    Hi! I'm looking to buy Custard some new toys to keep him happy during the day whilst I'm out. I was wondering what toys your piggies love so I can add them to Custard's fairly big collection!

    Thank you!❤

    Mine aren't very interested in bought toys, but they love the cardboard tubes from toilet rolls/kitchen paper (cut them length wise so they can't get heads stuck) stuffed with hay, cardboard boxes and paper bags again stuffed with hay. If you use paper carrier bags cut the handles off.

    Anything made of willow is always a favorite here.
    My lot love willow balls or sea-grass balls, stuffed with hay.

    Willow and seagrass balls (though they won't touch the third in the pack, flexible sticks?), anything cardboard they can nibble, throw about and use as hideys! They're energetic youngsters so - a bit like human kids - everything goes in their mouths and/or gets destroyed!

    Willow toys, mine love them! I also put different flavoured treat hay in this and it keeps them amused trying to get it out:

    It's a toy that you can stuff hay or veggies into and they can pull it around trying to get stuff out. Its gap are safe so no stuck piggies. Its from Pets At Home.

    Teddy liked almost anything made of wood. But his favourite toys of all the time were these ones without a doubt!:

    My boys love houses made of cardboard boxes! I bought them a mirror with a bell on it from the bird section of P@H and it freaked them out at first but now they love it!
