I noticed that someone mentioned buying the ball pit from the ELC and it is an amazing idea! :(|) In past winters my oldest girls didn't get very much exercise because they couldn't go in their run and I hated that they had to stay in their hutch most days. I did bring them in for floor time but my parents didin't like the mess they made! :red So I need a solution to them getting floor time! :)

When I saw this ball pit I was amazed at the price and what a good idea it is. :(|) My parents have even agreed to let me buy one cos they too want my piggies to get exercise especially now there are 3 of them after I got my new baby in July! ;)

So... is it big enough as an indoor run for my 3 girls? ;)

I personally prefer the pink. :))

Hiya, I started a thread a couple of weeks ago seeking ideas for an indoor run. The Ball Pit is what was suggested, just by chance I called into an ELC by me today and managed to get one that was leftover from Summer!

I think this would be fine for 3 girls, it would give them an opportunity to see something else than just the inside of their hutch for the winter months.

I also heard of people using shower curtains and plactic backed picnic blankets to line the bottom of their ball pits.

That's really good. :) Do you have any pics and is it fold-able?

This is the ball pit not long after I got it. I now line it with newspaper and fleece. It's great. You can fold it away easily and it is so light.

You won't be disappointed. I wonder why someone hasn't created something like this for indoor piggies, something with a waterproof base.

It's the same material as the sides. You have to make sure there is enough paper under the fleece to stop any pee soaking through to the carpet.
