Rabbits love to chew and hop, but they also like to play. A few simple toys to enrich your bunny's environment can keep them active and stimulated, and some even offer new places to explore and hide. Another advantage of giving rabbits toys is that they can help lower the risk that your pet will nibble on something you'd rather they didn't damage, like your furniture or carpet.

We researched the market to find the best rabbit toys, read on to see our top picks.

Best Overall: Kaytee Apple Orchard Sticks Small Animal Treats, 10 Count

Kaytee Apple Orchard Sticks

Rabbits love to chew, so when it comes to finding the right toy to keep your rabbit busy, start with appeasing that desire. The Kaytee Apple Orchard Sticks are a must for any rabbit owner and will appeal to nearly any rabbit.

These all-natural wood chews will help prevent boredom and keep your pet’s teeth healthy. Every package comes with ten 3-inch sticks made from real apple trees. Owners love that they are a good pick for even the most aggressive chewers and many say they even pick them over other chewing options.

Best for Chewing: Ware Manufacturing Willow Branch Ball for Small Animals

If you’re sensing a chewing trend, it’s because rabbits really, really love to chew. We love the Ware Manufacturing Willow Branch Ball because it encourages chewing while keeping your rabbit entertained as they nudge and push this branch ball around. It’s made from all-natural willow and measures 4 inches around. It's available in single packs as well as packs of three.

The tightly woven design allows the ball to last for a long time, even with aggressive chewers. It’s the perfect size for pushing and playing, but it's small enough to fit in most rabbit cages. It can occupy even the most active rabbits, though some owners remark that they wish it lasted a bit longer.

Best for Climbing: Kaytee Lava Ledge Small Animal Toy

Kaytee Lava Ledge

If your rabbit likes climbing, they’ll probably be a fan of the Kaytee Lava Ledge. The pumice is safe for chewing and is coated with pet-safe food coloring, so it's totally safe for your pet. The hard texture cleans your rabbit’s teeth and helps file sharp nails down

This pumice rock toy attaches to the side of your rabbit’s cage, giving your rabbit a climbing surface and encouraging jumping exercise. While larger rabbits may not fit on the pumice to climb or jump, they will certainly love to chew on it or pop their front paws up on it to balance and look around.

Best Interactive: Niteangel Treat Ball

If you are looking for a way to encourage your food-motivated rabbit to get a little more exercise, consider the Niteangel Treat Ball. This ball has an adjustable opening for treats, allowing you to fill it with your rabbit’s favorite kibble or treat. When they roll it around, the treats will fall out, encouraging even more active play. These treat balls are a great way to wear out active rabbits and give them food motivation if they aren’t usually into play. 

Rabbits will spend hours rolling the Niteangel Treat Ball around and digging for treats. However, due to the small holes, cleaning can be difficult, so some people just swap them out when they get gross or only use the toy for dry treats. 

Best for Mental Stimulation: Living World Teach N Treat Toy

For those with extremely curious rabbits, a toy like Living World Teach N Treat Small Animal Toy is a great choice. This food puzzle is great for wearing out your rabbit and encouraging critical thinking. It encourages natural foraging and keeps your rabbit active and alert. The puzzle is a 10-inch square and holds eight treats in hidden compartments. It has three levels of difficulty so you can advance your rabbit as they gets better and better at the toy, so smart bunnies can continue to be challenged, even after they figure out the first two steps. 

Owners say this interactive toy can keep active and curious rabbits entertained for hours on end. Some very clever rabbits figured the toy out quickly, but for most it's a challenge that keeps them engaged.

Best Tunnel: WARE Fun Tunnel Play Tube Small Animal Toy

WARE Tunnel

Tunnels offer another great way to exercise your pet, and our favorite is the WARE Fun Tunnel for Small Animals. This washable, stain-resistant, odor-resistant tunnel measures 30 inches x 8 inches, and is made of safe, non-toxic plastic.

The flexible design allows you to mold and shape the tunnel to keep things interesting for your bunny (or fit inside their cage). It also helps satisfy your pet’s natural instinct to burrow, and provides a sense of safety and security while helping to curb boredom. The plastic is easy to clean, and you can even purchased two tunnels to create an extra-long play area.

Best Budget: Kaytee Perfect Chews for Rabbits

Sometimes the best toys are the ones you can afford to buy frequently, even when your bunny tears through them. The Kaytee Perfect Chews for Rabbits costs just a couple dollars and is a great toy to have on hand for your energetic rabbits. This kabob toy is made up of wooden balls, a log, wooden carrots, and a wooden block. It hangs on your rabbit’s cage or hutch and can be easily discarded once it’s been chewed through. 

Reviewers love that this hanging chew toy is enticing and appealing even to picky rabbits. Many owners say they always keep one on hand and that they last a few weeks before they need to be replaced.

Best Hideout: Prevue Pet Products Nature's Hideaway Grass Hut Small Animal Toy

Prevue Pet Products Nature's Hideaway Grass Hut Small Animal Toy

As small herbivores, rabbits naturally like to hide to feel safe. We particularly like this hideout toy because it's made from all-natural grass, which is safe for rabbits to chew on and has a nice smell that's interesting to rabbits. It measures 11 x 9 x 6 inches, so it's comforting to smaller buns but it may not be suitable for larger rabbits.

Final Verdict

Our top rabbit toy pick are the Kaytee Apple Orchard Sticks, which appeal to your bunny's chewing instincts (view on Amazon). However, if you really want to get your rabbit moving, consider the Niteangel Treat Ball, which lets you hide food inside (view on Chewy).
