Dwarf Hamster toys are essential for giving your dwarf hamsters a healthy and happy life. There is a multitude of homemade solutions and toys available to buy that will help prevent boredom and satisfy your dwarf hamster’s natural curiosity.

A Hamster Wheel or Flying Saucer will provide the mainstay of exercise for your hamster and should be supplemented with chews, toys, tunnels and interesting places to hide and explore. Most hamster toys are made from plastic – so treat these with caution when you first introduce it to the cage. Keep a watchful eye on your hamsters to determine if they are chewing and swallowing the plastic. Make sure any toys do not have any sharp or protruding edges that might cause harm. Wooden, Plastic, and Cardboard toys are likely to be chewed to some extent so you will occasionally need to replace them.

Kaytee Super Pet Puzzle Playground

Kaytee Super Pet Puzzle Playground – My most favorite toy for dwarf hamster toys! It is a fully expandable and inter-connectable Jungle Gym for lots of fun and exercise. It is entirely inter-connectable so you can take it apart and reconnect it into a different shape Jungle Gym to keep your hamster getting bored. You can purchase two or three and connect them together to make even bigger Playgrounds. Your dwarf hamsters might even decide to use it as a bed. The playground is made of a durable plastic material that is easy to take apart and clean. To save time you might want just to soak the whole thing in hot water and leave it out to dry before putting it back in the hamster’s cage.

Mini Run-About Exercise Ball

Super Pet Dwarf Hamster Mini Run-About Exercise Ball is a 5-inch hamster ball that is a perfect size for Dwarf Hamsters. Many people make the mistake of buying a generic Hamster ball; however, most of these are too big and designed for Syrian Hamsters.

I firmly believe any small pet rodent needs some out-of-cage time a few times a week to stimulate their sense of exploration and a hamster ball is perfect in allowing this. Make sure there are no predatory animals around when you let your Hamster go for a roam in the ball. Close off any access to a staircase if you are using the ball upstairs.
