My uncle had a rabbit when he was a kid. What he did was (and my mother has a photo to verify this) he put a cage around HIS bed and let the rabbit have the rest of his room.   Roll Eyes Cheesy

bunnys love all kinds of toys. I have a link with a bunch of toys that are fun and safe and cheap:
Obviously all toys should be monitored for saftey. If they start to fall apart they should be replaced.
Bunnys typically get destructive when they are bored (like most critters) so maybe some of those toys will peek his interest and become boredom busters.

Maybe a designated area, get a playpen type thing to put him in for play time...one of those wire ones. He can then have his own space away from the not chewable stuff, ull be surprised how smart they are.. just like dogs, if u tell them NO everytime they do it and shoo him away from there, eventually they will learn the comand and turn away the minute they hear it. My bunny isn't allowed upstairs and he now knows that when I say no he has to get away or turn away because he's not allowed. This means constant supervision and consistant training...just like a kid and a puppy.  Good luck, my bunny doesnt care for toys either b.t.w

I don't know if my answer is appropriate but this issue really seems to be more training and management related. Rabbits are very smart and can be taught the "leave it" command and you can focus on redirecting the chewing on unwanted things to chewing on okay things.

If you need any training advice, please feel free to send me a PM.
