Krinkle-It Foraging Tube Toy DIY Tutorial
Welcome to the Krinkle-It Foraging Tube Toy DIY Tutorial! I received a parcel the other day and to my delight it was packed with Krinkle-It paper shreds! As soon as I saw them I knew I wanted to make this DIY.
With this toy your hamster is provided with food, stimulation, and nesting material.
These toys are ridiculously expensive, and I see no reason to spend money on one when you can do it yourself! Today I’m going to be showing you how to make a few versions of the common, confetti-ish, foraging toy we all know and love.
There are many, many different substrates to choose from. Some safe, some unsafe. Some are more enriching than others, but the most natural of them all is soil. Sometimes natural is not always better, but today I would like to argue that soil is just as good or perhaps better than other substrates, from my personal experience.

DIY Twine Carrot Tutorial
Hello and welcome to the DIY (do it yourself) twine carrot tutorial! These are quite common small pet toys, and are available in most pet stores. I used to have one of these toys for Beanie, and she had a great time decimating it. My version is smaller than the ones you’d typically find in stores, but it is also adorable 😍
DIY Two-Story Popsicle Stick Apartment Tutorial (For Dwarf Hamsters)
Hello and welcome to this week’s post! I recently purchased a few different sizes of popsicle sticks from my local dollar store, and I was very eager to create something with them.
After some thought I designed this house, with a second story and a removable lid for easier cleaning. The stilts are for submerging in substrate to prevent the house from moving or crushing a burrowing hamster.
‘For Dwarf Hamsters,’ is not a suggestion; this DIY is not a suitable size for Syrian/Chinese hamsters.
Where To (And To Not!) Adopt a Hamster
When looking to adopt a hamster most people automatically go to a pet store, but are there better options? What makes those options better? How do you know if an option is “good?” Today we’ll be talking about why supporting pet stores isn’t the best choice and offering ideas for places to find a hamster to adopt.
Popsicle Stick Bridge DIY Tutorial
Greetings! This week I will be demonstrating how I created this really neat popsicle stick bridge for Beanie, my Syrian hamster.
This toy is inspired by those rainbow-bridge toys, which I’ve tried making before. However, I find it is very difficult to get the rails right when I try with cardboard, so I wanted to try it with popsicle sticks. Personally, I’m quite pleased with the results!
