Play Station Revisited

Playing with the Play Station

We thought we'd share a fun variation of the Play Station idea that we introduced a few weeks ago. The Play Station continues to be a hit with our piggies and we quite like this variation with the grids that turn the Play Station into more of a Summer Cabana!

Review our blog post on how to make the original Play Station, then instead of a one grid top, just use two regular grids. A cool-looking house is born! The piggies will be quite intrigued with it. Check out the Cagetopia Specialty Grids and put your creative cavy cage hat on.

Adding a Fleece Forest across the top is a great look for this version. It's quite fun sitting down to play with and outfit this Play Station with fleece and toys with your guinea pigs running around and checking things out -- an enjoyable delight! You can have a lot of fun playing guinea pig house!

I have to share (wish I had a video) that while revising my Play Station, I had removed one toy and set it aside to add some new ones. Petey, one of my favorite piggies (well, they are all favorites), nabbed the pretty big Wheeker Wreath and like an ant carrying back a huge food item to their nest, slowly dragged the Wheeker Wreath to the entrance of a floor hidey while he enjoyed attacking and munching on it for a quite a while. Our Munchable toy line is really a hit with the piggers.

Hi Leah, Sure! I link to the original article, which is where the parts list is to make this: You just need to add one more normal grid to it and just tent the two top grids together with cable ties. We don't sell this as a simple kit with instructions, but quite frankly, you don't need it. Just get the grids listed, cut a piece of coroplast to fit on the grid (we'll be adding some Coro Topper items soon), have a bunch of zip ties. Plan on making a few mistakes, so have extra zip ties. That's pretty much always required in cage building process. :) They really do love this thing. I use it for floor time.

Can I link this to the cage as like an extension?

Well, not really. This has open sides all the way around. When you are extending a cage, you still need cage walls and the ability to easily clean it. You'd have to cut down the wall for access. It's really not designed for that purpose.
