Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Trixie 6274 Hanging Bridge for Hamsters 29 x 25 x 9 cm (Misc.)
I bought this toy for my roborovski hamster... While it appears to be of good quality, there is a slight problem: it's massive! My fault for not reading the dimensions, of course. However, I struggle to see how any hamster cage would be big enough to accommodate such a massive toy: it fits, of course, but takes up a lot of space!! Moreover, I find it unlikely that any really small animal (such as a roborovski hamster) would actually be able to play on the horinzontal ladder - my hamster would definitely fall through the gaps! So, probably better suited to larger hamsters!
As I said though, it seems to be very good quality... I ended up taking the toy to pieces and just hanging up the ropes, which my hamster seems to like!

Maybe sellers of Hamster toys need to specify which type of hamsters the toys are suitable for. I have bought several toys that are too big for my Russian dwarfs.

I completely agree with you TWC, I also think that there should be distinctions made when selling cages as there are far too many Syrian hamsters in cages that are nowhere near big enough for them. My Syrian loves this bridge - and to Chloe - I understand that you don't have a Syrian but you said you couldn't understand how it would fit in any hamster cage, I can tell you that mine takes up a very small space in 'Nina's' 80cm x 50cm x 40cm cage! (Which is about the size that is the minimum recommended for Syrians). She also has a 11inch free standing wheel in there, a huge tube (far bigger than the hanging bridge), the other bed and food normal things and she has loads more space if I want to add things. She is rescued from a student who's flat was too cold and she arrived in a tiny cage with a wheel she couldn't use; she would try to run on top of the wheel, but she could only last a couple of seconds and her back would be rubbing hard against the bars. She is incredibly happy in her new cage! :D I am not blaming anyone for not knowing, because the stores sell these tiny cages as 'hamster' cages and Syrian hamsters are the most popular pet hamsters apparently. I wish the stores would take more responsibility for giving out the proper information... :(
