It’s empty in here!
Was a bit fiddly to put together but well worth it. Have mainly had plastic cages before this where bits kept snapping off which is virtually impossible with this cage. It’s only our first day of having it but our hamster loves it and so do I. It’s very chic looking and has plenty of space for her to run around and for all her toys as well. Only downside is the picture shows 4 clips to fix the top of the cage to the bottom but mine only came with 2 not a big problem but 4 would’ve been better
this cage is a great cage if you have a mousr or a pair of mice. its a good size for them and has levels for climbing which mice enjoy to do. HOWEVER please do not buy this cage for you hamsters. hamsters need a bigger cage which has to be at least 80x50 cm (lxw) or more. hmaster also prefer to burrow instead of climbing and they have bad depth perception so could fall down or off the ramps. this cage is more expensie than other great cages such as the barney cage which is a better choice.
Reading all of these reviews kind of put me off purchasing this product, but I got it anyway because it looked a great size for my Syrian Hamster to live in. It arrived when expected. My hamster loves the cage and if you are wondering if to purchase it or not then do it! It is well worth the money!
Arrived with the base shattered in several places, but as it was needed asap to replace a tiny cage from petsathome (recommended by staff in store) I decided to just try my best to patch it up with sticky tape. Varnished all the wood with Plastikote (extra £10 spent). The logs, wheel and house are too small for a Syrian. Had to make my own border for the food level (top), but will probably make one for the middle level too. No water bottle was included. Pictures uploaded. Overall happy.
This cage is very big and my three girls love it. It's fiddly to put together, especially alone. Sealing the floors and slopes is essential, I'd have rather that they were plastic with sides for ease of cleaning. Overall it's not easy to clean, doors are small, not enough of them or in the right place. I ordered two, one arrived with a crack in the corner of the base which was very annoying. Base clips are flimsy and feel insecure for it's weight and height, it is quite heavy Lovely size though!
I have had this cage for a few months now and my two female mice love it. There's lots of space and they have not escaped from it. However, the wooden platforms can not be covered with anything and my mice have soiled the wood very badly. Cleaning it from the wood is very difficult and it's beginning to smell so I'm going to have to replace the floor.
I absolutely love this cage. I'm using it for a (very spoilt) single male mouse. It was easy to set up and the accessories are a great size for a mouse! He definitely can't get out with the cage spacing either! I coated the shelves for extra protection and my mouse loves the toys that come with the cage! The wheel is okay, a good size, but I found it difficult to attach. Its not as nice as his current one though but would be a great starter wheel.
Bought this for my dwarf, very spacious , easy to put together , easy access although hard to get big items in middle section as you would need to take shelves out and back in, so i have just put my smaller toys in that area , would defiently recommend!
Ordered this cage which come with in 3 days the wheel was damaged but with one email to Zoo plus this was resolved and was able to purchase the wheel some where else in stead of returning everything can't fault them excellent cage it self was not easy to put together but once up is a great sturdy spacious cage
I bought this cage last year for my hamster and decided to buy another for a hamster I adopted. It's a fabulous spacious cage. The hamsters adore running and climbing everywhere. I do agree that it is a little fiddly to put together but once it is together it is brilliantly sturdy, solid, safe and secure A must for our little furry friends
I bought this cage last year for Digit, my Syrian hamster. I've just purchased another as I've recently adopted another Syrian from a pet store. This cage is totally amazing!!! Lots of space to place and discover!!! A little tricky to put together but this shows how sturdy the cage is One pleased customer 2 pleased hamsters
It's a lovely solid cage. Bar spacing ideal for a dwarf hamster. My only complaint is my shelves where not in the box. I did call Zooplus straight away and they are refunding me £15. I did buy one of the large wooden climbing towers luckily so he has that to play on untill hubby makes his floors with plywood we have. At least I can improvise with them around his playground. Overall very happy with what I paid
I find this cage spacious & the mice love all the levels, Plenty of room for extra enrichment toys & bedrooms etc. Only downside is cleaning out which is rather time consuming as they seem to use the top level as their loo area & it takes a while for the wooden floors to dry out before they can go back in & have to spend at least a few hours in cleaning out cage Overall quite happy with it
