did some one say- more toys?!

while waiting to to get my new fids, i have been making toys!!

all of these are really easy great for small parrots

my first non-symetrical toys




vine ball that i decided to shove hay and confetti into


it turns out that they really liked it!


straws and paper. i found out that the round tooth picks (not the flat ones) are really nice for making holes in the straws, and it makes the perfect size hole for my hemp to fit through


random natural material toy


draw-string hay bag. 4 corners are drawn together and the bottom has a lot of holes to tear more or grab hay from. (this was a toy i made from a square of paper i found and i put it to use!)


crumpling the paper before it has hay in it makes it more 'flexible' so it doesnt have bulky folds in it when it is closed up


preening egg carton toy


millet 'planter'


i used the tooth pick again to make the right sized hole for the millet base so it is snug (my guys dont touch the paper covered twist tie, you can use sting to tie it up instead)


popsicle and palm shredder pieces


:P my floor when i am making toys! it is a mess of toy parts!

Congratulations on them. I might have to steal some of these toy ideas.
