As some of the brightest, most fun looking hamster cages around, plastic hamster cages are a great hit with kids! A plastic hamster cage is a cage made predominantly of plastic, usually with lots of tubes, levels, and tunnels.Like every cage, they have their pros and cons.
- Look interesting and exciting, and are usually most appealing to children.
- Provide an interesting habitat for your hamster to live in, with lots of tunnels and levels.
- They are eye catching, and can often be a conversation starter!
- May have poor ventilation, due to the lack of cage bars etc.
- Can often be very difficult to clean, especially tubes, and hard-to-get-to areas.
- They can retain heat easily, so always make sure your pet is never in direct sunlight, or it might suffer from heat stroke.
- It might be difficult to get access to your hamster, as these cages often have small cage doors or lids.
- It is difficult to find plastic hamster cages that are big enough, yet aren’t too expensive.
Remember, your cage size must be a minimum of 360 square inches. No smaller
please! Anyway, here a few plastic hamster cages I recommend:
- The Rotastak Space Command Hamster Cage is a great plastic hamster cage that is often in a sale on online shops. Having owned a Rotastak plastic cage myself, I know they work, though they may be a little fiddly to to assemble at first. My hamster Pip loved his cage, why don’t you take a look?
- The next cage is also a Rotastak and has lots of room and is great for multiple dwarf hamsters, or a very active Syrian hammy! It’s called the Rotastak Adventure Zone, and is basically two cages, made into one.