My hamster was constantly climbing and chewing his bars, ignored his wheel and just looked bored. So I did an online search for a big cage and this is the only large cage I could find, and wow how glad am I! The cage was despatched from Germany and arrived in a week. It comes in a large box with 2 plywood levels, large black horizontal barred cage with 3 small side openings and a large top opening, 2 ladders, pins to hold levels in place, a large white plastic base, 2 plastic clips to secure base to cage (2 handle like pieces also but haven't figured them out yet) a plywood see-saw, a wooden house with red roof (please do as other reviews say and thoroughly wash this as it is FULL of nasty dye!) 2 bark covered logs that only a dwarf hamster could crawl through, and the biggest hamster wheel I've ever seen! This cage was simple to construct- but a tad fiddly. I placed the top shelf lower than the instructions show to allow the giant wheel to fit on the top shelf. I scrubbed then steeped the red roof and geez the red dye that came off! I have an albino teddy bear so wasn't risking having a pink hamster! The base is large and deeper than any hamster cage I've had before. The ladders are quite steep and not secured only sits in grooves but work great. The house door also seems to be made for dwarf hamsters so winston refuses to enter. The side doors make getting into each level rather fiddly but there's no other way to design such a fab cage I suppose. The openings at each level are wide so winston often falls down them, but it's not a hire drop. All bars are horizontal so I had to squeeze the water bottle nozzle through but it's ok. All in all I think this is the best cage ever! I'm worried about the plywood absorbing liquids but we shall wait see if that happens. My hamster has gone from chewing and climbing bars and never even looking at his teeny cage, and every time cage opened, desperate to escape, to playing constantly, loving running in his new wheel and not wanting to leave his cage! Total transformation!!!
My hamster Evie was in a longer, low ,tank style cage, but was constantly trying to climb. I purchased this cage because of it's height and full levels, although I was concerned that it wasn't as long as I would have liked. Evie is a small Syrian hamster, so I decided to try the cage anyway. I was really impressed with the speed of delivery - I ordered on a Sunday afternoon before a Bank Holiday Monday and the cage was delivered on Wednesday. The cage was well packaged and in perfect condition. The bars are quite strong. I decided to only use one of the included levels to allow me to use taller toys in both spaces and I constructed some smaller wooden shelves for additional space and to prevent Evie from falling too far. I would have preferred the base to be a little deeper, to stop the substrate from falling out, but at approx. 10cm deep, it isn't as shallow as many cages and I simply stood the cage inside of a deeper tray to catch the mess! Evie seems really settled in this cage and, despite my fears, it does give her plenty of space to explore, especially with the extra levels. I would recommend this cage for smaller Syrians who enjoy climbing, or dwarf hamsters, as the bars are narrow. Large Syrians would probably benefit from a longer cage.
I bought this cage recently and I’m very happy with it. I bought it for my Syrian hamster, Coco, as I found he didn’t like going up and down the plastic tubes in his previous cage, which resulted in him jumping off one of the platforms in the cage and hurting his back leg. He’s absolutely fine now but after that happened I wanted to find a cage that 1) didn’t have any tubes between the levels and 2) had platforms that ran the full length/width of the cage so he wouldn’t be able to jump off them! When you look at cages online this is easier said than done but then my husband found this one and it’s perfect. It’s a really lovely, generous size, so now Coco has lots of room to explore and it didn’t take him long to get used to going up and down the ladders. The base arrived with very small cracks in two places but I guess that can happen to plastic things when in transit, and they were nothing worth complaining about or requesting a replacement for. It didn’t take us too long to put together – working out what levels to put the platforms on was the trickiest part, to make sure the ladders weren’t too steep. I didn’t use the house or wheel that came with the cage as I already had other ones, but I put the see-saw in, along with some other enrichments. I didn’t put the wooden logs in as I knew Coco would try to squeeze through the small holes and probably get his head stuck! All in all he seems very happy in his new abode and I’d say it’s definitely worth the money to have a happy hammy! Highly recommended.
