Rated 5 out of 5 by Whitney More of a pentapus :)
This toy is good at taking a beating! My youngest Sushi likes to get in and check all the openings for intruders. I reach in a different door each time and goose her and she shoots her head out to get me. Then I reach in a different door while shes busy and goose her again, over and over. Makes a really fun game! My tiny girl Kiwi goes in there sometimes to snuggle and nap, especially when the space heaters nearby--it makes a perfect hotbox, and she loves it because she's always cold! Omnom doesn't play with it at all unfortunately, except for to wait for one of the girls to come out so he can pounce! Overall a fun toy.

I bought this toy from Petco for about $28 so, getting it from here is a deal! My ferrets love chasing eachother through this and use it to hide from eachother. However, they don't play with it as much as I'd like. They get bored of their toys pretty easily.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Lupus Not Very Impressed
While I was excited when this toy arrived, as soon as I got it out of the box I was very disappointed.
The toy is made very well and extremely cute, just like the picture - HOWEVER, do not be fooled by the image! The octopus is actually quite small. So small, in fact, that even my 6 year old has a hard time going though the "arm" tubes - to the point where he won't try at all and he is not overweight (in fact, he is somewhat skinny and extremely hyperactive). The only one they seem to fit in is the mouth.
The head of the octopus itself is also small, being shorter than my ferrets body is long and has no supports to keep it from collapsing when they jump on it. I fixed that by shoving a cardboard piece in the bottom, but I really think it should have been made with a plastic insert, like Marshall's Pirate Ship and Ark have.
Overall it is very, very cute but I don't see my ferrets playing with it too much, as it is just too hard from them to get in and out of. Very young ferrets or small female ferrets may find it a bit easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Carisa Great toy but....
My two ferrets love this toy. They especially love playing peekaboo. I only wish that the legs were made of an expandable tunnel that can pull outward on each side and keep its tunnel shape. My ferrets love going into the mouth of the octopus but do not really go out of the legs since they are always collapsed. I just stick my hands in each of the legs and the ferrets pop their heads outward. Great toy only it would be better with a shaped tunnel legs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ferretlover My ferrets loved it!
This is soo amzing! I bought this for like $20-25 at a pet store but it's sooo much cheaper here! I give my ferrets floortime so I gave them this and they were all over it!They loved going inside and taking a nap or just playing with it! Overall, this is so cool looking and AMAZING!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by My old nemesis, STAIRS Cute but not fun for ferrets
My ferrets don't show very much interest in this product. It's kind of small for a full grown ferret. They can not easily get in and out of the tunnels, because they don't have much structure to them. If you want to get them a tunnel I would recommend Marshall's Super Thru Way tunnel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Amy LOVE this toy/sleeper!
My ferret absolutely loves her new Octopus! Everytime I come home from work I find her sleeping in it! She is a smaller ferret so she does fit through the legs and I was surprised but she DOES like to go in and out of the holes in them. This thing is HUGE! I'm sure 3 ferrets could fit in the head easily! I also have the monkey hammock and the flower crinkle toy but this is her absolute favorite place to sleep. Don't get me wrong - she likes the hammock and flower but she LOVES her octopus! Ferret.com is very reasonably priced AND I received it in less than a week! =) I will be doing all of my ferret shopping through this site!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Evgenia It is one of the best toys for ferrets! Must have!
I am completely satisfied with this toy. We have a lot of different Marshall toys for our 11 weeks old boy but this Octopus attracts his attention for a long time and he loves to play with a ball inside and he uses the arms as tunnels. I would highly recommend this cute Octo-Play toy for baby ferrets. My boy has a lot of fun with this toy and the price is very pleasant(you will not find the same toy in the pet stores for the less then $ 20) !

My ferrets like to play and sleep in the Octo's body, but the legs kind of collapse and they don't really know what to do with them. Every once and awhile I'll see one in the legs but it is rare, usually one of my smaller ferrets. I only bring it out every so often because they tend to get bored with it easy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ferrets North Good as a sleep sac
My ferrets love to use this as a sleep sac, but have no use for its arm tunnels and simply ignore them. If mine wore out, I would get another but I was disappointed that they were not interested in it as a 'toy' at all. I have spoken to other owners and most of their ferrets also view this as a bed, not a toy.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Ciena OK for when they are little
My ferrets loved this when they were little. Then they got too big to use the arm tunnels. After that one of my boys just started eating the fleece from the arms. Had to toss it.

This is one of my ferrets' favorite toy and bedding ! They can play for hours in the Octo-Play, tunneling and fighting and they love having their nap in it ! Large enough for multiple ferrets. This toy is really great !

Rated 3 out of 5 by Amanda Ferrets love it, but I don't.
My ferrets love it! They love to sleep in it, all cuddled up together. It has not held up through multiple washings well at all. Anything that is made for ferrets should be able to survive the washing machine, but mine did not hold its shape well, got pilly, and faded horribly. The ferrets still like it, even though it's misshapen and looks like it's been washed 100 times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Annik You MUST have this for your furkids !
This is the best toy for your ferret babies ! My ferrets love to sleep in it, have a game of peekaboo and tunnel for hours in the 11 openings. A friend told me that her ferrets love it too and she has the Octo-Play for years so that means its pretty though ! Cute toy that your ferrets will enjoy for the rest of their life !

I have one male ferret, Spazzy Fresh. He loves this octopus. He doesn't play with it however, just sleeps in it for the most part. Everytime I come home I find him inside of this toy. I would recomend this to anyone who has a ferret!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Cathy Ryan MF Octopus
I have ferrets who enjoy this toy. They however, do not see the hazards that come with it. I have run into a few problems with it. My older ferret (8) would go inside and get stuck in the openings in the middle of the eight arms. He was insulinomic and had a Pred Belly. I could not get him out if he tried to go through the arms. Also, I found it difficult to get them out. I have had to resort to gently gathering thier hind legs and sliding my hand above their hips and pulling them out feet first because the hole is not large enough for a hand and ferret to pass through together. The last issue is the safety of the inside of the Octopus. After wear from play and washing the seams which are not enclosed/covered; wear and allow the foam lining to crack off. If consumed this foam could kill a ferret due to blockage and/or infection. Stick with the alligator, fish or elephant.
