A gift for 5 kitties
By Gift from CA on 1/4/2013

While I'm not there to see them 24 x 7, I am told that the kitties LOVE the Flin-ama-String toy -- the male, Buster, just sits and waits for his human to turn it on. Who knows how long it will last or if or when they'll get bored with it, but it was a hit as a gift.

Awesome Cat Toy
By bigbadbunnycuns from CA on 12/25/2013

I became intrigued about this toy watching the on line videos. This product lives up to its expectations and more. My cat absolutely loves it.

By I from OH on 12/21/2012

My cat absolutely LOVES this toy! He cried when I put it away. , He was driving me nuts to turn it back on, so had to hide it., I ordered 2 more for my daughter's cats and my brother's , very overweight, cat. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

Better than Catnip
By Sharon from TX on 1/1/2012

I have purchased many a toy for my cats over the years. Some they played with for awhile, and some they ignored all together. Not this toy though... Both of my cats love to catch the string and hold it down. If I have it off, I will find them sitting next to the toy looking at me , there way of telling me to turn it on, . We have had it a little over a month and they are still playing daily with it. It has held up under some pretty tough pulls from the cats and has banged against the door more than once. I think it is great and well worth the money if your cats love strings.

Brilliant Cat Toy
By Carolyn from VA on 12/25/2012

Cat Toy

Goes too fast for the cat. Not a bad idea, but our cat finds no use for it.

Cat toy
By Gage from TX on 11/20/2012

I admittedly have a very picky cat, but this toy that I thought would interest her was worth about 2 minutes of curiosity and then as soon as she caught it once, she was done. I sent it back, but other less picky cats might love it

Efficacy depends on feline...
By Mia from CA on 7/29/2013

I watched the video before purchasing this expensive product. The Fling-ama-String Cat Toy looked like just the ticket for a Bengal-mix, uber-curious, smart, and restless cat. No dice. LuLu was intrigued for about 5 minutes, then nada, which is par for the course. She still prefers paper bags. Alas...

Enjoyable but not durable
By Sally from TX on 6/17/2012

The string did not make my cat jump like the one pictured, but she did at least watch it rather like people watch TV. It would have been worthwhile to keep her entertained, but after four or five months it has quit working. I may buy another because she does miss it.

fling -a-rama
By Shopper on 1/17/2014

It doesn't 'fling', just drags on the ground. Cat gets bored with it.

By Gail Elliott from BC on 12/29/2012

Arrived in perfect condition and works as it is supposed to, to the pleasure , fascination, of our cat! No problems at all.

Fling-ama-string cat toy
By Lou from TX on 12/28/2012

My cat is interested in this toy where she ignores so called catnip toys.The only improvement might be if it made some type of noise so she would stay active longer.It could be less expensive.

fling-ama-String Cat Toy
By My from CO on 12/17/2013

My cats really like this. At first they just kind a watch the string go around and around. Now they are playing with it. And if they want to play with it they meow at me until I turn it on for them.

fling-ama-string cat toy.
By Vada from TX on 12/10/2013

My cat is afraid of this toy. I keep turning it on hoping she will start playing with it and she just watches it. I think it is way overpriced and I'm sorry I spent the money.

Fling-ama-String Too Fast
By Cray from NJ on 12/17/2013

The product is adequately build, however, there are two speeds to select from and both are too fast. It doesn't give our cat time to play with the string to become interested in catching it. She just sits there and watches the string go up and down, then gets board and walks away.

By lucille from TN on 12/23/2012

Cats loved.

Fun for cats
By Tracy from NM on 11/10/2013

The younger cats love it and will play with it for 20 minutes at a time. Their claws can catch in it, but they don't seem to care. It makes a fair bit of noise but in some ways that is good since it reminds us to turn it off before the batteries run down.

Great entertaining cat toy
By Rob from PA on 1/7/2014

My cat loves this toy. She entertains herself all day withe string fling.

He has to wait for Christmas like everyone else
By Mary from IL on 11/29/2013

I am pretty sure my Banjo will like his gift, but it's too soon to say. I would not have ordered it otherwise! Thanks for asking.

Hysterical fun for the Cat , and us!,
By Steve from MA on 12/23/2012

I'm always skeptical of 'great' items for pets. It seems like the reviews rave and the pet is singularly unimpressed! Well, the 'fling-ama-String Cat Toy' lived up to expectations! Just like in the video, our cat has much fun playing with it. She's still trying to figure it out! And she hasn't gotten bored with it yet. Ingenious item for sure!

kitty delight
By Julie from IA on 12/3/2012

Bought it thinking of being gone and wanting entertainment stations for kitty - but it requires supervision, has to be turned on and off. However, one of our two cats LOOOOVVVEES it. Will come running from other room when she hears it start up. Can't resist. The other cat hasn't come near, but it may be a territorail thing. Kind of expensive but very fun toy.

My cat loves this!
By Donna from NC on 10/6/2012

My cat loves this! He'll sit by it and meow until I turn it on. What an amazing cat toy. It's worth every penny.

Our cat
By Blythe from CA on 3/25/2012

It looked like great fun, but it seems to frighten our cat. He won't have anything to do with it.

Our cat loves it!
By Bobby from WA on 12/30/2012

Our cat who weighs 15 pounds and the product held up nicely

Our Cats Love it!
By Denise from CO on 12/22/2012

Finally something that our three cars are interested in and play with. I like that I can just flip a switch and don't have to do the entertaining myself. The cats playing with this entertains me! It seems to be made well since there's a lot of fierce tugging going on and yet it's still in one piece.

By Shopper from GA on 11/22/2013

It is too loud and frightens my cat. She won't go near it.

Strongly Recommend Fling-ama-String Cat Toy
By Sher from NM on 12/29/2012

My cake 'Pancakes' loves it

Three kitties
By Sam from MI on 11/21/2012

With three cats, one wants to take over, the other two wait until he tires out then they play. Great for about 15 minutes at a time.

Useful Cat Toy
By Linda from PA on 12/30/2012

Well-made toy held cat's interest

By Shopper from TX on 2/1/2013

Thought he would enjoy it and get exercise too. Evidently I have a lazy or very smart cat, he just lays there and catches string when it comes around. No leaping and trying to catch it

By Shopper from PA on 12/31/2012

Fun - my cats like it

By Shopper from FL on 12/29/2012

Bought it for my daughter's 2 Maine coons. They like it, so it's good!

By rosebud from TN on 1/8/2013

My cat was really excited about this toy and loves strings which is why I got it for her. It is a cute idea but the string hangs a lot and the unit stops moving. The toy really goes thru a lot of batteries if you don't watch when this happens. Also, I think my cat is getting a bit tired of it already.

By Sandy from MI on 12/21/2012

Our cat is enjoying it and it is fun to watch her.
