We have a very active girl rat who loves to run on the floor. In 18 years of having rats we have never had one who likes running in a ball. But this little girl loves it! She can now safely explore all over the house. The only drawback is if you don’t get the lid on just right it can pop open.
DONT BUY THIS MY HANSTER ESCAPED

I bought this for my hamster thinking it would be good. I got my hamster and put him on the floor to roll. About 2 minutes later I heard that the ball stopped moving but I thought he was just grooming himself and did nothing but he escaped! Luckily my sister found him under the couch and when I got the hamster ball I noticed the lid wasn’t closing properly it just pops off! It’s also VERY hard to get apart and clean!! Plus the lid just falls in the ball a lot and hurts my hand getting out since my hand is too big it’s just scrapes against the edges.
Look fun but..

Made of heavy duty plastic.. put our chinchilla in it and within a few minutes the lid popped and he was loose... figured maybe we didn’t hook it right so we latched it made sure it was good and started again again the lid loosened and eventually gave him the room to get loose.

I bought this from my Syrian Hamster, who I was thinking could use a bigger ball because based on what I read online the one I had was too small. I have had it for a short time, maybe 1 month and she has escaped the ball TWICE. I walk into a bedroom and there, an empty ball, a missing hamster and a wandering house cat. I refuse to use it after the second occurrence and now I have to order yet another ball. Stay away from this ball unless you’re OK with you hamster breaking free and free roaming.

It’s a good idea, but my guinea pig doesn’t use it. She just sits in it, so I’d say, it gets her out of her cage for a bit, and my daughter attempts to play with her in the ball, but the ball door thing, pops open too easily.
Please dont purchase

I have bought many of these over the years and this time it seems to be made differently and with cheaper plastic. Quite flimsy and the latch doesn't hold as well.
I love it!!

I know some people don’t like this balls but My hamster loved it but don’t leave them a very long time there and always use it with supervision.

Got two of them for each of my children’s hamsters. They are a perfect fit, and the hamsters LOOOVE them. They roll all over the house without a problem! The door on the ball latches extremely securely, so I’m not worried about one getting out and the dog chasing it. We live in an apartment, so there’s just enough room to roll around. The kids don’t even have to put the hamsters in the balls because they walk in willingly. Make sure you clean the balls after using because they might pee or poop in the ball while playing. I’m glad I got the Kaytee one because all of the others had terrible reviews and had issues with their hamsters escaping. Have fun!
