I saw a pinecone in someone's picture. Are these safe? I don't want to get bugs in the cage if they are hiding in the pinecone from being outside. Also, I was wondering if anyone has used PVS piping as play tubes? I know the white ones are safe for fish tanks, so maybe they are Ok for piggies? What other toys can I give my piggies? The store doesn't seem to have much. I have some 3 or 4 inch balls made of some kind of twiggy material, and I found little 1 inch twiggy balls in the bird section that are safe to chew...I don't want my girls to be bored. Thanks
 
I've never used pinecones, but I think they have to be baked first or something like that. Hopefully someone will chip in about that.

None of my pigs have ever really liked toys. I have little wooden toys and chew things in my cage, but they never get played with. Hay is the best toy, I guess. Cozies and tunnels are a big hit, from my experience. Also, small stuffed toys that don't have any beads or anything that could be eaten.
 
I'm having a hard time finding tunnels that Daisy would fit through. That's why I was wondering if PVC pipe pieces would be safe. What if she chews them?

They have large guinea pig tunnels that are about 8 inches long and made of cardboard type of material at Petsmart for only 3 dollars. They are safe if they decide to munch on them. My piggie loves it, and their is a lot of room so it's not a tight fit. She is a long haired texel so she is definitely large.

I use bent grid tunnels with a textbook cover on them. I also make my own fleece cozy tunnels. Cardboard boxes also work well for playtime tunnels and hidey houses.
