What a cool idea. It is nice to see an event for kids that have small pets. Most of the events we see focus on cats or dogs.

I like this idea, too. It is great that they are educating children on how to care for these pets.

Guinea pigs can't roll in hamster balls. They have fragile spines and could break their backs. If they had relay races, I might do it.

I love my hamster. He enjoys his wheels, he has a motorcycle too, but the ball is easier to manuever.

When I had hamster's I didn't know that the hamster derby was around. But also they would try and run on top of the hamster wheel and on the side of it all the time too. This is great so that people can have a special bonding time event with their hamsters just like they can with their dogs.
