Right now when you spend $20 or more in my etsy shop, I will throw in a free stash toy. I have made some that look like stars, hearts, and Hershey's kisses. All you have to do is write in the Message to Seller section before purchase that you're from this forum & what your username is.
I recently got a full-time job, so I won't have time to make many toys and post about them. I decided to do made-to-order items so I can still offer great toys to the ferret community.
Right now, my etsy shop has tons of stuff that didn't sell after Christmas. I am still honoring the free stash toy when you spend $20 deal, as long as you type your username and forum in the Message to Buyer box. I can also sell them to you through here if you don't want to join etsy.com. The stash toys are hearts and stars.
I recently made some stuffed ferrets for someone, so turnaround time for made-to-order items is about one week, assuming I can do it on my days off.
I made a stuffed mouse that's actual-size. It dangles from braided yarn at the end of a dowel rod, so it's a great toy for dragging ferrets across the room. I can get almost any ferret to play with a wand toy.
While in Louisiana, I got some ideas for new toys.
One will be named after my father. He loved the St. Louis Cardinals, and I saw some cardinals on the morning of his death. So, I am making a stuffed cardinal named Benny. I will work on it when I go back home.
I also thought I needed a toy to celebrate Gotcha Days, so I will offer a Gotcha Day cupcake. I know a cupcake doesn't fit in with my natural foods theme, but what the heck.
Finally, I thought about Leela and how she likes to steal slippers and stick her head in mine when I'm wearing them. So from leftover cotton from bedding, I will make slipper toys.
I already have the patterns in my head, and I'll draw them when I'm on the plane.

The links most likely didn't work because the items are sold. While it is a good idea I don't think the velcro would work because then the ferrets would just rip off the toys from the wand while you are playing with them. Here is a link to her etsy shop www.etsy.com/shop/scrivenerferret
I love the chicken leg. I think it's more my toy than the ferrets'! One of my cats is obsessed with the "dead rat" and carries it everywhere like he's proud of it. I'm thinking of ordering another so we can leave one at Grandma's.
