That being said, this is my favorite exercise ball out there, especially for the price. Its flaws are nothing a little tape can't fix. Does it get annoying having to re-tape it every time? Sure, but my phone can wait an extra 5 seconds for me to check my empty text message inbox. Apparently gerbils are my only friends. I wouldn't put them in this if it wasn't safe enough.
Solid four stars.
Anyway, sadly, this "model" that is NOT the same as the picture shown on the purchase site, will be going back asap. It is a Bad design, and not very well thought out idea, at least not to anyone who owns or understands small critters like hamsters.
"Original Review/product" (before the redesign) So far so good. It works as advertised, and my daughters new hamster loves cruising around the house in it. He'd rather be free and he has escaped from his extravagant enclosure and we found him under the dishwasher chewing the floor up and not the wires and tubes in my brand new Bosch dishwasher thank god-..for him. So this is a much better option for us all to allow him some freedom to roam about. The plastic feels durable, and the lid stays nice and snug so the little guy stays safe inside.
UPDATE on THIS Ball 05-31-16: The plastic has developed multiple cracks and breakage from very careful and gentle use, = Not Well Made or poor quality materials, or a combination of both.
As with any clear product and animals put together, this can get dirty. After frequent cleanings, I still find this to have a cloud on it, never coming completely clean.
I will keep using this as its a great exercise tool for my hamster. It does what its describe and made to do.
