Nice size and sturdy. My rabbit doesn't use them very often, but she does like filing her nails on them and running under the steps.

This spends most of its time on its side. The rabbits only have to lean on it and it falls over.

Good for getting up to another level in the cage
Bought this as a 'ladder' for my guinea pigs to get up to the shelf where I put their food. I had to anchor it to the side bars with a cable tie around one of the logs on the top but it works fine and the piggies love it :)

Only giving 4 *'s as my rats don't rate it :( Really great product tho... Was hoping they would have a bit of a chew on it and what not not but they're not really phased by it - it normally ends up on it's side on one of the levels
Great for rats
These are very big which is great. My rats like to chew on these as well as climb and play on them. Theyre a great addition! They look very nice too.
Very good, stable if you position it right, it’s also very big. However, one of the ones I ordered was very dusty but you can just brush it down. Only other thing is that I’m hoping it’s pet safe glue because glue had leaked around the bottom legs.
Nails sticking out!
Had these for just over a month for my four degus, and at first they were perfect. However, after them having a little bit of a nibble on the edge, to my horror,I found that there were nails sticking up right out of it. I feel we've had a lucky escape from injury

Even suitable for dwarf hamsters, with adaptations!
I bought one for my dwarf hamster - though the description says it's not suitable for them due to the gap between steps (which is correct), I've put a wooden ladder up to the top step, with the boost from a bit of bedding the bottom step is entirely accessible, and the middle one is accessed by jumping down from the top, which she's quite happy to do. It would be perfectly sized for a Syrian or rat.
Good value for money!

Perfect for Degus!
My girls love these! They look really good with the small log cabin too!

Great for hammies
Ok so this is loads bigger than it looks and wouldn't fit most of the smaller Hamster cages .. however it does fit in the Alexander and my little Pixie loves climbing over it :) great for hiding treats on the different levels too.

Not very stable
Much bigger than in the picture but fits in my Ferplast 120 cage really well. I was impressed with it until I put it in the cage and realised it was not very stable - put some food on the top bit to encourage my two guinea pigs to climb up - one of them put one leg on it and the steps shook and the food fell on his head! Going to try to fix it to the sides of the cage in a couple of places to stabilise it. My guinea pigs are male and quite big but I thought it should have taken their weight.

I bought this for my guinea pigs to encourage them to stretch up and they love it! I put their veg. on the top when out in their run and it makes them reach up and then they run into their hide very pleased with themselves! It helps them to use the muscles they don't really get a chance to use in their cage or run! :)

too tricky for less agile guinea pigs.
I bought these for my 2 guinea pigs but they don't seem agile enough to climb onto it and the positioning of the screws does not give them a lot of space to jump onto or sit on the lower sections. I'm going to have a go at repositioning the sections as other than that it's a sturdy good value product and it's a good way to give them more exercise, if only I can make it work for my lazy girls!

Good for more adventurous guinea pigs
I bought this for my 4 guinea pigs - 2 of them love climbing and exploring so absolutely love it, and spend most of the day lounged on it. The other 2 aren't quite as agile and prefer to stay low down, so they kept pushing it over and didn't even attempt to climb up it. In all it's a really good product for smaller, more agile guinea pigs.
Guinea Pigs Love It
My two male Guinea Pigs love these stairs, much larger than in the picture but the perfect size for their cage, they love it when i have some treat hanging high up and they have to balance on top. I would highly recommend especially for such a great price!
Good, but dusty!
I ordered these for rats too and they're a really good size, I'm sure our lot will get hours of joy out of them!
The thing which lost them marks however, was the fact that I opened the packet and loads of sawdust fell out onto my living room floor! I shook the stairs out outside and brushed them down, but I'm still going to have to give them a good wash before putting them in the cage. Rats have very sensitive respiratory systems, so they're not suitable if they're really dusty.

Run up, run down, run up!
I have two male rats who absolutely LOVE these stairs! The stairs are alot bigger than I thought they would be ('Hamster Steps' makes it sound small)... very impressed! I also bought a Food Ball and have it hanging above the top step - they have to climb the stairs and reach for the goodies! A perfect addition to their cage!

A perfect toy for a rat
My rats really like this and it keeps them busy from hours on end!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One of my rats favourite accesories!
My rats absolutely LOVE this and its really good value considering how big it is. I think it is a brilliantly designed cage accesory and small furries also like to chew on the bark to keep teeth trim :) I throughly recommend this cage accesory...particularly for larger cages.
