A dixie cup is a little paper cup that people use to rinse their mouths after they brush their teeth.

Cute little guys! (I used to have a gerbil, too.) You don't find that this is too fast/easy for them to get apart? Mine was happy to really rip things up fast, and I can imagine him making short work of this toy. Might be fun to make it even harder. ;)
