Treat Tumbler1

5/5
Treat ball rabbit toy

This toy is great entertainment and exercise for your bunny who will soon get the idea that by nudging the toy around a steady supply of treats will fall out. It has an adjustable opening so you can control how quickly the food comes out. Our rabbit has a Trixie Plastic Snack BallNiteangel Treat Ball and when it has treats in it his always chasing it about. The only problem with it is it does tend to get lost under furniture some times.

Tunnel warren2

4/5
Tunnel warren rabbit toy

If your rabbit likes exploring then they will love a tunnel warren that has three tunnels that join in the middle. You can get these in a variety of styles from simple three way tunnels like the Trixie Play Tunnel for RabbitsProsper Collapsible 3 Way Play Toy systems you can join together. Although they are quite large like regular activity tunnels you can pack them away neatly so you can pack them away when not needed. We love the ones with peep holes in the side and middle so we can see what our bunnyies are up to an and can pop some treats inside in to make it even more fun.

Our verdict

Lots more fun and a bit more stable then a simple tunnel.

Treat forage challange3

3/5
Rabbit forage toy

Its natural for rabbits to want to forage for food and these toy can keep there interest sniffing out the treats, they also help make the treats go a lot further. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes and we prefer the ones made from natural materials specifically for rabbits like the Rosewood Maze-a-Log Treat ChallengeSlow-Feeding Feeder Bowlrather then the tough plastic types that seem more tailed for dogs. We had a bunny that used to chew its enclosure when we went to bed so we used to drop some treats in one of these to keep him distracted till everything settled down.

Wooden peg game4

3/5
wooden hide toss rabbit toy

Wooden hidden treat toys are great for bunnies that like to forage and toss things about. They are typically made from a block of wood with cups cut into it that have pegs over the top of them so your rabbit will have to pull these out to get to the treats. We much prefer these to the plastic versions of these toys as they are a bit heavier which is good and unlike the plastic type make less noise. They also look great like the Rosewood Small Animal Activity ToyKaytee Toss and Learn Carrot Game which has little corn carrots your bunny can play with.

Our verdict

Great for rabbits that like to toss toys about.

Log Roll5

3/5
Yucca chew rabbit toy

These chew toy are typically made from all natural dried yucca or wood with cavities cut in it that can be filled with treats to make it more interesting. The most popular choice we found was the Rosewood Boredom BreakerBunny Blast Yucca Chew Toy. Your rabbit will enjoy rolling it about, munching the treats and chewing the soft woody material. It’s a solid toy that you can leave out and will still be fun when the treats have all gone.

Our verdict

Great for rolling, tossing and of cause chewing.

Plastic logic toys6

3/5
Hidden treat rabbit-toy

Hidden treat toys are great for clever bunnies. These plastic toys typically contain pegs that can be pulled out or slid in a groove to reveal hidden goodies. We have a Living World 3-in-1 Teach-n-Treat Interactive ToyLiving World Teach N Treat Toy some of our smaller rabbits have liked playing with these however we found they mostly got ignored it. We tried it on out on our Continental Giant, he simply smash it on the floor until all the treats fell out so we had to take it away from him much to his disappointment! The plastic can get noisy so given the choice a more natural wooden peg toy would be a better buy.

Our verdict

Great for rabbits that like take their time exploring.

Forage toy 7

3/5
Rabbit forage hay toy

Forage toys are a cheap and easy way of giving you rabbit something that will keep them occupied and encourage them to eat something healthy as well. They are typically made like a lot of common woven hay toys or cardboard toys and stuffed with hay and other tasty dried wild herbs and flowers that come inside or that you can stuff yourself like the ROSEWOOD Naturals I Love Hay Forage CubePeter's Woven Grass Play Ball. They can be a bit messy especially if your rabbit can push them around so you may be better with something you can hang in one spot. We have a solid block as we like to refill it with more expensive hay we buy as a treat to stop it being wasted.

Our verdict

A great way of making eating more hay fun

A simple toy you can make that will keep your rabbit busy is to pack toilet rolls inside one so they are wedged in but still leave some gaps. Then treats can be pushed inside the folds in the ends. This toy is as much fun for your rabbit as a shop bought treat tumbler or forage toy and you rabbit will enjoy tossing it about as well..

Cardboard mase9

2/5
Cardboard rabbit maze

Cardboard box mazes can be a great way of keeping your rabbit entertained as well as giving them something to nibble. They are make of simple sheets of cardboard that you slot together so give you a big toy for your rabbit to play in and around. We don’t think out rabbit cares what they look like so prefer mazes that don’t have much ink on it like the Daves A-mazesEnvirosmart Smartkitz Cardboard Pet Castle as we don’t want out rabbit to eat this. This is a great toy for smaller rabbits, if you have a larger rabbit they may prefer a cardboard castle. If you don’t mind something a little less stylish however you may want just get a nice cardboard box as you rabbit will probably like this just as much.

Our verdict

Great fun especially for smaller rabbits.
