Favorite Mouse toys?

Post by olimarthemouse on Sun Jun 26, 2016 5:19 pm

Ok, so here's the big question: What are your and your mouse's favorite toys? I'm going to do some shopping and would love some recommendations! Also, doesn't have to be made specifically for mice, but whatever you like to use for them! Thanks in advance!

My girls like homemade MESs the best, but Egg particularly enjoys chewing up these balls made of thin wooden rings. I don't know what they're called, but she loves to crawl inside them and chew them up from the inside out.

The cat toy I found on clearance at Big Lots two years ago.  It's a round plastic ring, one foot in diameter, with several mouse-sized holes on the top. The top half and bottom half are separated by a space that is, again, perfectly mouse-sized. The inside of the ring is like a tunnel that the mice can run in. It is intended to hold a ball inside for a cat to swat at and move around without being able to remove it from the ring.

I use it in the mouse playground.  Each mousehold gets to use it for a couple of weeks, then I wash and let another mousehold enjoy it.

Mine love climbing, so they love anything that hangs from the roof of the cage - hammocks, swings, hanging bridges, ropes. You can make these things yourself from fleece, popsicle sticks, etc, or there are toys you can buy. I also think hanging as much as you can from the roof as well as having toys on the floor is a great way of making the most of the cage/tank space hehe. It's always worth looking in the parrot/bird section as well as the small pets section!

If we're strictly talking about store bought items...

Coconut houses are well like. I made mine but the store bought one is prettier. http://m.drsfostersmith.com/product/prod_display.cfm?pcatid=25558

They like to shred those willow or raffia balls up. Like these: http://m.drsfostersmith.com/product/prod_display.cfm?pcatid=31975 but I usually get ones from the craft store. They're cheaper. These stuffed ones look extra fun though.

Hay hideaways.  http://m.drsfostersmith.com/product/prod_display.cfm?pcatid=25775  This isn't the exact one I had but same idea. They loved it but ripped it to shreds pretty quickly.

Apple wood chews or willow sticks are liked a lot too.
