I think the reason they enjoy this particular type is because it is very open inside, easy to move, turn, pancake in and get out of. My boys hate "tight" spaces so these are just perfect for them. To keep mine open, I do a top folding stitch and then fold the fabric once by hand as well. If you need an example, just let me know.
Here is a size comparison of the normal to the large:
Reeses decided to pose for me to show you all what I'm talking about. My mom and I talked about it and we decided we're going to re-enforce the cuff with extra thick batting. Here's some photos.
I think they want bigger ones too. They love sleeping on big pieces of fleece and I think the cozy's for the girls are too small. They can still turn around and such but they like to sprawwwwwwwl. The boys are 15 inches by 17 I think but they even look too small for their big bums. *sigh*
Anyway, the boys really seem to like the extra room and the lighter colors. I think they like the illusion of being covered from "the wild" of their bedroom, but also appriciate being able to see their surroundings and move about as they please. I guess thats what I get for having two snobby little porkchops.

Problem got solved! I know not many of them were made but for yourself and anyone else who might have the same problem, any that would like to send theirs back to get fixed may do so and I'll ship them back free of charge. Or, $10 off next order.
I'll cross post this to my thread in the Guinea Pig Related Products as well.
