... I've developed a means of getting her interested in them, but I wonder if anybody has anything to add to this.
I took a small aerosol bottle and filled it up with a diluted mix of water and apple juice, and give the toys she neglects a couple of sprays. That usually gets her attention for a long time! However, since I know buns shouldn't have too much of this kind of thing, I was wondering if anybody had a healthier alterntive? (I know they have bunny REPELLING sprays, but what about something that actually attracts them? She's a fussy girl so I think this would be a great breakthrough for me )
Thanks guys!

that's a clever idea to make toys decidedly more interesting! i think if you're using unsweetened juice it's likely fine, but you might keep it refrigerated to avoid the juice going bad and wash the toys about once a week to keep them from developing bacteria. although, these suggestions may be a bit virgo of me to mention.

The other ideas to get buns interesting usually involve hiding treats (like raisin or cranberry) in toys, which isn't healthier than the juice / water spray.

I sometimes take an apple and rub it over their "boring" old toys. It makes them new again!
