I've seen them and think they're cute, but I won't spend $26.99 on it!

Cute, but definitely not worth more than $10.  I have one, and the only reason I bought it was because it was on sale  :P

I bought two at the same time, one for each level of my FN. By the time I had the first one up and was working on the second one my boys had already chewed right thru the side of it and were working on chewing off one of the straps. By morning both had all 4 straps chewed thru and had become mats for them to sleep on.... sigh

I saw it on ebay; I think it was $16. I wish I had bought it when I saw it. I did buy the octoplay and my guys love it.

Okay, I'm leaning towards not getting the Ferret Ark, because of the price for how long it supposedly lasts. But I did like the looks and comments(thanks, ratsandcats!) of the Octoplay!  :BlueDumboSmile:

That is really cute!

I used to have a hot air balloon kind of like that for my girls with a sleeping section at the top and one at the bottom.  They chewed a hole in the bottom because they wanted another access point but otherwise it lasted awhile. :)

I have one for my rat Cirdan. He loves it. He threw the fleece lining out, but he does that to all his beds. He's taken to stashing food in it lately which is a bit annoying.
My two ferrets also have one, and they too love it.

I can say that 9 female rats can fit in there  :P and while my girls never destroyed or peed in it, they did chew through most of the straps leaving it a grounded boat. I got mine for free and wouldn't pay that much for one.

My ferrets adore theirs. It's a bit expensive to buy for rats because they might chew it up. :) It'd be adorable for a photo shoot, though!

My boyfriend's rats don't through the straps of items from that company (though we've never tried the ark). I once had a hammock from them, though, and *my* rats chewed through the straps very quickly so I doubt I'd buy the ark. I have the octoplay and they love it, but it's on the ground for playtime so no straps and not in the cage.
