I haven't found a toy yet that Lola likes. She is two months old, is it common for them to not be interested in toys yet? or is she depressed...I'm kinda confused cause I thought they played a lot.

Milo only plays with his toilet paper roll. He gas cat balls and cars and he doesn't touch them at all. He does like this stuffed ball thing I sewed him.

Plenty of hedgehogs don't like toys, only their wheel. I've had the most luck with toy cars (Hot Wheels, Matchbox, etc) but some of them just aren't interested at all. It's normal. They aren't social animals by nature, and "playing" is common for social animals, not so much for asocial animals.

Have you tried hanging a ball or bell or something from the top of her cage? Prim doesn't really like any toys but she does get a kick out of trying to pull things I hang down into her cage. I have to be really careful that my thermometer cord doesn't slip too low into her cage or she will try to pull down. Maybe try some bird toys dangling down into the cage? Other than that though, Prim just enjoys her wheel.

Layla loves tolit paper rolls and only plays with them too...but if i leave them in her cage at night she poops on them...yeah......anyways she also has 2 sparkly cat balls and a plastic ball with a bell inside...she rarely plays with the bell ball at night, and likes the sparkly balls well enough

I picked up a fabric cat ball at Petco the other day. It has cat nip in it, but Link likes it so much he keeps stealing it and buring it in his fleece. lol, He sleeps with it now, and i check it daily for loose strings ect, but it has been holding up so far.
