About Marks & Spencer Hamster Wheel

Plug the USB Hamster Wheel it into your computer - and when you type the hamster will run in his wheel! In fact the faster you type the faster hammy will run! An "off" switch gives your hamster time to rest. Everyone likes having small furry animals around to talk to, (or is that just us?) and it's even better when they don't require feeding, cleaning,or just watching out for to make sure the cat doesn't get them. Great fun in the office, or as a motivation for learning to touch type!
