I looked in both Housing and accessories, and Toys and I couldnt find a thread for these.
We went to the city yesterday and I was looking for a saucer wheel...which no one had. BUT! I did discover a nifty contraption. It's a play pen, I dont know if any one else uses them? The one I have is metal and high enough to hold rabits and the bars are small enough not to let mice through. Its also fairly heavy so its not like hedgie and use toilet paper tank to push the pen around the floor! :lol: It folds up easily too, and easy to store! I think its great haha

Luna is obsessed with her play pen. She wasn't so sure about it at first, but once I added her wheel, a wad of tissue paper, a couple tubes and a box it was one heck of a crazy hour. I had her in the pen while I cleaned her cage but she literally cried when I tried to take her out after that. A really loud squeaking, snuffling and clicking cry. No quills being poofed out, I thought she was hurt at first lol She gets excited when she sees me even move the pen folded up. She even ran in her wheel while in the pen!!! Which is amazing for me, she hasn't touched for what, must be three months or so?


SO! haha I recomend getting a play pen, if you dont have one already. It makes cleaning cages easier, instead of trying to get someone to babysit or putting hedgie in a box. It's also great if you have chores to do but still want hedgie with you, I put her in the kitchen while I do dishes lol And for homework or things like that. Plus it makes a great divider between Luna and other pets. The cats would follow her when I had her out occasionally, now they can only sit and watch and they get bored of that after 5 minutes or so

Get on it people :p Play Pens!!

We have a play pen, too. Damian actually learned how to climb up and over the top of it, even though it has vertical bars, so he doesn't get to play in it anymore. Our bigger, less nimble guys love it though!

I'm looking for another one. The one I got was like $15 and now I'm seeing them for like $35. :roll:

Playpens are great but I advise getting the Midwest one that is 15" high. The 9" ones that are most often sold in the stores can easily be climbed and if not climbed, are light enough to put a nose under and lift up. :lol:

The hedgegirls have a play pen too, except ours are made from poly cubes

As seen here on Target.com

we also have one for our hedgies :D

my sisters hedgehog found out how to open the gate :shock:
Haha silly smart hedgies. My hedgehog managed to both climb over and open the play pen. Needless to say I have to find a new one :p
But yeah, play pens are great! And if you ever want to take hedgie outside, you can set the playpen up out there as long as you have checked the area first and are watching to make sure hedgie doesn't escape/dig out!

one of my hedgies hates his playpen too - he always tries to climb the vertical bars or he just runs around the perimeter pushing at it to see if there are any weaknesses he can use to get out from - I bought a few of them to link them all up together so it nearly covers the room - he still runs around the perimeter even if I use all of them together :?

I haven't put Tak in our playpen yet (I might try it tonight), but Mac loved being in it. We put a saucer wheel in and he went nuts! I would run in the wheel for a while then make laps around the perimeter, take a drink, then go back to his wheel! I never left him in it without me in the room because I was concerned with him finding a way out, or our cats or dog knocking it over.

It will be interesting to see what Tak thinks of it!
