Hamsters love having toys in their enclosures. They love climbing on ropes, burrowing into toy houses, or nibbling on gnaw-toys. Most of them enjoy going walkabout in a hamster exercise ball too.
Your hamster's life will be enriched by toys, whether home-made or bought from a store
All hamster species like toys, but they are especially important for those that live alone, like Syrian hamsters. Since these don’t have companions to play with, they rely more on their owners - and toys - for entertainment.
