    This is a growing list of items you can get in Hamsterz Life for the 
    Nintendo DS. I will provide detailed descriptions of the items where 
    possible, particularly for toys. A section for mini-games may follow in 
    later versions.
    If you wish to contribute items to this list, please feel free to email 
    me (skyepie@gmail.com). You will be credited of course :)
    ~~ Updates ~~ 1.1 ~~
    Version 1.0: First edition. 
    Version 1.5: New items, updated my username since I seem to keep mixing 
    them up. Curse these internet aliases! Haha :P
    Version 2.0: New items
           (2.0) About Items
    There are lots of items you can obtain in Hamsterz Life. These items are 
    divided into food items, cage items, accessories and toys for your 
    hamster. Unlike Nintendogs or other pet sim games, you can only obtain 
    these items by playing the mini-games or taking your pet for a romp 
    around your room and getting it to pick up little gift boxes scattered 
    about. What items you will get is also entirely random so you may want 
    to play with your hamster often in order to ensure you have an adequate 
    supply of food and water.
    Tip: You may notice after a while, you tend to get a lot of the same item. 
    Newer hamsters seem more likely to get different items like cages so you 
    may want to think about adding extra hamsters to your collection once 
    you've accumulated lots of food.
               (3.0) Food
    The biggest necessity to ensuring your hamster leads a long and happy 
    life. There are four categories of food, and two different kinds per 
    category. One type is the more common variety and the other a little 
    rarer. Mind you this game is so easy the 'rare' foods are just as easy 
    to obtain if you play enough mini-games. I don't know if there's any 
    difference between the two varieties, please let me know if you do :)
    Mix Food: This is the most common kind and what you should be feeding 
    your hamster most often. 
    Pellets: This is the rarer version.
    Corn: Kernels of corn. What more do you want :P
    Cabbage: The rarer version. Just pieces of cabbage.
    Sunflower Seeds (SunSeeds): Every hamster's favourite, don't feed these 
    to them too often though, they're only snacks afterall. These were 
    incredibly common in my game. 
    Berries: The description of this is a little inaccurate. It should be 
    'Strawberry', because it's just one big strawberry sitting in a dish. 
    Bottled Water (BtlWater): Use these to keep your hamster's water bottle 
    Mineral Water (MnrlWater): For pampered furrballs. Yeah, even HUMANS 
    don't get to drink Evian every day. >_>
             (4.0) Pattern
    These are the items available in the Pattern menu. They're divided into 
    smaller subsections since they're quite numerous. Pattern items are 
    generally peripheral and serve to beautify your hamster's living 
    ~~ Cages ~~ 4.1 ~~
    Cages are just that, your hamster's living space. They seem quite rare 
    in terms of encountering, according to the Ubisoft website there are 
    six different kinds of cages. They vary in sizes, the default being quite 
    small. Changing your cage also changes the background music.
    	-Standard: Initial cage
    Your hamster's default home. It's just your average wire/plastic grid 
    box with a wooden house and yellow hay/wood shavings. This is a very 
    small cage.
    	-Steel: A peaceful house
    The description and upbeat background music don't really match this 
    house IMO. Like its name implies, this is a steel cage with a metallic 
    looking two level home. The walls resemble a prison cell (O_o) with 
    screw-like metal bars. I suppose it's just this industrial look... 
    	- Toy Box: A colorful house
    Remember those children's TV shows where they have these surreal and 
    colourful sets and people dressed in colourful jumpers speaking to you 
    in unnaturally cheeful tones? Oh wait, they still do that... regardless!
    This is pretty much what it's like. a very cute, brightly coloured. This
    is a fairly large, three tiered cage.
    	-Pastel: Gentle color cage
    A cutesy looking home of baby pastel colours. Before you worry about 
    your hamster falling out, it's actually surrounded by transparent panels. 
    This is quite a large cage, featuring a three tiered home.
    	-Plant: A green house
    A foresty type cage with green coloured wood shavings and little red 
    toadstools. It's not as wide as the Pastel cage, but it's definitely 
    taller with a higher three tiered tree house. 
    	-Wood Carving: A modern house
    I haven't had this one yet but Naraki tells me it's a four level cage of 
    carved wood, making this the largest cage so far.

    ~~ Decor ~~ 4.2 ~~
    Decor is found under the hamster wheel icon. This will cover everything 
    from the wheels to wallpaper. When you change your hamster's cage, you 
    may find that your water bottles and wheels don't quite match any more. 
    You will find a number of options to suit your furnishing needs here.
    Every hamster needs one to run around in. 
    	-Standard: Initial Wheel
    The default wheel. A very generic looking thing. 
    	-Flower: Wheel with petals
    A very pretty looking wheel. The petals stick out like frills. One thing 
    I've noticed though, is that the petals cut into the woodshavings floor. 
