I find that there's often not much need to invest in pricey toys for ferts, as a lot of things I've already got in the house keep them endlessly entertained.  Cheesy What around-the-house stuff do you use to keep your fuzzies entertained?

Here's a few I'm a big fan of:

- Plastic grocery bags (under supervision, of course, but they LOVE the crinkles and burrowing in them)

- Toilet paper rolls (they love attacking them and stashing them)

- Stainless steel mixing bowl (a weird one, but they love the noise it makes if they climb in and flail about!)

- Clean dryer tubes (this one should be obvious - tunnels)

- Strands of yarn (for chasing and tackling)

- Plastic bottles (watching them trying to stash these is a hoot and a half...)

- Cardboard boxes with packing peanuts (I often get big packages, and save the box + peanuts for a free digbox. Just be sure to supervise fuzzies so they don't ingest peanuts. Mine have no interest in putting the peanuts in their mouths)

Share your freebie ideas!  Smiley

Our girl loves to climb in and out of my rubber boots. I've found the insoles all over the house.
