Angry Reasons why I don't do crafts

I was going to get some regular round beads for some kind of bird toy and Walmart didn't have any! They just had these pretty glittery beads.

Some have glitter, some have designs, and some are clear shaped things.

Would it hurt to use the ones without glitter? Gonna supervise them of course but just checking anyway.

I'll probs post a pic once I sort them out by what they are.

I wouldn't buy anything from Wally World when making birds toys, you just can't be sure where they got their products from and whether or not the beads or what ever have been painted with toxic paints or chemicals.

Check online for places that sell bird toy supplies. These places make sure the beads are wooden and not sprayed with chemicals etc. They assure the products they sell you are not painted with toxic paints etc. It's just better to be safe when making toys for your birds to use the proper materials easily available online.

Personally I feel the online toy supplies for birds are much cheaper and the variety they have is greater then anything you will ever find at Walmart.

I'd stick to online stores or bird specific stores that you know will take their safety into consideration
