My gerbils love their exercise balls! I block off the kitchen (so they don’t run on the carpet) and they roll around/run for over an hour! Then when they stop I know they are tired so I put them back in their cage to nap. Gerbils need hours of exercise each day so between the cage wheel, this ball and their tube maze, they are constantly entertained. These balls are so durable, clear and easy to clean with soap and water so they don’t get cloudy.
(Hint: your gerbil will poop they more they eat and run so I keep them in the kitchen floor for easy clean up and rinse the balls after each use.)
Must-Have Accessory for a Hamster
on Oct 13, 2018
Our new hamster loves this. She runs in it and we carry her in it. She crawls from her cage into it so we don't need to reach in and grab her. It's the right size for a regular-size hamster. The 5" one we got at the store was too small. It closes securely. Great for exercise when we can't hold her but can keep an eye on her!
Not for guinea pigs

Maybe it was just our guinea pig but, I put her in and tried to get her to run or walk inside and I showed her how to roll it several times but she just sat there. Not sure if this is true for all guinea pigs but did not work for mine at all! It was a waste of money. Good luck.
Our Hedgie loves it!

Our little pin cushion loves rolling around and getting his exercise in this ball. It keeps him safe and contained while letting him explore. Its also very easy to pop apart to clean because as all pincushion lovers know, they do their business on the run!!!
Great ball great price!

My ball came cracked so chewy immediately sent me another one! The price is amazing and my hamster loves to run all over the house in it!
No exercise balls for guinea pigs

Great for rats and hamsters. Wish someone would make one for guinea pigs. Sucks that there backs break when output them in a exercise ball.
It is alright
on Jan 30, 2018
I got this ball to update my previous 11.5in one. The plastic in the 13in is much lower quality, most of the snaps broke when trying to put the two halves together, the 11.5 in had screws that held the two pieces together. It still holds together, but I am always worried it going to pop open at any minute. I'm not sure if the quality changed because my 11.5in was two years old, I doubt this one will last two years.
Top Pops Off
on Jun 24, 2018
I bought this based on another customer review, which indicated that it was pet secure. Three out of the four times my rat has used it, the top popped off. I keep cats, so this is a no-go situation. I put the top on properly and snuggly. It is still usable, but I have to watch its progress continually. The one I purchased may be defective, so I shall try another one. I'm not convinced.
My hamster loves running around!!!
on Apr 26, 2018
I purchased this because my hamster enjoys being out of her cage when she's awake. I purchase about 2 of these a month because she'll scratch them up pretty good on the inside from just running around. But you should just becareful because they'll begin biting the top and if they bite it too much, the top of the ball can open up and they can get out
Love this thing
