Toy Balls for Your Rabbit
One thing I have learned from having pet rabbits is they all like toys to keep them amused.
Toys help to keep them from getting bored and when you have toys that you yourself can play with, it helps increase your bond with them. It will also help make them trust you more.
Balls are always a great hit with rabbits, they just love to throw them about.
You too can play ball with them by rolling it to your rabbits and watching them pick it up and throw it. Sometimes, they will even nudge it back to you for another go.
To help you get hours of play, I’ve put together a list of the best toy balls for rabbits you can get nowadays!
To start this list, I am beginning with the one ball that has outlasted pretty much all of Speedy’s other balls and is one of his favorites.

These are some of the best toy balls out there right now that you can use to play with your rabbit or let them play with on their own.
Still, a word of advice: edible balls won’t last as long as the plastic ones and not all the balls will suit every rabbit.
While some will enjoy the treat ball and working to get that tasty snacks out, other rabbits (like Speedy) are lazy when it comes to that sort of thing.
Some rabbits enjoy destroying balls made from grasses, but they also may be the type of rabbit who craves playing games with you.
All rabbits are different, let’s not forget that!
