Rated 5 out of 5 by RJINATL Nice toy for the cats!
This product had some great reviews on various websites. Thought I would give it a try. The cats love running through it, chasing each other, pouncing each other as they come through it. They have enjoyed this item a LOT! Only down side, in middle of night, they start to play and this makes loud crackling sounds. If you are a light sleeper, beware or keep it in some other room. Overall, they play with it every day, so I would definitely recommend it.

I have 8 cats. I bought this about 3 weeks ago plus a cube to attach it to. Well my cats have enjoyed it SO much that I ended up going and getting another one. This is one of the best products I think was ever invented.
Rated 5 out of 5 by TexMel Best toy ever!
Your cat (or cats) will have a ball with this thing--and so will you watching them. My new younger indoor cat has gotten our older cat involved in taking turns chasing each other through the chute. But they enjoy it individually too--especially if I throw a catnip mouse or other toy inside to pique their curiosity. It is loud, as others have noted, but that's part of the fun! My older cat was a bit leery of it because of that, but that didn't last long.
I do put it in the closet at night so there won't be any loud kitty parties going on in the middle of the night. Ha! I just heard one of them run through it as I write this. Money well spent!

I have SEVERAL indoor cats. This is by far their favorite toy. The only problem I see is that you can only put 2 of them together at one time. I wish they would put ties on Both ends. The cats would really like it if it could be longer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rebgirl More fun than you can imagine!
We bought one of these on sale for $5 and later realized it was the most fun "we" ever had on five-bucks! I had to go back to the store and buy 2 more!
We put them together in different ways for our cats to play, so they run in and out, over and around. Throw in a little toy, such as the Chickadee Chirping Cat Toy for extra fun!
This was a gift to our cats, but I think, in the end, we have just as much fun while watching their silliness!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jaylala My cat absolutely loves the crackle chute. It's pretty loud, but that was expected and doesn't bother me. He likes to randomly zoom through the chute and he loves poking his head out the hole in the middle. I would recommend this to any other cat owners :)
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nylahtram Better than Average
My cat is an American Shorthair Tortie who is not easily intimidated. She loves plastic bags, so to reduce the clutter of having them strewn around the house, I thought the Crackle Chute would be a great alternative. The problem is the Chute makes a considerably loud CRACKLE sound. I've had it for a few weeks and she is just starting to accept the sound, and enjoys racing through it. I still think the crackle sound could be softer and less intimidating to begin with. However, in general, it has turned out to be a better than average cat toy.
Rated 5 out of 5 by sky57ny great cat toy!!!
my kitten uses this every day, she loves the noise it makes!! shes getting her share of
exercise for sure.
Rated 4 out of 5 by mygirliz alittle noisy
But my cats love it. They play in it multiple times a day, good purchase for the price!
Rated 2 out of 5 by petloverpgk Scared my kitten; too small for my cat.
He tried to play with it; however, the sound scares my kitten. My grown cat is too large to run through it easily. I am going to buy one that doesn't make so much noise and is larger.
Rated 5 out of 5 by debratx1234 Kitties love it!
This item is exactly as expected. All my kitties, big, little, young and old took an interest.
Rated 4 out of 5 by ThaShiznit1986 My cat shoots through it at times...
My cat hasn't totally taken to this, yet, but he does shoot through it every now and then. I think he's still getting warmed up to it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Chanel1 I got this not sure my cat would like it because of the sound but she absolutely loves it.

