I think the best of any toys are where you are actually involved also as this helps build a good bond/connection.

My best suggestion in home made wand toys - cheap and durable/fixable.

I have half a yard stick or something about 2 feet long, a hole drilled in one end where I attach a string about 3 - 8 feet long, then tie something small and fuzzy to the string. You can whip it back and forth for him to catch and he's covering 5 - 15 feet running each way exerting lots of energy.

I completely agree! I love being able to have a toy to actually interact with the kitties

This being said,I also understand the need to have things where they can entertain themselves, too.

I have a nice collection of wand-type toys and they are Yuki's favourite overall. She likes feathery attachments the best and I can get her to leap and bring it down with all 4 paws sometimes. I wish I could get a pic of her doing that, she looks like a little leopard I usually play her right out until she's tired before I go to bed and give her a few treats. I read that it's more satisfying for them to have treats after play because it simulates eating their kill. Oh yeah, I'd forgotten about ping pong balls in the bathtub! That's loads of fun
