  • All accessories are fully removable to customize
  • Very large and there is nothing like it available in the stores
  • Available through Amazon Prime

The Prevue Universal Cage is a great option for hamster owners on a budget. It's a lovely and sturdy cage with a more grown-up feel to it over other barred cages. The platform is a nice touch as well and adds additional floor space.​

The Kevin is another great option for all hamster owners. It is similar in construction to the Heaven, but is actually even larger. The Kevin provides 640 square inches of space! This makes the optional stand even more helpful, as it fits the cage perfectly. The stand also provides a handy shelf for hamster supplies, and is fitted wit castors for easy moving. Of course, you could simply keep the cage on a suitable piece of furniture too. Either way, your hamster will love it!

The Vekto 82 stand is available here in white and here in black. It also ships Amazon Prime.

There are a few appropriate options for bar cages. We will discuss all of them on this page!

The Goran 82 is essentially the same as the Kevin, but in more elegant colours and outfitted with different accessories. It does not, for example, have a second corner shelf. The bar spacing on the Goran is also 1/2" rather than the 1/4" on the Kevin.Of course, it will need more creativity to make it a stimulating environment. The Goran also fits on the Vekto 82 stand.


While the Goran 82 offers the same footprint as the Kevin, there is a Goran 72 option that is smaller. We feel the 82 is better and urge you to choose it instead.
