When people think of fun hamster toys, the last thing that comes to their minds is probably chew toys. Don't dismiss these items as silly though. Hamsters, much like a lot of other animals, love to chew on things. And if they love to chew on stuff, they will! So instead of letting them eat things their not supposed to, why not provide them with something that is good for them?
Any reputable website or pet shop should have a number of hamster chew toys for you to choose from. A lot of these are tasty little numbers for your pet as well. So not only will your pet chew his way to a healthier lifestyle but he'll actually get some enjoyment along the way. Most of these toys run from about $3-$7 for a small pack. Not much considering they'll last for a super long time. Hamsters teeth aren't that big and their appetites are even smaller! If you don't want to go this route, here's another suggestion.
In my experience, Hamsters love to chew wood. Get yourself down to the pet store and look for some wooden chew toys for rodents. They should be labeled clearly as non-toxic and not contain any traces of an evergreen tree. For some reason, hard woods aren't supposed to be too healthy for hamsters. Stick to softer woods so you don't risk your pet's teeth.
If you're a tad on the stingy side, don't worry. Remember that climbing toy you made out of cardboard? This can easily double as a chew toy for your pet. Yep, that's right. All you have to do is put a cardboard tube in your hamster's cage and let him rip. Stick to cardboard without ink in it and you won't have to worry about your pet getting sick.
