Wooden Toys with Paint?

Post by Plazmotech on Sun Jan 15, 2017 3:37 am

I just got two female mice a couple days ago. I bought them a CritterTrail cage. I know, bad company, and the cages tend to be small. But I do intend to buy trails that will lead them to a larger habitat over the course of the next month. Plus, I don't mind the cost. For their habitat, I got them a nice, arched wooden house, applewood check sticks, and this one cool toy. The toy in question has a few wooden rods, with some lose wooden pegs holding it together. Each wooden stick thing is colored differently, and inside this "cage" of wood is a ball. One of my mice has taken a liking to this toy, and she is so smart she's figured out how to pull the little pegs out of the toy and take it apart. She then likes to chew on these pegs, while my other mouse seems to like chewing on her house, and the applewood chew sticks more. The issue is, I'm not sure if Nibbles is going to have health complications from chewing the painted toy! Thanks!

Generally the dyes used in toys and bedding for animals are high grade dyes used in products for humans, like napkins - or vegetable based dyes - both of which are safe. So I wouldn't be too concerned about the dyes as long as the toy was made for small pets.

Does it happen to be this toy? - http://www.drsfostersmith.com/product/prod_display.cfm?pcatid=14549

If so, the dye used in that toy is vegetable based, so it isn't harmful.

My last group of girls loved that toy! Had it apart in a few hours, chewed up all the little sticks very quickly. I should pick one up for this group to try. Ear wiggle
