Petstages Green Magic Dynamite Toy
(4 out of 5)
Green Magic Dynamite catnip toy fits well with mellow playtimes.
July 27, 2010 3:23 pm | By Zootoo Editor Emily S.
From the moment I saw the Green Magic Dynamite catnip cat toy, I was charmed. A bright orange canvas cylinder with a piece of cloth for a fuse and the word “Dynamite!” written along its length in blocky yellow capitals, it looks amusingly cartoonish (as though it might have come from Looney Tunes’ Acme warehouse) and – from a pet-owner’s perspective – appealingly sturdy.
Francie, our feline tester, is a fan, too, and when I presented her with a stick of Green Magic, she immediately grasped it between her front paws and began to roll around, kicking the toy with her hind paws and licking it happily. The claim on the package was no lie: Francie was being driven crazy (and I mean that in the best way).
Although Green Magic Dynamite is not a great choice for those times when your cat wants to chase or bat something around (the toy’s weight and cloth covering make this particular dynamite rather inert), it’s a definite favorite when mellower moods strike.
Plus, the packaging includes a little fun-fact, should you or your cat ever find yourself playing Trivial Pursuit: “Dynamite was invented in 1866 by Alfred Nobel, who later instituted Nobel Prizes.” A worthy bit of knowledge for such a great product.
Pros: As promised, the toy will drive your cat crazy with delight.
Cons: Weight of the product makes batting and chasing difficult.

Occasional Explosions with this Catnip Toy
posted 3 years ago
When I first brought this catnip toy home, several cats went nuts over it. One cat ran off with it while it was still attached to its cardboard backing/packaging. The toy had a strange shape for a cat toy--more like a dog bone--but the cats love to grasp it between their paws and rub their faces against it. They also excessively licked it which makes it hard and crusty on the outside, and unappealing to me as a human, but the cats don't seem to mind. Every now and then and cat will get excited over it, so maybe it does have longer lasting catnip in it.
Pros: Catnip has occasional effectiveness when cats want to play
Cons: Turns into a hardened, sticky dyanmite stick from cat licking

Many of my birds have survived thanks to this antibiotic. Why I can't find it in a store is beyond me. This is a miracle tonic that at only 2.99 can save all types of birds. It's almost impossible to … more ›
