Rated 1 out of 5 by et42 Not At All Chew Proof
I bought this cage for my female fancy hamster and, at first, it was great! A perfect size and plenty of things to play on (wheel, tubes, shelves,ect.) but after a week or so of owning it, my hamster escaped for the first time. She had chewed on the tube so much that it cracked and she climbed out and behind the dresser. Another few weeks later, she had chewed on one of red shelves so much that it caved in. This was a potentially dangerous situation for my hamster as if it would've hit her she could have gotten hurt. We continued using the cage with only one shelf as it didn't seem to be a problem for her. Just this morning, I woke to another great hamster escape. This time, she had climbed up the walls of her cage and chewed on one of the blue pieces on top of the cage, used to connect more tubes. After chewing a small peice, she was able to just push the blue attacher up and climb out. Now, if your hamster is more calm, and doesn't escape, this cage could be great. But, if they chew on anything at all, I definitely wouldn't recommend it. This cage has posed many scares and potential dangers.

by Zofia This is definitely worth the money! Although it is too small for anything but a dwarf hamster it is made from good, sturdy plastic, not the cheap kind used in many other cages. Another thing is that the wheel does not fit properly so I didn't bother putting it in. The only reason I am giving it 4 stars is as I said, it is only good for dwarf hamsters, the wheel is no good, and it took awhile to assemble.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cheesehead101 My mice love it!!!
This cage is amazing! It is the perfect size for my four mice. Trixie, Peanut, Desperaux and Theodora all love it. There are a couple things that confused me though. the assembly was sort of difficult, the directions are not very clear on how to put the cage together. The wheel is also shown in the picture as it is functional. In reality, that is a very awkward spot for the wheel, and I suggest moving it to right above the left shelf. Overall, this cage is worth the money.

These cages are the worst of the worst, they
are sold for children not pets and their focus is 'fun looking'
and 'brightly coloured' not on a suitable living area. They are
the most unnatural cage you can buy for a hamster yet they
advertise themselves as the 'most natural' simply because
'the system of tubes helps to mimic a hamsters natural
burrowing system'. While this is true to some extent a hamster
does not spend its entire life in its burrow. They use the burrows
for sleeping, storing food and keeping cool in the hot weather.
At dusk hamsters emurge from their burrows to forage and
explore. They will travel over 9 miles in a night through different
terrains only returning to their burrows at dawn to sleep. Not
only do modular cages prevent this natural behaviour but they
are poorly ventilated, cramped and not big enough for suitable
sized wheels and enrichment.
