Homemade Toys Alternatives

 

Guinea pigs are easy to entertain, so they are well-suited to playing with homemade toys.

 

Among the items in your home that would provide some fun are paper bags with holes cut in them, clean cardboard boxes, empty oatmeal containers, sheet or balls of newspaper, open lengths of PVC pipe (please make sure the pipe is sized for your pet crawl through safely or he may get stuck, which will be no fun for either of you), clean socks stuffed with hay, and empty paper towel tubes stuffed with hay or other healthy treats.

 

Some guinea pigs enjoy carrying or throwing plastic kitchenware, so they may like a plastic spoon, empty margarine container, or measuring cup. They are not able to play with their front feet as other rodents do, but they seem to have fun tossing and chasing things around the house
