Chin Play Time

Does anyone have any suggestions for how to play with a chinchilla while their out of their cage? I lay on the floor and mine will come up to me and he stares at me like he wants me to do something, but I don't how to entertain him. Any good toys, like whiffle balls, that they will chase around?

I find that w/my Chin that he will entertain himself and have fun. I sit or lay on the floor w/him and he runs around like crazy and explores the 'safe area' i make him. They enjoy cardboard boxes to climb into and on top of. you can have fun and hide a treat and send them on a 'hunt' to find where you hid it

Thanks for the suggestion. He's still a baby, but he's learning how to "wall surf" its pretty fun to watch. Do they enjoy toys like ferrets do?

Mine generally entertain themselves pretty well... i just keep an eye on them to make sure they dont get through my chinchillla proofing.....and get into stuff they shouldnt. I think its an on-going competition we have? to see who is smarter ;-) I have a couch in my room and they love to play on that? haha... kinda an expensive toy They like it when i leave boxes laying around Mine would be rather confused if i tried to play fetch or what not with them probably.... but ya never know, yours may like it? Oh! and mine love it when i bring company over

Cool

I have a play pin for my two, and they love it! They pretty much entertain themselves I put a wooden house sorta thing in there and they hide and jump on it, plus a few of their chew toys but they just like running around. But I use a play pin because I have no room I can chin proof for them to play in.