    A graphical glitch? :S
    	-Psychadelic: Pretty Colors
    A bright red wheel with a whirly hypnotic pattern in the centre. Whooo @_@ 
    Credit: funni_monkey
    	-Morning Face: Cute flower pattern
    Well, to be honest, I don't really see it as particularly flowery 
    compared to the previous wheel. It has a very attractive (but rarely 
    seen) icy blue pattern in its center though. 
    	-Yellow: A vivid color
    MY EYES. A bright yellow plastic wheel. I swear it makes my eyes bleed. 
    Goes really well with the Steel cage. 
    	-Clover: Spin for happiness
    This one features a green wheel-tread (I think they're supposed to be 
    leaves but whatever) type pattern that's kinda hypnotic to watch when 
    your hamster runs on it. 
    Water bottles. Keep an eye on these because their water levels will drop 
    as your hamster takes a drink. Fill them up with the water items in the 
    food menu. Bottles all hold the same amount of water so don't worry when 
    choosing one over the other.
    	-Standard: Initial Bottle
    The default water bottle. A nice classic option.
    	-Red Bottle: A cute round bottle
    A nice red design with circular 'windows' at the side to let you see 
    the water level. For some reason though, whenever I see it I think of
    	-Orange Bottle: Orange is cute
    To be honest, I don't think this looks much different from the default 
    bottle since orange is the central colour.
    	-Green Bottle (Btl): A striped bottle
    You know, I don't know why they had to abbreviate 'bottle' in this one 
    when the previous bottle was 'Orange' and obviously longer but managed 
    to fit the full word in. Anyway I think this is a pretty clunky looking 
    green plastic framed bottle. Definitely not one of my favourites.
    	-Blue Bottle (Btl): For climbing
    Again with the unnecessary abbreviations >:( This looks much sleeker 
    with twisting blue lines compared to the green bottle. I don't get the 
    description though, I've never seen my hamster climb it. 
    	-Ham Bottle: Hamster type
    This is undoubtedly my favourite of all the bottles. Extremely adorable 
    with hamster ears sticking out the top. 
    Wall Paper
    These change the background of the menus. I didn't even notice what these 
    changed for a minute of fiddling with them. A number of these look so 
    similar you'll barely notice the difference. All of these scroll slowly 
    in a diagonal fashion unless mentioned otherwise.
    	-Wall Paper1: Flashy yellow
    You'll start with this one. Don't be fooled by the preview pic. It's 
    actually a pale yellow background with *blue* and white dots. 
    	-Wall Paper2: Cute light green
    Same pattern, different colour. This one is pale green with blue and 
    white dots.
    	-Wall Paper3: Light blue stripes
    What the description says. Vertical strips of varying shades of light 
    blue and white. I like this one since it stands out a bit more and is 
    different from all the pink backgrounds. Doesn't scroll. 
    	-Wall Paper4: Nice color combo
    They're right. A white background with multicoloured spots. 
    	-Wall Paper5: Big polka dots
    Ooh, big spots now. And pink stars. On a pastel yellow background. 
    Anyone noticing a pattern here?
    	-Wall Paper6: Pink polka dots
    They look more like bubbles than dots. 
    	-Wall Paper7: Lots of heart marks
    Yep, pink background with pink and white hearts. It's the same colour 
    scheme as #6. It doesn't scroll. 
    ~~ Accessories ~~ 4.3 ~~
    Baubles to beautify your hamster. In truth, we all know no self 
    respecting hamster would wear half this stuff of their own free will, 
    but too bad for them! Muhahaha. Hamsters can only wear one of these at a 
    time, so there's no mix and matching of glasses and earrings or anything 
    else. I have to remark that there aren't a whole lot of accessories to 
    cater to male hamsters.
    	-Tiara: Feel like a royalty
    Yeah you read that right, 'a royalty'. Just a few examples of the less 
    than stellar translation. A silvery princess like tiara with tiny rubies 
    in the center. 
    	-Bandanna: Cool factor up!
    A red bandanna with white polka dots. It's very piratey looking.
    	-Ten Gallon Hat: A cowboy hat
    This hat looks a little wussy to be honest cause they put a green and 
    pink/purple band around it :/ Also when you look closely from behind it
    appears to be sort of floating above your hamster's head. 
    	-Visor: Good for hot days
    A little blue and white visor. Very vacation-y :D it looks especially 
    tourist-like if you stick this on your hamster's head and let him ride
    the roller-coaster.

    	-Santa Claus hat: Feel like it's Christmas!
    Festive attire. Afterall, what's a pet if you can't make it wear a santa 
    hat on Christmas? 
    	-Red Glasses: Feel smarter
    Red framed glasses. It looks like something my aunt would wear actually...
    	-Gm Glasses: Lovely glasses
    I don't know what Gm stands for. Maybe what they meant was 'Gn' short 
    for 'green' since it's green framed.
