I would wonder about the colored paper and the ink used on it. This is why colored magazines should not be used for rabbits (for play or shredded for litter). Best to stick with plain (uncolored) cardboard.

The main problem with cardboard is if it's a photo quality it's usually on plastic--scenic shot on apple boxes and such that look painted on are made with food coloring and are safe. I'd contact the company you received it from and chase back the process of how it was colored--if it's a decal rather than a printed picture it may not be safe--food coloring good, plastic pic bad!

A regular cardboard box with holes you cut yourself will be cheaper and safer I'd say, and your rabbit really won't care if it looks like a cute little house or not. If you wanna invest in a chewable hideout, I recommend a grass house like on the picture attached. More expensive but would last longer as well and bunny can do whatever he wants with it (sleep in there, jump on it, eat it, run through it...)
