I had an idea of putting rabbit treats in a KONG toy designed for dogs

(like this: http://www.petsmart.com/product/ind...Id=3206970 

 

Just wanted to know what you guys think of the idea.

I sort of tried that-it was a kong like toy and no one bothered at all -depends on the rabbit. It should be supervised though-rabbits love eating rubber and they may just snack on the kong itself.

A cheaper and safer (especially if your buns are "consumers" and not just "chewers") idea would be to stuff an empty toilet paper roll with hay or veggies and leave the ends hanging out to entice the bunnies. You could use a "treat" hay, like some alfalfa, but what I do is stuff the TP roll full of cilantro, parsley, and the like. The veggies don't usually last very long, and I think Leroy gets a little annoyed with me for give him food he has to work for, but it's fun to watch him try to pull the veggies out, and at least it occupies him for a few minutes. He chews and attempts to eat things like laptop charges and phone cords, so I'm leery of giving him any rubber toys that he could chew into bits and swallow.

Building off of what Barbie already said; at Drs. Foster and Smith there is a treat ball that is plastic and not as edible. So far my playful bunny loves getting her food out of it and it keeps her entertained for hours!

Yeah, I fill TP rolls all the time with goddies. I was just wondering about different toys and such. I'll go ahead and look at Drs. Foster and Smith, Thank you!

I have a very hard plastic toy (from a major petstore's small animal section) that they can't chew thru, and I stuff treats in the holes, which are largish. It is like one of those baby toys where the baby pushes different-shaped objects thru the matching holes. It works well, and the bell in it means the bunnies are always interested.