My kittens adore this crackle chute. Some times one will be sticking his head out the middle opening, and kittens will be in both ends of the chute. They chase each other through it, and their mother joins in. It is very sturdy. It does not collapse, even when a kitten jumps on it. It is an excellent value. I puit toys inside it, and the kittens love to pick one up as they go through.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Squashbug1 Fun For All
Our cats are really enjoying their SmartyKat Crackle Chute. They are so entertaining to watch. The first day they had it, they chased each other through it for most of the evening. This is a favorite game toy for sure.
Rated 5 out of 5 by SavyGranny This is the third one of these toys that I have purchased. The first one, 8 yrs. old, finally succumbed to the antics of my furry family. This one I purchased for my "grand kittens" and they are very busy enjoying it. It keeps them from pulling the toilet paper down and shredding it!
Rated 5 out of 5 by redheama Miniature Playground for your kitty
My kitten absolutely loves this toy. It's her favorite toy. She slides through it and moves it around when she does so that it's like she's sliding down a slide. She has lots of toys and scratchers but this is by far her favorite toy of all, she can't go past it without running through it. Best toy for kittens!
Rated 5 out of 5 by PPK0716 Nice little product
My older cats (two 1 year olds and a 2 year old) didn't really like this product. However, my 7 week old kitten did. He loves to run through it and scare the other cats when they pass by! I really recommend this if you have kittens, and if you have active older cats.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Catsanddogslover Great for cats
The SmartyKat Crackle Chute is wonderful! Our kitten loves running through it and also just taking a rest in it. Even our 8 year old cat likes to run through it once in awhile.
Rated 5 out of 5 by dogwonder Perfect
Just got this for a 1 yr old big kitten and was hoping it would be big enough (tall cat)... not an issue at all.
Tigger was inlove with it instantly - whereas he doesn't really care for the crackle ladybug.
Pro's: peek hole in middle, long tube, stays open - (unlike the ladybug). Material seems durable and stronger than some of the cubes or triangle-like ones that were nearby. Crinkle sound is also tamer than the lady bug. Ties on one end, means you could tie several together. Great value.
Cons: None so far.
I'm looking to buy a few more.
Rated 5 out of 5 by blessed714 Fun for my cats
I bought this product for my three cats for Christmas this year, plus a cube for them to run through. They love it so much and are kept entertained for hours. I highly recommend this product.
Rated 5 out of 5 Tunnel of Fun
"Santa" left this under the tree for our 3 cats to play with and within an hour of unwrapping the "crackle" noise began. If you prefer a quiet household, steer clear. We have to lock it in a room away from them when we go to bed. Great product for the price.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ManahattanGurl Best Tunnel, and under $8 too!
This is probably the best $8 I've ever spent on a cat toy. My 3-yr old, playful ten-pound cat LOVES this tunnel, try dangling a toy on the other side and your cat will go nuts! Or try tapping the material when he/she is inside. Really good solo toy too, as he spends lots of time scurrying through the tunnel and amusing himself. Will accomodate a cat quite a bit larger than 10-pounds, but if you have a 20-pound cat it may be difficult. Note that there was one in the photo that was pink, but it was the burgundy wine color one that arrived if that matters to you. Folds up small for those small NYC apartments! at this price, I may buy another and cut holes in it and poke a spoon in and out to play, while the other one will not get cut up.

great adventureous toy for puppies
Rated 3 out of 5 by Printereater No reaction from the cat yet
I've had it for about a week now and she has gotten over her fear of it, but has not ventured inside. I may have to take away one of her other toys to encourage her, like the paper bags that she loves, but are super ugly. This product was supposed to replace them.
Rated 4 out of 5 by JLJo Dood Loves It!
My little 3 year old loves to ambush his brother by hiding around a corner, under paper or behind a floor plant then he jumps out at him as he unsuspectingly walks by. Dood will pick up the paper with his mouth then goes under it to hide and/or ambush his brother...he's so funny!! I got tired of packing paper or grocery bags laying around the floor so I got this tube and Doodles loves it. The tube is plastic and lined with paper so it makes the crackle noise and its plenty long for ambushing or just hiding out. It was a bit more narrow that I expected but he fits inside with room to spare so the tube is a keeper.
Rated 5 out of 5 by pixiekat They love it! (Well.. most of them ^-^)
I have 5 cats, three of them are 4 years old and the other two are around 9 years old. The three younger ones LOVE to play with it, especially my little girl who is much smaller than my four boys. She loves to hide in the tunnel and shoot out one end to scare her brothers when they aren't paying attention. She also loves to sleep in it. They all love to store their various toys in it as well as other random objects. I emptied it out once and found 5 socks, 3 toys, and a half-used toilet paper roll hidden in there.
The only issue I had with it is that my oldest cats don't care for it too much. I don't think they like the noise it makes. But all in all, it's a good product and worth buying.
Rated 5 out of 5 Collapsible Tunnel
My kitten loves this toy! Running back and forth and through the side hole which most of the time is on top of the tunnel. I also have a young puppy and when she needs a quick escape from my puppy's friendly, but sometimes a little rough play for a kitten, she will hop in there to escape and then can trick my puppy which side she will run out from. The quality is great with this AWESOME price. When you think how much pet stores ask for something very similar, this is a GREAT bargain!
Rated 5 out of 5 by ProudOfCats My cats love this product
My cats play with this for hours. They run through the tunnel. They hide from each other in the tunnel.
They hide their toys in the tunnel. Well worth the cost.
Rated 3 out of 5 by ELOVEnAWE well made but LOUD
This is quality made and good value for the price. Mine also has a peephole half-way thru the tunnel that the cats like. The only problem with it is the noise. Although my cats do like to play w/plastic bags, the noise this thing makes when they step on it is loud. It scares them mostly, and my cats are pretty adventureous. We've had it for two weeks, I'm hoping they warm up to it. They seem to be curious of it, but more than anything they play w/the strings attached to the end of it that you use to tie it up when it's being stored.
