Life on the farm is not always laid back. Thankfully, there are plenty of toys for pet pig owners to make or buy.
As curious and charming as they may be, a mini pig can get into lots of trouble if they aren't entertained and stimulated throughout their day. The good news is that many dog toy options are available and will provide a mini pig with plenty of happiness at playtime.
Pigs are intelligent and naturally curious farm animals. While this might make a pet pig a delightful addition to the family, a mini pig may result in engaging in household destruction if they aren't supervised and provided with varied sources of entertainment.
If you're on the quest to find toys for a mini pig at home, take a look at the following mini pig enrichment toys. (So much for rolling in the mud and soaking up the sun.)
Toys for Mini Pigs
While you can certainly shop online at places like Amazon for squeaky and stimulating toys that will make yours a happy pig, many new pig owners opt for DIY options such as a kiddie pool turned into a ball pit.
Use your imagination along with this list to spark ideas for the next pig toy and up your pig parent game.
1. Pig Activity Rooting Mat - 35" x 35"
Keep an active snuffling and rooting mini pig occupied with this soft floor rooting mat, and they'll be happy and content even if they have to stay inside to play. Miniature pigs are natural foragers, this is perfect for them!
