Buyer's Guide: Toys For Guinea Pigs

Guinea Pig Toys That Will Motivate Your Pet


Finding the best toys for Guinea Pigs can sometimes be a difficult task. But with so many options out there, the choices are almost endless. Just keep in mind that you should always be cautious when buying toys for these little creatures, especially if you have never bought one before. That's because buying the wrong toy for a guinea pig could very easily lead to an injury.

What to Look For


What to look for in toys for Guinea pigs? First of all, you need to look for toys that are meant to provide stimulation and fun. Chewing toys are excellent choices as guinea pigs are fastidious chewers. The best choice is always to purchase toys specifically designed for cavy's, but may also utilize other items such as cinder blocks, plain cardboard tubes, and wool pads as well. Avoid toys that are simply meant to occupy the cavy's time such as balls and ladders. These will serve their purpose of being a hideout and for chewing, but your pet will quickly discover them useful for the wrong reasons.

If you cannot find chew toys, you can still create interesting hiding spots. One very creative and fun spot you can use for these furry little pigs is their own feces! Hiding in their own excrement is actually a great activity for both you and your pet. There are different options you can choose from. You can purchase plastic bags and place them in a couple of different locations in your home to create interesting hiding spots.

Guinea pigs love to chew so this is probably one of the best toys for them to have. However, it is important you supervise your pet and make sure that the toys you provide are chewable. If you see your pig chewing on something he should not be chewing on, then you should take the appropriate action. Different toys will be appropriate for different species so make sure you get one that your guinea pig will love.

Wooden blocks are also good choices if you do not want to provide chew toys for your guinea pigs. Wood is durable and it provides your pets with several shapes to chew. However, it is a bit difficult to clean the wooden cage because of its non-toxicity which means it is not suitable for some pets.

If you do not have much space and you do not want to provide chew toys for your pet, then perhaps a playpen would be the best option for you. A playpen is like a cage but it is designed especially for your pet to have fun. You can put several shapes in the playpen and your pet can spend hours lying down, stretching, and playing. Your guinea pig will not be able to destroy the playpen. However, a playpen does have a negative effect especially if it is left unattended because it can seriously hurt your pet.