Very quick delivery, sent a text In the morning by DPD with an hour delivery slot which was very useful. Cage arrived undamaged and well packaged. Shelves were a little fiddly to get in but they are very secure once in place. Accessories are rather small for our Syrian hamster but we just used the ones from our previous cage so not a problem. There is lots of space to run around in and add additional toys, cardboard tubes etc. well worth paying a little more than you would in a pet store for a much better cage! Would definitely recommend this cage, lovely to watch Cookie happily exploring her new mansion! :-)
After doing a lot of research to find Digit the best home I came across zooplus and their amazing selection of cages! I decided on the leon cage and must say I made the right choice! Digit loves her new home. She runs up and down the levels and it's great to leave little treats hidden on the different levels so she doesn't get bored. The cage is amazing in size and price. Thank you zooplus for a superb hamster heaven home !!!
This is such a fab cage for my daughters hamster Milo. He is so happy and more active. It is such fun to watch him burrowing under the woodchips and looking for his treats and toys, and climbing up the ladders and sliding across the wire. He is so funny. thank you Zooplus for great service and cage.
I purchased the Fun Area Leon Cage for my childrens Syrian Hamster after researching several cages and reading the reviews. I am very happy with the cage and from what I can tell so is Charlie the Hamster. It is a large cage with plenty of space for a Syrian Hamster. We modified the cage to our liking, added an 11.5 wheel and lots of toys. The toys that came with the cage are OK, but not great. Our Hammy likes the red roof house and has already chewed up one of the logs. The see saw is a bit useless and won't even stay together properly. I believe the wheel is too small for a Syrian and too noisy, but honestly our Hamster didn't seem to mind the wheel which he used for a week before we replaced it. The small doors make it a bit fiddly to access the lower levels but again this is not a big problem in the grand scheme of things and since cutting back half of the top floor this is much easier now for us. I don't believe there are any out of the box perfect cages out there for a Syrian, but this one is pretty close.
I purchased this for my male syrian hamster, Chester (he's on the smaller size for a syrian so I thought this Would be perfect, and it is but I have just one problem). The measurements for the base are wrong, by only a few centimeters but it makes a Differnece, and quite a pain if you ordered specific toys to fit (I oreder a lg cabin with multiple rooms for the base floor). The base starts of with the given measurements, but curves inwards and has a three centimeter thick ledge which results in loss of floorspace. Not a huge matter, but it still bothers me. The second level is also almost impossible access with only one rather small door, so finding things to put in it (I couldn't even fit a willow tunnel with a 10cm diameter through the door opening) is quite a pain also. The doors are also extremely hard to open, but I suppose that's probably just because it's a new-ish cage. I've found a solution for taking the pins out of the wooden levels for cleaning - a good ole pliers does the job like a gem, so cleaing isn't a an issue. Also nothing was broken in the shipping of this cage along with a glass water bottle from Germany to Ireland, so for that I'm rather impressed. Over all it's a good cage, and you really couldn't go wrong with the price. The positive things outnumber the negative, and Chester loves it (maybe apart from the fact that he can't have his beloved hammocks due to the levels, but he has plenty of space!).
i have 9 mice in this cage and i have been very impressed with it. however i have had to use japlac on the shelves as they are made from wood and can easily soak up any mess. also i have found with both the shelves in i was unable to put all the toys in and hangs so i only use one shelf and i am able to fit loads more toys in there. the tray is kinda flimsy and when we got it through the post it had a small crack in the corner that has only grown. having said that having duct tape there has slowed it down. i have also purchased the barney hamster cage for my male mice and when i have less mice i am planning on joining the 2 together which means i can get rid of the tray for this one. other than that the delivery was very speedy and i have been on here more since i have got this cage however i think i have exhausted this website for random toys for my little furries. however i regularly get bedding from here and sometimes get my babas a little something whether it be treats or toys because the prices are so competitive.
