Not my fav buy at ur own risk

I'm the reading words type not reading pictures type so when I saw the instructions I knew I was gonna have a hard time. The plastic is so cheap I felt like it was gonna snap and break when I was handling it but after numerous times we got it and it works the way it's supposed to I guess just wish it was better quality but you get what you pay for I guess right. Maybe invest in something better but I just needed it to take my pet home and transfer it so it will do for the time being

Not worth the buy!

Couldn't put it together the directions in the box don't help at all. It just kept falling apart. I can't see how safe it could be for a hamster or other small pet if the blue part keeps sliding down. And theres nothing to lock it in place so not worth it!

Best item for your Hamster

I love this item for when I travel with my hamster and when I clean his cage it’s where I put him.

Excellent transport and “nap” station!

I have a young Syrian hamster and have the OVO unit nearby when I take “Remy” out to play at night. When it’s time to put him back in his tank, I will show him the OVO. He climbs right in, burrows under a little blanket and falls asleep. He doesn’t scratch to get out for the short trip back to his tank, so I believe he’s comfortable with it. Because my preschoolers are involved in animal care, my hope is they can safely use it under my supervision to transport Remy to and from our animal holding area and they can use it with the lid open to “hold” him. It’s too small to use for anything other than a short time and no substitute for a spacious home. It’s easy to open/close and it’s aesthetically pleasing. I also bought one for my niece’s hamster and she loves it as well.

Was missing pieces

I opens the box and the connector pice was broke and one of the blue ends was missing and took a long time to put together

it great for travel only

This is good for travel but it is certainly not a hamster or rat cage at all because they need a lot of space but my hamster live this carrier when I take him I. Trips with me

Not worth it.

I bought this in order to take my Syrian with us when we needed to. He hated it, kept scratching and trying to get out the whole time. I would rather recommend just getting a small cage where you can put a water bowl/ water bottle and food bowl inside with enough space instead of this.

Pretty Nice

Good for traveling with your hamster and as an add on to the cage, but I suggest simply getting a small cage, because when I put my hamster in this he wanted to get out. I still recommend this and would get it again.
