Cardboard Box Reviews

 

As a connoisseur, Sulu devotes many hours to sitting, lying and sleeping in cardboard boxes, assessing them for design, workmanship, size, smell, cosiness, and thrill appeal. Inspired by Amazon's customer reviews,  he shares the results of his exhaustive tests.

Disclosure: Sulu received these boxes free of charge for an honest, unbiased review.

I found this box super-comfortable, with just the right snug size. However, after 4 days the front collapsed under my weight.

This box is solidly constructed, but it is simply too big. It lacks the cosiness I expect from a cardboard box.

This box is purrfect: strong walls with inner lining,  snug fit for a cosy experience. I'd give it 10 stars if I could.

It took me a while to warm to this box. But once I tried it, I loved it. I spent 7 chilly November days cosily curled up inside.

A decent box. A little on the large side, but good for watching humans,. Pleasant for afternoon use.

This box came with a cat toy inside. I prefer the box. The walls are rather thin though and provide little warmth.

Although this box is too large to be ideal, I like the slim design. The comfort level is enhanced by the unusual straw filling.

This box is well made, but  too small even for me.  I couldn't even get in. Should be sold "for kittens only".

My human brought this home from the local grocer's. The size and shape are ok, but I didn't care for the smell.

An exciting box for short-term use. The moment I saw it, I leaped across the room & jumped in, but grew bored quickly.

A quality box. Sturdy construction, with detachable lid. A great gift idea for intellectual cats like me.

A comfortable box, snug-sized with large flaps on three sides,  and helpful "'This Way Up" arrows.

A reasonable box, but the description "for outdoor use" is misleading because it is not rain-proof.

Reliable quality and classy design, as expected from an Apple box. But too shallow to give user satisfaction.

This box has a good size and practical design. As a bonus, it comes filled with pouches of cat food.

Classic design with interesting extras for added comfort. I particularly like the adjustable chin supports.

Although not strong, this box is a good choice for cats who value comfort. It bulges just the way a  box should.

There's just one word to describe this box: SNUG. Perfect in size and design and of sturdy construction.

This box is an abomination. Boxes should be made of cardboard, not plastic. Enough said.

Strong quality cardboard and a timeless, flattering style. I got many compliments for looking cute in this.

Despite the flimsy materials and construction, this box smelled heavenly and gave me several hours of bliss.
