3 lame toys...

i attempted to make toys the other day and failed… i am running out of ideas

i really need to get creative again…

this one isn't too bad


this is simply a rolled up egg carton, only because Mrs. Pickles is obsessed with them (and its better than her chewing my window). it is now completely chewed


i put it on the tree to keep her busy though out the day


i am sooooo not proud of this toy the woven vine base is bigger behind the paper. the thing on the bottom is a banana leaf roll that i ordered with the toy parts. i think they will like chewing on it



*LAME*

Hey it doesn't matter what they look like (even though they're not bad at all!), it's how they're used

Hey at least you are trying--that is what counts. I have supplies to make toys but I've only made 2 and I'm picky what type of toys my kids have, so you would think I would try. I say good job!

Pickles loves the egg carton! The others I have put aside for later use when any toy needs to be replaced or switched out

Function over form All my homemade toys look bulky and strange, I can't make cute toys to save my life. But the birds love destroying them, so that's all that matters!

Your toys look cute by the way! Much cuter than the ones I've made lol

They actually look pretty good. Of course, what really matters is how the birds like them!
