Rosewood Reversible Snuggle Tunnel Review – Come On Through!
This fleece tunnel could be a big hit with your guinea pigs. It is a good size and measures 28cm long and 20cm wide. This can be placed into the washing machine at 30 degrees. The main advantage is that it can be reversed, so on the inside you can have polycotton and soft plush on the outside or vice versa. This is useful as it can adapt to different environments and also my guinea pigs love actually just lying on it, like a bed with the soft plush. The tunnel can stay open and shaped, as it has a wire frame inside the material.
- Good price when I purchased
- Provides guinea pig with adequate room
- machine washable
- Long lasting
- Easy to clean
- Is cosy for your pet
- Polycotton will attract a lot of hairs
- May need to be washed quite a bit
- Could have more material to soak in urine
Do you need something that provides a comfortable experience and a good hiding place for your guinea pigs, well this might be for you. I have now had my tunnel for over 18 months and it is still in good condition after being used in a hutch every day. They love their hiding spots and tunnels are great at giving them that security.
One of the little designs that I like, is the red paw print. It is a nice effect and stands out well, obviously this is pleasing to our eyes, guinea pigs are probably not that bothered, as they might not be able to see it. It is a quality made product by the well known brand of Rosewood, they produce no end of various pet items. It’s not a heavy item and is sleek looking.
As can be seen on the cons list, I think that maybe a thicker fleece base could have been used along with the polycotton layer on top, so it can soak up more urine. So they may be walking or lying on a bit of wet, with how it is currently. Of course it’s not a serious problem, as they won’t be spending all the time in the tunnel. You may like to place a little fleece pad inside. The colour as can be seen is grey, but it would be nice if there were more colours available, probably more for our own benefit. I don’t think the piggies could care less what colour it is.
I personally think it is a great tunnel to use and would be a good addition to their habitat or playpen. Guinea pigs love fleece items as they are obviously soft for them. Considering it is a fleece based item, it actually is at a decent price. Because it is flexible, it is not something that will always be standing up like a wicker one for example, which is not a bad thing, as it has got two uses. There is a thicker material on the openings, so they can keep open.
