Enrichment - Recreation
Physical and mental stimulation are important to the well-being of all small animals. We offer a small selection of items here, but have found that the majority of commercial "toys" are made from questionable materials and have been imported from even more questionable sources. (Read more about that here.)
For that reason, piggy owners may want to consider a "DIY" approach to toys. We have compiled a few helpful tips/suggestions for making your own toys here. We do offer several Timali toys on our site, and have found them to be safer alternatives to the majority of commercial items. You can read about the materials they use here.
Another website that we really like and can recommend for small animal enrichment products is Small Critter & Rabbit Toys. And of course don't forget that hay and natural treats such as fruit or veggies can be presented in ways that encourage foraging and fun.
As with anything in your cavy's cage, remember: Safety First! Always inspect any toy or item for signs of wear/damage or excessive soiling, and remove anything that could cause illness or injury.
