I love this toy, however, since they changed the attachment to a clasp, the toy cannot spin freely anymore which causes it to get tangled up now and you end up spending more time untangling it than playing.
My cat goes nuts for the feather attachment that came with this toy and we love the extended length. Unfortunately the string is not elastic so it gets hopelessly curled and tangled on itself making is so you have to untangle it every couple of minutes.
He loves this toy so much, it completely focuses him, draws him in and wears him out. We really do bond over this one and it's very often hilarious. Really brings his innate hunting skills to the fore and gives him a thorough body work out. Insanely good value!
My two orientals have stopped going out because it’s too cold to explore. And have been going stir crazy. We got the leather tassle toys as those are our favourite but added this as the extra length seemed good. Well, what an amazing toy. Comes with two spare replacement feather attachments. The pole is long and bouncy and the feathers spin as you wave the want about. The cats went crazy as soon as we started playing with it. They are back to being active and are quite addicted to their new toy.
I love this toy so much that iv bought multiple for my own, my mum's, my sisters and my friends cats. They all go insane for these toys old and young. For the kittens especially I love that I can detach them to throw without risk of getting choked/tangled in the string when your oute all on the interchangeable clip which other zooplus toys go on so you can change the toy and stick super easy. I find all the cats love the big feather one and shred them but you can then just change the end toy.
OMG I did not expect my cats reaction when I got this.
So it's a long pole broken into two parts that you for together with three attachments. My cat was jumping like crazy for this! To the point he started growling at us and taking the whole thing away with him!!
In a round of tug if war the string did break off the stick so be careful. I've hot glued it together so it's good to go again!
Well worth the £2 I spent on this even if it breaks in the near future XD
We got this to help with 'play time' for one of our kitties who often wakes us up in the wee hours, play time helps to tire him out so we get a full nights sleep.
this toy is excellent, he loves it, jumping in the air to catch it, chasing it along the floor. Job done.
Added bonus, our blind cat also plays with it as he can hear it dragging along the floor. So sweet.
The toy itself seems to be well made, the different attachments are easy to interchange. Time will tell how it holds up.
My Leo is currently recovering from 2 broken toes and has to stay indoors. In 3 weeks we bought dozens of toys to try keep him occupied and they all didn't interest him for more than 5 mins. Except this one!! Typical that we find it when he's not got long in his cast left but he likes birds and this looks and acts like a bird in flight! We've been playing with it every time he's awake since it arrived and he absolutely loves it! (PS the non feathered attachment looks like his sister's tail!)
It's rare for both my girls to participate in play at the same time as they like to watch each other but with this they can't resist going at it together! They aren't always keen on pole toys but this is a huge hit. I've so far only tried the feathers that were already attached and after a few long sessions of play I'm stunned it's still in tact. We have lost a bit of one feather but with two cats flying through the air, jumping, catching, wrestling and chewing it that's pretty good going in my book. Because the pole and string are so long, you can get away with swinging it around whilst sitting comfortably in your chair which a huge bonus for me as I'm disabled. A very good purchase.
Feathers came right off after one minute of playtime. I just attached a leathery mouse by the tail with a strong knot and it's held fine for months now. However, I did need to tape the two pole pieces together as it would come off everytime my cats played rough.
This is a real chaser, looks like a bird, 6 cats go crazy chasing it, flying off chairs, tables, the floor, ,Sometimes they catch it and I have to take it away from them, then start all over again. I have bought a spare because of the price and the quality is good too. Do buy one for your cat, you won't regret it. Thanks Zooplus for keeping your prices low for us.
Ollie loves this toy -- we keep it tucked away as a 'special occasions' toy, and when we get it out he meows for it and tries to play with it instantly. He LOVES the way it floats around in the air; the only downside is that there doesn't seem to be any replacement attachments available anywhere so once the ones provided are gone it requires buying a whole new toy.
This is the best toy I have ever bought, all of my cats went mad for it, even my very senior cat got up! (A rare sight). I will definitely be buying a few more :) If you are only going to buy one thing for your cat, get this, they will love you for it :)
We got this dangler for our new kitten. IT'S WAY BIGGER THAN EXPECTED. We know it says 'xxl' in the title but they really weren't kidding - however, it comes in two parts that slot together and we are not sure it will stay 'together'. After testing it out a bit (without kitty) it looks as though it will hold. Something that would instill confidence in its abilty to stay as one woud be nice. Like if the peices screwed together instead? The feather toys you can change are great and seem of good quality. Also very pretty looking - overall a good buy and a good price.
This is by far the best dangler toy I've found for my cats. It has a unique attachment that spins as you wave it about, creating a very realistic action that not only entertains my kitten but has had my older, very lazy cat running about chasing it. I'm purchasing another as a spare.
