A "Toy" by any other name....BE WARNED, this is CRAP!
on May 1, 2012
The next time you think about buying your (or a relative's) cat any type of toy, stop and think about what you define as a toy; because while this giant "Kitty Toy Grab Bag" may seem like a great bargain, it's really mostly crap. I DID NOT receive anything that is shown in the company picture.
Items that I received in my Bag look almost identical to the "Customer Image from Kaitlyn" that is in the pictures section, except I received 23 "toys"; make no mistake, in no way did I get over on this "deal". Please take note of the quotation marks that are around the words "toys" and "deal" and also note that I have a tone of sarcasm over them as well.
Items received in bag:
3 rectangle pillows with blue/yellow feathers
3 triangle pillows
2 stuffed socks
1 furry mouse with leather strip tail
1 furry mouse with multi colored feathers tail
2 pink/green rolling bell cartwheels
1 yellow felt bumblebee with silver cellophane wings
4 foam soccer balls ( 1 pink, 1 green, 1 blue, 1 yellow) that were disintegrating and falling apart out of the bag both at the touch and when I tried to remove the 'MADE IN CHINA' stickers stuck to them.
5 hot pink and white crafting pom pom balls
1 strand of green glittery ribbon (2 inch)
Now I don't know about much about cats, I'm more of a dog person, but I certainly don't hate cats and would never want them hurt; however, what I am pretty certain of is that some cats --like my sister's-- chew and bite their toys, so disintegrating foam balls are not only out, but are very dangerous and pose a CHOKING HAZARD. When I saw the soccer balls in the picture (Kaitlyn's Picture) I thought they were at least made of material. I have seen material (assorted colors) soccer balls as cat toys in the dollar store. I should have bought them there. Stupid me.
Also I wasn't aware that in their spare time cats crafted with crafting pom pom balls. Those crafting pom poms do come in large sizes, I know because I've used the extra-large ones before for crafting projects with my nieces and nephews, these however, are no bigger than a nickel, maybe one of them was the size of a quarter, which still pose a CHOKING HAZARD!
And a strand of green glittery ribbon? I am talking about the type of ribbon (size wise, about 1/4 inch) you attach to birthday balloons or make the really curly looking bows with on presents. Except this piece was about two inches long. I don't know about you, but I find that to be a CHOKING HAZARD! or an INTESTINAL BLOCKAGE HAZARD should the cat swallow it.
This "Grab Bag" (should be Crap Bag)is in no way, shape or form worth the $6.49 they are charging for it, because half of the "toys" aren't even really toys and are going to have to be thrown away because of the choking hazard they pose. The other 13 pillow/mice/bell toys are fine, but I feel really silly paying $6.49 for them, especially when I can pick up similar ones in the dollar store --in four packs-- for a dollar apiece; and next time that is exactly what I am going to do. I am never buying another cat toy on the internet ever again.
Nearly all the toys and "toys" had a `MADE IN CHINA' sticker on them.
I just wanted to warn future customers about this product and for them not to be scammed. I am still astounded at how many people, who consider themselves 'cat people', say how wonderful this product is for their cats, I bought it because it had so many good reviews. I have never been this disappointed or this mislead by Amazon reviews before.