I really took to this cage with the other reviews and the fact that it had three levels.My hamster pepper was miserable in his other cage. But now he is a happy boy out and about exploring everything. Instead of sleeping most of the time. He was not very keen to come out of his cage tonight to go in his exercise ball. Ordered on 6th arrived today 11th that was good considering theirs the christmas rush. Went out and ordered more goodies for his cage from zoo-plus tonight. ACCESSORIES WERE NICE But too small. Got my joiner friend to make holes bigger in the house and the tree toys. Now He can use them. Only bad thing to say is the tray was broken slightly at the bottom. Would get this cage again as Im thinking about getting another hamster.
My latest hamster Patak loves his new cage. I have four syrian hamsters (all kept seperate of course) and this is my fourth purchase of this cage. All my syrian hamsters love these cages. As with my previous review the accessories are way too small for syrians but ok for dwarfs. Also remember to wash the red house roof as this colour will bleed out of it and you might end up with a red mouthed hamster if he/she chews it. Lots of space for a hamster to run around in and lots of space to add wheels and toys etc. Keep a check on the price as it does go up from time to time. I paid £69.00 approx for this cage which is a good price especially when you see how much and how small lots of cages are. Easy enough to assembles. Also hamsters still like to come out of their cage even though the cage is big. My four hamster Chorizo, Butternut, Pedro and Patak and all relaxed, active and happy hamsters living in this fantastic cage.
I rescued my hamster from the RSPCA. I was concerned why she ignored her wheel and was generally a lazy hamster! My research found that the wheel I had for her was too small that's why she was ignoring it. Also her cage was too small. I searched high and low for new cages and this was the only one I found which had the floor space along with the levels as my hammy likes to climb. I was really worried she would chew the wood levels but she hasn't as she has so many other wood toys to play with. Great cage, would defo get another :)
I have just bought this cage for my syrian hamster Butternut. She was sleeping too much so we invested in this wonderful cage. The toys are not really suitable for a syrian hamster but great for a dwarf hamster. Added own toys to the cage so has become a very customed cage now. Kept the hamster house which is great. As read on another review wash the roof as the red dye will come out. Much appreciated advice as my hamster is mainly white so she could have ended up very pink. I think this is a fantastic cage. Arrived within 5 days of ordering. All in one piece and easy to assemble. Great space for a syrian as Butternut spends most of the night running around and playing with her toys she loves it. I have replaced the wheel with two silent spinners as this wheel is a bit noisy. I have already done a quick review but am updating this as I have now just ordered another one of these fantastic cages for my other hamster Chorizo. She has a rotostak but it looks so small now against this cage so decided she must have this wonderful cage to run around in Obviously one cage per one hamster as must live alone. Can't wait until it arrives. It certainly made Butternut very active indeed. Looking forward to putting Chorizo in the cage and watch her run around. Good value for money and creates a very happy hamster. Large cages for a hamster not easy to find so thank you zooplus
This is the best cage ever. Not difficult to put together. Butternut loves it. Was sleeping too much in her old cage but is highly active now. Added my own wooden chews as the ones that come with the cage are better suited for dwart hamsters not Syrians. Added two silent spinner wheels but kept the house. Wonderful cage
really happy with this cage so thankyou. it arrived quickly and in good condition (though a little corner of the tray had snapped off but easily fixed and could happen with anything regardless of how much you package it) this is an amazing cage for my four girl mice, they didn't know what to think of it at first but are whizzing up and down now they are very happy. i am going to coat the wooden shelves with a none toxic paint thats easily wipeable and where the pee wont soak in, although i have full newspapers on top of the shelves around most of them and they seem to be fine. The shelves are tricky to get in but managed it. accessaries great and very useful as theres a lot of room to fill. the space is the best that ive seen in a cage suitable for mice (narrow enough bar spacing). thankyou zooplus- well worth the money :)
After looking around for a week or so for a new cage for our new Syrian Hamster, this seemed to be perfect. My hamster loves it, it fits very well on my shelf in the front room and looks great. One corner was a bit damaged when I received it, nothing worth sending the lot back for, a little super glue fixed it. Overall the reviews really helped me make up my mind, I am not disappointed at all and my hamster loves it, I am sure!
Great cage lots of interest!! A little bit fiddly to put levels in! but overall a good size and due to the three levels creates an interesting and stimulating environment.I have not put in the wooden tubes yet as a little worried a syrian may get stuck perhaps they more suited to dwarf hamsters. (will try to hollow out a little more) Hamster very happy!! Looks good too! nice neutral colours.
