This week the lovely folk at Smartkitz sent the Squidgypigs their “Midi Slot and Go” to review.
What is a Midi Slot and Go?
- Precut cardboard maze components.
What can your pet do with a Midi Slot and Go?
- Play in it.
- Run through the holes.
- Chew it.
- Climb on it.
Where can I buy it?:
- Amazon: Smartkitz Midi Slot and Go
- I thought this was a really fun product and enjoyed slotting together the component to design a maze worthy of The Squidgypigs.
- I think most children would thoroughly enjoy ‘helping’ to piece together the maze.
- My daughter certainly enjoyed the experience although needed some help lining everything up.
- Being made completely from recycled cardboard the Midi Slot and Go is environmentally friendly and I’m sure you could either recycle or compost the product once you are finished with it.
- The smaller/younger pigs really enjoyed darting in and out of the maze to pick up food and play but the Smartkitz Midi Slot and Go’s only fault is that a couple of our particularly fluffy (read as tubby) fully grown adult Guinea Pigs couldn’t actually fit through the holes!
- This isn’t to say that everyone would have the same problem; after all Guinea Pigs come in a wide range of sizes.
- But sadly our larger chubby fluffers just didn’t stand a chance. Sorry Blondie.
- I’m guessing the product would be more suited to smaller rodents.
- I could see rats, Syrian hamsters and possibly mice enjoying the product; however I fear the holes may be too small for fully grown chinchillas and certainly too small for the majority of rabbits.
- I really loved the idea of this fun to build product and was terribly disappointed that it was simply too small for some of our piggies.
- If you have naturally small pigs I’m sure they would get a lot of pleasure from the Midi Slot and Go.
- Sadly if your piggies are on the larger side or indeed long haired this is sadly probably a product to miss. (Sad piggy face).
