Hey :)
Some people use the bath tub (dry of course) as a play pen.
Heres a thread somebody done, :) I dont advise those barred playpens, hamsters learn to escape in minutes, somebody taped cardboard onto the panels to make it escape proof!

I myself simply made a pen out of cardboard panels because i found two boxes with the same size panels, so i cut the panels out, and then i tied them together with string so it means i can easily fold it in and out :D

Theres a 'Ball Pit' at the Early Learning Centre i think it is some people use its very big :D
Or theres this Buy Chad Valley Pink Sand and Water Pit at Argos.co.uk - Your Online Shop for Pools and water games. (http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/3650983/Trail/searchtext%3ESAND+PIT.htm)

When I was little, we used a kiddie pool similar to the one Fidget linked.
But the edges are a little low so you have to be careful with tall toys near the side.

We had also purchased a commercial wire play pen, but it came apart easy and was pretty small compared to the pool.

I totally advise using the bath tub, its simple, safe, when you put a huge towel in it you can wash the towel later and you can put bunch of stuff in there for the hamster:)
