Your list sounds pretty good. Not sure mine would take a sand bath but might be worth a shot. Also I found that instead of buying toys mine were happier destroying things I had around the house or could make. I gave them toilet paper rolls (a definite favorite), construction paper buildings and old socks. They pretty much chewed up everything in record time so I didn't see much point in spending money on things. Good luck! Gerbils make awesome pets!!
