Default Helping Hedgies to play!

Hey guys!
Hoping someone can help me and my baby Edgar Allan Poke, out, would love to hear opinions.

He just had his first vet visit and it went overall amazing! The vet pointed out that he has some bad neurotic behaviours picked up from his old house where he did not even have a spot in his cage to make a burrow or sleep. i.e he has a bald spot from rubbing his head on the bars of his cage for hours, and some tendencies to want to chew on the bars of his cage because thats all he could do for a year day in and day out, (I'm extremely lucky his teeth, according to the vet are actually in pretty good health) he just had some bedding, that got cleaned once a week and the 3x4 of his little cage.

Ive since provided him with some toilet paper tubes, some small cat toys, and a Carolina Storm bucket wheel. Along with some old T shirts and a hide hut to burrow in but he seems scared of his toys? like he doesnt know what to do with them, or how to use his wheel, is there anyway i can teach a 1 year old hedgie some new "tricks" so to speak? any recommended homemade toys or stimulation activities your hedgies seem to love? i just want him to be more engaged with his home. he has a bigger cage coming next week so im hoping the extra room will make him more apt to move around and explore.
