What advice can you give me on buying both girl and boy hamsters?

I want to buy both male and female hamsters for my children, is it safe to put them in the same cage.

Well all I can say is unless you want alot of hamsters or you are going to sell them or give them away I would buy seperate cages for the boys and the girls as hamsters mate alot and have alot of babies. Just buy 2 cages and seperate them unless you want alot of them.

Be careful about getting two hamsters together like that. You'll wake up to a litter of 20 hamsters one day. They reproduce like fruit flies.

Hamsters in general need to be raised together from birth, or they will not get along in the same cage. And unless you want to have baby hamsters, you should not put a male and female together.

Pick one sex or the other if you're putting them in the same cage. A Male and Female will breed like a mouse and will have a TON of babies.
