Default Re: Playpen - how to make a Correx playpen

This has inspired me to make my own playpen for my new little hammy, Heaven. Since her cage is extremely small ( it does have three stories, but still. ) and I can't get her a new one just yet, I'll make her this and let her play in it when she wakes up at dusk. Mostly, I just let her roll around in her little rolly ball, which she adores.

Loving this idea... but is there anywhere to get smaller bits of the plastic? I don't particularly need it 24 inches high, at that height you could probably keep a toddler from escaping lol

ebay sells lots of different sized correx, but be careful with reducing the side height as toys act as great climbing toys for escapes.

I must have spent the last hour looking for correx, cant find a decent size.

So going for corrugated cardboard which wont last as long but ive found 20 sheets for 6 something, the correx was going to be 27!

Don't buy cardboard off ebay!!! You can get it for free.
I've been looking at this thread and thought this was a great idea, but the correx was way too expensive.
So today I went to a local shop, got some huge boxes from them and I've cut them up to get the right sized panels.
I bought some food bag clips and used them to hold the panels together. It looks just like the correx playpens, but it's made out of cardboard and it cost me two pound!!!
I can't wait to test this out tonight I'm gonna put my syrian Gimli in it and see if it's escape proof and most importantly if he actually enjoys it

I happend to have printer boxes and a television box which i used. But you could probably get cardboard if you ask at a store somewhere (IKEA is good, they usually have some lying around outside)
