I bought this toy with Mr. Bunny 10 months ago: www.petsmart.com/product/index.jsp He never really played with the ball; he's not big on toys (I'm pretty sure he had none for most of his former life) and, for some reason, is afraid of bells anyway.
I didn't feel comfortable with the little rabbit-throat-sized jingle bell inside to begin with, so I cut it out a few months ago. Yesterday, I got the idea, "Hey, why not fill it with food?" So I cut a small hole in the side and filled it with pellets and hay. Mr. Bunny really attacked it! He was so crazy to get out the pellets, he was throwing the ball around and chewing it like crazy, rolling it everywhere. The finished product looks a little like the grass balls BB sells.
Moral of the story; sometimes if your bunny never bothers with a toy you can change it a little and they might go wild. Oh yeah - and grass balls are great.
Mine is now destroyed thanks to this Idea, It really worked, I need to buy the binky bunny one now! I only put hay in too, you would think it was filled with paypaya tablets!
