If you love Halloween, chances are you enjoy dressing up your pets in fun costumes and giving them holiday-themed toys and snacks. I know I do! My dogs received an adorable pumpkin-shaped stuffed toy this year, and…spoiler alert– they have matching chicken costumes that they will be wearing at the end of the month.

Even if you don’t necessarily want to dress up your pets, you can give them spooky fun with Chewy’s new Halloween Goody Box. These holiday boxes are available for both dogs and cats, and when we tested them, the curated bundles were a big hit with our furry friends.
What is a Goody Box?
Goody Boxes are collections of toys and treats for your pet, available exclusively from Chewy. They are similar to a subscription like BarkBox, but the main difference is that Goody Boxes are one-time purchases, not recurring deliveries. Boxes start at around $24.99 and each contains five or more full-size items, often from internal Chewy brands like Frisco and American Journey.
There are usually several gift boxes available on Chewy’s website, including options for large and small dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens. There are special Goody Boxes for birthdays, and the brand also introduces seasonal Goody Boxes around major holidays, like Halloween and Christmas.
What’s in the Halloween Gift Box?
Chewy recently released their new Halloween Goody Boxes, so of course we wanted to see what was included. We purchased the Haunted Tails Cat Goody Box, and my kitten Piper was more than happy to help us evaluate its contents. Here are all the products that came in this Goody Box:
The items in the box total a value of over $35, so you’re definitely saving money by buying the collection instead of buying the products separately.
Here’s what we loved
Since she’s a kitten with endless energy, Piper had fun diving into her Goody Box, literally. Before I could even take a few pictures, she was climbing into the box to see what treats were waiting for her.
The first thing she caught were the spiders filled with catnip, which she could easily carry by their legs. She dragged one out of the box and ran off to play with it, until one of my dogs took it from her. Undeterred, she returned to the box – a toy in itself, honestly – to see what else she could play with. This time, the salmon flavored squeeze treats caught her eye and she started chewing on the packet. I indulged her with one of the tubes of fish-flavored porridge, and although the smell and texture put me off a bit, Piper had no such complaints.
However, the real winner of this box was undeniably the Halloween-themed play tunnel, which has a fun checkered exterior and makes a crackling sound when your cat crawls inside. As soon as I opened the tunnel, Piper dove in, and she’s been living there pretty much ever since. She loves that there’s a dangling bat that she can sneak attack, and she really enjoys hiding in the tunnel before jumping up to grab my or the dog’s feet. It’s definitely a 10/10 in his book!
Should I buy it?
We’ve been fans of Chewy Goody Boxes since their introduction, and the quality of this product hasn’t waned over the years. We’ve tested Both Dog Goody Boxes and Cat Goody Boxes have always contained top quality products that have been a hit with our pets – and the new Halloween Goody Box is no exception! My kitty had days of entertainment from the toys and treats included in the box, and the fun seasonal theme was an added bonus. (The brand also recently launched its Goody Boxes for the winter holidays, which look just as adorable.)
Conclusion: You can’t go wrong getting a Goody Box for your pet. You’ll get a variety of full-size toys and snacks at a great price, so you can give your furry friend a fun surprise, and the one-time purchase is far less of a commitment than a subscription box complete. There really is no downside!