    	-Sunglasses: For sunny days
    Orange tinted lenses. These are kinda cool actually. 
    	-Spectacles: See far ahead
    Very typical swirly eyed glasses. Comical looking.
    	-Flower: A cute flower
    Girly looking pink and red ribbon with a white flower in the center.
    	-Pink Frill: Pretty Ribbon
    Another girly bow. A big one this time with white lace edging. 
    	-Blue: Pretty Ribbon
    A pair of baby blue bows set on either ear. 
    	-Headdress: Perfect maid hat
    Yes, now even you can have your very own french hamster maid! Watch it dust 
    your chair, one inch at a time... Now if only it'd clean its own cage.
    	-Ring: Cute Leather
    It looks more like metal than leather. Especially since they're supposed 
    to be earrings. Earring items aren't very visible when your hamster is 
    still a baby, but they look more obvious when it grows bigger. 
    	-Heart: Cuter then[sic] ever!
    Pink heart earrings. These are barely noticeable from the front since 
    they're almost the exact same shade as the inner pink of your hamster's 
    	-Ruby: Sparkly ears
    Gold earrings with rubies.
    Credit: Naraki Imani
    	-Star: Be invincible
    No points for guessing the reference. Yellow star-shaped earrings.
    	-Leather: Tough hamster!
    Don't be fooled by this description. This isn't some biker costume.
    The black leather cap, the dark aviator glasses...It's a tribute 
    to Japanese wrestler and comedian, Masaki Sumitani AKA Razor Ramon HG! 
               (5.0) Toys
    Toys to play with your hamster. These aren't the same as the games. 
    Place one of these in the cage and watch your hamster figure out what to 
    do (which can take a while). It can react to a toy in a variety of ways, 
    starting with a blinking question mark and then hesitant attempts to play 
    with the item, and then actually playing with it. You can interact with 
    most of the toys as well but it's pretty pointless unless your hamster 
    knows what the toy is for. Once your hamster has learned a particular 
    action involved with a certain toy, it may repeat the same actions when 
    experimenting with new ones. You can only have one toy out at a time and 
    some of them need bigger cages to be played with.
    	-Gnawing Tree: Raises your spirit
    It looks like a heart shaped blocked of wood... or a biscuit. Either way 
    your hamster just chews on it to start. 
    	-Pipe: Fun to crawl in
    I hoped to be able to connect the pipes, but that's not possible, so you 
    just get a clear plastic t-junction pipe that your hamster crawls in and 
    out of. 
    	-Large (Lrg) Ball: Roll, ride, have fun!
    My hamster hasn't started rolling it yet, but it jumps on this big 
    colourful soccer ball. 
    	-Baseball: Be a baseball star
    A blue coloured baseball. Your hamster will ask to play catch with it.
    	-Barrel: What's inside? 
    A large wooden barrel with a hamster face printed on one side. For 
    jumping in and out of. I swear, I have so many of these for some reason. 
    	-Balloon: Try blowing it up!
    I haven't seen my hamster inflate the balloon. But I've seen it do 
    something it learned from below... 
    Update: You can blow the balloon up yourself via the mic! If you blow
    on it too much it'll burst but don't worry, it'll be back in your
    inventory. Credit: Erinclem
    	-Hamster Wand: Try to wave it!
    This is the freakiest toy ever. Honestly. It stands upright and looks 
    like a bizarre coconut tree when left alone. If you wave it and shake it 
    around, your hamster learns this creepy tribal-esque dance involving 
    weird arm-waving actions. Let your *hamster* play with it and it waves 
    and tosses this huge wand that's like more than twice its length around. 
    It actually looks kinda scary, like it's summoning some pagan hamster god
    or something. 
    	-Slide: Move to a new floor
    This needs a big cage, preferably the Pastel cage or any of the bigger 
    ones. This is a very cute rainbow slide that acts like a short cut 
    between the third floor and the ground floor. Your hamster just hops on 
    and slides down. What's cute is when your hamster isn't used to the slide 
    yet. It'll approach the edge and then wave its arms in an 
    'omg no way O_O' fashion. 
    	-Roller Coaster: Ride around
    This also needs a big cage. It's a small roller coaster ride that your 
    hamster can ride (screaming all the way down no less!). Just like the slide, 
    if your hamster isn't used to it, it will go "no way @_@". When riding the 
    roller coaster the first few times, your hamster will stagger around for 
    a bit haha.

    	-Flower: Try a flower fortune?
    Just the expected 'he loves me, loves me now' thing. It's reusable so 
    don't worry when your hamster's done pulling off all the petals. 
    	-Xylophone: Pretty sounds
    A U-shaped xylophone set. When first introduced to it, your hamster may 
    fall over in surprise after tapping it once. Later on it may start 
    playing longer 'tunes'. Tunes being the loose term to describe the noise 
    it makes. 
             (6.0) Credits
