Guinea Pig Product Review: Small Pet Select Meadow Ball

'Tis the season to buy cool stuff for your loved ones! And yes, that should include your guinea pigs. We are part of your family, after all, and if you get us the right gift, you'll see as much excitement on our faces as a human child when they rip open their gifts on whichever holiday you celebrate. But how will you know what the right gift is? Fear not, because we have guinea pig product reviews going back years now, and we're about to add yet another one!

Today, we're reviewing another toy from Small Pet Select's toy sampler: the Meadow Ball. Small Pet Select describes the Meadow Ball as: "Lucious meadow grass, all twisted and wrapped into a ball of fun goodness. What is better than a treat you can eat and play with too? Healthy high fiber, totally safe. This toy is great for chewing and tossing, and you might even see more than one cavy playing with it at a time." Sounds great from the description, but will this toy be a holiday-do or a holiday don't?

Do I want to chew on this?
I think I do want to chew on this.
And give it a little toss! Wow, the description was right.
Similar to the Honeysuckle Ring, I was interested in playing with this toy, but Lola wouldn't even come near it. (Come on, Lola. Live a little!) However, I didn't play with it as long as the ring. Something about the ring was just more fun to chew on, and your neck muscles get tired pretty quickly trying to toss this thing around.

So what's the verdict? We give it 3.5/5 stars--it's a holiday-maybe!


  1. Sad news from our cage: Arwen has died. But she seemed to like the meadow ball, too.

    1. So very sorry to read your sad news. We often see your comments and feel that we have lost a friend.

    2. Oh, so sorry to hear about Arwen! She sounds like she was a very good piggy. It's never easy to lose a piggy pal. Lots of hugs from everyone at Cavy Savvy.

    3. Thank you. Eowyn has been pretty heartless about it but it was hard on the human. It looks like you at Piggyfriends also lost a piggy; we are sorry for you, too.
