Hi ASG,
Well, it depends on what your rabbit likes to play with. Since you only just got them, it might take you some time to figure out what their favorite toys or games are.
One of ours likes to dig, so we gave her some towels and rags that we stuffed in between the sections of the sofa, and then she'll dig them out and wait till we stuff them back, and dig again, and so on. She also likes to play with cardboard, so we have some pieces of cardboard that I build into a house or something for her, and she'll come over and pull it down and then "help" me move the pieces of cardboard around, or throw them around. When she was young she liked to go on "horsy" rides on our shoulders .
I'll try to insert a picture of that.


Our other bun likes to play with balls or other toys she can grab and throw, so she'll take a ball we offer and pull it away and toss it, sometimes we throw it at her and she runs after it and throws it aswell. She also likes to shred paper, so she'll take a newspaper or something we hold and play "tug'o'war" with it and pull it out of our hands.
Just try some different things to start with, and see what they react to and like. There are several websites that have suggestions for toys, the House Rabbit Society is one of them.
Have fun playing with your bunnies .

Hilde

Hazel-mom,

I absolutely love that picture of your bunny playing horsy rides.  That is just hilarious.  Rucy loves to jump up on my back too.

I'd love to put that one in the gallery in the playtime section!  Is that okay? Or would the "horse" have a problem with that?  If you'd rather just keep that here in the forum, I understand.  Otherwise, that is a great picture for the gallery.

Each bunny is different. Some are explorers - so boxes with holes etc, tubes, tunnels etc are great.   I haven't yet changed to toy test section yet, so you can check out the boredom buster box there. http://www.binkybunny.com/BUNNYINFO...fault.aspx

Some are diggers and also like rearranging - blankets, towels are good UNLESS they start trying to eat the towel.

Some like to chew and tear up stuff - phone books, cardboard paper towels etc.

The house rabbit society has a great list of suggestions: http://www.rabbit.org/faq/sections/....html#good

Let us know how it goes and what playtime ends up looking like at your place.
