Teemo just kinda sits in his pouch all the time and I havent been able to decide what toys to get him. Im sure part of that is because he still isnt bonded but Id like to finally get him some. So what do you suggest I get first for him? I was thinking maybe a wheel, a ball pit, and some hanging monkeys. He already has some ladder bridges and a stoop type thing.

The toys you've listed are great basics to start with (Wheel, Ball Pit, & Hanging Monkeys).

In your ball pit, which can basically be a Toy Bin/Pit as you can add several varieties of items such as:

-Plastic army men or animals (found in dollar stores)
-Pom poms, feathers, silk flowers (without wire) get good quality with those, and watch for shredding or fraying. If shredding or fraying occurs remove and continue use for supervised play or throw away.
-Cut straws, cut milk rings
-Plastic bracelets and rings (found in dollar stores)
-Basically anything hard plastic.

What kind of fleece vines do you have?
-Braided vines, you can use c-links hooked on to add toys dangling or even foraging cups/containers.
-Fluffy vines, you can tie on a c-link to add dangling toys or foraging cups to.

To create quick and easy toys, having on hand plastic bracelets, balls that have holes (wiffle or jingle), strips of fleece or plastic craft lace (can use with beads), plastic Easter eggs or plastic shot glasses, straws (use a pencil sharpener for a cool ribbon effect), C-links (super handy to have).

If he does not have a wheel - that would definitely be a good choice for him. Gliders really do need a good wheel for some exercise each night. These are all good choices.

Stealth Wheel http://atticworx.com/
Fast Track Wheel http://www.go-fast-track.com/spinzone.html
Raptor Wheel http://www.mygliderwheelsandmore.com/
Custom Cruiser Wheel http://customchoicecruiser.all4gliders.com/
H-Wheel http://www.humbertossugargliders.com/hwheelv2.0.html


Other toys can be relatively inexpensive things from the dollar store. Party favor bracelets, Barrel of Monkeys (dollar stores have in expensive versions with elephants, bunnies and dinosaurs gliders love also) and a big hit around here are straws. My gliders also like things like army men put on top of the cage for them to pull through and carry around.

Definitely, definitely a wheel for sure. Gliders use them SO much and they're great for exercise.

And as mentioned above, there are several simple things you can pick up locally as well.

I would get him the wheel first.

You can also go to a thrift store and get inexpensive children's toys like this: Castle , pirate ship or even the little barns or doll houses.

You hid treats in there and they have a blast searching stuff out.

I found him a fisher price Noahs Ark at a thrift store today for $2 so I got him that. I recall seeing somehwere on here that they are good toys. He likes is to far, barely fit in his cage though!

They are, I have a Noah's Ark toy (it came with Ollie), they love it. I toss some play toys inside for them to hold and chew on if they want, or just hold and throw, they like to toss toys around.
