Jolly Good Fun

Mr. Burns and Smithers—two of the ponies at the Farm-in-the-Zoo—aren’t cartoonish bureaucrats when it comes to horsing around. Scented Jolly Balls are tough, colorful toys they like to kick, chase and roll around their corral—sort of like Homer Simpson.

Boxing Match

The black bears and red wolves at the Pritzker Family Children’s Zoo engage their fine motor movements by pushing, flipping and carrying enrichment boxes around their habitats. Get them revved up.

Pumpkin Pry

Keepers at Regenstein Center for African Apes put canned pumpkin inside toys to give the western lowland gorillas a challenge at finding a snack. Make this fun trick a treat for these puzzle-solving primates

Dish Fulfillment

We Demand a Celery Raise

The Ball of the Wild

Amur tiger Molly, jaguar Kianto and the other big cats at the Kovler Lion House love to pounce and play with boomer balls—sturdy knock-about toys—for hours of enriching activity. Roll one their way today!
