1 'IQ' toys

3.3/5

Average price $14

You should never underestimate a rabbits intelligence especially if it involves treats. IQ toys are great for the type of bunnies that like to get into things. They normally contain some sort of pegs that can be pulled out or that slides across to reveal hidden goodies. They can be loaded up and you can leave them to allow you rabbit curiosity to build up enough to play with it. Don't expect all rabbits to like these as the reaction could be from totally ignoring it to simply smashing it about to get the treats out. Living World Teach N Treat Toy

2 Ball with a bell

3.3/5

Average price $5

Balls with bells in them are normally make of a tough plastic material although you can get other types make from wire and even woven grass or willow. They can be batted across the room or picked up and tossed about. Be careful to check its for rabbits like the Ball with Bell as they can also be deigned for cats and can be made of soft material that can be chewed and do harm. If you have a smaller bread of rabbit make sure its not to big so you bunny can pick it up and toss it about easily. They tend to get rolled to the edge of the room or under furniture where it will be ignored. A good game to play is to place a toilet roll tube on its end and balance the ball on top then see how long you bunny can last before it feel compelled to knock it over.

4 Willow and Grass Balls

2.8/5

Average price $7

Rabbits love chewing on woven balls because they can easily get their teeth into them and roll them about the room. These toys can come in a variety of other shapes although round balls are the most fun. Make sure you get one from a pet supplier such as the Ware Willow Branch Ball and not a home decoration product as they can be treated with varnishes or fire preventions chemicals that can be harmful to your rabbit if digested. Our rabbit loves willow balls and we prefer them to the grassy variety as they make less mess. We often have to hide them away after a bit if our rabbit takes a keen interest in them to make them last a bit longer.

Final verdict

"A favourite for flinging about and chewing, so much fun they often don't last very long!"

5 Corn carrots

2.8/5

Average price $11

Primarily designed as a toss toy these toys will get their fair share of chewing as well. The corn leaf they are made of is very tough and the natural glues and dies mean you don't have to worry about them being left out permanently as they will last a long time and are safe. They also come with a rattle in them to make them more fun. Superpet Bunny Flip N Toss Carrot (Pack of 3) >. The only down side to them is they don't hold interest for very long so you may want to buy a variety and swap them over occasional or they will eventual be ignored.

6 Barbells

2.7/5

Average price $6

Wooden barbells are a cheap and fun toy for your rabbit to fling about and chew. You can find a variety of them in stores including some with a bell inside. They are a great alternative to help distract your rabbit from chewing on other fibrous materials you don't want them to eat such as wooden furnature, Base boards and carpet. Ware Natural Woven Willow Barbell We like these more than simple wooden blocks as they are easier to pick up and toss about which means they get played more.

7 Treat tumbler

2.7/5

Average price $12

Toys that you can hide food inside always provide great entertainment and exercise for bunnies. They soon get the idea that by nudging the toy around and a constant supply of treats comes out. You can fill the ball with a variety of nibbles such as pellet food, treats and even bits of fruit and vegetables, you can adjust the opening to control how quickly the food comes out depending on its size. Ensure its specificity for rabbits like the Snack Ball as they are also available for dogs and cats and these may not be suitable.

8 Grass ball with bell

2.2/5

Average price $4.50

Rabbits love playing with woven grass balls and if you don't mind putting up with some noise then a ball with a bell in it like the Trixie Grass Ball with Bell is even more fun. Keep in mind that if you rabbit likes chewing then it may not be long before it is destroyed so if you are looking for more of a rattle and less of a chew toy then maybe choose a wooden or plastic ball with a bell in it.

9 Willow Chew Sticks

2.2/5

Average price $6

Rabbits enjoy fresh willow sticks, starting by chewing the soft bark and eventually eating the soft wood inside. There are many different types of willow or apple wood treats available that you can buy from pet stores and they come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Always get a product from a pet store such as Ware Natural Willow Mega Munch Sticks not a home decoration as these can be harm to your rabbit. Our rabbit likes the thinner sort as they seem easier to chew up and we found we could make them even more appealing by pushing them through the sides of a toilet roll tube. This helps makes more of a toy out of it and also keeps them together and off the floor.

10 Wooden chew toys

0.5/5

Average price $15

There are quite a few types this toy, they are typically made of a hard wooden material that is brightly coloured and come on their own, on a ring or are in some way held together with string. They are typicaly quite cheap but you can get more expensive ones like the Fruit Basket Rabbit Throw Toys (Set of Three) although this may not offer much value for money as you may find it only takes your rabbit a shirt while to become bored of this and discard it at the edge of the room.
