I LOVE this toy! I like to use it when trying to enjoy a meal (or do anything that required no kitty interruptions). Works great for that.

HOWEVER my boy cat Nigel learned how to turn it on. He did not learn to turn it off, nor does he care. ;-) Because of this I can't leave it sitting out which really makes a difference in its usage.

I think it is cool that he can turn it on but I would love if the auto timer feature was part of the main on/off button.

Press once to turn on and activate set timer. Twice for longer set time. Three for longest set time. Four for indefinite time. Five for off. (Or really an indefinite time isn't needed. Maybe just an extra long set time.)

Regardless of my issue, I still recommend it to friends.

Oh, it also could use a brighter laser light.

Decided to purchase a Dart as my 13 y/o feline is developing a rather sedimentary life. Because of this he has become too fat! With his Dart he is certainly getting some needed exercise! He loves this thing so much that he has been waking me up around 3 am wanting me to turn his laser toy on. He will even sleep next to it! I've noticed he is dropping some weight now so thank you Pet Safe for making this great product. Now, if it would come with a remote I could get some more sleep. Thank You!

I was sent a replacement laser toy when the one I received as a gift suddenly stopped working. The new toy is working but the timer does not work. It rotates and the lasers work but when set at the 5 minute time it just keeps on going and going and going.

Fifteen minutes later when my cat got tired of playing it was still rotating and shooting red lasers around the rug. I had to physically turn it off to stop it.

I guess it is just a design problem with items manufactured outside of the USA. They never seem to function as they were designed.


​PETSAFE RESPONSE:

We're sorry to hear about the issue your Dart is having with its timer settings, Ruth! Be sure that, when setting the timer setting, that the light flashes a few times after you have set it to let you know that it has been set correctly. If it just shows a solid light, that is the speed setting rather than the timer setting, which can be confusing at times. If it continues to have this issue, please give us a call at the number 1-866-738-4379 and we would be more than happy to assist you in getting it working correctly.

We've had this toy for our 3 males cats who liked it but got worn out quickly. Then we got our 2 females and everything changed. They are addicted to this toy! Both the girls sit next to the toy and look at us and/or meow incessantly. We usually set it up before we go upstairs for the night to keep some happy (and worn out) kitties. The males are even starting to get involved in the fun!

My only change would be to make the bottom piece weighted. One of the cats has a tendency to run in circles, each loop getting closer to the unit, until she knocks it down. She weighs 4 pounds as an adult so it seems crazy that such a little thing can knock the unit on its side.

This was the best "toy" we ever bought for our cats! I'll admit some didn't find it interesting, but boy oh boy, the ones that did adored it and looked forward to 8 pm every night when I would turn it on for them for 20 minutes.
We have had no trouble at all and have owned it now over a year; highly recommend, but keep in mind -- animals are all different and some will love it and some won't, and that doesn't mean the item has anything wrong with it. When ours eventually does break down, I'll be buying another. Great item (just be sure it is dark outside and you turn down the lights -- more fun that way!)

I bought this item for my six year old dog and sat in the room with himbut he just wouldn't play with it. The laser was way too fast, even on the lowest setting. I'm not even sure if he could see the light.

I think it would be more successful for cats or young puppies.

What a GREAT interactive toy. We initially purchased the toy for our kitty and she stalked it for a while, but it was our puppy that truly loved to chase the laser daily while I woke up to a cup of coffee. Had to change the batteries often due to the daily use but it was so worth it! Every morning he would run to the closet where we kept the toy in anticipation of laser time!!

I purchased one of these products from Walmart recently, and unfortunately two of my three cats quickly learned instead of chasing the laser to simply place their paws on the toy at the lasers emission source , causing it to make a grating sound as gears grind against each other and the machine usually either tips over or continues the gear grinding until I stop them from pawing it.

I also found the batteries don't last very long, even brand new name brand alkaline batteries only last for a few short hours before needing to be replaced. (A rechargeable built in battery would have been far more efficient.)

This is a cute and fun toy for cats AND dogs. It is lightweight, so won't hurt your animal if in their exhubrance they tip it over. Yet it is sturdy enough that I can't see the animal breaking the toy either - unless you don't follow directions to place it on the floor and it falls off of a table or something. The red dot is bright. The toy lets you set the timer so you don't have to worry about forgetting it it on. It is not silent, but is not nearly as noisy as other toys I have tried for my cats. My sister's dog had a great time chasing the dot. The toy moves the dot at four different speeds - you can select the one your animal likes. It makes the dot jump, and circle, go backwards, pause, all at random. I've had ours for over a year. Still working just fine - not on the same battery set, but that is to be expected.

We were super excited to get this in the mail today via Amazon. Now we're totally disappointed. Turned it on and the laser only lasted for 2 minutes although it would still rotate. Will be returning it tomorrow.
