Hello there,

So that we can offer the most relevant and suitable advice we'll need to know what cage your hamster has and if you have any photos of the layout, that would be very helpful too.

Your cage would only equal up to around 285 sq in which is unfortunately a bit on the small side. An easy fix would be to go out and purchase a 40 gallon breeder tank as this would be a good size, especially for a robo. Plus, this will allow you to fit many more toys and much deeper bedding

I'll try and save up for a bigger tank but by only getting 5 pound a week it may take awhile :"(

It's alright! Your hamster will be okay until you're able to afford a bigger home, the important thing is that you care and are willing to make changes when you see they're needed There are lots of easy ways to earn money in a relatively short period of time. For example, you could walk a friend/neighbor's dogs. You could also offer to petsit, cut a neighbor's lawn, or sell old things that you don't need anymore! Another cheaper option for a cage would be a bin. I'm not sure where in the world you're located but there are many large bins available for relatively low prices! Why not check around at local stores? Or you could even see if somewhere like Craigslist/gumtree have listings for used tanks or large bins

It's hard to see from the picture but it seems like she has a lot of toys to play with Swapping them around occasionally for her will keep her busy exploring. If you don't have one already, she'd really enjoy a sandbath I'm not sure how deep the base is but you could put deeper substrate for her to burrow through too. Something my hamsters like is when I hide sunflower seeds and treats in their substrate and they can dig around to find it.

As Drago mentioned, her cage is a bit small. A cage like the duna multy or a bin cage/tank that's around 70 x 40cm should plenty of space for a robo (the new minimum is 70x40cm for a dwarf hamster or 80x50cm for a Syrian).
