Default Would these be safe for a hamster to chew on?

I bought these recently from amazon, would these be safe to use?

She has already chewed the house but not given her any of the wooden chews yet

As far as I am aware they are safe, Luna has things like that. The only one I am not sure of is the love heart. A good tip if they don't chew on the balls is put a treat inside, but be aware that they get demolished pretty quickly.

Hey, not sure about the toys on top, did you buy them? As for the ones below, houses like that are seen as really dangerous here in germany for the following reasons:

- They often have far too small entrances (like in this image)
- They are often made with staples that can stick out of the sides and hurt the hamster, or if he/she chews and reaches a staple, it can injure them
- Resin can come out of the wood and, if a hamster chews it, it can stick to the inside of its pouch (I've seen resin in one of the ones I had back when I didn't know about it, but luckily, my hamster didn't chew it)
Finally, for the same reason as why pine bedding is dangerous (and because itís a house and they sleep in it, they get exposed to it a lot)

I'd recommend getting cork logs, I've had quite a few hamsters who have really enjoyed chewing them, plus they are far more natural Have a great day!

Yep they should be fine, just like with any new toy monitor as they all have potential to be a hazard. The balls usually get ignored so like LunaTheHamster1 said hide food inside
