Popsicle sticks?

I’d love to build my hamster some little hideouts or structures out of popsicle sticks to add to his cage. I’ve heard that they can splinter and poke the hamster if they chew on it but what are your guys’ thoughts? If I only use them to cover a cardboard wall or something like that would it be ok?

My hamsters have never chewed on popsicle sticks, so I've used them without issue. Though, this will differ from hamster to hamster. If you want to try it out I say go for it, but keep an eye to make sure it's not being chewed. I am not sure about all your building plans, but I recommend not using the popsicle sticks as a "fence," there have been multiple reports of injury from doing this.
