When you’re looking to buy guinea pig toys and chews online, the experience can be overwhelming. Tons of options, right? But we’ve made it easier: a one-stop-shop to all things natural. We’ve got cubes (Timothy, alfalfa and a mix of both… all a great source of fiber for your cavy). We’ve got mobiles. We’ve got rings. We’ve got sticks. We’ve got balls. We’ve got play tables, twists, logs… you name it, we’ve got it. We said all-natural, right?
Small Pet Select believes that everything your guinea pig chews, eats, inhales, stands on or comes in contact with has to be totally safe. Every single detail is important. But why talk nutrition and toys? Because our toys actually have nutritional value! All that rye and buckwheat, all those grasses… they contain vitamins and minerals and lots of other great nutrients. Natural grasses are healthy! No guinea pig is one-size fits all; each individual has preferences, so we’ve got options.
Why Guinea Pigs Need Toys
Toys aren’t just for fun, they’re a requirement for all small animals. Toys provide an opportunity for these little guys and gals to act out their natural instincts. Digging, chewing, tossing… what’s better than that? Without this enrichment, guinea pigs have no way to channel their wild side.
So what are these natural guinea pig toys? Take a look at some of our favorites.
Our Favorite Guinea Pig Toys
It’s impossible to list all toy options for your piggy because just like hoomans, they’re all different. A little variety is a huge thing for the pigs. No one likes boring.
You might have to experiment a bit to figure out which toys your cavy likes best. Toys aren’t “one size fits all.” Some may be a total hit for your pet and an absolute dud for others.
How Guinea Pigs Play
Did you know that a guinea pigs’ natural activity is 75% foraging? Have you noticed that your cavy scratches the ground, tries to jump on things, chews the sides of his cage or his toys, and tosses basically everything around? This is all natural behavior, and it’s how guinea pigs play. Without toys, it’s much harder for your guinea pig to channel their natural instincts, which is part of their well being. A really important part.
Why Choose Natural Guinea Pig Toys?
We can’t stress this enough: please choose natural toys for your guinea pig; they’re going to be spending a lot of time with them. Toys that are made with natural materials, like Timothy hay, can actually aid in their diet, too. (Winning.) This is why Small Pet Select puts attention and care into every toy we offer. Say NO to glues, plastics, pesticides, dyes, preservatives, and paint. And say YES PLEASE to safe and fun guinea pig supplies.
Too many guinea pig toys contain harmful chemicals, pesticides, and icky stuff that’s no good for your little. We can’t sacrifice our cavy’s fun and enrichment just because these toys are potentially harmful. That’s no good for anyone. There’s good news, though, pet parents… we hand select all of our toys and make sure they’re made out of the very best things. We don’t support the use of artificial dyes, pesticides, harmful chemicals, or other bad stuff in our toys (or in any of ourguinea pig supplies, for that matter).
