cats love laser light toys in general and seem to like this product. Only time will tell if the movement of this particular laser toy will keep them interested in it for a long time. When it arrived the light worked but it would not move automatically. After a call to the toll free customer service number on the FroliCat box, and help from a representative, it worked just fine. The rep told me that mechanism probably became stuck in one place during shipping. She suggested turning the item upside down and then tapping it against a hard surface. I tried it and it began to work immediately. If you find that you have the same problem then you might try this "technique". But be careful not to tap it hard enough to crack the plastic exterior.

The best kitty toy since string. Frolicat. / Bolt. Rex LOVES it ! Beats the Bada Beam as it does what the BB was meant to. Engage your cat with very little effort on your part. All you have to do is set it down and turn it on and kitty is all over it. At LEAST watching it with some pouncing and chasing antics. Depending on kitty mood swings of course. Sometimes Rex goes totally nuclear if he has been bored. YMMV. I would get a cheep laser first and test out your kitty, if they like that they will love the Bolt. [ Some cats are just not interested.] The Bolt has a 15 minute shut down, how CONVENIENT. It takes 4 AA cells [ Not included.] so it is pretty bright. It even works fairly well in the daytime. But night time with the lights off is the best. It makes a not too loud or annoying whirrring noise that cues the kitty. I turn it on and Rex is RIGHT there. The mirror is adjustable which is a very good feature for beam direction and setting it on different hight tables or the floor. We both recommend the Bolt Frolicat very highly. It is the best 20 bucks I ever spent. TODD & REX

PS. Dogs can love it too but BEWARE some dogs can get totally obsessed over lasers. TO the point it is a health concern. For more on this check some other Amazon pet laser reviews. I think the Bada Beam has more info on this issue. Also dogs are more smell oriented than cats and a lot of them are totally not interested since light is not smelly. Jack [ J.R.T.] will chase ANYTHING though. So again YMMV. I would check em out with a dollar store laser first.

PPS. Speaking of health concerns. Due to the randomness of the kitty and the laser beam. Occasionally they get it in the eye. I do not think this is a instantly blinding thing unless they stare directly into it for quite a while which is very unlikely. Rex has been playing laser tag for years and still seems to see just fine. And hey I have looked at the sun a bit and I can still see. Any more info on this issue please comment.
