Rabbit toys: 8 best options for chewing, foraging, and navigating – DodoWell

Rabbits are preoccupied with little bees when it comes to chewing, nibbling, and exploring new areas. So it’s no wonder rabbit parents are constantly on the lookout for new toys that will prevent bunny boredom from creeping in.

After reading the reviews and doing your research, we have found some of the best rabbit toys that will keep your rabbit entertained for hours on end. There are so many great options on this list that your rabbit might be overwhelmed with all the good things you get!

The best rabbit toys should be made of safe and edible materials and should stimulate your rabbit to naturally chew, jump, hide and forage.

How to find the best rabbit game

Here are some shopping considerations to keep in mind when choosing the perfect toy for your rabbit.

The toy must be made of natural, edible materials

Your rabbit will chew and nibble on these toys, so you need to make sure that they are made of safe materials that are okay to eat. Some of the materials that are safe for rabbits are:

  • Alfalfa: This is a natural plant that rabbits can eat and is often a large part of young rabbits’ meals. It should not be given in large quantities to older rabbits, as they need more fiber in their daily diet, but it is okay to give them as part of a toy.
  • Seaweed: Another safe and natural fiber, seaweed can be woven into a variety of different rabbit toys and is well suited for rabbits to eat.
  • Wood: Natural, unfinished, untreated wood is a great material for rabbits that are happy to chew. Apple, ash, birch, hawthorn, hazel, juniper, maple, pear, poplar, fir, and willow wood are all acceptable for rabbits to chew and swallow.
  • Cardboard: As long as the cardboard does not contain ink and is non-toxic, your rabbit can chew and get spoiled. Make sure your rabbit does not swallow a lot of cardboard, as this could be harmful to his digestive system.

The toy should stimulate chewing, hiding, jumping or searching for food

Great toy should make your rabbit take advantage of his natural instincts. Rabbits love to chew, tear, and nibble everything and anything, so a toy with a great natural texture will inspire him to chew.

Larger toys may stimulate the rabbit’s instinct to hide (it can climb into tunnels or small houses) or jump (larger moving toys are fun to jump in and around).

Some toys will allow your rabbit to search for forage. You can either hide candy in it, or there can be a variety of different stimuli in one game that inspire your rabbit to explore and find food and goodies.

The price should reflect the quality and how long you expect the game to last

If you are investing in a larger, higher priced item, make sure it is something that will last for a while. Rabbits love to chop and nibble things, so a wood toy will last longer than a grass or cardboard toy, and so may cost more money.

Small edible toys should only cost a few dollars because if they are successful with your rabbit, they will not last long.

Consider size too

Are you looking for a toy that fits in your rabbit’s cage to keep him occupied while he is safely indoors? Or are you looking for a toy he can play with while he’s out on the living room floor? If your toy has size restrictions based on where your rabbit will play, be sure to take measurements before purchasing to get the perfect fit.

Variety is good for active rabbits

If you find that your rabbit tires of playing easily, you may want to choose a variety of rabbit toys. You can find kits that come with toys made of different materials that will help your rabbit stay interested and occupied for longer periods of time.
