I am considering getting guinea pigs when I can. But I like to go in knowing the best things for my pets, SO what are your piggies favorite treats, hides, toys and chews? I know they are individuals, but it would be nice to have a basic for guinea pig fun shopping list.

If any of this makes sense.

I'd like to know this, too! I'm going shopping tomorrow, and I'd love to know what tends to be popular.

The best thing to do is make your own toys. The pigs love them, and you feel good about it too!

Mine love hammocks and chewys like toilet paper tubes with hay inside, and if you find a whiffle ball and put pellets in it they roll them around until the pellets drop out. Make sure they don't chew them though!

My girls absolutely love tunnels. I have some that I've purchased, and I also make some with tented newspaper or little paper bags with the ends cut off. They love to do a "piggy train" through the tunnels. It's so cute to watch.

Mine have a wicker tunnel that I bought from Petsmart. It's both their favorite hiding spot and their favorite toy. They chew it, run circles through it and around it, and sleep in it together.
