Franz really likes toys that dispense treats (in his case just pellets). I took an egg carton and put some pellets in each depression, then I closed it and gave it to him. I have a video it's so cute! His ears are perky and he picks it up an shakes it, and tosses it over his back! He was doing binkies later and was really happy. I totally found something tht makes him feel silly!

I'll have to try that! Thanks for shraing. Do the pellets fly out when Franz whirls the carton around? Or do they stay inside? I guess if you clamp the egg carton shut, they stay inside. Do you poke holes in the carton so he can smell them through the paper?

There's already a hole above each depression and he smells them right away. He shakes them out and sometimes they fall out and he eats them, and he just works till he gets them all out either by shaking or opening it

Great idea. I will have to try that. Minnie and Maddie go crazy for pellets.

Ahem. I'll second that.
I went a bought a carton of eggs made of cardboard so when I use them up I can have a new toy thing.

I need illustrations, photos, home movies, diagrams, 3 page instructions written in English/Chinese/German/Spanish/French with little stickers corresponding to the tools and parts list on the carton and toy pieces themselves and a folding out rug sized manual to follow....

you get the picture. Thanks.

BWAHAHAH! Cactus! "IN MY FACE!!"

This is the conversation I had with my dad when I asked if he had an egg carton:

Me: Dad, do you have any empty egg cartons?
Dad: Do you need one for Koucha's toy?
Me: O___O.............. (How did he know??)

That is a great idea! I know my bunnies like to chew on the cardboard egg cartons but I never thought of putting treats in there and doing what you did. What a simple, yet brilliant idea! I'd love to put that in our "Toy Test" Section. Do you mind?

I don't mind at all! I've actually been Finding other things to hide treats in as well; some things didn't work out so well like my 2 liter pepsi bottle lol.

Okay, it's now officially the current toy test!  http://bit.ly/bbToyTest    I just announced it to on twitter and facebook, so hopefully there will be many happy bunnies tossing around egg cartons. LOL! It was funny to watch Franz flip that carton so high he almost flipped himself. Rucy used to do that -- brought back fun memories.

My boyfriend actually slow motioned it and it's pretty amazing; he stretches out almost 2 1/2 feet off balance. I'll try get him to jazz it up and I'll post an edited version. I laughed so hard at the slow mo it's adorable! Thanks for making my toy popular lol <3

I love that! If Pacey ever starts eating on his own again I am going to do that for him! Always trying to find new things to keep him interested.
