Default Are coconut rope toys safe?

I'm spending even more money I don't have on Marti's new toys and found some really nice looking ones, they are said to be made of coconut rope. Does anyone know whether it is safe?
From one point of view it's natural materials but it's also a rope, so I don't know...

Beeztees Coconut Rope play pole, 10 x 10 x 16.5 | Horze

Also is this one safe, not sure what it's made of?

Finally, I found a cat's toy made of sisal and don't know whether it fits hammies or not (the picture's attached). Help?

Thank you so much in advance!!!

The cat toy wouldn't be safe as it has felt which won't be digested.Anything you let your hamster have must be either chew proof or digestible.Because of the unspecified materials in the other products,they cannot be considered safe and should never be used

If the first one is made of coconut fibre it should be ok, the second one looks like some grass balls I have but it doesn't actually say what it's made of so not sure & I don't really see that a ham would do anything with a sisal mouse tbh & you would have to remove the felt bits.
If you want to be totally safe you could easily make your own version of the first one, a bit of cardboard for the base, a cardboard tube fixed with non toxic glue, cover it in sisal string & attach one of the willow balls you can buy from lots of places.
