Scurrying weasel ball provides pets (and humans) with hours of furry fun! Flip his switch and this wild, wacky weasel jumps, rolls, scoots and darts from pillar to post. Cats especially will have the time of their lives trying to keep up with this rascally rodent! One AA battery (not incl.) fits in 4" round ball.

"I don't know who likes these things more, my cats, or me watching them. Really cute play toy for the animals. Batteries are easy to install." -Customer in Ohio

i would not buy this product again
Dogs just looked at it or followed it but did not play with it. Same with cats. The battery and turn on button are inside the ball. so when you turn on the battery switch inside the ball it starts to spin and it is difficult to line up the two pieces while they are moving and then screw the ball together. Poor directions.

So excited then so let down
I bought this for my car and - although she was initially extremely curious/intrigued with this, as soon as it made its way into a corner or awkward space, she turned around & walked away. I think the total number of minutes spent on this was probably 8 minutes. In fact, I'm not even sure where it is right now.

I would buy this if not having to order it.
The weasel was purchased for my rescue cat. He had 2 old ones and was so worn out had to buy a new one for him. New ones only lasted 3 days. Eyes came off. I also clip the weasel from ball so he can carry it around house too. I will not order this again from Harriet Carter.

A total waste of $$
Bought this for my cat..Would not play with the large ball and it kept stopping, wearing batteries out. Extremely had to turn off & on ...poorly designed..He now plays with the raccoon tail that was attached~ Would not buy this again.

Waist On A Weasel Ball

It didn't work as described and is very poorly designed
We ended up throwing it in th garbage

I would NOT buy this product again!
Batteries very difficult to install because directions aren't clear. Product defective and had to send back for a refund. Brought the Weasel Ball back in the 90's. Was better made and worked perfectly.

Lots of fun!
Fun for cat, dog and grandchildren!

A Dud
This toy looks like a toy all cats would love to play with, but not mine. She was interested in it when I took it out of the box, but would rather play with the box than the toy. It was difficult to get the toy separated to put in the batteries. The weasel does not attach like the photo shows. It has a plastic clothes fastener connecting the two and the weasel does not roll over the ball like the picture shows. I would not buy this again.

My cat will play with it when it's off. When it's on, my cat is afraid of it and runs away.

Looking for a replacement for a 3+ yr. old one I found it in your catalog. I ordered 2 and one was bad out of the box & the 2nd one also had problems out of the box. I called your Co. and 2 replacements were sent out. One worked and the other one didn't. Another call and one more replacement was sent (a different Mfr.). This one is still working. I don't blame Harriet Carter for they immediately sent replacements. I will continue to buy from them. Their purchasing dept. should check out some of these items before sending them out or send them back for credit. The best one was made by "DY TOY". Boo-Boo (the cat) loves them!!! GREAT CUSTOMER RELATIONS WORK!!!

Bought two, one quits running
Bought two of these for our seven cats. One stops everytime. Something sticks inside and if you shake it it'll start. The other one does the same thing only not as often.
Dec 30, 2015
The gear was stripped and it did not work when we received i
Bought two. One had stripped gears and the other worked as described.

My cats are afraid of it. My 9 Mo. old dog wants to play wit
Used to play with cats. They were interested in watching it. They were also a little afraid of it.
Dec 27, 2015

Weasel Ball order
Ordered 2 Weasel Balls as gifts-only 1 of them worked,even with new battery-Very disappointed
Dec 11, 2015
Have bought many toys for my older cat, this is the only one she will play with.
Dec 09, 2015
No! No!No!
did not work EVER
Oct 17, 2015
So Sad
I remember these from years ago. They did work for a long time. These do not work . What a disappointment
Oct 10, 2015
I would buy this product again and again.
I bought it so my cat could play with it. She is afraid of it but I am introducing it to her slowly. It works very well.
Oct 03, 2015
my kitty loves her weasel!
I have as much fun as my kitty

