    Hello and welcome to this wonderfully addictive forum...

    The cage looks too small imo...
    The toy is great although you have to be careful with those as some hamsters can get stuck in them (my first hammie, Gizmo got stuck in his and we had to cut him out)
    What type of hammie was it going to be for? Gizmo was a syrian

    That cage is a bit too small in my opinion, plus you would have to put plexi glass or tiles on those wire bars to prevent any bleeding feet, the wires can be very dangerous to hammies. I recommend the Savic Cambridge, Hamster Heaven, or Ferplast Multi. IMAC Fantasy is good too, and looks nice to boot!

    The toy is alright, personally I would only use it for dwarf hamsters though as the holes are very small.

    I think too small aswel. Get as big a cage as you can afford, look on ebay for good bargains!

    Hi Gracieee, that cage is not suitable but for that price you could get a Savic Cambridge off Ebay, they aren't always listed as a Savic Cambridge but the cage looks like this

    The wooden log toy can be a bit dangerous as hamsters can get themselves stuck in them.

    Yes I agree that the savic cambridge is a great cage... I couldn't afford it when I got mine but there are some bargains on ebay! My friend got one yesterday for 25 pounds :D

    In my opinion you should get the biggest possible cage you can get... or you will regret it later when you can't fit any toys in it D:

    Do you know what type of hamster you're getting and have u had them before?

    It's actually quite a bit smaller than the cambridge... would probably be ok for mice and dwarf hamsters but its a bit too small for a syrian really. My advice would be to get the savic cambridge, you won't regret it as its a really nice big cage :D

    Also the wire platform would be dangerous for a hamster i think, so you'd need to cover it with something :)

    Well... my syrian lives in this:

    Peggy Metro Hamster Cage by Savic-Cages and stands-Pets at Home: Buy Pet Supplies from our Online UK Pet Shop

    which is the same cage, but with tubes added. In my opinion it is too small for a syrian, so I have extended mine by adding a rotastak pod:

    [​IMG]

    and I'm also going to make a bin cage to connect to it to give him more space.

    But I don't think the peggy cage is big enough on its own without anything added, as soon as u put a wheel in it and a toy theres no room in it at all! If I could go back in time I would have got the cambridge as the one I got is really much too small for a syrian. Is there any reason why you don't want to get the cambridge, is it the cost or the size of it that worries you? :)
