At The Pet Glider, we get a lot of queries if sugar gliders would make great furry buddies for kids, but itâ¤™s not just a simple answer. These adorable creatures can make wonderful pet for responsible children. A sugar gliderâ¤™s size, however, also makes sugar glider accessories necessary and important in keeping them safe and happy.One of the endearing features of a sugar glider is their small size, and that they can snuggle up in your pocket.
