That sounds like a plan . Zooplus don’t have a massive amount of cage accessories but wheels would be a first. The trixie steps/shelf are good. I personally like the blue Savic rat tunnel. Rat Sputniks. Some of my favourite cage accessories from other stores are- small hyacinth tunnel (Amazon). Large cork log (Rodipet). Labyrinth house (Rodipet it the trixie Leif labyrinth on Amazon and maybe at zooplus). Ferplast sin guinea pig house (amazon and porton aqua pet).

I will buy small tunnels from rosewood, cork log do I have. The guinea pig house, is that in wood or plastic?

The first one definitely not, those really aren’t suitable for hamsters & are just an accident waiting to happen.
The second one, the bridge shuld be fine.
The third one is ok. Maybe better for a dwarf ham.
Fourth one, bendy bridges are really useful so I always have plenty of those around ready to use when I need one.
The fifth one, the steps are fine too.
The shelf & cork tunnel are good.
The corner house is ok too, I prefer to have houses with a top that lifts off if you can get them, makes spot cleaning or just checking inside without disturbing nests too much a lot easier. Any wooden house is best painted with plastikote or other non toxic paint (what you can get may depend on where you are) as they often get peed on & that can’t be cleaned.

What Cypher said With the rough Bark wood items you also need to check for nails. Personally I find a lot of those barkwood items not well made and break but the shelf and steps are good, as are bendy bridges. This is the Ferplast Sin Guinea pig house. It comes flatpack and fits together like a jigsaw (so the roof lifts off - although the last one I had the roof was very stiff and needed sanding to make it fit).

This Trixie house has a lift off roof and it's very popular. Zooplus used to sell it but don't seem to at the moment. It's good for a dwarf hamster. For a Syrian you need to knock out the middle compartment to make the centre room bigger

I have the Leif house to our oldest dwarf, the only minus is that he pees in it

Agree with what has already been said, I wouldn't recommend using anything like the first link and I have the 3rd one, but I removed the bells off it, so no little paws can get caught in the metal hooks.

All the other items look fine.

With the leif house, I managed to knock the base off and removed any nails, you just have to go slowly at it, tap gently. Works much better without the base and no pee stained floors.
