Toys, Toys, Toys

Gucci stretching up after a wiffle ball play session

Do you put toys in your rabbit cages? My rabbits adore having creative toys and objects to keep their minds amused and entertained. I have one doe in my barn who makes a point to run and jump and leap against one of those wire hay balls hung from the top of the cage. It has a bell on the end and she loves the noise. She makes sure to slam against it every morning when I walk into the barn to feed, to alert all the rest of the rabbits. It's hilarious!

Every rabbit has a different toy in their cage. Most also have linked toy chains hanging from the tops of their cages. I get these in the baby aisle at your local Target, Walmart, etc. type store. I usually get a bunch for under $5. Browse discount stores, Dollar Treet, etc. I get plastic wiffle balls in multi colors at the Dollar store. 5 for a dollar! And they are the larger size so they can really get into rolling them around the cage.

My findings after a day of discount shopping! Creative thinking!


  1. All my rabbits love toys too! I need to get new ones for them soon. Thinking of something with bells. Gucci having his major molt?

  2. Gucci is a doe actually, and has never quite had the wool I would want from her. So no, no moult! Though she does look a little loose in wool along her hindquarters.

    I feel like I need to make some new toy purchases too!
