Default imac YoYo cage review

unfortuately, my mum packed the cage up in the garage before i could take pics for the review! when we get it out to sell, i'll add pics. Anyway, i thought the review would still be of use even without pics.

Photo from the website:

The one shown is th yoyo plus. the basic yoyo comes without the stuff inside! It costs around 19.99

The website gives it a measurement of 54X39X27CM, but this seems to be the size around the middle of the cage, which is significantly larger than the actual floor space. The sides slope inwards a lot more than they appear to on the picture.

The cage is a lot smaller than a savic rody, gabber lux or ferplast duna. I would say it is in line with the savic spelos on size, yet manages to be a worse cage than the spelos!

cons:
- it is too small for anything other than a travelcage or a dwarf in an emergency until you could buy a new cage!
- There is no water bottle or anywhere to attach a water bottle! you have to make your own stand. velcro isn't an option because the sides slope far too much.
- The wheel is completely useless. it's about the size of the small silent spinner and the running edge slopes so the hamster slides out! it doesn't turn well either.
- the plastic level is too slippy for dwarfs and they can't get any grip.

pros:
- it doesn't have bars for the hamster to chew on.
- could be used as a washing up bowl

overall: completely useless other than in an emergency. i give the imac yoyo one star out of 5 (only because it's better than letting the hamster wander free!)

what are those round blue things on the lid? Could they be used to add tubing?

yes, you can add tubing, but the tubes are weird and cost about 3 for 2 inches!

A very disappointing cage given it is the same manufacturer that makes the pretty decent (IMO) Fantasy cage.
