The left one looks like junk to be honest.

The right hand one looks ok. I dont think kaytee have a very good rep for selling suitable things.

A cardboard box, or a brown paper bag is free and will entertain pigs for hours😆 The money you save could go in the vet fund

Yea was a little worried about the dyes used on the carrot toy.

Yea me too, and whatever that is inside the carrot shape. Try hanging a toilet roll tube from the ceiling of your cage( if you have a ceiling) and stuff it with hay. This is a big hit with my pigs.

Pet toy company's seem to use the trick of making things look attractive to us in order to sell them. Which is a really good but crafty business tactic.

Just with anything that hangs. Make sure they cant get their heads stuck and hang from it. Or their teeth stuck aswell. I make sure they can still touch the ground with their front feet

Carrot cottage is a big hit in our house - and a good old cardboard box or a large paper brown bag! You don't need to spend a lot to keep them entertained.

Just to add a suggestion, my guinea pigs have never touched any chews I buy them apart from anything made from willow. In the range they sell willlow sticks and a willow ball, they’re not as keen on the sticks (but will still chew them eventually lol) but the ball is demolished in less than a day :D so if you find anything willow I’d suggest going for it, I’m pretty sure they’ve started selling willow chews in pets at home now however when I first found the ones at the range they will the only ones I could find!
