Here are some great ideas for inexpensive ways to keep your pet ferrets entertained and stimulated from ferret-world.com.
Homemade ferret toys are a great alternative to the toys you can buy at stores. These can help you to save a bit of money.
Toys are very important to keep your fuzzy stimulated when out playing. However, all ferrets are different and will find different things interesting (just like humans). Each ferret has its own individual personality and with that come their own individual likes and dislikes.

Ferrets are great because most of the time they will create their own homemade ferret toys. For example, they can take a liking to your clothing and tunnel through it or steal it.
