    Hi everyone,
    I've recently became a butler to two beautiful bunnies. Chris a Netherland dwarf, and Opal a new zealand mix. They are both healthy and happy. But I can't seem to find any toys that will interest them. I hate to see them so bored in the house all the time. I was hoping to get some ideas on which toys to buy for them. They get bored fast and Opal tries to eat everything. I need toys to keep them engaged mentally and physically.

    treat balls are good as only drop a pellet at a time but they have to work for it. Hide fresh or dried herbs/weds all over their area so they need to search for them. Apple/pear Sticks are good for teeth and to keep busy.

    When you say in the house, do you mean they have access to a whole rabbit-proofed room?

    Rabbits are grazing animals and are happy to spend lots of time munching on their hay, so loads of hay and something to hide in. My rabbits like to sit in their litter trays eating the hay, and they like to sit in the sun.

    I agree with Apple or Pear sticks, in fact any sticks from rabbit-safe trees are excellent. They are good for enrichment and also for their digestion.
