My kittens have loved the CrackleChute since I adopted them at two months of age. They play with it everyday, diving in at each other, as well as "attacking" each other while one is inside and the other is outside. The chute is 33.5" long, and the openings have a 9.5" diameter. As you can see from the video, the crinkling is quite loud, and so it's probably not something you'd like to keep anywhere you sleep. It also slides all over the floor, and I've learned to keep it away from walls after a couple of over-enthusiastic dive bombs led to bumped heads. The chute collapses down and ties up neatly with the attached strings, which also provide their own source of entertainment. I bought this for about $10 at Wal-Mart.

Update - July 2014: It's been two years since I posted this review, and the chute still gets regular use. Like most toys, the novelty has worn off a bit, and they now play with it around 2 or 3 days a week. (That's just what I witness - of course, they may play with it more.) They were six months when I took the video, and at 2 1/2 years old and about 11 pounds each now, they can still fit inside. They can't stand up, but they can scoot through in a crouch.

My boyfriend purchased this for $5 at the Wal-Mart in Honolulu in June 2009 for our then 2-month-old, 2 lb orange tabby kitten we'd just rescued. He was our first rescue adoption and didn't really know what kind of toys to get him.

I thought he was nuts for buying the kitten such a flimsy and cheap-looking toy and wondered if the kitten would even play with it.

A year and a half later, I eat all of my words, along with a huge scooping of dirty cat litter!

Our kitten absolutely loved this tunnel! He'd crouch on one end of the tunnel, wiggle his orange little butt from side to side and proceed to run and "pounce" on imaginary things in/on the other side of the tunnel, would run through it just for fun, sleep in it, and we enjoyed sticking toys through the top opening & watching him chase after it.

Suffice to say, our "little kitten" blossomed into a 16-lb fat cat a year and a half later and STILL enjoys playing with this. In fact, it's his favorite toy! We also ended up adopting two more kittens along the way who grew to be 10 lbs and 13 lbs each. They enjoy chasing each other through the tunnel, the two male cats love to perch at each entrance and give each other "stare downs" until one gets gutsy & playfully tries to run after the other through the tunnel, and my 16-lb enjoys "hiding" in it when we he's in a playful mood running away from us.

1.5 years, it's still holding up, although it's wrinkled and material on one end of the tunnel is starting to come off its wire support. Overall, though, it's held up great with all of the wear and tear it gets in my multiple cat household, gets used everyday on a constant basis (probably one of the few toys that gets a lot of usage), and it gives my cats great stimulation & exercise.

I bought this because the weekend before - at PetSmart - I'd bought a MUCH smaller version than this crackle tunnel, and I was so impressed with my cats' playfulness of that tiny tunnel, I wanted a BIGGUN!

We have 5 MALE CATS (all neutered, but they don't know that), indoor only, fat, happy, and PLAYFUL during that 2 hours or so they are not passed out on the nearest blanket. When these boys play... they PLAY. Divebombing each other, cornering, sneaking around corners doing that huddle-butt-pounce thing... so I knew getting a bigger tunnel would fit the bill, since they'd already put many fine hours into the small tunnel from PetSmart (that one was only about 10 inches long; this one is almost three FEET long!).

For anyone concerned about the SIZE of your cat? Do not be concerned. Our largest boycat is Hammie - he is 25 pounds, and round in every feature; dude is a blob with paws. He gets into this thing and while he does rub the sides a tad, he DIGS it! No problems getting in and out. The smaller cats (ranging in size from 12 pounds to 20 pounds, then there's 'Hammie'), ZERO problems, they race through this thing, dive bomb it, dive bomb each other... and the opening in the middle, at the top of the tunnel - somehow this tunnel rights itself, so that 'peephole' opening stays at the top! Even while dive-bombing is in process.

We were both sorta stunned to see our 16 year old cat, Zorro, ALSO get into this tunnel. While he does not and never did ever 'play' (he's like Grumpy Cat on Valium, with a mean streak), he actually got in there, purred, and stayed there for awhile... he liked something!?!?!?!

It's easy to set up - just untie the strings and stretch it out, voila. It's NOT meant for a bedroom; keep it in a room where there's noise, cuz it's noisy.

I bought one of these a few months ago, and the cats had a blast with it. I decided to get another one to attach to the first, so I could make them them a longer tunnel. They love to dive-bomb through it, and play hide & seek through the "portholes". Just be aware that they call it a "crackle" chute for a reason. It does make a goodly amount of noise, so I don't even consider placing this in my bedroom, lol. I have a "plain" chute in there, so they don't wake me up at night :o). I would definitely recommend this for cats with a major case of curiosity, or who get bored without something exciting to do.
