Product Description

Easy to set up, fold, and store.

Packaged in a sturdy, reusable carry bag, this collapsible tunnel sets up quickly and folds easily for convenient storage. Durably constructed of top-quality fabric and built to last, it is sturdy enough to be a permanent and much-loved fixture of the playroom floor . . . but when it’s ready to store, the process couldn’t be easier: Simply press the ends together to collapse the frame and enclose in the compact carry bag until next time.

Great for gross motor skills.

Creeping and crawling through this brightly coloured tunnel is wonderfully beneficial for strengthening trunk and leg muscles. Crawling requires children to use legs and opposite hands simultaneously, a complex process that also benefits coordination and improves with practice. This durable tunnel, recommended by occupational therapists, is the perfect way to build these skills playfully. It can be combined with other activities as part of an obstacle course, or used on its own for the simple joy of reaching the other side: Great for balance, perseverance, and self-esteem, too.

Fab play tunnel. It folds back into the circle flat shape when playing is over with by tying three areas of velcro ties. The caterpillar head is at either end and the eye section is see through so you can see whats happening inside when the door is closed. Bought for my 14 month old son and he absolutely loves crawling back and forth through the tunnel. The cat also likes to "hide" in there... but not for long! Would definitely recommend this product as he has had hours of fun with it.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I am a great fan of Melissa and Doug products.

I think they design products which are durable but more importantly stimulate children's development - gross and fine motor skills and create a spirit of adventure and exploration.

This "big tunnel" is colourful and suitable for inside and outside play.

I had my 5 year old nephew and 2 of his friends occupied for hours this week with this tunnel and the tortoise tent (also from melissa and doug).I think younger children and supervised crawling babies would find this product great fun.

Another major plus for parents this tunnel folds up and fits back in to it's storage bag without a struggle making it easy to store too,

This tunnel is part of a coordinated range too.

This item is slightly smaller than I expected - with a diameter that is wide enough for one child to travel through at a time. It is about the length of a three seater sofa and the caterpillar face that makes the door at each end of the tunnel are attached with small velcro straps. It makes an easy and convenient solution and still makes for easy dismantling.

The tunnel itself is a colourful polyester-esque material with a sprung coil core which allows it to spring open once the velcro holding straps are disengaged. Despite this coil, however, it is still relatively easy to shrink back down to flat and re-engage the velcro fastening straps.

There are only really a couple of issues I found with this tunnel. The first the that it is slightly too narrow to allow two children to pass through at the same time, which can lead to some minor skirmishes within the tunnel if two or more are engaged in fun at the same time. The other issue is that while it comes in a neat plastic packaging that use poppers to allow it to reseal. It would have been somewhat more travel friendly if it came with a mesh or fabric carry bag that would allow you to travel with it, to the beach for example, without having all and sundry see exactly what you were carrying.

The first thing that struck me with the tunnel was how vibrant and bright the colours are. Straight away it caught my little ones eye.

I ordered it for my 18 month old even though the safety guidelines suggest it is suitable for children 3 and up. However, I do think that a 3 year old would be too big for the tunnel and wouldn't enjoy it so much as they wouldn't be able to manoeuvre in it so easily. Obviously, I wouldn't leave them alone while playing in it just in case.

I love the doors on it, it gives us a great opportunity to play peek-a-boo. I also like the see through section through the eye so that I can keep an eye on them while they are playing.

It seems very sturdy and well made as well as being wipe clean, which is always handy. Even better, it folds back up into the small size it was delivered so can be easily stored away when not in use - which not very often to be fair.

Great toy, very well made; I would highly recommend this Bug tunnel.

This play tunnel is well made, easy to set up and easy to take down.

Size wise it is great for small children, 3-6 max, but is actually quite narrow, so not too easy to pass each other if more than one child is playing at a time. It is about the length of your average 3 seater sofa, with a caterpillar eye at each end to allow occupants and parents to see each other, but still allow the doors to the tunnel to be closed.

The material is easy to clean, it seems to be quite tough so should last a while (a challenge in our house!)

It easily springs open in a way which maintains it shape well, but still allows for easy compression and storage back in the clear plastic bag.

Recommended for young children, great addition to any play room or just casual play in the living room, but probably best to keep it indoors.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I ordered this for my niece who is only one and she loves it! I would also imagine much older kids would have great fun playing in it too. It is recommended for 3plus years but younger ones definitely love it too. It is large enough for quite a few kids to play in.
It is a very attractive toy, with bright, bold colours and obviously is shaped like a caterpillar. It is a good size too and is fairly robust but soft at the same time. I love the ease of putting it up and flattening it down; very simple and quick. It also comes in a great bag for storage.
This really is an excellent toy that is well made and it will be great fun for toddlers. Highly recommended.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I liked it, which is why I ordered it. But unfortunately the kids didn't really seem interested! It actually was a bit smaller than I had expected, but otherwise it does exactly what it says on the tin. But my kids were trampolining at the time I unveiled this caterpillar, and they didn't bat an eyelid. The trampoline was of course far more fun. Not even the dog decided to go zooming through it. I'm sorry for the negative tone of the review, because I think it's a lovely thing and just what most kids would/should enjoy. Mine, at 4 and 6, perhaps decided they were too grown up. I think a 2 or 3 year old would love this.
