Grab That Toy

Hello everyone, I’ve hijacked Dezi’s blog today to tell you about something that makes my life a little easier. As you all know I had an accident years ago that left me disabled. And through the years for some strange reason I just keep getting older too. LOL It’s funny how that happens, isn’t it? Well as time goes on it gets more and more difficult for me to bend over or stretch up to reach some things. It’s not really safe for me to be climbing in chairs or little footstools to try to reach things on top shelves or cabinets. But living in a small apartment I must take advantage of all storage spaces available, and sometimes that means putting something in a spot that’s hard for me to get to later. We get all kinds of emails and we do get some asking how I do some things especially in the mornings when I can’t walk. So I thought we’d give you a little break today from the serious and tell you about one of the products I use.

Thankfully there’s a product that helps me access those things that are out of my reach. Calibre Products makes a tool called the #Reach it Grab it. It’s stronger than it looks and more durable than one might think. It’s rustproof, easy to use and has a comfortable grip. I don’t mind telling you that I’ve owned a few different types of these through the years at a variety of price points. And when I first saw the price of this one, I was a bit shocked and thought it was terribly over priced. But after receiving mine (free of charge for this review) and using it, I have to admit that it is a quality product and well made. It will most likely hold up a lot longer than the cheaper versions I have used in the past. It’s pick up head is completely rubber so you get a better grasp than you would with just 2 small rubber pieces that is common with this type of tool. The aluminum arm is quite sturdy and although lightweight is able to hold up to a couple of pounds.

It has come in handy even when playing with the girls. They like a good game of fetch now and then, but occasionally get side tracked before they make it back to me. Well that’s okay, I can get my Reach it Grab it and just pick up the toy and continue the game. And when I need to get a can out of the lower cabinets, no problem. The Reach it Grab it is slender enough to fit between cans to pick up the right one. The uses for the Reach it and Grab it are endless. Our apartment is set up in a way that the only telephone jack is in the kitchen. So in the mornings when I’m wheelchair bound I can easily use the Reach it Grab it to get the phone and take it with me to my chair in the living room. And when I’m on the computer and taking notes, if I happen to drop a pen or piece of paper, it’s easily picked up with the Reach it Grab it. And the girls love it because I can reach a bag of treats that has been put out of their reach. They don’t like that it has such a good grip the treats don’t spill, but hey, you can’t please everybody all the time, right? LOL

About Deziz World

My name is Deztinee. I am a Ragdoll. I was born 11/1/2009. I am a service cat along with my sisfur RaenaBelle, also a Ragdoll, for our disabled human mommy. My sisfur Raena was born 4/21/2016. In March of 2016, mommy and I had to say goodbye to my mentor Alexandra (Lexi), a black tabby born 4/29/1999. This blog is about our daily life from the kitty's point of view. We were both rescued from bad situations and our mommy raised us and trained us to be service cats. I want this blog to be interactive and get to know all of you, so comment and visit often. I will also offer advice, training tips and education when possible.

  1. Thank you so much for telling us all about this and I also have the sam problem you do. With MS I can no longer climb either and like you have to use every inch of storage space in this small apt. This will help me totally and I am going to order one.
    Hugs your way to you and your sweet kitties.

  2. That is excellent! Don’t laugh, but Mumsy’s cane has a rubber-like cap on the end of it. And it is great for pulling things over to her. AND, the top of it has a curve like a shepherd’s hook and it’s great for grabbing things…even kitties that are headed for something maybe they don’t need to play with.

    Wow. That looks pretty neat if you ask me. Mama has a grabber but not one like that. I think she could grab just about anything she would need to with that one. If we are ever looking to get her another one we’ll check this one out for sure.
    Thanks for this review.
    Love you all so very much. Lots of hugs and kisses.

    That is a great picking up tool, Miss Audra.

    The peeps where meowmy works have various devices like that, but none as strong or useful as yours. Maybe they need to read your blog, MOL!!
