#101065 - 05/08/06 05:31 PM Stuffed Toy?

Last night when my little guys were playing, I put a stuffed bunny in their cage. They seemed to have so much fun with it that I didnt want to take it away! (but I did because I didnt know if that is a glider appropriate toy) What do you all think?

thats a good question i too would like to see an answer for it.

They are okay as long as they don't chew on them.

It should be fine as long as the fabric isnt one their toes can get caught on and there are no strings exposed or small pieces that could come off (be chewed off) like eyes, buttons, etc. Still, you did good not to leave it over night just in case they did get an urge to start digging in (literally).

[:"green"]If your gliders are chewers, you should not leave stuffed toys with them when unsupervised. They could get into the stuffing and choke on it. Also, be careful of stuffed toys that have "beans" in them... If they chew through to the beans, they could choke on those.
I have often put stuffed toys in my glider cages & they absolutely love them! My gliders aren't chewers, so I can leave them in their cages 24/7 and take them out periodically to wash them. As with pouches, inspect them every day to make sure there are no holes or loose threads.
For more complete information about safe & unsafe toys... please check HERE.

You could also open one of the seams, take out the stuffing and restuff them with little peices of fleece. That way if they do chew through, there is a safe stuffing inside.
Judge not until you have walked in their shoes and lived their lives. What you see online is only part of the story.

I could have missed the pain
But I'd of had to miss the dance

The soul would have no rainbow if the eyes had no tears.
