I was a bit sceptical about the cost of this, but my guinea pigs love it. They go in and out of their hutch and run as they please, and use the run much more than I would have put them out for. They have mad half hours running up and down the tunnel. Love love love
Great buy ! Sturdy made, easy to install and hook together . I really like that it has a door I can open or close if I want my rabbits to stay in one area . My two rabbits love this tunnel and I plan to purchase more .
I was very surprised by the great quality of the Omlet products. We have now created a small village and the kids love it. Very easy to assemble and easy to take apart for cleaning. More orders to come!
My house and run combo are linked by tunnels to this run, to give my buns a bit more space. I am going to buy the extending panels though as it is still not that big an area. My rabbits much prefer having the run with skirt and being on the grass, rather than the underfloor mesh in the run. Be warned this is not quick to put together - loads of small pieces that have to be clipped together with small plastic clips. It is more sturdy than you think it is going to be, but I still like to put it near a wall where it can't be knocked over. Having the pre-cut door for adding a tunnel is a big relief as cutting the mesh of the run was a nightmare.
I have the original square version of the Zippi pen (from 2 months’ back), not this one, and there have been some improvements. Because I have two bunny brothers who fell out of love after neutering, I have to adapt every Omlet product with a dividing wall. The original concept was that the Zippi runs would allow the bunnies to mow the lawn in sequence. I spent a lot of time moving the heavy outdoor run/ eglus around last year to find a fresh patch of grass free from bunny holes, so it’s a great idea. The bracing also looks good on this pen. I think the four by four panel version is actually big enough as a satellite pen. Your choice here is the anti dig skirt or the floor mesh to keep them safe from getting out/ foxes getting in.. The big pen had just the skirt, as it is very heavy and doesn’t lift in the wind, even with a cover. I’m a bit concerned that this is relatively light and needs the Omlet ground pegs to secure it (I’ve not tried them yet). They did dig under the dividing wall with no skirt to pursue their quarrel (even through drought baked clay in 2018). However I’m not too sure if the undermesh version I have will cause sore hocks (having come across an indoor rabbit via Twitter who got this condition on carpet- no more vet bills, please!) The cut out panel is brilliant, having spent an afternoon with a pair of hefty pliers cutting the mesh for two doors (ouch). Proud lawn owners need to loosen up a little. My furry under gardeners are improving the drainage and adding fertiliser, although you do need a few bags of topsoil AND grass seed to use as bunnyfiila after you move a run. The tunnel system has to run from A to B to be of use, but the new bigger pen does mean a larger initial outlay when tunnel accessories like the pop ups provide important play value. The system itself works indoors and out and it has made the boys much happier in their winter quarters.
I bought this to supplement the bits from the original single height roofed and floored Zippi pen, which consisted of mostly square panels. With this you get six long lengths and four single lengths (I was expecting 8 long lengths because I didn’t scroll through the pictures). They are building blocks and run clips and it doesn’t matter how you arrange them. It is an impressive non bending solid mesh panel. Anyway, now I’ve got a sturdier (divided) pen for winter indoor/ summer outdoor use and a low height association pen for inside the house, to try to bond my snapping bunny brothers. I’m really not sure how you would use it in its original configuration at all without extra parts.
