Pros: neat idea
Cons: messy, donesn't have much catnip scent
I was looking for stuff to put in my cats Christmas stockings last year and found these catnip bubbles at a local Petco.  I thought that they would be a big hit with both my  17 year old cat and my 5 year old cat.  When I opened the bottle of them on Christmas morning, I noticed that they were very messy and the lid didn't want to seal very well once I closed the bottle back up.  They also didn't have much catnip scent to them.  In fact, the solution smells identical to plain bubble solution for kids. 

I blew a couple toward my cats, and they were terrified at them!  All I heard was hissing and growling as the bubbles floated around them.  I tried again a couple days later, but my cats were still scared of the bubbles floating around.  After that, I threw the bottle away.  It was not worth the money I paid for them.
Pros: none
Cons: cats had no interest in it whatsoever
I saw this and thought that the cats and I would have loads of fun with it. I imagined that I'd blow the bubbles and they would chase them and try to catch them. Yeah right. That never happened. First of all, just getting a bubble to form was a chore and I got very few. When I did manage to get a bubble, the cats couldn't have cared less. They love catnip (Lily is playing with a catnip toy as I type this) but this stuff is a joke. Save your money.
Pros: Appealing to owners
Cons: Bubbles don't actually blow half the time. Frightened cats. The soap is very hard to wash off the floor.
I thought that getting Catnip bubbles would be a wonderful idea with three six month old kittens at home. So I went out and got them. I let my three year old little cousin play with them last night and he cried because they wouldn't blow up they just kept popping in his face and getting in his eyes. I tried them again this morning and after finally getting them to blow off right they scared my poor Bailey half to death. When the land on something soft they don't pop. When she went to sniff them they popped in her face, not only making her eyes itch and hurt, and her face every sticky. But scaring her enough to make her run and hide. I'm horribly unimpressed by this product.

Comments

Hi guys I just want to say I never used this exact product so cannot comment on it specifically.
 
I also am very sorry it did not work for you or your babies.
 
Many moons ago I am guessing 10 years or so there was a very good catnip bubble on the market. It even came with a bubble gun so you could shoot tons of bubbles out at once if you liked. My cat Sly LOVED it and with each blow we got 1-5 quality bubbles that she would get with her paw. Not as many as normal bubbles but hey were low soap catnippy bubbles so the mix was different. The bubbles held their shape till my kitty popped them. 
 
We did them on the patio so I never worried about clean up. It is a great idea for a product this brand just hasn't got it right.
 
First, I spent years as a group home foster parent, and have been a children's counselor. I was certified in Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, using horses with children, families and adults. I also used my dog, shown here, Smoky, and even some orphan kitties eyes still closed from the veterinarian. The babies, two of them were carried in a soft sided  case with heating pad, plugged in when arriving, going into homes to help the children and the children helped to clean and feed them, AND 3 years old is very young for kitten play, and the kittens are way too young to be responding to any catnip product. Catnip is something for older cats.Six months is very young to try to introduce a novelty product, handled by a toddler, who cannot really be expected to understand either the correct use of the product, or the kitten psychology. I would expect all of them to be scared. A better toy, SUPERVISED, would be a feathered cat teaser, used very slowly, not flashing about like a whip, which will also wind up just terrifying the kitties.  If the child was terrified, keep him away from the kitties for a couple days, and reintroduce very supervised, not allowing the child to do anything on their own. Help them feed the kittens, so the kittens will get over their fear. Show child how to move slowly, how to be relaxed and not jump up and down. Puppies respond differently than kitties, so if you do not want all the kittens running and staying hidden under the beds, or in the closets, try another approach. Best to you and yours. Children and animals are teachers of God, and when we make sure to supervise with wisdom they will surprise and amaze us. I had dear Billy Blacktail, a white long haired cat with some black. He was so sweet, that when I wasn't looking and a toddler would pick him up, with his hind legs over their arms,which were wrapped around his belly, tightly,and his front legs hanging down , his little head past their knees, he would just hang there, and be packed around by the child, never fighting or scratching to escape. i would, of course, gently disengage the child, and teach them the correct way to handle the cat, but that old Billy Blacktail was the soul of tolerance and wisdom with children. He never scratched a child, and raised my puppy, Smoky, tolerating all of the puppy's mauling and licking, so that dog grew up adoring cats, thanks to the kindness of Billy Blacktail.
