What Kinds of Toys Do Rabbits Like? | Pet Rabbits



so we're gonna talk about bunny toys today and I brought some of my favorites and I see you've brought some of your favorite yes I did and I brought my favorite toy at home bean bean beans a cute purse right netherland dwarf netherland dwarf looks like a wild rabbit but he's not and we'll talk about that later okay so what do you do for toys alright this is something well first of all my rabbits obsessed with these little Beachcomber straw hats you just plop it on the floor and they'll chew it here's one that she she's not quite finished with here but sometimes it just is completely gone and then I'm – like that you want it will she go through the entire thing the entire so completely disappeared you want to make sure it's not treated right yeah if you can with any straw toys some imports have bug sprays on them or other kinds of little chemicals that you might want to avoid and it's best to try to find untreated ones although people have told me that they've bought the sprayed ones because of a regulation of importing into the u.s. that they have to be sprayed with no ill effects on their rabbits I try to find untreated ones myself okay to be safe now here's one that I like and make it home what you do is you just need a toilet paper two pair of scissors and you're gonna fringe the edges because this gives them a little what do you call it like that resistance it gets them a little play there's a little play in the cardboard that way so it's not quite so stiff right so that they can access what's going to go into it a little more easily I'm guessing you're going to stuff it the way we do right and then you kind of do the edges like this see so this is fine this is fun and then you just fill it with your favorite hey can be a treat hey you want to use like this is Timothy okay here you don't have to use timothy hay but any grass hay is a good alternative timothy is a grass hay little dynamite stick see and then you just throw that around and I mean hay will go all over your apartment but you know people if you're a rabbit you don't really care and then you just play I mean it really it's it's a lot of fun you want to play with it and you can use paper towel rolls too if you want yeah on paper towel right things we have here we have slinky which is great a lot of rabbits love to grab the end of a slinky and toss it around one thing you want to be really careful about and this is a good rabbit to show it with this size slinky and this size rabbit could be bad combination and that's why we're showing this a smaller slinky is better for a smaller rabbit because this size rabbit can get his head into the slinky for many rabbits that won't matter but some rabbits will panic when they get their head into a slinky and they don't back out so you want to be careful about the size and make it appropriate to the size of the rabbit and what about metal versus just plastic one I like plastic ones myself I know some people have used metal ones but I like plastic ones they're much more visible to me on the floor so that I don't step on them when a rabbits on the floor playing with them and also oatmeal sometimes people take out the sides of the oatmeal you know canisters and your rabbit and get stuck in that to its any canister the rabbit a rabbit will like to play inside a canister but you have to be really careful about panic a rabbit can panic when he feels cornered this bunny right now for example is choosing to go into this nice little willow tunnel which is great many rabbits like to hide in tunnels but if this had a closed end on the other side and he didn't back out he could panic in there so we try to be pretty careful about that and also you can fill this with hay again right since they have a little hay in order to eat as well and on plastic keys your baby toys are great my rabbit always picks his stuff and tosses it across the room when she needs me they love them like a dinner bell yeah this is another kind of toy we really like it's it's a nest of straw or I don't know what this is whether it's willow or not but it's like those Russian boxes those Russian doll boxes one inside the other you can see the sizes here and you can actually give the bunny the whole stack clothes like that and especially if it's a bigger rabbit they will jump in they'll remove the cover of this one then remove the cover of this one yeah these are really great then you've got the little any kayne little straw little anything possible possible and it's funny because we talked about rabbits playing look what's going on here yes thank youing the cardboard they're talking about rabbits playing with toys they're not actually playing in the sense that kids play but they love to manipulate objects in their environment and and plus they love like resistance and they like like your baseboards and wire so this gives them a nice option yeah and well we'll talk about bunny proofing too but that raises a good point which is that rabbits love to chew against resistance so they like wood that does yield 1,001 hmm anything so what I did what I had to do in my apartment after I saw my woodwork getting destroyed was I went out and I bought furring strips and I just tacked them over the woodwork and now all the firing strips are chewed and I don't have to worry about the woodwork anymore so that's that works go ace Toys Toys amen

  1. I got my three bunnies nice, expensive toys but hands down their favorite toys are cardboard boxes that they can dig in and destroy

  2. I have a question. I have a female and male holland lop bunnies. they are about 5 mos old. I am getting my male neutered tomorrow. After that can I put him right back in with the female or does he need to be separated for awhile while healing? I will ask my vet questions but I love your channel and believe you are very knowledgable. Any suggestions I would greatly appreciate.. Thank you so much for all your help. Blessings on your day!!

  3. This is my favourite SNL skit. Kate McKinnon is always hilarious in this bit as Barbara DeDrew, & I love the guest appearance from Kristen Wiig.

  4. i got one not really domesticated and one totally not domesticated rabbit. We got the totally not domesticated one from some Animal carestation that had one of their male rabbits escape and produce a lot of offspring. And because these little ones had no chance of growing up to live in the wild they had to give them away. so now, they both live a very happy live in my 11×6^2 room

  5. I love how he crunches those round pellets..do you use any particular brand? My Bun is a little bored with his rod-shaped pellets..

  6. The toilet paper roll toy actually really worked for my bunny! I bought her two other toys from petsmart and she payed no attention to them. I give her the roll and she throws it all over the place, takes a break, and then goes back to playing around with it. Thanks for the suggestion!
