Default Play Pens?! ??

Hello all,

So ive had my little Snowy for a whoooole week now!
And she is settling in brilliant! Shes a little huffy every now and then but soon comes around when its time to play.

So i want to get a good sized play pen for her, that i can pop into the middle of my living room and i can keep an eye on her.
Plus my Mum and Dad love to watch her play around too, Bless them!
I have read the other posts around Play Pens but im getting a little confused with ALL the different options.

I dont like the idea of the pop up tents in all honestly. I want something with an open top so i can sit with her and play too.
Can anyone recommend a good brand or anything along those lines??

thanks very much!
Uk Hedgie Mummy to my little Snowy

I have 2 of these ... _obkeOM%3A that I zip tied together with white zip ties (so you really don't even see them) and I bought a heavy duty clear plastic table cloth from Walmart. I used grommets that I bought from a fabric store to put holes in the plastic and ensure it wouldn't keep ripping. I than used more white zip ties to attach to the fence. I have said many times this was the best idea that I've had, it's easy to clean, protects my carpet, zero loss in visibility of her and I can squish it up and tuck it away.

we bought two of these and they just connected together. as for the under part we just put out a fleece blanket. it does come with these two green mats but we'd rather use a blanket. plus you can attach the water bottle in it as well. ... B350%3B350

I got Luna a small plastic kiddie pool from walmart! She LOVES it! it has plenty of room to run around it and its easy to clean if she uses the bathroom in it! It was also pretty cheap ($10) and they have different sizes of course but I highly recommend a pool just because they are so easy to clean up after and you can put a little water in the bottom that she can run in to wash her feet off. Also you can use it outside and inside and dont have to worry about her getting into things!

I got this: Small Animal Play Pen, 15" x 19": Pet Supplies Small Animal Play Pen, 15" x 19": Pet Supplies

when it was MUCH cheaper lol. I have 2 that I hook together and for the "floor" i put down a sheet. That way when (not if) they pee and poop on it I can just shake it out and throw it in the washer with the rest of their hedgie laundry.

I bought a prevue playpen and the size and everything is good ! I put a fleece blanket under it and it's alright :3

The only issue is that my baby pushes on the wires and he moves it. I'm worried about him getting hurt. I always watch him to make sure he's OK :3