Very good quality cage. Our new syrian hamster has great fun running about on all three levels - there is sooooo much space! Great for fitting in all those fun toys for hammie to play with. Quite heavy so very sturdy once in position. Slightly difficult to get the hamster out of, but I just think we need more practice at it. Floors aren't that easy to remove for cleaning once in position, so you have to clean them where they are, which isn't really a problem, just a comment. We researched lots of hamster homes before buying this one and we are not disappointed. Would recommend to anyone. As previous reviews, we did soak out the red dye from the hamster house roof before use (maybe the manufacturer could sort this one out surely!!).
I bought this cage for my hamster minnie as i had a really small one from pets at home, they dont seem to supply big cages and i soon learned that my cage was more for dwarf hamsters and i have a syrian, her wheel barley worked beacuse of her weight and it was cheap plastic, she is not fat but she has got really big, some people say she is boardering on guinnea pig lol, so i felt that she really needed more space, i bought her this cage and i dont think she could be happier, granted the layers are really tricky to get in, i hope she pees on the sawdust as i dont ever wanna talk them back out to clean, my tray also turned up abit cracked but after waiting long enough i just taped it. i do worry some how she will get out as her cage before was more plastic so less risky, she is an escape artist. i also bought her the wooden wheel which is fantastic, i can now see she was desperate for a wheel. very very happy minnie with a hole lot more space, she dont want to come out any more :( xx
This is a fantastic cage with plenty of room, I can't praise it enough. I love it, hamster loves it. Just soak the red dye out of the hamster house roof before use!
Is the height between the ground floor and 1st floor big enough for fitting your own house toys ect...?
world this be ideal for 2 gerbils because they liek to chew alot, they have torn through a log cabin
I ordered this cage for my 5 baby mice and I'm very impressed with the size and quality. My mice were 9-10 weeks old when they went in, so quite small still, but the small bar spacing means no escapes. The only down side would be the wooden shelves, over time when the wee sinks in it would smell, but I simply painted the shelves with Japlac (brought from homebase) and problem solved. Excellent cage for value :)
i have 1 syrian hamster (honeysuckle) and she LOVES this cage, theres lots for here to do and tons of space to run around in. its massive, my mum walked it to the room after i assembled it and said 'wow its a hamster hotel' i've given it 4 stars though cos the base had a crack in it when it arrived, rather than send it back i just taped it up! best cage ever!! :o)
So easy to put together and very large so suitable for a serian hamster with a lot of toys! would definitly recomend this cage! although the items that come free with the cage are pretty much useless as they are to small for a syrian hamster to fit through but are very cheap to repalace & add your own taste. Cheap cage to buy as wont need replacing when hamster gets to big.
if you have a hamster that likes to chew things then i wouldnt wouldt be great but other wise its spacious and great
The Cage arrived very quickly after order however the plastic base was cracked and broken on one corner. I emailed zooplus with my problem they sent out a new cage (which arrived 3 days later) and they also arranged for a courier to pick up the old one too. Very friendly service and quick to respond, it was no trouble to replace it. The cage itself is great once you get it set up. The wires were a little bent at first but after I got the levels in they straightened out. The ladders are a bit tricky to put in, you have to make sure you put the first ladder in before you put the second ladder in other wise you won't get it in. I also swapped out the hooks for clips to prevent them from coming out. I was worried about my hamster weeing on the wooden floors but she hasn't so far and they do clean quick easily with a pet friendly wipe. The accessories are a little too small for a syrian hamster but I bought all my own toys seperatly anyway. The only thing I did use was the house. Just make sure you soak the roof, the red dye runs straight out and doesn't come of things easy inculding your pets! fortunatly I was aware of this before hand so I didn't have any mishaps. I had to bend one of the bars a little to get the water bottle in but that was no big deal really. Over all an excellent cage well designed so they can't fall from a great height, spacious so there is plenty of room for them to run about and to put toys in. My hamster loves it! I'm considering buying another hamster and I will definitly be buying another one of these cages if I do so.
