kathy ireland® Loved Ones Review and Giveaway

We were contacted about reviewing the kathy ireland® Loved Ones new line of cat toys.  Of course we said yes because we always like toys and we were interested in the kathy ireland® toys because they were advertised to be fashionable and fun.

We all know how cats love to play, but did you know that play provides an outlet for our natural instincts?  Play also encourages exercise which contributes to our overall well-being, both physically and mentally.  The kathy ireland® Loved Ones toys are designed to meet the needs of pets while encouraging active play.
Brulee says, "not so fast, Truffle.  This toy matches my green eyes."

The unique thing about these fashionable cat toys that makes them different from other cat toys on the market is that they are also designed to meet child safety standard to ensure they're safe for both fur and human children.   We were sent several kathy ireland® Loved Ones toys to review.


Stretch and Chase Catnip Mouse Launcher Cat Toy:  

This toy is filled with pesticide-free catnip. There is a durable stretch-and-launch ring that sends it flying so we can leap to grab it in mid flight. Can you believe that with the help of your human that this toy can be launched up to 40 feet?  Mom Paula puts the rubber ring in her thumb and launches it down the hallway.

Ribbon Wand Cat Toy:  

There are four different ribbon want cat toys available in the Loved Ones cat products:  the catnip sachet ribbon, the flower feather bloom, the heart feather bloom, and the ribbon.  We received the Flower Feather Bloom and immediate began playing with it when Mom Paula pulled it out the box.  The ribbons and flowers allow for two-fold play and are attached to a durable wooden handle that enables us to interact with Mom Paula.

Fish Wobble Catnip Cat Toy:  

The Wobble Catnip Cat Toy is available in two styles:  bird and fish.  We received the blue fist to try out.  The pesticide-free catnip fish has a wonderful feather on top and is mounted on a weighted base that tips and wobbles when we touch it which creates erratic movements that stimulate our interest.

Every kitty loves a kick toy and the Catnip Kick Candy Cat Toy is no different.  It's the purrfect size to bunny kick and pounce on.  Feathers and ribbons are attached to the kick toy to bring out our hunting instincts and pesticide-free catnip is inside.

These are beautifully made and I donated the ones I got last year to the shelter which I'd do again if I win.

That's a really wonderful collection of toys! If we win, we're going to gift them to a local friend who has her first cat of her own, so the kitty doesn't have many quality toys yet. This is a fabulous starter set.

Flynn said...

Those toys look lovely!

The rafflecopter widget isn't letting us input anything for our email address or blog address. This might just be our browser being fussy this morning, but we thought we'd let you know in case it was a problem for others, too.

Whoa! On one paw I wonder why No one contacts ME for reviews such as this. On the other paw, I don’t think I’d play with any of these toys. MOL! I’m glad they were a hit at your house.

The rafflecopter is still being a pain and not allowing entries. My cats love anything with feathers and ribbons so the kick candy toy is purrfect!

Susan P. said...

My cats love catching and playing with lizards so that is their idea of favorite toy but their favorite inanimate object toy is anything with feathers.

Cleopawtra said...

Love these toys. They're so pretty. My boys would like the launching catnip toys. If it can be tossed they love it. Thanks for the giveaway.

Kayley said...

I like wands like the ribbon wands because they better enable you to interact with the cat.

Amy Orvin said...

My cats love their catnip mouse and ball.

Shelley P said...

Such a great variety of toys! My cat's favorite toys are the wands but she loves catnip toys too :)

Emily Smith said...

My cat loves catnip balls that have ribbon or string dangling on the side. She loves how it flails around when she bats the ball around.

D Johnson said...

My cat loves her mouse filled catnip toy.

Grace said...

I think my kitties might just love them all but maybe the ribbon wand or the wobble catnip toy...
