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.
Stuart’s Personality and Updates
Stew has been doing really well, and the 27th will be one month since getting him. Today I will be talking about all the things I’ve learned about Stuart in that time.
I brought home my second hamster on May 27th, 2021. I then gave him 3 nights to settle into his new home before his taming began. This post will be documenting Stuart’s taming process and progress from May 30th to June 15th, 2021.
The First 3 Days With Stuart

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.

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.
