Default Re: Good cage for my 7 year old niece?

Pets at home usually sell the hamster heaven or hamster sky (same cage). It’s a good starter cage for a Syrian while they’re being tamed and not a bad cage as a main cage for life - most hamsters will be happy living in it and it’s a safe cage for a beginner (not too tall). Providing the penthouse and external tubes aren’t used and they start with a blank cage and just use one shelf. Of the two the Sky is probably better as it has less junk to remove lol!

I see your point about it costing almost as much as the Savic plaza. It’s a shame Zooplus don’t have it as they used to sell it for 50. Incidentally I think it’s more the pandemic that has affected the cages being in stock, rather than just Brexit , as the Savic cages are made in Europe too. Maybe a bit of both.

There is also this 100cm tank style cage. Maxi duna multy. It has gone up in price unfortunately during this pandemic - it used to be 80 to 90. However Amazon have a nearly new on listed for less as well.

The plaza is available on Amazon but at a higher price. 90 to 100. There’s also this. Expensive!

To be honest, if it’s for your neice I would get the Hamster Sky. I think it will be more manageable and allow more interaction and easier to set up safely. Even if it does cost almost the same as the Savic plaza. For example I have the Savic plaza and I also have the Savic Mickey 2XL (which is the same as the hamster heaven but mouse bar spacing) and it cost more than the Plaza! But sometimes it’s the right cage for a hamster. Our last Syrian preferred it to the Plaza.
