Oh jeez I didn't even see that people had posted on here!
Yes, it's all safe, gerbils should always be supervised when in the playground (as it says in the instructions). For example, you wouldn't let your gerbils have a plastic house in their tank, because the plastic can be ingested and cause internal problems, but it's fine to use a plastic house in a playpen because they're under supervision

Very nice and all a great creation but is all of this stuff truely safe. it for 1 has newspaper (ink!!!) and paint paint but im realy worried about the tape you used could you assure me its safe so i can build 1 cuase it lokks awsome.
newspapers are recycled, the ink is non-toxic, the paint is non-toxic (if u read), they won't get to the tape!!!

my gerbils are fine unsupervised in fact thats there house. i built it into a big box that i made so its impossible for them to get out
maybe, but so you know, gerbils are master excape artists. it'll never be impossible for a gerbil to get out of cardboard... trust me. i left my gerbils in an unsupervised playpen with tons of cardboard... i come upstairs about 10-20 minutes later, they were out and there to greet me! i had in thick cardboard to begin with... so watch it!

lol there is no way they can chew through 5/8 wood and of course it has a top
Don't challenge them! lol
As a side-note, I noticed that gerbils can generally chew through anything given an edge to start with and enough time. I've seen two very thick wooden things (a tunnel and a house) that have enormous holes that used to be small, lol.
You use PVA non-toxic childrens glue the sort Nurseries and, Schools use, to stick the sand on and, you make it for a separate tank so it can stay in the tank then, move the Gerbils over, for a regular play each day.
yes, but you're still talking about moving de gerbies.. so that means I can't put it in their regular tank?? I will start making it today.. (this one I will make seperatly from the tank, and if I like it, I will make another one for in the tank ;D
