Top Picks for Sugar Glider Toys

#1 The Sugar Glider Toy Six Pack: 6 Toys In 1 Bundle

The Sugar Glider Toy Six Pack: 6 Toys in 1 Bundle is the top pick among sugar glider owners for its versatility and affordability. Distributed by SunCoast Sugar Gliders, this toy combo pack includes six of their most popular toys for sugar gliders.

They include the Rockin’ Maraca Swing, the Foraging Cup, the Can of Animals, the Strech Rope (24″), the Ring Thing on a Spring, and Noodley Tubes (4 ft).

Native to such countries as Australia, Tasmania and Papua-New Guinea, sugar gliders live in trees. So the ability to climb is important in creating a comfortable environment for them. It appears that this was considered when creating this combo pack as it includes several toys that allow for climbing and swinging.

The Rockin’ Maraca Swing and the Ring Thing on a Spring can be connected to the top of a cage, and it gives the sugar glider something to glide from and swing on. The 24-inch Strech Rope and the 4-ft Noodley Tubes can be connected to a surface of your choosing enabling the sugar gliders to hang and climb. Active sugar gliders can use the Can of Animals to roll around on, or they can play with the animal toys inside. The Foraging Cup allows your sugar glider to have fun while searching for delicious treats.

The toys are made from durable plastic materials that are easy to clean. All the hanging toys appear to be easy to connect to desired surfaces, particularly the Strech Rope as it has clasps on the end for easy connection. There is no assembly required with the toys in this pack to get the sugar glider fun started.

What We Like:

  • Product distributed by a reputable company that specializes in sugar glider goods
  • Variety of toys that are durable and easy to clean
  • ​Toys don’t require assembly

#2 Trixie Pet Products 6298 Suspension Bridge

Coming in at second place is this eye-catching and versatile Trixie Pet Products 6298 Suspension Bridge. This toy can be used for any small animal such as hamsters and sugar gliders that enjoy fun time in their cages. What makes this toy unique is that it offers a little bit of everything. It includes two ladders for climbing fun-the horizontal wooden ladder and the vertical rope ladder. There is also a rope ring for climbing and swinging.

The interesting part about this toy is the colorful plush polyester hammock that connects to the wooden ladder. The sugar glider can use the hammock for resting space after a well-spent play session. The entire suspension bridge connects to the inside of a cage via metal clasps.

#3 Banana Hammock Hanging Bunk Bed House

More of an accessory than a toy, the Banana Hammock Hanging Bunk Bed House is a favorite among sugar glider owners for its bright colors and cute furry interior. Made from yellow lint fabric, this hammock is designed in the shape of a banana. It includes a green tip and a cute yellow flap that opens and closes to allow the sugar glider to enter and exit the hammock at will. The parameters of the hammock are 10in long, 5in wide and 0.5in in width providing more than enough space for the sugar glider to rest and relax.

This hammock has bilateral clasps that are securely sewn into the hammock allowing it to easily hang from a cage or taut line of your choosing. The inside of the hammock features a soft, plush polyester interior making it the perfect snugly hangout or bed for your sugar glider.
