You could turn the last one upside down and it could be some sort of ramp. He can do hammie daredevil tricks then lol.
Very creative and alot cheaper than ready made toys :)

What an awesome idea! I may have to steal it;)

For the record, I think that last toy looks an awful lot like one of the shapes in Tetris:)

Hope
07-12-2010, 05:04 AM
Great idea Wofunny - has Smudge taken anymore interest in them yet?

wofunny
07-12-2010, 05:08 AM
not really! i put a piece of sweet-corn in each of the wheels and they are gone but other than that nope :(

i will see if my new one likes them when we get it :)

Very impressive! I'm guessin you didn't play jenga that much?

wofunny
08-07-2010, 02:50 PM

hehe...looks a bit like a military camp to me :-)

Humphrey Furball
08-08-2010, 04:53 AM
LOL, go Smokey! And the spacing between the tyres is exactly hamster-step-sized! Very impressive (better than some shop toys I have seen!!!); maybe you should start a business, selling digging towers and climbing walls?:mrgreen:

LiamScott95
08-08-2010, 07:18 AM
Ive got some spare Jenga and I want to do that too but what glue did you use for them? I'm worried about using a particular glue then my hamsters getting ill etc?

wofunny
08-08-2010, 07:23 AM
I use a glue gun, and the glue sticks that I use to put in the gun are non toxic, I get them from a local craft shop :)

Looks good Mark!! Love the stack of jenga - very cool :-)

Love the description of the last one, since the first time you came with Jenga toys you had a ''spare one that does not fit any description'' as well hehe!

That's a job well done, let us know how your new hammy reacts to it when he/she is home!

tive
08-31-2010, 03:57 PM
This is a great idea. So any non-toxic glue will do? I suppose I need one that will really hold...

wofunny
09-11-2010, 05:12 AM
:D my friend just got back from a car boot sale, and got me some Jenga :D

Any ideas for what to make? my brain has gone blank :/

Humphrey Furball
09-11-2010, 05:20 AM
Could you make a sort of bendy rope-bridge, with 2 lengths of string, and some rungs made of 2 jenga blocks glued together, with the string sandwiched between them near each end? don't know about the weight of jenga blocks tho; would string hold several of them?? Will try to think of other options :)

wofunny
09-11-2010, 05:34 AM
good idea! but i dont think anyone will use it... :( thanks anyway!

Hope
09-12-2010, 03:24 AM
WHat about a sprial staircase type thing on a rope to hang from the cage for them to chew?

wofunny
09-12-2010, 03:26 AM
i think i might soak a few of them with a juice,, like a chew toy?

but i still dont know what to do with the rest!! :/

Hope
09-12-2010, 03:29 AM
How about making a little hut or house with them??

mangoandmimi
09-12-2010, 04:49 AM
thats what i was gonna say :) i made a house out of lolly sticks you could do the same with jenga :)

wofunny
10-02-2010, 06:26 AM
I have made a new toy out of jenga, and some other stuff! for Pip and Squeek.

i felt so stupid drilling a hole in a dog biscuit... :lol:

Blimey Mark!! Thats crazy - bet the boys are loving it :D

Humphrey Furball
10-27-2010, 11:18 AM
OMG it's like one of those optical illusion things where there seems to be impossible stairs where you go down them and end up at the top!!! Hamster fun-house :mrgreen:

Poodle
10-31-2010, 12:31 PM
Home Bargins have glue guns for 1.99 for anyone that needs one ;) I got one today and ran out of sticks when I only had 1 bit left to do! Made a bridge thing with some stairs :D

SnickersTheFirst
10-31-2010, 01:25 PM
Well, that looks fun! I'd love to be a hammy right now! :D haha

Poodle
11-02-2010, 02:38 PM
Here is 2 I made (and my rather jealous dog!)

Big one is for 3 of the gerbils because they only have a tank not a tank with a topper and the small one is for Phoebe :D Need another box of jenga then I'll make more for her..

You could make a hamster palace!!! That looks so cool poodle! no wonder your dog is jealous :)

wofunny
12-13-2010, 12:46 PM
I made this in the end... Stella loves it :D

SnickersTheFirst
12-13-2010, 12:47 PM
Ahhh, it looks great. Stella loves it too, I see! Looks like a lookout tower or a castle. :D

Is there any other glue I could use that is strong enough? I don't have a glue gun, would pva work?

wofunny
12-13-2010, 12:49 PM
I haven't tried PVA with any jenga, but i dont see why it wouldn't work! :D

But it might be a lot harder as you would have to wait for each part of what ever you are making to dry :/

SnickersTheFirst
12-13-2010, 12:55 PM
Yeah that's what I was worrying about! Oh well It's worth a go, if I can find the jenga that is. :mad:

Nappo
12-14-2010, 10:13 AM
Hey,

wow,that's amazing and such a great,creative idea! Jenga is this tower game,right? I think I will buy some of them and try it too xD I love them!

I absolutely LOVE the stack of blocks!! It's just what I would want to make for Sen. Just something totally wacky, and lots to explore. I think the possibilities with it for exploration are almost endless! Fantastic!! *claps*

I love all of your creations. I may have to purchase a glue gun and get to work on some new activities for my Harley.
All your hamsters look so happy and content with their new toys :-D

I also got a box of similar to these called towering blocks,but dont have writing on and came from my local charity shop. Ive spent plenty of time building and unbuilding, but keep putting them back in the box as i dont know what glue to use on them. I found another boxful yesterday but didnt get them as they were just made of plastic!

Sterluv
01-01-2012, 10:23 PM
