My bunny Rexxy, is almost a year old (6/1/11). He is an orange mini rex and love to run really fast, and jump really high, and dig on my butt when I lay on the couch. I made him his favorite toy. It happens to be a box, with a small tunnel attatched. It has a very tiny turn in it, and it is his favorite hidout place. He sits in it, moves it with his body (underneath) his teeth (jerking himself back), and with his head (pushing). He speeds through his box tunnell while making rounds, we also put a towel on top (so he can dig). He likes to hop up on the box as well as hop over it. He has bitten the living beegeeses out of the corner where the tunnel just ends, and marks it with his scent constantly. It is our multi purpose toy and he never gets sick of it.
Be warned that if you create one, you have to encourage and reward your bunny with love when he uses it. The steps that I took to make sure he wouldn't be scared (because he is a wussy little bae) was, I cut three equal holes in a good sixe cardboard box, I let him play with it for abotu two weeks, then I added the tunnel and blocked off one part othe room with it so he was forced to use it. I pushed his little butt into it, then he realised that it was his box.
You can see his box tunnel on the left side of the picture attached. He is watching Top Model (his favorite TV show) by himself. (Lazy boy)
