Thread: Toy making materials, which are safe?

    Default Toy making materials, which are safe?

    Hi all, my godson is coming over one day to make bunny toys out of some poplar that has been ‘pre-stripped’ (thx Celly and Poppet]. I’m looking for suggestions for rabbit safe rope/twine, joining materials, glues etc so we can turn these half nibbled sticks into fun things for the bunnies. Any ideas on the safest materials to use? Thanks all xx

    Sisal rope would be ideal and it's relatively cheap stuff too by the looks of it - wish I had an artistic side, will u post some photos once done?

    He'd still do a better job than me! You could also use cable ties if you have any of those lying around and sure you can make animal friendly glue with flour and water or similar (you'll need to research that). Could also use good old toilet/ kitchen tubes and make them a bridge to go under. Am I getting too into this?...

    Child safe glues are fine to use with buns - just use the smallest amount possible.

    Sisal rope is great - I've got some laying around which I got to make toys with.... I've only used a tiny amount.
    Same as Sisal string - avoid cotton as it's too thin and causes problems if ingested.

    Carbored is GREAT for making toys for your bun ! Simple things like toilet tubes can be turned into something like this ......

    Thanks all, I’ve gone with the sisal rope. I’m cutting the poplar branches into chunks then drilling them and dying with nontoxic food dyes, the rope will be perfect to string them into wired and wonderful structure xx
