Most rabbit owners are amazed to learn how playful their pets are. The majority of rabbits will enjoy a variety of fun and easy toys like a cardboard box or a soft towel roll.
Toys help you physically keep your rabbit active and stop boredom. A dull rabbit may become more destructive or even depressed, overweight, or worse. Without toys, your rabbit can turn to your furniture and other things as chew toys or even dangerous stuff like power cables. Try a range of toys to find out what your rabbit is enjoying and keep providing new toys regularly.
Although a good selection of toys helps keep your rabbit away from the things that you don’t want them to chew on, the toys that you provide must also be safe. If your rabbit wants to eat one kind of toy (for instance, plastic, carton, etc.), try to switch to another to avoid problems. Check for soft rubber products or plastic parts that may be ingested and cause gastrointestinal or blockage issues and ensure that your rabbit doesn’t ingest shredding paper and cardboard.
