The Hamtaro Wiki

The Hambini (ちびちゃんず) are three young, mischievous hamsters. They appear in Hamtaro: Rainbow Rescue and in some of the Japanese episodes.

They are not to be confused with the Chibi Hams, who are also referred to as "Hambini" in the English dub.

Character description

The Hambini are a group of triplets; two with gray fur, one with light-brown fur. They are owned by a nice woman, who they look up to as their mother. Often times, however, their 'mama' drops them off at Doctor Lion's clinic for caretaking, as she is too busy to supervise them. They are younger than most of the other hamsters - practically infants - and as a result, they get along well with Penelope.

In their first appearance in the anime, the trio sneaks into Hamtaro's house. They were racing around the living room and causing mischief; due to the other Harunas not noticing them, Hamtaro was blamed for the Hambini's actions. After they spent a night-and-day at the Clubhouse, the other Ham-Hams were exposed to just how out-of-control they really are - Boss especially.

At one point, while they were playing, the Hambini began to cry; they missed their mother, and wanted to see her again. Eventually, Flora meets up with the Ham-Hams, and explains that the Hambini ran away from Doctor Lion's clinic. Flora returns them to the clinic, and the Hambini are finally reunited with their owner. The Hambini return in a few later episodes, generally being babysit by Flora and the Ham-Hams.

Notable Episodes

Trivia

  • When Hamtaro is seen as a baby in Our Biggest Memories!, his eyes resemble those of the Hambini, presumably to make him look younger.
  • In Italian, they are called the Mini-Mini. In French, they are called the Tim-Ham.
