We love this cage! It is nice to not have a cage taking up table space, and it is fun to sit on the floor to watch the hamster explore. The cage took 1 hour or so to assemble, but it is very sturdy and will last a long time. I love that there aren't a million plastic tunnels to disassemble and reassemble to clean. Even the water bottle is the perfect size for small critters. We bought with storage and are glad we did. Truly thoughtfully designed!
Excellent materials - very good looking - need some DIY skills to assemble. I use mine for "rescue" mice - ones the cat brings in alive. Got seven so far - plenty of room. Bit of a hassle to get all seven on one level at the same time for cleaning - but it adds to the fun !!
Excellent quality. The unit fits in with the rest of the furniture without looking out of place. Good value for money. Didn't take long to put up (as comes flatpack). Would definitely recommend
Really like this - it looks good in our lounge and the cage itself is well designed. Our hamster seems very happy. It's very easy to interact with him and get him out for a run around in his ball, and the bottom section is very easy indeed to keep clean. Just a few niggles stopped me giving five stars, which are:
- the water bottle was broken on delivery (part of the dropper mechanism was missing) so we had to buy a replacement; luckily we found one which fitted the holder
- we were missing a couple of screws for assembly in the package, but luckily we had some at home which worked instead
- it's a shame there isn't more wire mesh parts to the cage as hamsters do love to climb round it in my experience, which they can't really do in this cage
- the cage could really do with being larger, say 60-70cm long by 50-60cm wide, to give the hamster more running around space (admittedly our hamster is quite big, and still growing, and may well outgrow the cage, but even so it is on the small side compared with the ideal)
- the top section is really quite tricky to keep clean, because the only access you have is via the door and you can't take the floor part out (as far as I can tell).
But would I buy it again? Probably, unless something larger came onto the market.
Just bought this cage and I LOVE IT! It looks so stylish! It was easy to assemble in about 30mins, but my only concern is I have a Russian white dwarf hamster and he manages to climb up the tube but won't go down.. Has anyone got any advice on what I could do to make it easier for him to go down? Other than that fantastic hammy home! The wheels great, my hamster loves it!!
This cage looks really good. The storage drawer is really handy for all the hamster paraphernalia. Now the Syrian hamster is fully grown I would really like it to be a bit bigger. My only real issue is my hamster (female) choices to wee upstairs in the corner and this means that the wee often shoots out and up the wall!!
Really like this cage. It is very stylish and really simple to maintain. I was a bit concerned that some reviews mentioned that it took a while to build, but I got my sister to do it in about half an hour!! She worked through the instructions and found it quick and easy to construct. Was also slightly concerned that our new hamster would be too small to use the tube, but he was up and down it in no time once he had figured it out. Whilst this isn't the cheapest on the market I do feel that it is made from quality materials and offers a real alternative to standard hamster cage designs, so I would say it is worth spending a little extra. This is one of the easiest cages to keep clean and maintain, it literally is as easy as it demonstrates on the promotional video - now even my son doesn't have to be nagged too much to clean out his hamster! Well done Omlet!
This is the second cage I purchased they are easy to assemble and just as your video shows easy to clean durable and good looking I highly recommend this product
I got this cage for my chubby Syrian hamster, she has no problems getting around even if she is a bit chunky and seems happy in the cage, she doesn't often chew the bars or try to escape. Pros with this cage are ease of cleaning (5 mins to empty base, wipe down with disinfectant and refill) and accessibility to the hamster, no matter where she is in the cage I can easily get her out. Cons are that I can only get plastic water bottles to fit the holder, all the glass brands are too big, and she keeps chewing them. Also the tube being directly in the middle of the cage makes it hard to place toys, would be better at the side. Would of given this 5 stars if the cage hadn't arrived missing screws, with a broken bar and a crack in the plastic upper floor, nothing major and it was easily fixed but this is being marketed as a premium product and I wouldn't expect to encounter these problems.
The product as a whole is very nice looking and we were very pleased with it. now we have had it a while we realise that it's not easy to clean, whereas i mean to take out the top it is very awkward, to clean the plastic which is what needs doing regularly. Also the wheel is very noisy so we will have to look at buying another one i think. The gerbils love it though.
