CrackleChute Collapsible Tunnel

100% Positive Reviews
Rated #1 in Cat Toys


Pros: It's crackly, long and has a whole to jump in and out of

Cons: The loose ties are not good, my cats ate them

My Boys love this tunnel. It's fun to play in and after 2 yrs, they still play in and around it. They are 2 yrs old.

Pros: Inexpensive, long lasting, can connect multiple tunnels together, cats love the crackling

Cons: none really, different colors would be nice ...

This is a great toy. I have two of these and sometimes tie them together using the ties on the tunnel ends, for an extra long race track for the cats. They enjoy having stuff like balled up paper thrown into the tunnel so they can chase and capture it. They also like having string toys dangled through the hole midway down the tunnel so they can race in and catch it.


The only real improvement I can think of is more than one color. It's sort of a plain tan on the outside. Not a big deal though.


Prices vary a lot on this toy. Check your local Petsmart and other stores to see if they have it cheaper than Amazon.


Pros: raceway from hither to yon, hole to jump in and out of, place to lurk and launch attacks. Seems indistructable!

Cons: Purchased at Goodwill for my daughter's kitten, who totally ignored it for 2 years.

After dusting this little gem for 2 years as my daughter's cat ignored it, I rehomed it for my 12 week kitten. He immediately began racing through it, made 30 foot runs through 2 rooms to dive into the hole [again, again, again]. Loves to chase wine corks, jingle balls, and imaginary mice through the tunnel and knock them back out the other side again. I've caught him dragging his stuffed animals from one end to the other. Catpucinno is now 7 months old and this is still one of his favorite toys. Needs no excuse to gallop in one end and out the other, just to repeat the loop. He grabs it with his teeth to drag it to the part of the room he wants to place it in, no damage to the chute!


Pros: Fun, sturdy during play

Cons: moves easily, loud, strings dangle from one entrance

I'm surprised how much my cat likes this really simple toy! He always drags me over to it when we're playing so I can put toys in the tunnel and let him chase things in there. When he's playing by himself he loves to run through it. I like that it has a hole in the top. When he rolls around and kicks in the tunnel, the material moves with him and doesn't tear. It's holding up really well, and it's one of my cat's favorite toys. One annoying thing is that it's really easy for him to push around, so as he runs through it he winds up pushing it into things and I have to move it back. Also, it sounds like my cat is running through a pile of plastic grocery bags, which I don't mind but I could see getting on some people's nerves.


Pros: Can be compacted for easy storage, cats LOVE it

Cons: Can trip you if not careful!

This was one of many things a friend gave to me after I decided to adopt my two kittens in July. This is probably the thing they got THE most enjoyment out of. Not just them, but even my older kitties (one of my 13 year olds and my 16 year old) had a good time with it. I spent hours though watching the kittens run right through it at the speed of light, watching them pop through the hole in the middle, or just pouncing on each other with on of them inside.


Pros: Love to run through the tunnel or just sit inside or play hide and seek

Cons: It makes a little noise when the kittens run through in the early morning hours. Oh well . . . its all in fun :)

My two kittens, Freeway and Exit Love Love Love the CrackleChute Tunnel.  This is one of their favorite toys. I'm thinking of getting a couple more.

Pros: Good hiding place. They like the hole in it to peek out of

Cons: kinda big, noisy but tolerable

The furkids got this for Christmas. My Sophie likes anything cave like so I figured she'd love it. So far she hasn't really tried it but Lilith loves it. She like to hide in it and stalk her sister in it since she can peek out through the hole in the middle of it and she's small enought to fith through there for an ambush. It does take up some floor space but she likes it and isn't that what matters? :lol3:


Pros: Cats love it

My cats like to wrestle with each other inside the tunnel. Sometimes one of them will use it as a hiding place or a napping spot. They don't mind the crinkle when they're napping and they love it when they're playing.

My mom's cats' favorite game is to chase a wand toy back and forth and back and forth through this tunnel. She'll do it for hours. 


Pros: hours of play, sturdy, lightweight

Cons: kind of loud at night

Comet loves this. I got it used, they had bought it 2 years ago. It still is like new. Comet runs through it, pops out in the middle or either end and just has a blast. I connect it to his play cubes and he has hours of fun hiding, hunting, and running. silver.gif


Pros: Fun for cats to play and even sleep in

Cons: I can't think of any

I bought this new at a no-kill animal shelter.  I mainly purchased it, along with several other items, to help fund the shelter; I didn't really think my adult cats would take any interest in it.  I was wrong.  From the moment I brought it home, Daisy fell in love with it.  When she takes a play spell, she runs through the chute at full blast.  She considers it "hers".  She often sleeps inside of it, just peeking out of the end.  I told my husband that this was the best $3.00 that I've ever spent.  I highly recommend this product.
