Smile Looking for new toys/boredom breakers

I know you say that you check p@h, but do you have one of these? It's my hamster's favourite and lasts for ages.

Otherwise, you could make some boredom breakers yourself. For example, you can make make a sort of "cracker" out of toilet tube with paper wrapped around it and food or treats inside.

Mine like those bendy bridges. They also enjoy cardboard boxes or egg boxes with treats hidden inside.

Wicker tunnels go down well.

I give them the same old toys time and time again but because they have them for a week or two then have something else its like giving them new toys each time!

In their play boxes they have a different wheel, a tunnel and some bedding and food. They all adore their play boxes and are eager to come out of their cages to go into them.

Toilet roll tubes are great, you can cut the ends into strips and fold them in a sort of weave pattern, with something tasty inside of course! Also Pets at Home's other sections are worth a look - Harry's got a rope ladder from the indoor birds section, a look-out platform that's actually a dog's rope toy, and a scratching rock from the fish department.

Be careful with any rope toys,many are cotton especially with dog products Plus a lot of ladders have gaps which aren't safe!There are some really good DIY toys though,no matter how creative someone is or how skilled they are with DIY

Something I'd recommend trying is drilling holes into natural hamster safe wood pieces,adding safe seeds to the holes,and stringing them onto some jute/sisal/hemp.You could even do this with untreated grape vine if you wanted.

Foraging clusters using toilet roll or Carefresh crinkles and bits of safe treats or food are also a great idea,just squish together your preferred material and then for tiny seeds like millet or flax seed just sprinkle them through or for larger pieces you should be able to create a hole by hand in the mass of Carefresh crinkles or toilet roll.This isn't long lasting but is still fun to make and can be an affordable option,plus you could do this with the toilet roll already given as nesting material and add an extra bit of an enrichment!

Have you had a look on Zooplus? They sell some good size Syrian sized toys at reasonable prices. A few of my favourite toys from there are the willow tunnel, bendy bridges (small and medium), cork tunnel, extendable tunnel etc

You could have a browse through this thread and their are some toy recommendations - Top 5 buys? (I have posted on this thread my top 10 favourite Syrian items)
