7 new toys...

i am running out of names to call my toy threads!!

all of the wood in these is balsa, i really hope my guys like chewing balsa

this includes jute sticks


not one of the new toys, but this is my foraging bin that gets little use...


this is a mini version on the idea of the red building block toy in another thread of mine. vertical balsa base with horizontal holes, threaded string though and added to the string


a different angle where the vertical base is more visible


again, not a new toy, but just for the heck of it i hung the mini tree upside down to see what it looked like- i took it down after because they didnt care for it there


i had to put butch and leon on it. they werent too exited


back to the new toys~~
a mobile foraging cup, or seed/pellet/nutriberry




another toy with a balsa base. im not to happy with this toy so i gave it to leon right away. he didnt touch it the straws are curled from some craft thing called a "whacky whirly" that i got a long time ago. i cuts straws into a spiral


hot air balloon


simple paper string/balsa/pacifier toy


balsa threaded through birdy bagels, with palm shredder, and natural curls... etc (and a duck!)

OMG! These are the exact types of toys I want to start making for my birds. Where do you buy your parts, specifically the balsa? What type of string do you use, and where do you get that? Thanks!

i get all the toy parts from www.mysafebrirdstore.com and they do sell balsa, but it like $2.-- for 12 pieces so i go to AC Moore and i use a 40-50% off coupon and get my balsa there. i also go the beads and pacifiers at AC Moore