laugh creater
Our new puppy loved chasing this weasel around the room & we loved watching him!
Jan 03, 2015
Very Disappointed
The battery should be larger and more powerful. The idea is fantastic but it won't keep moving if the slightest thing gets in its way. You need a large area without carpet to make it work right.
Dec 29, 2014
poor quality
Do not buy. Moves much slower than expected. The plastic piece that attaches the tail gets tangled inside and makes it stop working at all. Cats were not very interested.
Dec 09, 2014
low value
only worked for a minute
Nov 22, 2014
Not worth the money if you have carpet
I should have read other reviews...This cat toy goes through batteries like nothing I've ever seen and won't roll on the carpet... mid height plush.
Nov 22, 2014
cute but cheap
cheap lasted one hour then died even with new batteries
Mar 07, 2014
Returning this item
I found it very difficult to install the battery. The instructions didn't make sense. Once done, it wouldn't work. It appears that the start button is broken. I will be returning this item. Very disappointed as I was hoping to have fun with my cat.
Jan 25, 2014
moving target for cat
at first this did not work well. then i removed the clear plastic inside the ball that i did not see when i put battery in! WORKS GREAT now. cat interested and stalks it. does not like when it touches him while moving and jumps straight up in the air.

Huge Weasel Toy
The weasel toy is passive entertainment for my two cats. They watch and may touch the tail occasionally. It will keep them occupied for a while. It also takes a good bit of time for my cats to warm up to such a toy.
Dec 29, 2013
Boring toy
My 11 cats absolutely had no use for this toy--so I gave to a friend--no comment
Dec 28, 2013
It is true that batteries are short lived, which would be fine except that it does not work after a days use.. New battery but it makes noise and there is no movement. My cat enjoyed it, and now the toy just lays there without any movement. Is there a warranty since it worked for a day, can I return for replacement or refund.
Dec 03, 2013
Save your money
Use to play with my cat. Whats great about it, when it works my cats enjoys this toy very much. Batteries do not last more than 5 minutes, poorly designed, the weasel tail falls off very easy. Would not recommend.
Nov 14, 2013
Cute but....
I thought my cats would love this and freak out to chase it! But they freaked out, and ran away to hide!! It's a noisy sound and rolls into things and gets caught easily. WASTE OF MONEY!!
Oct 13, 2013
Not all that good
My cat just stares at it, doesn't chase it or bat at it. It used batteries up too fast and keeps stopping while it is still turned on.
Oct 01, 2013
No thanks!
This ball only ran about an hour. I read the poor reviews on it, but tried it regardless. Thank you Harriet Carter for crediting my account after I returned the toy.

Weasel Ball
Product only runs for about 2 minutes max--not hours of furry fun. Cat was initially interested but when it stopped working after about 2 minutes, he just walked away and ignored it. A waste of money and not worth paying to return it.

Save Your Money - Isn't Worth A Buck :(
I was very disappointed with this toy. It's incredibly flimsy, turns itself off when in use, uses batteries quickly, and barely even works. It doesn't work as fast or as well as shown and, in my opinion, isn't even worth a dollar as it's so poorly made and designed. If this toy was better made, it would probably be a blast for both dogs and cats! Unfortunately, the ball is SO big that it can barely roll and the weasel is so tiny & flimsy and attached poorly to the ball (it also is very thin - not a "stuffed" animal). When it DOES start to move around, as soon as it hits something else in the room (a chair, another toy, or sometimes even the wall) it will just stop working and I have to go over to give it a push to get it to start going again. My cats WERE interested in this toy and DID start to chase and play with it - for the first 5 minutes it worked. After that, they became bored as it was just TOO easy for them and not a challenge to catch (or even fun for them to watch anymore, so it no longer held their attention). It just isn't fast enough and doesn't work as shown.

