There are some cat toys that remain favorites no matter what, and this is one of them. It’s the Tickle Tassel Ball from Tipsy Nip and it’s so simple, it’s brilliant. It’s part of Tipsy Nip’s Feline Precision Vision™ line of toys. These toys use purple, blue, green and yellow — the colors that cats can actually differentiate between. The Tickle Tassel balls are simple wooden spheres that are drilled though with organic hemp tassels tied in place. The ball rolls perfectly on hard floors or carpet and the little tassels are perfect for grabbing and carrying the balls around.
Because they roll so well, the Tickle Tassel Balls can roll under furniture and appliances, which is why we forget about them sometimes, but each and every time I pull one out, everyone flips out because they are so excited to see their favorite toy. I just dug some out from the bottom of the toy bin, which is what reminded me how great they are. Sylvia (above) can’t get enough of these things.
The Tickle Tassel Balls are available directly from the Tipsy Nip website, $4 each of three for $10.
