Default toys for Chihuahuas?

Hi all. I brought my girl Maisy home on Wednesday. She is adjusting very well, but has not played. We have squeeky toys, chew toys and one of those tug ropes, but she's just not interested. She is currently 4 lbs even and 4 months old. Did we buy the wrong types? What toys work best for Chis? I have noticed she will put any type of paper or thin cardboard in her mouth (I quickly learned and keep a watchful eye on her) What would you guys suggest? I really want her to be able to use some of this energy i just know she has.

They are all different. One of mine played right away, the other, our more cautious one took some time to really play.
Mine like stuffed toys best while others here have babies who prefer rubber squeaky toys and balls.
Did you happen to see what she played with at the breeder or did they send any toys home with you?

Our Chi CHI likes to play fetch, we use the small stuffed toys from mcds kids happy meals. Also the small size kong air balls are great. They are squeaky tennis balls on a small scale. He also enjoys tug o war so we use a kong wubba.

Audrey Lyn tears up stuffies so she only gets those only close supervision. She gets rubber mind stimulation toys. Kongs fill with treats or some peanut butter (not too much peanut butter) these toys are durable and mind stimulating. She also does have some squeaky toys. She has a great rubber ball that we play with endlessly as well. The ropes she also can't have as she eats the strings! But rubber is what I like best. She loves her kong and her rubber ball. And I don't use tennis balls since audrey also tries to eats the fuss off of them :/

Everything is so new to her right now. Let her settle in and when she gets comfortable, she will probably play with all the toys. It's a big step leaving her first home and mom and siblings and she will need time to feel comfortable before she starts playing.

Have you tried playing fetch with her?
Throwing and fetching really small balls was always a favourite game of Calista's as a baby.

Dottie loves a soft octopus toy,it has legs and she snuggles up to it when she's tired,then she will beat it up when she's playful,it's her favourite out of all the toys
