Rabbits thrive on enrichment and need to be engaged with their surroundings to meet their basic behavioral needs. Providing fun and safe opportunities for enrichment with different types of rabbit toys and accessories can help prevent boredom-based behaviors that can be damaging and costly. Key behaviors that rabbits are hard-wired to instinctively take part in every day include:

  • Exploring – Exploring offers not only mental stimulation; it also promotes physical activity that can prevent obesity. Providing rabbit toys that promote exploration is a fun way to help your pet stay active and healthy.
  • Playing – Rabbits are intelligent and social animals. Using enrichment toys and accessories during play can help you and your pet build a strong human/animal bond.
  • Chewing – Rabbits have open-rooted teeth, meaning that they continuously grow throughout their lifetime. By directing their attention to bunny toys that are meant to be gnawed on, you’re helping them maintain their dental health while also diverting their attention away from less than ideal chewing fodder (like that 7th generation wooden rocker in your living room).
  • HidingHouse bunnies may be domesticated, but they still have their prey instincts! Providing rabbit accessories that promote hiding throughout their habitat and your home can help your pet feel safe and reduce stress.

With these four key behaviors in mind, check out our top 10 rabbit toys and accessories below to help you meet your bunny’s enrichment needs!

 

1. Play Wall – Large

Oxbow’s Play Wall has the perfect combination of textures to focus your little one’s attention on chewing something that’s safe, healthy, and won’t cost you an arm and a leg to replace. Speaking of which, bonus: the danglies included with the Play Wall are replaceable!

 

2. Tumble & Toss

3. Spin ‘n Chew

4. Hide ‘n Seek Mat – Large

Great For: Exploring and Chewing

It would be annoying if we had to search for our food every time that we wanted to have a nibble, but trust us when we say that rabbits love the occasional challenge! The Hide ‘N Seek Mat is the perfect place to hide food and treats, encouraging your bunny to do a little digging and exploring. It’s also made with 100% Timothy hay and doesn’t feature any wire, strings, or threads.
