Okay, you've got me on this one. I'm trying to work out what is in the tray down the bottom. Is it water? Intrigued.

They kind of look like dryer vents...is that what they are? Super cool idea too!

Yes it's water in the tray with a little bit of bubble mixture as the children were playing with bubbles that day.

Dryer vents - clever suggestion! But no.

Do they close? I think they look a bit like the tunnels I have seen for small animals (like the tunnels you get for kids to play in only scaled down to rabbit size)?

Also it looks like so much fun!

They look like flexible conduit of some sort painted purple.

I'm impressed with your suggestions. And rm (Rainbow Mum) is correct!!! These are rippled tunnels for hamsters. They can be squeezed small and tight or pulled long and loose.

They also bend - the children discovered they are great for collecting water from taps instead of using a bottle when the tubes are bent into a U-shape.

I got each one in a local supermarket in a sale. Normally they cost £1 each but were reduced to £0.12!

Yay! :)
