So the newest toy test toy/activity is the Diggy Box.  Though not a new concept, I really like the idea of having the diggy box in a plastic laundry bin as what has prevented me from using the diggy box in the past is sometimes my bunnies like to pee in the box.  The plastic laundry bin makes it easy to clean and reuse.

So check it out, try it out and report back here! If you have pictures of it, post 'em.  We'd love to see them.

I'll do the same!

What a great idea! My bunny Grace has managed to teach Juli, Kramer AND Raymond her horrible digging and biting and eating the carpet habit, so hopefully this will work for their digging urges

that's why the idea of plastic is a good idea for me, and it sounds like for you too.

I think it's a great idea. I never heard about this before. Although my buns never chewed carpets and other 'bad bunny' stuff, I think it'll be great to encourage their 'wild' side hidden in them.
One question I have it that in the picture, the basket looked pretty tall. Did your buns jump in? Or did you put them inside?

what a fun idea! :-) I am guessing the bunnies were put in there. Viktor would really go to town in there!

Hi there!

  Kokanee (the dutch) has no problem getting in on her own...She is very agile! Kahlua (my baby lionhead) could not get in at first so I cut an opening on the side of the laundry basket. Now she can easily hop in but sometimes she uses her "door"

Another thing I did at first so she could get in herself is I put her igloo beside the basket so she could hop on it and then into the basket!

Here is a picture that shows the opening

Kokaneeandkahlua - I just added that last picture with the entrance. That's a great tip.

Also, until now, I didn't realize it was YOU that sent me that tip. I just had put contributed by (your first name). So thanks again for a wonderful Toy Test Idea.

I love this idea and the side entrance is a great idea - I have an avid litter box digger but he's not agile and I would love to do this but I know he won't jump in the box and I was wondering about a lower sided box (but realized that will not keep the diggers digs inside) so a side entrance is a great idea. Of course Mango will need a double-wide entrance LOL.
