This is a step harder to prepare than the toy above, but it's worth
it. Take two empty tissue boxes and tape them together at the sides, with the openings looking different directions, so the
ladder won't block the opening to the bottom box.
Variation 1: Take a strip of wood about
3 inches wide and 6 in. in length, and glue smaller strips of wood on it for fottholds.
Variation 2: Take a lond wooden dowel adout 3/8 in. in diameter, and saw it into 3 1/2 in. pieces. Then take two strips
of wood about 1 in. wide and 6 in. in length. In 1 1/2 in. intervals, drill holes exactly as wide as the dowel pieces. The
two sides of the ladder should be exactly symmetrical. Now glue the dowel pieces into the holes, and wait until the glue dries.
Attaching the ladder
With a scissor cut the opening
of the top box so the bottom of the hole is a straight line, as wide as your ladder is. If you have ladder type 1, use Scotch
tape. If you have ladder type 2, saw a diagonal line into the ladder, so you can slip the notches onto the edge of the opening
on the box.
Another really simple toy! Just give your hammy an empty coffee- or cocoa
It is the same thing as Can.
Fix a long bar on top of the hamster's cage. For ex. cut notches
in a strip of wood. Take a can (one of cardboard and foil, not of metal), and cut off the bottom circle with a saw or a scissor.
Poke two holes in the can with a scissor or a drill. Take a piece of rope through the holes, and attach it with knots inside
the can. Make sure the can almost reaches the floor of the cage if you loop the swing over the bar above the cage.
