Pet Rat Toys: Homemade Toys for Pet Rats and Other Pocket Pets
Zig-Zag Rope Perch for Small Pets: Toys for Rats, Mice and Small Pets on Wanelo
The mission for my shop is to facilitate the mental AND physical well-being of pets, which includes dogs, cats, birds, rats, rabbits, etc. I don't sell any pet food or treats because guaranteeing quality is a headache that I leave to other shops. (However, I realize that my small pet toys are chewed on, because rodents and bunnies just need to chew a lot. But those aren't too hard to guarantee type and quality of wood and non-toxic plastic, etc.) My shop is online only although I'm based in lovely northern Virginia.
I launched my new online pet supply shop last year and it's taken me a little while but I finally have a nice line of rat toys available. I'm not here only to sell, but also to learn so if you see anything not "kosher" in my shop please let me know, or if you have something you want but can't find, let me know and I'll try to find a supplier for it. I also will read through this forum and participate on occasion to learn more about rats. (I used to have a friend who had a rat so I know that I love them. I just don't have one at the moment, myself.)

Is it better to BUY pet rat toys or MAKE toys? Tell me why!
If you were stuck in a cage all day, you would want some ways to entertain yourself. And rats are no different. Rats constantly seek entertainment, and it’s up to you to provide them with it. While there are many different ways you can do that, rat toys are one of the best ways to keep them busy. Here’s a look at some of the best rat toys for your pet.Every rat owner has probably seen their rat digging at some point. Rats love to dig, but they sometimes want a little motivation to do it. Some toys can be buried in your rat’s cage. When your pet digs them up, he gets rewards that make it worth the effort. Rat toys come in multiple forms. Before you take a look at some of the top rat toys, you should understand what rats like to do. They make toys targeted to the various activities that your pet enjoys. I check the bird section every time I walk through a pet shop. You never know, the bird toys might be on sale. Walk past the ones with the beads and plastic, and stop right in front of the wooden ones. Bird toys are some of the best chew toys for rats, for two reasons: 1) You hang them, so they are challenging to reach, and 2) You hang them, so they stay clean and hygienic and are more likely to be used to the maximum extent. They can be a bit pricey, but I always manage to find a sale or a simpler toy at a reasonable price. Many of these have a nut stuck in them or some other interesting feature. My rats like these much better than hamster chew-sticks.
