We have reviewed the most popular types of Pop up Tents, Teepees and Activity tunnels and tell you their good and bad points.
We tested them with our rabbits to share their reactions as well as rating them for Value for money, Mess and Noise nuisance.
We explain how these toys can help control unwanted behaviour like hiding under your bed or couch and how they provide shelter and entertainment to keep your rabbit healthy and happy.
Don’t waste money on a toy that may end up being discarded, take a look at our round up below so you can choose the best tent toy for your rabbit.
Our bunnies love the rustling noise these make nand spends time playing in it, jumping over and tossing it about. Our bunny is not a chewer so we can leave this out unsupervised which may not be the case for all rabbits.
This toy was great to keep out bunny amused. Every time we set it out differently out bunny would find exploring it irritable. It does take up quite a bit or room, but the novelty made it a lot more fun they a regular activity tunnel.
We leave one of these out pretty much permanently as our bunny seems to be more comfortable with the shelter it offers in the room. He like the rustle noise it makes and spends more time jumping over and on it then running through it which is still good. It has a peep hole in the center so we make this more fun sometimes by popping some treats inside.
We have tryed this out along side the snuggle tunnel which seemed to be much more of a favorite probably because it ad an additional escape exit.
Our rabbit liked this toy however they prefer toys with a second entrance and exit
We know how important it is to your pet rabbit's health and happiness to have lots of places to explore and rest in. Rabbits are always on the lookout for places to shelter, and prefer spending time in areas that feel protected and out of harm's sight. Providing your rabbit with a few hideout toys can help make them more relaxed and importantly act as a great distraction to keep them out from under your bed or couch which can be unsafe.
We created this review because we understand how hard it can be to get this choice right. Every rabbit is different and there is a wide range of chew toys available that all have their merits.
Small tents can be popped up then packed away when not needed to save space. You even get systems of tunnels and tents you can join together to make an entire warren!
We hope by looking more closely at the good and bad points of each type of toy and by understanding the way it will affect your rabbits behaviour you will be able to make the best choice for you and your rabbit.
Our reviews put the benefits to your rabbits health and wellbeing first. We understand your rabbits instinctive need to rest and play in sheltered areas and our reviews focus on how well each toy helps satisfy this natural behaviour.
We discuss the many benefits they have as well as any negative aspects you should consider. We give advice on how comfortable these toys will be to use for instance when your rabbit crashes in and out of them or jumps on them or chooses to eat them. We would not review toys that are glued together or constructed from materials we consider harmful.
In this guide we also show you how each toy can be used to help bunny proof your home, this is after all what we know best.
It’s natural for rabbits to seek out shelter to explore and rest in however, many of these narrow places such as under or behind your couch, under wooden furniture or your bed can have rough unfinished or exposed materials that may be dangerous. Staples and nails that poke out can cause harm, plastic covers can contain long strands of synthetic material that would cause harm if eaten. Damage can also build up in these areas which can often go unnoticed till expensive repairs are needed.
In this guide we match the bunny proofing problem with the toy so you can make sure you are providing a safe and acceptable alternative that will satisfy your rabbits instinctive needs. Our hope is to help you avoid expensive repairs to your home and to keep your rabbit out of the vets.
