Pah! Buns don't play with toys. They just eat them. Greedy things.

Don't, shudder! Some unfortunate cats have to wear stupid jingly things round their necks to scare off the birds. So you wear a stupid jingly ball do you?

I like to pick them up and throw them (at cats if possible)

Well freddie used to throw all the ornaments off the fire place, but I think that was just to make room rather than because he thought they were toys. I am a sceptic on buns and toys because he never showed any inclination that way

As for the DC it appears to play with toys but it is just an innate hunting reflex.

We like to play with toys, but not all rabbits do, and we don't play with them for very long. Our favourites and long tunnels to run through and boxes to hide in and chew although Smokey likes to pick things up and throw them, and Dandy used to have one particular toy that he loved, but it does not interest us.

As a superior species, we are all individuals with different likes and dislikes. It is what makes us special (unlike moggies which are rubbish).

Ah, now tunnels I can understand. Although Freddie did not play with toys, and we tried them, he did spend a lot of time loose in the garden so he was not lacking stimulation.

I think most bunny people will agree that buns don't play with toys that cost money. They seem to like phone books, cardboard anything, tunnels (the best), grass mats and wicker baskets that are in use.
PrincessTaz would exercise her entire body tugging at cardboard inside boxes and tunnels.
My first bunny, Starlight, loved to scrabble up sheets I put in a deep cardboard box, kicking them out between her back legs, turning around and patting them down nice and tidy. She was a REW Netherland Dwarf rabbit. She worked really hard at her project and then would rest sprawled out on a smoothed-down section.

Yes, I am being picky on the use of the words "play" and Toy". I agree they need things to occupy them, and in the case of Freddie that was gained by being allowed free range to an enclosed garden to explore and a lot of the hosue, with nibbles provided to alleviate boredom. I suspect my observations stem from Freddie being a large sleepy breed too.

Actually he was probably too busy sleeping to play....

I have to say I do not like cats, EK and S do, but they are definitely more intelligent, and more affectionate. This one seems to be really deprived of affection from what I can see because if we did not let it in it would spend a large proportion of its time on the loose alone and it likes nothing better than to curl up on someones lap and go to sleep.

Oh, very practical. Not only will you have storage space for all the new toys, but you will have all the ones already in the store!
