Wink and the toys keep coming...

some toys i made recently i am ordering even more toy parts from mysafebirdstore.com and i still have a lot of toy parts left to use!

sisal, balsa, plastic rings, cane spring at bottom


6cm vine ball stuffed with hay and oat sprays, with "finger traps" and crinkle paper at the bottom. a toy for my friends birds


another toy for my friend. mini cupcake liners, palm shredder, paper squares


thin dowel with different plastic balls and 2" plastic rings, all parts spin. leon likes playing with it now that its on the tree




some random things on cardboard. brown- braided raffia, orange- sisal, left- paper twists and oat sprays


and an updated picture of my tree with leon and butch playing on it

You dont have to be good at making them and they don't have to be top knotch, all that matters is that our birds like them

Very talented and clever! Your fids really look like they enjoy them!

I made two very recently like your first photo with the colored wood. Our Budgies like it, the Linnies don't really pay attention to it. Thanks for your ideas. you DO have lucky birds
