This weekend with the kids i am going to make hamilton a playpen. He doesnt have the biggest cage so i do try and get him out in his ball a few times a day and he does have lots of toys in his cage but hes not tame enough yet for the children to hold so i was thinking of making him a playpen this weekend so he doesnt just get bored of the toys in his cage and the ball.

What would you suggest would be best to use - cardboard box? plastic box?

Any particular size?

Hes got lots of chewy toys and toilet rolls in his cage and i was thinking of getting him a seesaw for his playpen - what else could i add to it or even get the kids to make?

What would you suggest laying at the bottem of the playpen? hes only going to be using it for a while each day so would you suggest woodshavings or something else?

Many thanks xx

My hamster loves cardboard boxes. You could put lots of cardboard boxes in his playpen, cut holes and attach tubes to them :) They're free and to a hamster just as good as a bought toy! At the moment Wiggle's got a cup a soup box, he's chewed holes in it and loves climbing inside and on top of it :D

I'm not sure about the layering...
