I've bought a few toys for my gliders, but some of them they don't seem interested in. They really enjoy their toy balls but that's about it. What's your sugar gliders favorite toys?

Straws. Tie them in knots...tie them around things.
They go nuts for straws.

A big tupperware full of ping pong balls makes a great ball pit. Throw treats in and watch them dive in like kids at Chuck E. Cheeze

Justin likes the Borderlands series of first person shooters.

Aria just surfs her I-pod all day. She's learning Spanish

Arrow has gotten into some small mammal dating site. It's all local wildlife though. He gets mad when I press him on it. Youth.

Mrs. Frisby complains that she never has time to play because her deadbeat mate is always on that damn video game.

And Athena...at just about 8 weeks. She just loves to explore and drink it all in with those giant obsidian eyes.

Seriously though...a little feathered cat toy drives them crazy too.

Just a few ideas
Hope that helps.

Plastic bracelets, you will find they carry them back to the sleeping pouch and get a little miffed when you remove them daily.

They think they work so hard to get all 24 of them into their sleeping pouch, I don't know how they can sleep with all of them in there.

Straws bent into triangles. Put a drop of honey in them before you join them together.

I followed another person's idea (Terry)on here and found a little tykes Noah's ark at a yard sale for $3. I fill it with barrel of monkeys, blankies, bracelets,fleece pompoms, split milk rings, straws, feathers...

I create mazes using PVC piping. I use mostly 2", with plenty of 90 and 45 degree turns, as well as 3 way "T" connectors. I rearrange the maze often. I used steel wool to remove the ink on the outer surfaces, and sandpaper to smooth any seams or other rough edges. A hacksaw or other manual saw is best for cutting long straight sections into smaller ones to fit the cage. Pics are on my blog in my signature block.

We also use the PVC chain that you can buy at home improvement stores. It is great for hiding treats like dried fruit (organic, unsweetened of course!) Cutting a section out of a single link can turn it into a simple hangar.

Piling the chain into a plastic container and burying treats among/below it is also great fun to watch.

Seriously, right?!?!

Mine like anything dangly with looks to check for treats, knots to undo, or containers to open.
