Your hamster will be full of fun and just love exploring new things – once they have aclimatised to their area and feel safe enough to come out they will be very inqisitive and nosey, exploring everything and anything that you put in their cage.
They will also have a little gnaw on just about everything too – so always make sure that everything you put in their cage is safe for them – if in doubt, do not put in in their cage.
A Hanging Bridge for Hamsters (shown here) is ideal for your hamster and will keep him (and you) amused for ages.
Roborovski Hamster Toys like these will give very good exercise for your hamster and keep him agile and fit – Roborovskis will climb, swing, hang and generally have a good time on a Hanging Bridge and is one of the number one toys to add to the habitat.
This particular bridge costs under £10 all in from Amazon, so good value for money I think, especially when you consider the amount of fun your hamster will have.
Everyone thinks of the hamster wheel as being a good toy, and it is – without doubt, hamsters love to whizz around in one.
- In fact, the Exercise Wheel is the most important Roborovski Hamster toys to buy first.
They are naturally very fast little creatures, and a running wheel will give them the kind of fast exercise that they would get when running in the wild.
The very best advice I can give anyone, when buying a hamster running wheel, is to consider how noisy the actual wheel is… If it spins and makes a noise, then it’s really going to be a racket when your hamster is it.!
Always choose a silent running wheel that uses ball bearings to give a smooth, quiet spin. As well as that, your hamster will do a lot of his running at night and if you keep the cage in your bedroom and have a noisy wheel, you’re going to be awake a lot..!!
The good thing is, a running wheel like this Silent Spinner is not only well made and quiet but also inexpensive, considering the quality.
It is not made for larger creatures like guinea pigs as it measure 6 1/2″ diameter – howevr, this size is perfect to add to your Roborovski Hamster Toys. They sell for under £15 all in from Amazon so well worth it.
You hamster will love to sniff around and explore anything you put in the cage. If it’s a place to hide they will love it too and you often find them dragging their bedding into a new toy that you had added, especially if it’s enclosed.
There are several of these types of toys available and your hamster will enjoy investigating and climbing all over it.
Watching your hamster have fun with these type of toys is very enjoyable as they seem to love climbing all over them, this Trixie Natural Living Tammo House is one of the largest ‘adventure houses’ and measures 25cm x 30cm x 12cm, so you need a large cage to ensure it fits well.
There are a good range of wooden hamster toys that will keep him amused.
There are far more wooden toys available (shown below), but remember, the more intricate with runs and ladders are normally a bit bigger. So always check the dimensions of each toy and make sure they will fit you cage setup first.
They range between £7 – £18 and I think they are really good value and hamsters love them – as well as play toys they make ideal ‘nibbling posts’ which helps keep their teeth under control.
Ladders are another great toy to add in their cage. Naturally, they will climb and scurry up and down things in the wild and this type of flexable ladder makes the perfect accessory to give them this type of exercise.
Basically, a ladders a ladder.!
But, there are a few that are really good to add to their cage which will give him a bit of a challenge, like the Suspension Bridge Wooden (shown right) – this bridge is flexible and can be changed around to the keep interest and give different challenges each day or week.
This one measures 55.5 cm long x 7 cm wide with a little platform at each end – it can be bent around to make an interesting run or put between two other toys.
I particularly like this toy as you can fix several together to make a run all around the cage – but more than that, it’s so cheap to buy…. at under £7 all in from Amazon it’s well worth considering.
