Is a DIY Tape Measure Cat Toy Brilliant or Baffling?

I admit when a pal shared her crafty creation idea with me, I was worried it would result in something dangerous. However, she proudly showed off her tape measure re-creation and it looked rather recreational for her frisky feline. Many cats go crrrazy for fronds of all time so she took a tiny, retractable tape measure and taped a few bright feathers to the end.

To play she lets it out a few feet and then presses the button and it flies in, drawing her kitty down from any perch. She was careful to point out to use the small measures, not the ones with hard plastic tape, and to test it out in a cat free room first to make sure it doesn't fly up as it slips back in. Would your pets dig this project . . . or will you take a pass?
