How cute! I bought 2 of those when I had 2 Parrotlets and neither one would go near them -- even with treats inside! Angelina won't go in either! Darn it!

Where do you find jolly balls? Or are they regular waffle balls?

They are actually called "Jolly Balls" and come in different sizes for small to large birds. Mine hang by chains that have a few little toys strung on them, and I've seen some with more decorations.

Here's a pic of the small size to give you an idea. This one has a lot more decorations on it than mine, but lots of people add stuff to theirs. They're cute -- unfortunately my birds wouldn't use them, in or outside their cages!

The bird shop where I purchased my birds, their food, most of their toys, etc., used to carry them, but don't know if they do any more or not. I'm sure you can find them on line though.

I saw some on that birdyboredome site that was on the one pic that you showed. I'm gonna look in stores near where I live either the petco in my area or in cranberry or in petsmart in cranberry before geting one from the site. I need to get my budgies more stuff to keep sunshine(my female who keeps trying to get out when she's bord or goes through her cuddle bone holder where they would stand on) since right now they have 3 toys and 1 swing. I'm getitng them more toys for xmas. all 5 birds have 3 each but going to make it a few more.

They can never have enough toys! My birds each have an HQ flight cage, which has plenty of room for toys, so they each have five or six toys in their cages, plus varying sizes of perches and Booda perches, swings, etc. They have so many toys, that they each have a toy box! I rotate their toys every couple of weeks to keep their interest up. I also make as many of their toys as possible -- so much cheaper that way and fun to do too -- and they play with the homemade ones just as much as the store bought ones!

CUTE! Real good pics!

Russ just hangs out on her spiral (which isn't a toy for her, it's a decorating thing) and likes her pegs. Our pet stores around here (what pet stores!!! for a capital city, we're shocking with pet stores), we have useless stuff for birds, so I'm gonna check that site out
