Small animals instinctively want to chew and create their own nest. Most toys for
these pets are made of colored wood blocks or plastic parts fashioned in different
shapes and configurations. At best these toys are mildly appealing to pets. If a
small animal has any interaction with these toys, the cause is usually boredom, rather
than any particular love for the toy itself. Many of these remain basically untouched
until being discarded when they become soiled to the point of creating hygienic problems.
