Here's a list of basic things you need before bringing a hamster home:

Recommended size for Dwarf is around 1.5 feet.
Recommended size for Syrian is 2 feet.

Food Bowl & Drinking Bottle.
Many cages nowadays comes with these.
However, do remember to get them individually if you are getting a tank.

Do try to get bottles with ball bearings o avoid water leakage.

Hamsters love to run, thus a wheel is needed.
If you are getting a cage, a wheel will most likely be in the package. However, do take note of the size of the wheel.
It is always recommended to get a bigger wheel. Do not hesitate to get a big wheel if there's enough space and enough cash.

Minimum recommended size:

Robo: 12 to 17cm
Winter White: 15 to 17cm
Campbells: 15 to 17cm
Syrians: 21cm [17cm is only acceptable if your Syrian is very small and short in length]


Bedding is a must have for hamsters. Sleeping on "concrete floor" does not feel nice.
