Talking Shredder toys

i had some more ideas for toys i ordered some more toy parts, so there will be more on the way!

i get all my toy parts at mysafebirdstore.com. they are very nice there and have great prices!! YOU could be the one making toys!!

i just had to get this sneaker last time. i ordered 2 more and i will put more effort into the others


this one has a 2cm vine ball and crinkle paper shoved into the cup. i made this one to use up the springy things


this one i got the idea from my Drs Foster and Smith bird magazine. they were selling theirs for $7.60, some size as mine, but i have balsa added to mine. i made mine for about $1!!!




this is a balsa forager thing. this will probably be for the boys, because Pickles would destroy it in a day!


with crinkle paper


balsa and palm shredder


2x4 inch balsa with loosely wrapped paper for a quick shredder toy


1" birdy bagels wit braided raffia, balsa squares, vine ring and finger traps, and a duck!


another shredder toy. top to middle- palm shredder, 1/2 cane tornado, jute stick, finger trap, braided raffia, natural root



and for my favorite picture..... all of my current toys that are not being used!! i want to say that there is about 15-20 toys not included because they are either given away, destroyed, or to high up on the tree to reach!
