Hanging Chew Toys
We hand-make all of our hanging chew toys here at NWI Chinchillas. We do everything here -- from cutting the wood into toy pieces, to sanding / drilling / re-sanding the toy pieces, to dyeing the toy pieces, to stringing them on wire, and so on -- to ensure that we know exactly what goes into these toys, and to ensure that they are 100% safe for your chinchillas and other small animal pets. They are made with love.

To make this toy, we steep hibiscus petals to create our hibiscus coloring, and then soak all the wood pieces in this coloring for 12+ hours. This 12 hour soak is necessary to get the light purple color that you see on the wood, and it also infuses the wood with fun hibiscus flavor!

Ceramic Food Bowl
This ceramic food bowl is 4" in diameter and holds a good amount of chinchilla pellets.
Ryerson Glass Water Bottles
These are the glass water bottles we use with our herd. Chew proof and easy to use, they come with a metal holder to hook onto your cage.
We use spring latches on most of our cages to help secure the doors shut. Most cages can benefit from a little extra security. We have had chinchillas escape from cages without spring latches, but never from cages with spring latches. We recommend one for each door of your cage.
Metal Dusting Pans
These are approx 11" x 7" metal pans used for dusting chins. Unlike the dust houses, the chins cannot get in them and refuse to come out - which is important for us, at least with the rescues. Also, since they are metal, there is no plastic to ingest.
Our hammocks are approximately 13"-14" square and made of chin-safe fleece.
Hammocks -- $8.50 each
Corner Hammocks -- $7.50 each
Cuddle buddies (4-6" square or rounded) -- $3.50 - 4.50 each
