We anxiously awaited our pEi Kitty Pods to be delivered today, we received them and here is our review.
Not EggZackly(Thank you Newman!) What We Eggspected
Mommy is not impressed with the pods. Many blogs rave about products but you can't tell if they really like the items or are just hoping for more free stuff to review. Maybe Mommy is just too fussy.
First we received the mint green pod from Fab.com. It was very well packaged and double boxed. The trouble with Fab is that you cannot return things so this was a keeper no matter what. But Mommy knew that placing the order.
Then we received the pink pod from Wag.com and it was single boxed with holes thru the box to the item. That box was from the manufacturer and was not a strong box. Should have been double boxed.
The pod is a good solid weight (it has to be placed on the floor so it doesn't fall on somecat) It is big so you have to have a place for it. The egg shape itself is a cute idea but seems like poor quality. You can see the lines where everything is put together and what looks like injection moulding points. Both eggs had a tiny hole on one end. Would look so much nicer to see smooth material. Inside the pink pod there were blackish rings from who knows what. The pink one was packed back up right away without being used and is being returned. Even though Mommy isn't a big pink person anymore, she thought that the pink was a prettier color than the green. Luckily Wag has a great return policy and pays for return shipping.
We have the green pod next to Mommy's desk. While she was typing, I decided to check it out. Went inside and came back out. Walked across the room and came back and went inside and came back out. So far I am not impressed.
This is not a recommend on our shopping list. But Mommy did satisfy her curiousity.
Enzo had a diary title all ready for me if this was a positive review... "eggZACKly" . Good one Enzo! And Newman gave me an updated title of "Not EggZackly". Purrfect, Newman!
i dont know what a kitty pod is? never heard of it
That's too bad -- they look so cute! Thanks for the review!
Nellie, I think 2 diary entries back, I have a link to the main pEi Pod site if you want to see it. If not, you aren't missing anything.
Ashlynne, Mommy wanted to like them so badly. Even if not for everyday, would have been neat for spring/Easter. They always looked so nice in the pictures but sometimes in those modern settings, everything looks good. Also maybe this is why they are on sale in a couple of places.
This is just my review, some othercats might love it.
Ashlynne, Mommy did order me a new Hepper pod in the gray color for my black/gray area of the house. Hopefully I am over chewing them.
Sounds like "Not EggZackly" what you expected! Maybe you can have fun rolling it around! MOL!
PURRFECT Newman!! I added it to my diary title.
And thank you for the Christmas card! We are waiting for the Christmas rosettes to come out to give you one.
So you got some rotten eggs and they weren't eggZackly what they were cracked up to be!
MOL, MOL, MOL!!
OMC!! You kitties are on a roll.
You got that right, Enzo!! MOL!!
oh man bummer dude they sounded so waaaay cool sorry it was not exZactly what you were looking for.
Big congratulations on your diary honor, so you kitties better get back to the shopping list for more cool gift ideals.
Not a big fan of being "inside or under" something (unless it's the human's bed) What a pity the egg pod is a bummer. They look so cool and eggstraordinary in pictures. Further the pity that when life gives you an egg you can't even crack it and make an omelette.
Thanks littleboy and Nuk Anuk!! All your comments are making us laugh over here. MOL!!
Thanks for the review Zack! Mom always thought they looked so cool, but now we know to save our money!
Sorry to hear that it's a bad egg, Zacky, they sure are cute! It probably wouldn't fit me anyway! Thanks for the review!
we toll ya buddy....
Oh, that's too bad! Thanks for the review, we won't be getting one either!
Thanks Monida, Ember, Da Tabbies (I know you warned me!) and Tasha for reading my review.
Mommy moved the egg pod to a different more open location and we continue to ignore it. We go up to it and then just walk away. She even has one of our favorite blankets in it with the cushion. She really thought we would love something like that so maybe we don't like the material, shape or we are allergic to eggs!
