Your new hamster needs to get familiar with you and your family! Even though they are tame and handled by us regularly, they need to get familiar with all the new people in their forever lives.
The playpen is a perfect tool for you to sit with your hamster and allow them to safely interact with humans without fear of being lost. As you can see in the pictures, we use the play pen for our adopters to meet meet and safely handle their new hamster pup. (Otherwise do not use them outdoors) The playpen is also a great way to let your hamster out of their cage and play with different wheels and other toys.
These make a great playpen! Take each panel and zip tie them together in the corners--viola! This can be set up as a very large play pen and will allow at least 2 people to sit in the pen with the hamster. When you're done, it can easy be folded away. (Recommended)
Pictured left. This will allow one small child to sit in the play pen with a couple of toys and the hamster. It can be chewed through very easily, so do not leave hamsters unsupervised! It can be folded down super flat for easy storage.
If you can't or don't want to buy a playpen, you can use your bathtub! Plug the drain, put a blanket down inside, and add a wheel + toys. You can interact with your hamster by sitting inside (great for young children) or kneeling from the outside.
