An Impulse buy... Review with images

AdvantagesLooks Good

DisadvantagesDifficult to put together, A nightmare to clean

"...of my embarrassment - the Rotastak Space Commander Hamster Cage; I honestly don't know what came over me when I decided a year after settling George our hamster into his perfectly acceptable but unoriginal wired cage that he should have a new home in which to live. I think I was swayed by the magnificent picture (who wouldn't be?, I mean - Look at it!) which proudly adorned the Technicolor box and giving no second thought to the matter I ended up ..."

Green Hamsters

AdvantagesCan be extended

DisadvantagesDifficult to assemble

"...Luckily they also had a Rotastak in an odd shade of green. This was called the Rotastak Space Command Unit, I considered this a bit more of a bargain than the standard one, even though it cost the same £40 this was on the basis that it came complete with a detachable carrying case. What does it look like? It is predominantly clear and luminous green Starting at the ground floor, it has a tube that winds its way up to the top floor. It also ..." Read review

Rotastak- A Gerbil Mansion

AdvantagesFun, Bright, Exciting with a number of levels.

DisadvantagesHard to Assemble & clean out.

"...(in Gerbil terms), just down Rotastak Way, Gerbil Street, Pet Island. So What is Rotastak? Rotastak is a modern alternative to the metal wire cages we all have fond memories clipping water bottles to, and unhatching a large metal door on the front. It consists of bright coloured plastics that can be manipulated using tubes and a series of tanks, to make a fun and exciting habitat for smaller pets, eg, mice, hamsters and gerbils. It looks expensive? The ..." Read review

Space Command Cage - It's certainly a mission!

AdvantagesFun, lots of space

DisadvantagesDifficult to put together

"When I purchased my Syrian Hamster she was in quite a small, single level cage. She was getting quite big, and to be honest I wanted to get her something a little bigger to live in. I came across this cage in my local Pets at Home store, it was price in excess of £50 and was quite pricey. But since, it was a one off purchase I decided to go ahead. Part of what attracted me to the cage was the detachable carry case. Plus I thought it just looked ..." Read review

Rotastak Space Command Unit.

AdvantagesGreat to add extensions on


"...product does not last long. The Rotastak Space Command Unit is more for lads as girls prefer the girly colour ones. Its recommend for hamsters, mice and gerbils but personally gerbils love to gnaw so if you have gerbils, don't waste your money buying this. Mice smell stronger so buy a cage which has more air vents. Cage size is approx 2.5 foot long (30 inches), approx 21/22 inch high and 19/20 inch deep. If you want to be more adventurous ..."

Quick review of Rotastak Space Command Unit

"We recently bought one of these and I was immediately struck by the poor quality of the materials and the awkwardness in putting it together. Far worse though, within a few days our dwarf hamster managed to get trapped in the pipe section and in struggling to free herself was so badly injured that she lost one of her rear legs. You can imagine how traumatic that was for our 6 year old son. I complained at the store and received a full refund (unfortunately legs cannot be replaced) which went some way to offsetting the vet's fees. I think this design is inherently dangerous, particularly for dwarf varieties and I would NEVER recommend it to anyone.

Quick review of Rotastak Space Command Unit

"Just bought one of these and really trust me, DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY. This is the worst unsafe hamster cage I could have bought. The Space Dome is held together by two plastic clips, the tubing is really awkward to piece together and the whole thing is really unsafe for any animal. Really would not recommend this cage to ANYONE.
