Default What are your hamsters favorite toys and chews?

Hello, I want to know what your hamsters favorite toys, chews and treats are. I have my Syrians and i'd probably let them try some of what your hamsters like, thanks!

My boy Alex loves toilet paper rolls. He shreds them in one night.

A bit of a random one but my new roborovski LOVES the cup holders from McDonald’s! He loves to climb over it and run through the holes! I’m not sure if this would be big enough for a Syrian, but I just bend the little tabs that are in the holes back to make their home bigger. He also loves running through a Pringles tube that I cut the bottom off!

Henri loves to chew on empty egg cartoons and toilet paper rolls! She also loves her sand bath. I've read that not all syrians like them but Henri uses hers multiple times a day to wash herself and go to the toilet. As for treats, she really likes pumpkin seeds. They're better than sunflower seeds in my opinion as they are lower in fat so you can give more of them

My syrians have all enjoyed tunnels. I got them wicker tunnels from zooplus and the large cardboard ones that are sold for guinea pigs.

Some of them liked apple twigs to chew, whimzees chews went down well. Monkey nuts in their shells, all kinds of seeds and nuts and soaked porridge oats.

They all loved deeeeep fitch substrate under houses with no base and would dig tunnels to sleep, store food and store poos in!!!

A few of them liked sand baths and a couple of them would get really excited about having time out of their cages in their play boxes with wheels, tunnels and food in.

I need another syrian hamster now remembering what fun they are!

My ham is The King of Whimzee dog chews! He loves chewing on them! He also enjoys peanuts and walnuts inside the shell. I like to crack the walnut at the top to let the scent come out. He also likes chewing on his tissue box. He shreds the cardboard and uses it for nesting material.

Whimzees were always a huge hit with all my hams! I’ve yet to own a single ham who didn’t love whimzees.
Sand pits have also been well loved by them. They loved digging (and using them as a litter box!) inside.
As for other chews, it was hit or miss with them. I found that straw toys were usually a favorite, my hams would frequently tear them apart and make a huge mess of their cage lol. They’ve never been a fan of wooden chews- often ignoring them. However, I always have a variety available just in case.

I would personally recommend buying a huge variety and seeing what your hams like best. Every single hamster I’ve liked has been different when it comes to which toys they enjoy most. Best wishes

Favourites seem to change every few weeks. Sometimes Harvey chomps through multiple toilet rolls, then loses interest in them and goes back to his Whimzee. At the moment, any cardboard box he can get inside and destroy from the inside out is his favourite.
