Please do not allow your male and female to have any playtime, not even supervised. Female hedgehogs are induced ovulators which means they come into heat every time they are in close contact with a male. Every time you let them have playtime she is coming into heat. Having this happen over and over again is very bad for her physical health and can lead to long term health issues. It also is very frustrating for a male to be close to a female and not be able to breed. This can lead to behavioural issues.
