I've had this system for over a year now and wanted to wait before reviewing the Super Pet Critter Trail Activity Accessory Kit.
If you already have one or several of the CritterTrail cage units, this is going to fit perfectly.
In my opinion, it's best suited for Gerbils or Mice... Hamsters (according to hamster owners) don't do as well. I have made videos demonstrating the accessory Kit attached to the cage, I cannot link it here as it's too long.
The pets/gerbils tend to make a nest in the observation/petting enclosure (green top as pictured here)... rarely do they go into the purple loop and they frequently use the wheel.
This particular wheel design is not as good in my opinion as some of the other designs offered by Critter Trail. Many people are asking about noise? Well, when it's new, no problem, lubricate the wheel with olive oil and you're good to go. What happens is, that over time, the wheel tilts on its axis and begins to rub against the support flat/round section. There really is nothing you can to about that rubbing noise. This rubbing and the Top-Heavy nature of the tower design is why I give this unit four stars instead of five.
I still think it's fun and does add dimension and interest for children as well as your pets. Assembles easily and all parts are very easy to take apart and clean.
I certainly do recommend it. Life expectancy of the wheel... circa one year.
