I like Ka-bobs, you can buy it and add more wooden toys to them, and arrange them the way you want and then hang it in the cage, my chins have four in various locations. When the wood is gone I just replace it. Also mine like the Big Branch Bites. (You can get all these from Petco or Petsmart) My female also likes her stuffed animals. I buy her little cat toys and take all the tags, tails, whiskers (etc.) off before I give it to her. Her favorite thing to do is drag a stuffed toy all the way to the top of her cage (5') and drop it and watch it fall, then go back down and get it drag it back to the top and watch it fall. My male has no interest in stuffed toys except for to cuddle with them.

There is no one TRUE way

Wheels and wood chew toys are the best. There are lots of sites that sell them online, or you can make your own. But make sure you use a safe kind of wood (like untreated pine). No plastic either.

My chins also like the jump on lots of ledges or munch on hay from a hay rack. That can keep them entertained too.

We have a wheel, a wooden bird toy that hangs from the top of the cage, and three wooden ledges for her to stand on/climb on, a hammock, and an igloo.

I don't think there's room for anything else in Pikachu's cage, lol.

A lot of chins like willow balls you could try that. The best place to order is http://mysticmosaics.org/index.html. She has a bunch of really cool toys and other stuff too.

If you wanna save money paper towel rolls keep Hailey busy all day. She drags them up her cage and pushes them down. She also has a big fluffy towel that she likes to move and hide under. She loves her kaabobs and igloo and ledges too.

You can actually stuff hay in the toilet paper roll, it will make it more interesting and fun. I also cut them up into different sizes and hide them around the cage, sometimes I will break their hay blocks up and hide them too. Just like feeding time at the zoo. Gotta make things interesting and fun for the critters. LOL!
