    The stacking things that you can get from Wilkinsons for £2.50 (like little vegie racks) are great for climbing and sleeping in, I also use upside down childrens stools, I put a hole in each foot and fasten them onto the roof of the cage, then I also have flexi tubes fastened to the bars of the cage or the roof making little walkways or ladders, I also have a cat scratching post in each section fastened to the bars they love to run up those, I also have one of those wooden arches (the big rabbit size) that is really useful, you can make it into a den or a ladder if you fasten it on with cable ties or even a cage divider if you wedge it under the little levels, as well as the usual hammocks, igloos etc. I also give mine dog bones to chew on (the shop bought ones). Their favourite thing though is a box of cheap tissues, simply rip the lid off and let them pull the tissues all over the cage and use the box as a chew toy/bed.
