First time we offered this to our cat he batted at it a little, and then walked away. It took him a little while to get the hang of it. After a few attempts and leading him to where the treats were in the box the first things he absolutely enjoys it. Usually I'll drop ten or so treats in at a time, he'll have them out and snapped up within fifteen minutes. Sometimes he looks over and complains that he can't find them, but he jump right back into with a little shake of the box.
One small thing to note is to check to make sure the treats aren't getting stuck. It doesn't happen frequently, but I've seen a few treats get wedged there much to our cat's frustration, but its an easy fix. We'll definitely upgrade to the bigger puzzles, It's fun for us watching his brain work out just where to pat it, and how to paw the treats out. I'm sure it would make a good puzzle feeder too for cats that need one.
It was shipped in a plastic mailing bag (by Amazon) so it was a bit bent upon arrival. I did not take off any of my rating stars for this because that was Amazon, not the vendor, but this is become very common, where Amazon ships things like a box of tea in a bag and it arrives smashed, so just know that your cat puzzle may come bent too.
That said, this is well made for what it is, yes. It is as sturdy as cardboard is - until a 16lb Maine Coon or his younger brother land on it from atop their cat tree and then it starts to show some wear. Ok, this is not the vendor's fault either, my cats didn't read the instructions that they were only to insert paws through holes, not kamikaze-fall onto it from 4' above.
Seriously though, it's a cardboard box with holes in so it starts to bend in spots and over more time I'm sure it will take on more damage. The folder cardboard inserts probably help maintain the structure longer though.
As for its usability, my Maine Coons were super curious as I started putting the toy together (it wasn't hard to do) and it didn't take them long to figure out that they needed to get the treats I put inside of it out so that they could eat them. But, it's not easy, at least at first. I suppose that's the point, to keep them entertained trying but my guys have lots to do around our house and didn't feel like this was worth too much time after the initial fascination. I did notice one morning that Floki had turned it upside down which I thought was a good strategy to get the treats to fall out! He's the older of the two (3 years) and now and then I catch him with his paw in there trying for a treat but that doesn't last long. Jax, the 1 year old, is much less interested in this toy and he's the most curious of the two.
Perhaps our Maine Coons are just spoiled and don't think they should have to work for their Rabbit Bite treats :)
We have a number of cat toys around. The one they return to consistently over a long time (Floki started with it as a kitten) is Petstages Cat Tracks Cat Toy - where there are three circular levels and a ball in each and they push it around. I wake in the middle of the night hearing the sound of them playing with it. There are many versions/makes of this popular toy.
They also really like the Catit Circuit Track. We got that a couple years ago and it continues to provide both of these guys with entertainment.
They only toy I leave out all the time is the Cat Tracks. It's small and doesn't get in the way and the boys use it regularly. The other toys, including this cardboard box maze/puzzle, get put away in the closet and I bring one of them out now and then. That way it's something new and interesting instead of them seeing it daily and just ignoring it, which happens. We'll see if that tactic helps with their interest in this box.
If you are looking for another fun option for your cat, this might be it. Or not. Just depends on your cats. I can see that it would be helpful as a slow-feeder if you have a cat that eats too much too quickly. My boys don't but they do like treats. BTW, we buy Vital Essentials Rabbit Bites and these Maine Coons love them. They are one ingredient, rabbit - freeze dried. It's a good thing!

I began looking for some variety in puzzles to keep his brain challenged, so when I saw this Cat Amazing one, I thought I'd try it. The low-environmental impact of the cardboard also appealed to me. It comes in a very cute package that you easily set up with the instructions provided. It's very sturdy and durable, yet light. I've had it for 6 months and it still looks new.
My cat took to this right away. It was easy to assemble and makes him work for his food, and he seems to be using more hunting instincts than with the other toys. He's sniffing, peeking through holes, and using strategy to get the treats out. What has also been great is that I've been able to swap the Temptations for the larger-sized dental food that the vet wants him to have as a therapeutic treat for his teeth. The larger pieces are a bit easier to navigate the inside maze, so he likes that it's not too overly hard.
Since this was a hit with my older cat, I have ordered more and gifted them to two of my friends who have kittens. Big hit. Kept the one kitten occupied for well over an hour during our visit. She would have kept going had we kept adding more treats. If my cat was young again, I might have replaced his daily food dish for an interactive activity like this.
I'd highly recommend this to anyone with a cat. The other puzzle my cat loves is the Trixie Brain Mover (blue/white). Every morning he eagerly waits for me to put his healthy treats in it (shhh - don't tell him they're healthy!). Then every evening, he gets treats in his Cat Amazing puzzle. We have a great routine. My only regret is that I didn't even know these things existed until he was 8-10 years old. Now we're making up for lost time.
It turned out to be a five minute toy. It does not matter what we tried, the cat would get it out in less than a minute. Tried small treats and larger objects (the size of a walnut). At most the cat would take 3 minutes to get things out. After about 15 minutes it lost interest. Not worth the price.
