What the hype?! — Kong Kickeroo

The Kong Kickeroo. Have you heard of it? When I decided to get a cat, I googled and asked for recommendations, and this turned out to be very popular, so I figured I’d give it a shot. I bought this for Fin on World Animal’s Day 2015, so he’s had plenty of time to test it out. What’s the verdict?


Drumroll please… This turned out to be a definite flop. For Fin, that is. He’s not much of a kicker, and he didn’t react to the catnip in the kicker at all. If he’s extremely hyper or playful, he’ll play with it, but it’s not like he specifically chooses it to play with otherwise. I’ll keep it around, maybe sprinkle it with some NipNap’s catnip (First Impression Review coming soon!) in a while and see if that helps a little. I don’t regret buying it, I’m still going through the process of figuring out what Fin likes best, and it’s not like this was expensive.

If you want to try the Kong Kickeroo for yourself, you can go buy it here for €3,99. If you have a smaller kitty, there’s a kitten version available. I’d love to hear what you think 🙂


I’ve decided to start a new series on the blog! What the hype?! will include small reviews about items that I’ve heard a lot about, or have seen a lot on social media, such as this one. Will they live up to the hype, or disappoint? That’s the question. Maybe I’ll start another new series about toys that have flopped, and how I made them more interesting, if I can!

      I’ve tried to move the kicker in all sorts of ways, but I just cannot get him interested in this one! Do you have any tips on how to make it interesting for him?
