Your Favorite Toys and an Award

In an effort to keep my formerly feral brother and sisters indoors and distract them from begging to go outdoors to play, Mommy needs to keep them from getting bored. We have tons of toys, but they've lost interest in most of them. Mommy would like to get ideas for new toys for us to try, so she wants me to ask you what your favorite toys are. We would love to hear about them in the comments.
************************************************************
We would like to thank the lovely and talented, Chance and The Cat Realm for giving us this wonderful award. We are very honored. We're supposed to pass it on to seven other kitties. We can't possibly narrow it down to only seven kitties, so we pass this award on to all of the blogs we follow. You all deserve it.

My favourite toys include Cat Dancer and a similar dragonfly wand toy, as well as a big pheasant feather. The problem, says #1, is that the toys I like best are all toys that require her to play with me!

Congratulations on your award!

Hi Grrreta!
Our favourite toy is a laser pointer. We chase that all over, and mum can be concentrating on something else while using it. It even gets a stir out of Evie, who otherwise doesn't play with toys.

I have a lot of mouses to chase, including ones with bells inside which make a great noise at 3am, I have a kitty wubba, I have a toy alligator with a squeaker inside, and I have a laser pointer which I LOVE!

My favorite toy is the Cat Dancer, too! I also have a feather on a wand that's fun to play with.

My favorite toy is a small wad of scrunched up paper.
I know, not too thrilling.

My fav are hair elastics. Not the plain ones but ones covered and multicoloured.
Again, not too thrilling.

The PM buys us toys but we prefer household objects. Just like kids I guess.

ConCATulashuns on yur awardie! We love all kinds of cat toys, but our furry favurite toys are some of the simplest things: coffee stirrurs (sip and stir straws -- they drive alla us Ballicai crazy!), milk rings off milk jugs, lids off plastic bottles, and toilet papur cores. We also love tail chasurs and wand toys and nip raviolis and catnip bananers.

MaoMao pretty much nailed it with regard to toys, but I must add that a favorite toy of mine is Mom's bras. *giggle*

Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn!

Grayson isn't really much for any kind of toys, but loves catnip on the Condo. I love almost every toy, especially if it is hanging from the Condo, has fev-vers or catnip. -Gandalf

Sunny's most favorite is a black rat :-D One of his newer toys that is a favorite, is a regular size mousie that's tail has puffy floof on the end. He loves that one, too. It tosses well.

Congratulations on your award!

When Mom was buying me some presents when she left me alone for two weeks, the nice lady at the pet store suggested putting strong catnip in a ziplock bag and then drop my toys (feathers, mice, etc.) in the sealed bag. Every time she pulls those out, they are like new toys again!

Congrats on the award!

I like Whirly Bird type toys and sometimes the simple paper wad thrown toward me.

I like my Dot, and although I never allow anyone to see me play with them I like my Mouseies. As a girl I love a nice chase toy.
