My kittens loved it but! It is too expensive to maintain. Just like most of the reviews I also thought that maybe the batteries were low, maybe they had it on display and was used a lot so I replace the batteries and da da! They lasted for 2 sessions...
It would have been a great product as when in full energy the fish is seen throughout the day (else you can play in the evening or in a dark room) if it was rechargeable with a USB. It is great toy but expensive in the long run.
Great while the batteries last
My kitten loves this, but the batteries only last 10 minutes, so very expensive to run. Shame as great otherwise.
Ok, but the "laser mouse" is much better
This toy projects a fish on the floor, the main issue with it is that it's not that visible if it's bright in the room. Due to the way the projection works it also expands the further away you shine it meaning it becomes quite indistinct which can lose the pets interest. It's well worth spending the pound or 2 more for the mouse which projects just the red dot as it's much brighter, and can be used over much longer distances!
The fish shape is fun but only really works well in low light, the cats will have nothing to do with this at all they sit and watch the fishy shape run across the floor and then look at me as if to say and what do you want us to do with that :o(
not strong enough
It is a funny shape, but can't really see it in normal day light. Laser pens much better
of 5 cats 1 is obsessed
this particular laser toy was a free gift with a previous Zooplus purchase. I have kept it for some time now and for one of my five cats it is his absolute idea of serious playtime fun. I have had to replace the batteries poss every 3 weeks which seems excessive given it only works in the dark and used for a couple of quick 2 minute sessions each evening. The batteries are not cheap compared to the cost of the toy so that is the downside. i think that at the current selling price which includes the batteries its worth a punt but then throw away as thereafter it becomes uneconmical to keep.
okay but not the best.
I bought this laser as it was cheaper than the pointer I have purchased before. I was slightly unhappy as the fish shape gets very large and feint when shining into a distance of a few meters. My cats much prefer the traditional red pointer,in the "trixie" model sold by zooplus.
