It’s time to fill your guinea pig’s house with all kinds of fun. But clean fun, am I right? When you look at some of the unnatural materials used to make toys, handmade guinea pig toys look amazing.
Creating toys yourself is a great way to connect with your pet. But sometimes you want to shop for some fun additions to add to their environment. Organic and handmade products should be your first stop.
Small Pet Select’s handmade guinea pig toys aren’t made in a giant factory on machines. They’re made on an organic farm. People put these unique toys together in small batches paying attention to every detail. If you can’t do it yourself, this is the next best thing.
And the survey says - The guinea pigs love them!
The Most Loved Handmade Guinea Pig Toys
Natural toys and chews come in all shapes and sizes. Most of them are made from hay and created in different styles. Although a toy for your guinea pig could be as simple as a birch log for them to move around and chew on. Or a Curly Q Stick for fun! Guinea pigs choose toys that give them a little more to explore!
So much fun!
The Wonderland Play Table
This handmade toy is a three-in-one guinea pig dream. It has birchwood logs for the legs that guinea pigs love to chew. This table has a digging box floor, and two types of hanging mobiles. The mobiles can be changed out with other hanging mobiles to keep your guinea pig busy exploring.
The mobiles are made with alfalfa and timothy mixed hay cubes. This handmade guinea pig toy is a fan favorite. Guinea pigs can sit on top or inside as they explore the different materials.

Great For Guinea Pigs!
Hay and Twig Mobile
The mobiles on The Wonderland Play Table can be changed and replaced. But the Hay and Twig Mobile can also be purchased separately. The materials used in these mobiles change seasonally but they can include akebia, blackberry stem, apple twigs, cattail, lambs quarter stems, sunroot, or sunflower stems. The cubes are made of Timothy and Alfalfa hay.
These get your guinea pigs pulling and tugging! If you’ve ever bobbed for apples then you know grabbing onto a moving target is challenging and these piggies are up for the challenge!

Good For Active Guinea Pigs
This seagrass mat is another way to get your guinea pig chewing with handmade guinea pig toys. It’s woven from natural seagrass and nothing else! It’s soft, edible, and made for digging and chewing.

I recently purchased this for my guinea pigs and they love it! I keep their wood chews/toys on there, but they prefer to munch on the mat. Well made and excellent price.
The Guinea Pig Habitat Hideout Castle is the perfect hiding place for a guinea pig. This castle is made in a workshop without any screws or glue. It’s held together with a food-grade soy-based adhesive.
You can add on to the castle with a tunnel, more castles, and a bridge. This castle leaves plenty of room for creativity.
Check out this setup we shared on Instagram from @thebrekkiebuns.

Great hideout for a guinea pig or chinchilla
Guinea Pigs Need Toys In Their Environment
Guinea pigs were domesticated 500 years ago. However, they still have their natural instincts in full force. Toys help keep their minds and body healthy.
Here's a video of some of our piggy friends enjoying some Small Pet Select chews!
Keeps Them Active
Guinea pigs are naturally very active. Their nondomesticated ancestors spend their days traveling long distances. They are prey animals who move quickly from one cover to the next.
Gives Them Hiding Places
Guinea pigs love to burrow and dig holes to hide in. They gnaw and forage, always looking for food.

Piggies love it!
I upgraded a plastic pigloo with this wooden house and me and the piggies love it! Looks really great in the cage and it stays put on a fleece pee pad. No more tipped over pigloos! I will be buying more products in the future.
Opportunities To Explore
Toys give domesticated guinea pigs an opportunity to explore. Without toys, they are bored, which leads to inactive guinea pigs. Toys keep them happy and active which gives them long-term health.
Chewing Wears Down Their Teeth
Guinea pigs’ teeth are always growing. This isn’t a problem in the wild because they spend so much of their day gnawing on sticks, brush, and vegetation.
This is why it’s so important to make sure that your pet’s environment has chew toys so that they can fulfill the natural instinct to chew and keep their teeth worn down.
Trees For Guinea Pigs
The Aspen Wood Sapling was a good decision for my awesome guinea pig. He loves to keep his teeth trimmed with hours of chomping on the sapling. I will be purchasing a lot more of these Aspen wonders in the future.
Organic Handmade Guinea Pig Toys Keep the Fun Safe
Nothing interrupts a full day of exploring and chewing like toxins and irritants. Sadly, there are many toys and products made for guinea pigs that aren’t made from natural materials. Thus exposing guinea pigs to harmful chemicals.
A guinea pig is only free to explore when their environment is free of unnatural materials that could hurt them. And we are all about natural exploration.
