A fun way to save money and use your imagination is to make toys at home for your hamster. Remember that nothing should have sharp edges or toxic substances. You also never want to use things that could suffocate your pet (like a plastic bag) to construct a toy. Keep in mind that hamsters love to burrow, nest, and use their boundless energy while playing. So the following are some things you can use to make your own original toys:
Since hamsters love to exercise and explore their surroundings, you can satisfy this need by making mazes using these supplies. So be creative, and have fun! You can use non-toxic glue to connect the ends of the rolls/boxes together. But you should let the finished product dry completely and air out before you give it to your hammy. Also be sure to make the toy big enough so that your hamster can fit through it easily.
Another fun toy for climbing and hiding can be made out of facial tissue boxes with different sized holes cut into the sides. You can glue the boxes together and place them side by side or stack them on top of eachother. The possibilities are endless! You all are always welcome to email me with your different ideas, or perhaps your hamsters' reactions to your ingenious creations.
