I would love some suggestions for safe enrichment toys and puzzles for my smartie pants piggie, Gaffer.

He has a treat ball intended for rabbits. He noses it around and the treats fall out of the top.
He also has two simple puzzles intended for puppies.

I would love suggestions for any other enrichment puzzles to keep him busy.
Finding safe toys for small pets is surprisingly difficult.

Ive seen piggies that enjoy stacking cups. Also stuffing toilet paper tubes with hay seems to be a fun activity for my boys to try and deconstruct.

Probably depends on the piggie…Wally loves the wood toys from Petsmart and apple sticks. He loves to pick them up and throw them around. When he has floor time, he likes pushing plastic cat ball toys around.

I have both a snuffle mat and snuffle ball for Millie. The mat is just a fleece pad with strips of fleece sewn on. It looks like a rag rug. I hide veggies in it and Millie has to dig to get them out. There are instructions for making a snuffle mat in the thread 'Homemade Toys and hideys'

The snuffle ball is the same idea. I followed this YouTube video for: Snuffle Ball Instructions.
They use zip ties to gather the fleece, but I tied strips of fleece instead.

Here’s a video of Millie playing with her snuffle ball.
