Frankenstitch Productions NEW Cyclops Cat Toy on a Rope Review & $25 GC! US 1/28


Fankenstitch Productions was created by Steph Bills, a work at home mom, in 2004 and is based in Flint, MI. Steph started sewing in 2002, making Christmas presents with only $60 to her name so she took a trip to her local craft store and bought a ton of fabric and thread. She hasn't looked back since and continues to sew. She started out making a lot of different pouches with appliqué of monstas and all different animals. Once she mastered these pouches she decided to move onto plush creations which she calls monstas. Monstas are what Steph is known for and she has probably made about 6,000+ monstas! Steph also does a really neat thing! You can send her your child's art work and she will re-create it! Now, that takes talent.

 Cyclops Cat Toy on a Rope

We received two of Frankenstitch Production's NEW Cyclops cat toys that are attached to a nice long rope ($5ARV). These Cyclops cat toys are stuffed with premium organic catnip along with a little bit of poly fill.





 

Sunshine (white and tan) and Chippie Cookie (Tortoise Shell) absolutely love their new Cyclops toys! They are about five and a half months old, brother and sister. Sunshine usually growls while playing with any of his toys, whether Chippie Cookie is near him or not. Leaving us searching for our phones and wondering where the vibrating noise is coming from... well, it's just Sunshine growling while playing with his toys. They play with these together as well as alone. I'm not sure where their hiding places are for their toys, but one day our house will be filled with different cat toys, including these and then the next thing you know there is not a single toy to be found! They definitely remember or maybe just stumble upon where ever they have hidden their toys and drag them back out. You can always tell when they have found one of their toys, especially Chippie Cookie as she comes tearing into the living and dinning room playing with it and often walking along on her hind legs as she flips her toy in the air and catches it again.



These Cyclops cat toys on a rope are PERFECT for the kids! With some of their other toys the kids can't really play with them other then tossing the toy and laughing while watching the kittens run and attack the toy. But with these awesome cat toys, the kids just hold onto the end of the rope and run through the house with one or both of the kittens following closely behind them batting at the toy and/or trying to catch it.

It's really cute watching the kids belly laugh as they run through the house playing with the kittens and these awesome new Cyclops toys. I love how they are the perfect toy for both the kittens and the kids, who knew?! Plus, these are filled with catnip and it is the kittens first catnip toys! They have not yet had just plain catnip, honestly, they are crazy enough with out straight cat nip!!

I have loosely tied the rope to the door knob so that the kittens can bat at the toys as well as to the leg of our folding table in the living room. We will hopefully be getting them a cat scratching post/tower soon and I plan on attaching one of these toys to the cat scratching post for some added and independent fun for the kittens.

As mentioned in the introduction of Frankenstitch Productions, they have many different products that are all hand made and awesome! Be sure to check out all of their products in their Etsy Shop!