Weasel Ball Cat Toy
My two cats watched this item curiously, but vigilantly. When I turned it off, they showed no interest in it. Uses up battery quickly. I would still suggest this toy to another cat owner, as all cats respond differently to individual toys. Perhaps if toy were smaller, my cats would find it more approachable. One of my cats has a confident personality, the other easily frightened.
Feb 17, 2013
Fun, but---
My cats loved it but it ran out of power fast. The ball is awful to get apart and the screws stripped the threads in the plastic shell the first time it was taken apart to change the batteries.
Feb 15, 2013
BALL TOO BIG, doesn't work anyway
The big ball didn't work anyway. Scarred the kittys. After cutting off the ball, they love the weasel. This review is on the first order of 2. Am ordering 2 more because they love the weasels and have worn out the first 2.
Feb 13, 2013
I was extremely disappointed. It received good reviews...which I usually rely on. Neither of the 2 I purchased worked at all. Yes, new batteries were used. I worked with both to no avail.I really dislike returning items....such a hassle and now have a $7.+ return fee.
Dec 27, 2012
Uses batteries like there is no tomorrow
Although it is a cute toy, it uses batteries like crazy.
Dec 18, 2012
I would buy this again
Very good product I would buy this again and recommend it.
Aug 14, 2012
Love this Weasel Ball and so does my kit
I bought this for my kitten and loved it so much I bought one for my kitty babysitter.
Jul 26, 2012
Great looking, great action, not durable
Great looking item, it lasted 5 minutes with my dog a puppy, although he enjoyed it much, he tore the weasel off in minutes.
Feb 26, 2012
It drives my cats crazy chasing it.
It is a great toy for any cat.
Feb 06, 2012
This is great..
Got it for my puppy.. She loved it..Had to reinforce the weasel so it would stay on the ball.. Trixi loved it.. Gave her a lot of excersice
Dec 30, 2011
Lots of funny intertainment!
I truly love the variety of products that you sell. Something for everyone.
Dec 29, 2011
Too much bang and not enough roll
tried to use it to entertain toy poodle but it frightened her right onto the couch!!LOL
Dec 26, 2011
Hilarious entertainment
Bought this for my husband to entertain our granddaughters. They were hilarious to watch. At first they wouldn't get near it. Then they started petting it and getting a little closer. Fun to watch. Thanks, Jamie

These balls are fun
I used to have one of these for my cat, but it got broken. Now she and my new kitten can play with the new one.
Nov 26, 2011
less than impressed
Bought this as a Christmas gift for a friends' dog. Loves things she can chase and things that make noise. She's a very active dog. Worried that the plastic piece attaching the "Weasel" to the ball, will not hold up.
Sep 10, 2011
My dog loves it
Play toy for my dog - Keep him active - nothing bad to say about product
Aug 30, 2011
Total Waste of Money
Purchased two of these and neither worked at all. One wouldn't even turn on, the other was so weak it wouldn't push the ball around. This was a total waste of money. Wish I had never ordered them.
Jul 21, 2011
Great idea but ball TOO big!
Ball too big. Cats won't play with it =(
Apr 09, 2011
Plastic balls attached are to big
Love the appearance of the toy in your ad but this product is way to large for cats and small dogs. We have both in our househould and all the animals are terrified. Best for middle sized dogs.
Apr 05, 2011
too much whiz and not enough bang
Product doesnt match the picture at all. The "weasel" part was just a piece or strig with fur on it. and eyes.
Mar 25, 2011
its fun to watch
My cats really loved it as long as it lasted. My dog got a hold of it and shook it apart
Feb 17, 2011
Chloe Loves It!
My little dog Chloe loves this toy. It's her favorite.
Nov 14, 2010
The perfect kitty toy
Just turn it on and watch your kitty play. Unlike toys with wheels, this product never gets stuck upside down or in a corner so you don't need to assist. It just keeps on going so your kitty keeps playing and you can enjoy just watching.
Nov 10, 2010
great cat toy
Aug 16, 2010
