Apollo Wheel VS Silent Runner

A wheel is a vital part of any sugar glider cage. It provides them with exercise, entertainment and it is a stress reliever. My gliders run on their wheel (off and on) for hours. I have no idea what they’d do without it! It’s important to find a good, glider safe wheel. Hamsters wheels are absolutely NOT SAFE. Anything that…

Welcome back to An Inky Dream! Today I will be doing another DIY. This is super simple and your gliders will have a blast playing with it. The colors that I used for this toy are not ideal. I wish I would have done them all in blue beads instead of using the orange, but I ran out of blue…

$5 Easter Toy Haul

Easter season is an awesome time to find cheap sugar glider toys. We went to the Dollar Store today and I found treasures there! It’s amazing how many every day things that can be used for toys/used in toy making. ~Hattush

Inexpensive Toy Ideas

Toys that are marketed to sugar glider owners are INSAINLY expensive for what they are. Because sugar gliders are an exotic pet, people price the toys incredibly high. What’s sad about it is that half of the things that are sold as “safe for a sugar glider” really aren’t. Anything that has strings, many metal toys, anything with small parts…NOT…
