another idea....

get him a remote controled car with a little hamster teddie in it, he can then race it around the ward just to keep his passion going... well thats the just the humour and boredom part and once hes finished with it willow or izzy can nick it... also did do a Very Very rough drawing at work, which could kinda be spray painted on the back of a helmet...alot more better than that but im just visually giving an idea.

little image of it...

and the url of it if you wanna see up close..

I think the poll makes it pretty clear what we should do.

Good. Viper should try and make contact with a professional airbrush artist asap and make the order. This has to be delivered before Friday imo...

We gotta come up with the colors and stuff though... I personally don't care as long as it won't look like like the hair of an ecstacy popping dutch raver.

I love the helmet idea, only thing is we need to find out what head size he is! I like the idea of a black or a blue helmet with the image that wooflepoof has come up with (in colour of course!) printed on it

Thats what I was trying to put down but really couldnt lol... Very good cartoon picture, lovin the eyes and teeth , defo airbrush artist.
usually they probably will keep to a base idea but also put a little twist on it also.
But Im all for the helmet, Hammond would defo use it, both for his motorbike and also on the show.
I agree with maximus black background with black shield on the front , then the picture maybe with the name in his fav colour?

If we could fit a slogan on somewhere, how about "I AM THE HAMSTER" in the same font as "I AM THE STIG"?

I'd say let's not skimp on the helmet quality (in case he actually wants to use it) and go for the more expensive one.
(That Peltor one looks better anyway.)

How do we find out Hamster's helmet size?

So we are going for an open helmet? I've sent away a few emails to the official Top Gear addresses, but I assume that they are flooded now so we need to find another way...

And he probably has a whole bunch of bike-helmets... So I guess we're going for an open one then. Wise decision probably, and secondly, I have a feeling he's not too eager to hop into a rocket car anytime soon anyways.
