Hamsters are very active animals and need a stimulating environment. Rolling toys are perfect for hamsters because they can help them exercise and entertain themselves, but they're not the only ones - far from it! Labyrinths, tunnels, lots and lots of toys for your little furry friend!

Choosing the right hamster toy

Hamsters like to have fun: offer them toys appropriate for them to have fun and thrive. Here are some tips for choosing the right toy for your hamster.

Balls, wheels and slides

Balls should be large enough that the hamster cannot swallow them. Wheels should be stable and solid, with no sharp edges. Slides should be smooth and without sharp edges.

Plastic, wood and metal toys

All can be suitable, if and only if:

  • Plastic toys should be smooth and free of sharp edges.
  • wooden toys must be made of untreated wood
  • Metal toys must be tin or aluminum.

Playing with food? it's possible!

Hamsters also like to play with foodYou can give them seeds, nuts, fruits and vegetables. Seeds should be unsalted and untreated, nuts should be unsalted and unshelled. Fruits and vegetables should be washed and cut into small pieces.

We recommend that you buy several toys to see which ones your pet will enjoy the most. You can find lots of toys in pet stores, toy stores or online.
Don't forget that a toy adapted to the size of your hamster is essential: as for children, toys that are too small can be swallowed and toys that are too big can be dangerous.
Finally, and even if it seems obvious, it is absolutely necessary to make sure that the toys provided to the animal are made of non-toxic and non-abrasive materials.

Toys that make your hamster move

Toys are essential for the well-being of your hamster. They help him to exercise and prevent him from getting bored. Toys should be appropriate for your hamster's size and activity level. More active hamsters will need more stimulation than quieter ones.
