Talking more toys....

a huge shocker right? toys, toys, toys......

i have added seed and water cups and some toys to my window play gym






i made a snuggle swing which leon was modeling, only because i took "The Toy" out :P




some foraging things in an egg carton. i was originally going to put actual foraging toys (not just hay) in, but my guys would never make the effort to actually forage so i made it so they could pull the hay out instead. it should have been made with the top of the carton too, but i through those out and i had to make a bottom for it




these could be fill with more things for parrots, but i was making them for my rabbit so i used hay, and then i tied them all together (paper jack-o-lanterns anyone?)




this was a toy made from scraps and some mini popsicle sticks with crumpled paper at the top


another scrap toy, just a paper shredder


a toy i made for my rabbit


rubber duck toy for the birds with cuttle bone, jute stick and wood... etc


vine moon with birdy bagels and plastic links


i got this building block ( 1.5x1.5x 6 in) and i didnt think it would be that big, i still managed to make something out of it though it is a better sized for cockatiels and up!




this toy had hay but it was getting old, so i took it apart and replaced the hay and put it back together


some random things i put together


balsa, vine, and palm shredder

updated pics of my closet and there are a lot of DIY toys that arent in there because they are in the cages!!


i have made 60+ toys so far


i went to AC Moore (craft store) and picked up some 29c wood cut outs and attempted to use food coloring to dye them, not like it mattered because they were filled with things!

palm tree


anchor


and an updated pic of my mini tree that is not tied together and still has yet to be mounted on a base!


i hope everyone enjoyed my pics and i hope to see more thread of toys that every one else is making!!

I use orchard grass by Kaytee for the birds and I just use second cutting hay for my rabbit


I guess I am saving money because toys are so much and because it ordering online, I dont have to pay, my parents do
