      How to Connect All the Crunchy Series

      As many of you piggy parents know, GuineaDad Crunchy Condo is actually the packaging we use for our full sized GuineaDad Liners. Many piggy parents wanted the Crunchy Condo by itself, so now we have been selling them individually, in packs of three! That's not all though! 

      Like most of our products, they come in our innovative packaging that we call the Crunchy Series, that also turn into hideys. The smaller size GuineaDad Liners (without pockets) comes packaged in a Crunchy Tunnel, and The Queen's Castle comes packaged in our Crunchy Castle. The best part about the Crunchy Series is that they can connect all together! Hideys are an essential part of a guinea pig home, because they encourage play and place to feel safe!

      Guinea pigs love tunnels!

      Just punch open the lower perforated corners of the Crunchy Condo or Crunchy Castle, and punch the perforated windows of the Crunchy Tunnel! Bend the windows back and slide the window flap through the slot of the Crunchy Condo and/ or Crunchy Castle. Just like that, you'll have one big hidey for your guinea pigs to play in!

      What Makes the Crunchy Condo Special?

      Make Them Feel Secure Guinea pigs are very timid animals and are prone to hiding due to their natural guarded instincts. A guinea pig hidey is an essential piece to a comfortable guinea pigs’ habitat, and one you should take great consideration in. Our GuineaDad Crunchy Condo offers the safety, comfort and shelter they need to live a happy lifestyle.

      Supports Dental Health GuineaDad Crunchy Condo can also be used as a hideout and toy for your guinea pigs to gnaw on to help promote healthy and normal dental wear. Dental health is an important element to be weary of when caring for guinea pigs. That's why we designed a reusable, recyclable, and non-toxic cardboard for guinea pigs to ingest.

      The Fun Design Our GuineaDad Crunchy Condos also include fun aesthetic designs featuring our GuineaGang Characters, like Goong, to provide a welcoming feel to your piggies new home. Goong is a notorious cliff-climber and herb picker, so the perfect character for these hideys. We even included a special characteristic of small perforations alongside Goong, plus a small rope for added pleasure too. This perforation is the best part since it allows you to completely punch it out for an open space for your guinea pig to have a fun photo. Talk about a crowd favorite!

      Everything Goes Together! Our Crunchy products literally all connect together. You can connect your GuineaDad Crunchy Condo hidey with all of our other Crunchy Series products (Crunchy Tunnel, Crunchy Castle) to create the most elaborate home condo experience for your guinea pig. Try them all today!
