Lightbulb Re: Playpen - how to make a Correx playpen

Hi everyone, I saw the first people to post about making a Correx playpen after buying a metal vertical wire playpen, which lasted about 5 minutes before the hamster escaped. Anyway the Correx playpen is perfect and the hamster cannot escape although she has tried all that she can. Little houdini she is. I bought 20 sheets of A3 Correx with a Short Flute (this means the bendy flute bit is vertical so the pen is only A4 height, so kids can step into the pen to play with the hamster, but the hamster cant get out. If you were to have long flute then it would be too tall. I bought from e-bay from trent plastics for around 20. Just make sure you specify "Short Flute" as this is important and if possible put the request for this on the actual order itself somewhere, if not on an e-bay message to them against the order. I also bought bulldog clips to suit to clip it all together. I bought 36 x 32 mm bulldog / foldback clips from Euroffice for around 8.30 inc packaging. This means I have enough to clip together up to 18 pieces of the Correx. You only need about half that, but its up to you and the size of your house.

It really gave the hamster lots of room to run around in and you can put plenty of toys and loo rolls and all sorts for them to investigate.

Coroplast is corrugated plastic sheets. They use it to make signs from. The signs you see on the side of the road stuck in the ground are made from it. The cheapest way to get it in the US is to call around to sign companies in your area and see if they will sell you some. Tell them what you want to use it for and they will be more agreeable. we bought some when I was making a guinea pig cage. The size of the sheet was 4 foot by 8 foot if I'm not mistaken and was $10 or $15 a sheet. much cheaper than getting it online.

I think it is called Correx (or Corex) as well - so if you can't find Coroplast in the US try searching for Corex. I got 10 sheets of A1 Corex on ebay uk for 29.95 which included the postage. They are huge and would make a pen half the size of our living room! They arrived within two days, well packaged as well. Here's the link for the seller I bought from:

The link is for White Corex even though it shows lots of different colours, it does say white: Must get round to making ours!
