I'm looking for some new toys for my bunny, Kodo. He is a baby and is fairly small, he gets bored pretty easily. are there any toys that any of you buy that keep your bunny happily entertained? Do you make any out of things like toilet paper rolls or wood blocks? plz respond and help me find a toy that make kodo happy. thanks

Smudge love it when I stuff "special" hay (Like orchard grass) into a TP tube for him. He also loves sticks and balls made out of willow branches, an olod litter box full of shredded paper, cardboard, aspen shavings, hay and apple tree sticks that he can dig in, and a cardboard tunnel I made him. Most rabbits LOVE anything they can eat, so putting their favorite food some where so they have to find it and work a little to get it is pretty entertaining for them.

My rabbits all time favorite toy is cardboard boxes! We collect all the cardboard boxes that we get from getting stuff delivered to the house, and even have a few friends who donate their boxes to us.

I use the boxes to make them things like tunnels, and box forts. They have a great time hiding in the boxes, sleeping in them, chewing them up. When they get old and destroyed, I just throw them away and replace them.

With my bunnies other toys, I rotate them once a week so they don't get too bored with them. They have balls with bells, wooden toys they can chew, balls, rattles, stuff like that. One of my boys loves this plastic ball that has a bell in it. They all really like toys made out of unpeeled willow, but those never last long before they get destroyed.

You can put hay and a few treats into a toilet paper roll and give him that. If you have any really small boxes, you can close them up with treats inside.

My bunny has toilet paper rolls stuffed with hay and plastic balls with bells in them and cardboard tunnels, willow balls. i think he just has a very short attention span. i like the idea of rotating the toys once a week. i will give it a try. Thanks

My rabbits like a toy called "Slim Cat". It is a plastic ball with holes in it. You open the ball and put their food pellets in it. To get their food out, they have to roll it around until the pellets fall out of the holes.

I have a toy like that. Not the same exact one but it's the same concept .

Sakura especially liked it and would roll it around the house:

I got Smudge one of those Slim Cat toys at FleetFarm, and I think he likes it! I showed him that food comes out of it, and he started nosing it a little, so Im pretty sure he gets the concept of it.


What do you usually put in it though? I put some pellets in it and a couple papya treats, but I cant think of much else to put in it and I dont want ot overload him with junk food.
