Multipet Ba-Da-Beam Rotating Laser Cat Toy
2 Star Review   By Soul on PETCO - Feb 22, 2011   

My cat got bored with this in one week. It only goes in the same direction at different lengths. He likes it better when I control the directions.

Good to occupy cats time
2 Star Review   By woodyb42 on PETCO - Aug 3, 2010   

So far this has been less than what I expected. It does seem to keep the cats attention to some point, but really doesn't get them chasing it as it moves way to fast. I also made the assumption it would work in a 360 degree manner ... which it does not. As other posts stated, the pattern isn't that random so my cats get bored with it after a couple minutes. But the nice thing is I can walk by and turn it on and know they will get a little excersise or at least get there heart beating thinking about excersising.

okay
3 Star Review   By sassydem on PETCO - Jul 19, 2010   

I thought the light would move in more directions. My kitties figured it out pretty quick that it was the same thing over and over.

Broke first day
1 Star Review   By kokc on PETCO - Feb 6, 2010   

Don't buy it - all the negatives I read about (and ignored) are true - plus it broke the first day. I'm returning it.

Cats Love this
4 Star Review   By FirstTimeCatOwners on PETCO - Oct 30, 2009   

I give this 4 stars because our two kittens (7 months and 9 months old) love chasing this and the fact that it automatically turns itself off after 10 minutes so you can leave it and not worry about it. However, that is about all the time they enjoy it is the 10 minutes since it makes the same pattern over and over. But it was definitely worth the money and they enjoy it every time.

Too predictable
3 Star Review   By lindseyloveslily on PETCO - Jun 10, 2009   

My cat would prefer something more random, going in a circle is too predictable and therefore, to easy. Having an on/off switch makes it easier to hold (the ones with tiny buttons inevitably make my fingers tired), but I still need to hold it and move it around.

Ok, but not great
3 Star Review   By alfieh8sophie on PETCO - Apr 10, 2009   

I purchased this so I wouldn't have to sit around with the laser pointer all day. Problem is the light is too fast and not random enough. My cats will chase for a minute or two, then give up. The hand held laser pointer still is their favorite.

Slow it down!
1 Star Review   By CatOwned on PETCO - Mar 22, 2009   

I was expecting the laser to move much, much slower so my cats could actually be able to chase it. Instead they both get dizzy and frustrated. This would be a marvellous toy if the speed were slowed to 1/10th of what it is now. I wish I had the electronic know-how to take it apart and slow down the speed myself!

No way ...
1 Star Review   By sharbear on PETCO - Mar 31, 2008   

Drove my cat crazy and NOT in a good way. The laser pointer was too fast and had very limited range. A manual laser pointer is much better. A shame - I really wanted sometime for him to play with when I wasn't around.

Not as good as a laser pen
1 Star Review   By nveerav on PETCO - Mar 30, 2008   

I bought this toy for my kitty because she absolutely LOVES chasing the laser whenever I get my laser pen out and turn it on. Unfortunately, this toy just rotates in one circle, without the variation that I use with my laser pen. My kitty showed no interest in chasing the rotating laser this toy produced and eventually attacked the actual toy because she was so annoyed with how boring it was.

5 Star Review   By brenda55 on PETCO - Mar 30, 2008   

I bought this for my black lab and she loved it. Unfortunately, she got a hold of it and you know the rest of the story. I am buying two and plan to suspend from the ceiling to see if it will last longer

cats love it
5 Star Review   By Candace on PETCO - Jan 18, 2008   

My cats love it, I got it as a gift from the neighbor. they know everytime they ear it turn on that it's time to play. I can set it on the computer desk and they'll run around the floor chasing the light freeing up my time. also the kids love to play with it, they move it around so the cats dont get bored with it being in the same place all the time. i think it's great. i've had it for over a year now and havent had to replace the batteries or anything. it's great.

F-
1 Star Review   By dacosta on PETCO - Sep 5, 2007   

My cat was not interested in this toy at all which happens but this thing was really not built very well. A laser light would be more entertaining (and CHEAPER) than just one that goes around in a very small circle. It has no variation at all. I would not buy again or recommend this toy.

