play time #sponsored

**as part of the Blogger Influence Group, we get a free product once a month to review for but that does not influence our opinions. The product review is our honest opinions. is not responsible for the content of this review.

This month we got the Kong Triangle Play Mat to try out. Mom didn't read the dimensions before she emailed that we wanted to try it. On the website it says 14.5" by 12". We gotta say - its small. In fact, even the nuts (who weigh about 3 pounds each) barely fit in there.

That being said, any toy with something dangling from it is a hit around here. And since the sides are pretty tough, it stays upright and we haven't banged it over yet. However, with the other toys around here (especially our crinkly tunnel), even the little kittens lost interest faster than mom expected.

The really nice part is that it is held together with velcro and folds flat. Mom is going to fold it up and then break it out again when the newest group is a little more active and ready to play. They should be just the right size.
Nashville checks out the toy

Daiquiri attempts to see if she fits inside 
(for the record, she doesn't)

Almond does fit (sorta) and gives the toy a good whapping

Overall score - meh. The adults lost interest quickly once they discovered they won't fit inside (if you are going to have a good hiding spot, inside is best). Nashville and the nuts find the toy pretty interesting, but otherwise don't seem too interested either.

On a side note, the mat came out Sunday afternoon. Monday night mom heard a thump in the hall. She checked and found the mat halfway down the hall....and the mouse removed from his string. Not a cat in sight. Oh well.....


  1. That's a cute mat...but definitely kitten size.

  2. That is funny about the Mat moving. Sounds like something that would happen around this house. It does look a little small. Oh well, the little kittens will enjoy it. Great review. Have a good day.

  3. That looked like a tight fit. And I don't think that dangly bit would have lasted more than a few hours in our house.

  4. Wow, that REALLY is kitten sized! I'm 7 lbs. and I wouldn't fit in there.

  5. That mat looks like a lot of fun... for kittens ! Purrs

  6. That isn't even kit-cat sized, let alone Sibe sized!!!

  7. The size was so disappointing. Our mouse has been separated from its string too. Pierrot loves the mouse, but now that it is not attached to the play mat, he's not interested in the mat, just the mouse.

    I was happy to see a kitten in it!

  8. That does look like fun for kittens, but not as much for the adult kitties.

  9. We wanted to test this, but Mom waited seven minutes after she got the e-mail to reply so we didn't get one. After seeing how small it is here and on other blogs, we are happy to have gotten yummy treats instead. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  10. I want one!
    have a super weekend...

  11. that looks pretty good for kittens though!

  12. That looks good for kittens, for sure. Moosey, Gracie and Zoe would be much too big for it, though. :)

  13. ours held attention for a couple of days, but once the mouse was chewed off, it was over


We love to hear from you.....
