Rabbits need safe ways to exercise and play, which helps keep their body AND mind healthy. Digging, chewing, climbing, throwing, hiding, running through tunnels - all these are things that rabbits like, want and need to do. To keep your pet entertained and healthy, you can provide them with a variety of toys. Items to play or throw, such as untreated straw, wicker, seagrass mats and baskets, plastic balls and flower pots are great for rabbits.
Solid plastic baby toys, such as “key rings”, rattles, stackable cups and some sturdy toys for cats and parrots can also be good toys for rabbits. In general, rabbits like to play with toys that they can chew, dig or throw. Cardboard, twig balls, apple sticks and natural toys based on hay are often the favorites of domestic rabbits. Rabbits also often enjoy hanging mobile toys and throwing hard plastic toys for babies.
The Niteangel Small Animal Trio of Fun Balls activity toy is a perfect example of a healthy toy that encourages exercise. It's a three-pack that uses seagrass, water hyacinths and rattan to create three durable toys. There are no glues to worry about, and you can fill the tissue ball with healthy treats. The SunGrow Natural Portable Grass Rabbit Bed is a perfect example of a safe and non-toxic bed that will keep your pet busy for several days. Uses 100% woven grass that is firm but chewable.
Kaytee Crinkle Tunnel's oversized crisp tube can be stretched to 23 inches and creates a crackling noise that your pet will enjoy. You can even extend the tunnel if you want. Our rabbits loved this toy, and they instinctively look for it when they leave their cage. The only downside is that our rabbits bit her, so we had to keep an eye on them. Some of our rabbits were also too big for this toy. Getting a lot of toys at once is ideal when you're having trouble finding toys that your rabbit likes to play with.
Plastic puzzle toys and habitat toys that aren't designed to be eaten by rabbits are the only products that don't come from one of these three sources. The Kaytee Chew & Rabbit Toy Assortment is an adorable example of wooden chew toys that will keep your pet entertained for several days. Hanging toys can make a rabbit more curious about its environment, making it more likely to play with its new toy. Keep toys clean with mild soap and water, and replace or change them frequently to keep your rabbit interested.
