Subscription boxes is in the rage these days, from beauty, food to even dog subscription boxes. So my human got me a trial subscription box from Wigglebox.sg.
If you have a short attention span (like me) and like surprises in a box to be delivered to your home monthly (dogs especially love new toys and goodies). For human subscription boxes, there are new stuff in their boxes monthly, and things are curated for the box, usually at a discount from retail prices. Dog subscription boxes are similar that way.
So what do I like about Wigglebox so far?
I like it that there was free and reliable delivery. The morning on the day the item was delivered to my home, my human received an sms in the morning to inform her that the courier will deliver the item at a specific window of time later that same day.
It was all very exciting for me, to see this man at the door with a box with an orange ribbon, with a box of stuff just for me! Only for me! And to think that just 1.5 weeks ago, I was still in a cage in a petshop.
The human didn’t even take a proper photo of the box with the nice orange ribbon, she just couldn’t wait and ripped open the box, I suspect she is more excited about my stuff than I am.
The next thing I liked was that the box was bigger than I am, I could sit in it and practice my pensive look.
This was a trial box at $28, with 5 items. I packet of treats, 3 toys and a product sample.
Product Plans :
One Time Trial Box – $28
3 month Plan @ $26 a month – $78

What’s in the box?
1. Wellness Petite Treats in Duck, Mango and Coconut 170g – Retail Price $9.50 from Pet Lover Centre
My human just got a pack for me last week in a different flavour. I can regretfully only eat 1-2 a day, as the woman is stingy with her treats. For a chihuahua pup, 120 pieces in a pack of treats can last me a long time. So this pack will be going to Uncle Moey (my human’s extended family’s 7 year old Sheltie).
Uncle Moey is really benefitting from all these really, ever since I came into my human’s life, she has been buying treats for me and then sharing them with Uncle Moey.
2. Warren London Sample – Deep Cleaning Paw Fizz Tablets 30g (4 tablets)
Retail price probably ZERO, cos my human who was trained in Marketing in Consumer Goods says that it cost them nothing to have it in the package. All it took was Wigglebox people to seek sponsorships from brands and they usually give it FOC to them.
This will go to uncle Moey too, as my pink tender paws have only seen the marble in the home, I am still not a fan of the concrete and the grass as far as I know. Come on woman, you have to give me time!
3. Rope Toy – Retails price estimated the most $6
4. Bedroom slipper squeaky soft toy $4.50
My human saw it at Lazada.com at that price
5. Life Buoy looking toy – Retail price estimated the most $6
Total Estimated Value at $26
As you can see in the photos, the toys are quite big. Again I am in extra small sized now, so everything will look big relative to my size.
I may be small and don’t eat too much treats, but only 1 treat in the box?
As for the toys, they may be aesthetically impressive due to their size relative to my size, but it doesn’t entertain me for very long. There needs to be more customisation on the toys especially for toy sized dogs, in fact even an option for puppies will be so much cooler. The slipper thing is pretty good with its squeaky feature and plush fabric, but there are many toy Poodles, Shih tzus, Yorkshire Terriers, Malteses with small mouths that will prefer smaller toys.
My human paid $28 for the subscription box, so I was hoping that I could get more treats of toys for a better value.
My human said that we will likely not continue our subscription with Wigglebox until we see some improvements in their offerings. So far, I am really not impressed by Wigglebox.
I don’t particularly enjoy it when my human makes me pose for picture especially with that big buoy thing around my head, but hey! A pup eventually needs to get use to having the phone camera at his face and learn to stay still for photos.
My human told me that there are two more subscription boxes coming our way in the next couple of weeks, one from Malaysia and another catered for puppies from the USA.
So how will Wigglebox compare with these other subscription boxes? Stay tune for my next review!
Woof! Signing out!