Waste of Money
1 Star Review   By JB007 on PETCO - Jan 9, 2007   

I bought this product for my 3 cats. I had to make sure that the laser was far enough away to get a bigger circle from it, otherwise the laser circle was so small it wasn't a challenge for them. Not to mention that with such a small circle one of the cats just sat there and followed it with his head, (Have you ever seen a cat DIZZY?!?) and eventually fell down dizzy. The only way I can get it to work with my other cats is if I set the toy up about 50 feet away from the wall so the circle is much bigger. This was a big disappointment.

ba-da-beam rotating cat toy
2 Star Review   By mollysmama on PETCO - Dec 12, 2006   

I bought this at a different store. It was too fast for my cats and they lost interest. I then held it in my hand to slow it down. Then my cats played with it. I wish it had a switch on it for slow to fast. I think a dog would like this better than a cat.

Too Fas
1 Star Review   By Tommy1 on PETCO - Nov 27, 2006   

I have 3 cats and they liked it for the first 30 seconds and then realized it goes to fast, and they lost interest. The mirror started to fall out after about week.

Great toy if your pet is the size of a mouse.
1 Star Review   By Terrierlover on PETCO - Oct 16, 2006   

My dog loves lasers and I am away at school so I dont get to play with him much during the day, so I wanted to have some type of entertainment for him. He looked at the laser dot for a minute but then lost interest. I returned the product to the store within 2 hours of purchase. The toy moves the laser too fast and in too small of an area. The laser pointers you get at the dollar store for $1 are a much greater value.

From old to young
4 Star Review   PETCO   

My ten year old cat loves this toy to death. It's been years since I have seen her run around the way she does with this lazer toy. The only problwm I had with this toy is the mirror kept falling down, but I just glued it and it is perfect!

Laser Cat Toy
2 Star Review   PETCO   

The light only moves in circles and only at one speed. It took my cat a little while to adjust to the constant motion and speed. I would much rather recommend a laser pointer that you can move around on your own. Its much more fun for the cat and much more entertaining for yourself.

I hope mk 2 is better
5 Star Review   PETCO   

A built in clock/timer would be desireable, to activate the toy at set times. i.e. when you're not around to turn the thing on? Also, would it be possible to have a larger capacity of battery power designed for longer periods. To be environmentally conscious Rechargeables could be recommended, or have the unit designed with a recharger & rechargeable battery. To do away with the wastefulness of buying ordinary toxic batteries. Perhaps a fully rotating reflector to cover a larger area. My cat does get bored if I only play a laser toy in only one area. He likes to chase it accross the room half of the time. * I know when he's bored and just catching his breath. It would be ideal, if I could programe or set it to function while I'm at work or out doing errands, I wouldn't have to worry about my little baby getting bored and tearing up Less Expendable objects, like my PC tower, favorite chair, or chewing on power cords.

Love it, but an upgrade would be fantastic!
4 Star Review   PETCO   

This toy is great at entertaining a laser loving cat. However, it doesn't provide as much exercise as it would if the laser was a little slower and moved around the room more. I'm happy with it because it entertains my cat, and I'm hoping there will be an upgraded version someday.

Great
5 Star Review   PETCO   

I have 3 cats, and 2 of them love this toy. The other has never been intrested in any sort of moving lights. Not only is it fun for them but its very convenant for you as well. Just walk by, flip the top and it runs for 15 min., the cats get lots of exersise and play without issues and you can relax and watch the fun.

Too fast and cats don't like it
1 Star Review   PETCO   

This was nothing like I thought it would be. I envisioned the mirror spinning, so the laser would move around the whole unit. That is not how this works. The laser spins inside the base, so the oval is fairly small unless you put it on a table. The main problem is the laser spins too fast. It makes about 5 revolutions per second. This is way to fast for a cat to chase. My cats LOVE chasing a laser point, but this they chased only a little. Most of the time they wound up sitting in the center just watching the laser. The laser would also occasionally hit them in the face, which I'm not sure is very good for their eyes. I can't see any good way to turn the unit off. It runs for 15 minutes then shuts off. If you close the top, it starts running again. I think I am going to return it. It's a good idea, but bad execution.

Insanely Fast
2 Star Review   PETCO   

Wonderful idea, POOR product. The light moves around, well...at the speed of light. My cat who loves chasing a laser light will just give up after less than a minute and lie there watching it go around. As a light show, it's great. As a cat exerciser, forget it. I wish they had included a button to control the revolving speed.

FANTASTIC
5 Star Review   PETCO   

If your cat likes to play with a hand held laser, this is terrific. Auto shut off at 15 minutes saves the battery. I put it on a table with the beam pointed at the floor and 2 of our cats will chase it until it shuts itself off. The other cat has never had any interest in laser toys. One of the cats will even come and get me to come and turn it back on.
