    This is a fun interactive toy for playtime, though since it is on a string, it is best only used under supervision. It is simply a furry thing on a string with a bell, which you can wiggle around to entice your ferret into a game. The downside: the stick is not sturdy, so skip the multiple sections and just use the last section of the stick as a handle.

    This toy is cute and offers dual function as a cozy sleeping spot and a multi-tunnel toy. Made of soft fleece, the body of the octopus is a great hidey hole (about 10 inces diameter), while each of the 5 foot-long arms (technically isn't an octopus, I guess) are great for tunneling through, hiding in, and playing Peek-a-boo from as there is a hole halfway down each arm as well as at the end.
