My hedgehog Jazz prefers this wheel and the other girls like it as well. It is noisy, especially if your pet is a maniac when it comes to running. Truthfully, Jazz came with the wheel when I bought her from a coworker but I wanted to leave a review on here anyhow. The noise is my white noise now. Helps me sleep. If you have trouble sleeping I dont recommend having a nocturnal pet in your bedroom at night. Especially if you work. This wheel is safe. If you want a silent wheel Carolina storm wheels are quiet and safe for heavier pets such as hedgehogs. I'd order an extra one of these (I have 4 hedgies now) if I knew I'd get it in a different color seeing how I already have a blue one.
Hedgie loves this

We have a hedgehog that's about 5 months old and loves this wheel. Only flaw is it gets covered in poop so have to clean it weekly but it's her favorite thing and she will ride for hours. It does make some noise so i wouddn't put it in your room.
It’s not silent...

I gave this four stars because the label of this wheel is the “silent spinner.” Let me tell you, it’s not silent, at all. It rattles because the gap between the stand and the wheel itself slam against each other.
I can’t sleep because it’s so loud. But, maybe I got a bad wheel.
A bit noisy, works good though

This wheel is good, it is safe for your pets, and there will be no risk of tails or toes getting caught. Although it does wobble and make kind of like banging noises, it is not silent at all and a bit annoying.
GREAT FOR HEDGEHOGS!

This wheel is relatively quiet and works great for my hedgehog. Sometimes it is hard to find wheels that are the right size and don't have slits and things that hedgie nails get caught on. This one is great and chewy offers it at a really nice price
Good potential but..

I bought this wheel for our Syrian hamster but it is not properly balanced so it gradually moves across the cage until it gets stuck. Being off balance also makes it noisy. Based on other reviews not having this issue I suspect it is an issue of consistency from the manufacturer, not surprising for $8.
Good for the price but needs reinforcement

I got this wheel for my pet hedgehog, Taro. He loves it and runs on it every night. I did come to some slight problems with it whenever I first got it though. The wheel kept popping off whenever he would run too much or too fast on it. I fixed that problem by buying some gorilla glue and gluing it down. It's worked just fine ever since. I think it's a decent price for the size of the wheel, since pet stores either wanna charge 40 plus or don't have it. The only thing kind of annoying but unrelated to the quality of the product is that the animal will poop/pee while running on it and it gets dirty quickly. haha I will order another one soon for my brother and his hedgehogs.
Not suitable for hedgehog as recommended
on Aug 5, 2018
This size wheel is recommended for hedgehogs, but is actually too small. My poor little hedgie can’t even run on it because of the plastic piece in the center , it hits his quills. He will stand in his cage and put two feet on the wheel and spin it. The largest size wheel should be recommended for hedgehogs. I wasted my money on this one and haven’t been able to buy the larger one yet due to funds. So disappointed
Wheels Are Very Noisy

My hedgehogs love these wheels!! However they are extremely noisy! You definitely don't want them in the same room with you! Especially at night!!
Not so good...

I just received the wheel probably a few days ago and it's not so good. The wheel is malformed, is a little loud because of it, and it is made of a very cheap plastic. I'm not going to be using it at all. I mean, what did I expect from Kaytee brand? For it to be good quality? I also got something called a "Kaytee Flat-Bac" bottle and it's also very cheap plastic and is not usable for my Rat rescue. I don't know how to get refunds on Chewy so I'll have to figure it out. I would not recommend this product, or any of Kaytee's products for that matter.
