Question Hedgehog does not Seem to like Toys

I have had Valerie for a while now and I can't seem to find any toys she like except for toilet paper rolls and a stuffed animal. I have tried things like jingle balls, Fleece forest, socks, etc. I don't want her to be bored, but I can't seem to find something she'll like. If you know any toys picky hedgies like, please tell me. thanks!

How about a dig box?

If it makes you feel any better, many hogs won't play with toys beyond their wheels. It's fairly normal. If she's at least playing with tp rolls and a stuffed animal you're doing pretty good.

That said, Artemis's suggestion of a dig box is a good one.

Totally agree with shinydistraction and Artemis-Ichiro.

Occasionally you will find a hedgehog that actually likes little balls and crinkly things, but most just walk around them. I find that the best toys for hedgies are things they can go inside and explore such as PVC pipes, big yogurt tubs, and tunnels of any sort. Dig boxes (as stated above) are also fantastic, they really bring out their natural foraging instinct.

Another type of "toy" that most hedgies like would be things that you can hide kibbles/treats in. My hedgehog has a little mini Kong that I like to put wet cat food, chicken, or kibble into. You can also use little toy trucks (and put treats in the back), mini yogurt tubs (put the treats underneath the upside-down cup), or just about anything of that sort.

My hedgehog Milly loves toilet paper tubes... It's adorable to watch her run around with it on her head!!!

Hedges hates toys other than her wheel and few other things too. I went to a sandwich shop and saw they were about to throw out a giant cardboard tube (Like 18" long, 3" diameter) and asked for it, Hedges loves it! She also loves the tissue box. (the long one, not the small square kind) I've yet to try a dig box.

Bramble has a plastic cat ball with a bell in it, and a toilet roll but doesn't play with either of them (not that I've noticed anyway), but he loves his dig box, I put mealworms in it for him to find.

Winston has a couple of squeaky toys that he really likes squeaking. I just get the ones made for xs dogs.

Try to double check thread dates before posting - this one's a year old. It can get confusing when old threads get brought up.
