I find with my rabbits that many toys/chews don't interest them but in a larger size they will. For example, if I offer them a small branch to chew, it's not popular, but the same kind in a giant size will be a hit. The same with some of the pet store bought things --- what's rated for rabbits is often too puny. It's maybe only meant for the dwarf breeds (I'm thinking tunnels, mats, grass balls, hidey houses, etc.)

it's not like rabbits come from a miniature world after all.... (btw, I'm not talking about the BB store but Petsmart and places like that)

It does seem like buying baby clothes, ie. they will fit for about 2 weeks and then they outgrow the clothes/toys.

I ordered a much larger hidey thing so she could grow into it. But some toys were too big to be picked up, tossed or carried, so it can vary with the bunny and the toy of course.

Guess it depends on your rabbits play style what they prefer. I do agree for chewing they go for bigger things. I find the most stationary things are popular as they can really get their teeth into them. I keep meaning to make them a Chew Station for the bunny area. Thought I'd fix safe chew branches etc onto a peice of board. I've been slack though, and chances are they'll still go chew other things about the house and just pee on the new thing in their area. *roll eyes*.

I absolutely agree! My buns love things that are big, and I'm guessing it's because they are more STATIONARY than smaller objects. They can get their teeth into them and they don't roll away or raise up when they try to pull upwards with their teeth.

Stationary, I see. I hadn't looked at it that way...
Jersey, a Chew Station? You gotta get on that and share photos!
