Introduction: Bestest Ratty (or Other Rodent) Toy Evah!

About: I love DIY! Love originality and love saving a buck by making fabulous copies of stuff I love on celebs, but could never afford. Right now I just started my own version of the kick-ass Fiona Paxton Coco Neckl…

Step 1:

Pick out a treat - rat yogies were a favorite of my little boy, but any little thing works. A dab of peanut butter is especially yummy and keeps the rats busy longer than non-sticky things. My rats used to go nuts for Nutella, too. (Me, too!)

Step 2:

Take a small piece of non-toxic paper and wrap the treat up good. I used plain white typing paper a lot because I was pretty sure there wouldn't be toxic ink. I wouldn't recommend any newspaper or stuff with dye in it.

Then I'd do that two or three more times so it was really wrapped.

Tie a bunch on a single long string like a string of delicious Christmas lights


put them all in a toilet paper roll and squish up the ends really good and watch the kids tear up the roll and stash treats here and there. (this is Ed from

Sorry - my computer is crash-tacular today. When things look up I will try to make pics to show what I am talking about in the last two steps.
