simple toys

i was out of ideas for making toys with the usual toy parts, so i make some simple toys

dixie cup forager (which totally didn't work out for keeping pickles occupied, she just shoveled all the food out or swung it around to spill it XD )


for the record, this one was supposed to be made with whole popsicle sticks and should have been more of a triangle shape! next time i ail have some normal sized popsicle sticks in stock


i tied together a net and put some hay and crinkle paper in it.


straw and sisal preening toy


the "box jellyfish" with hay


double boxes


and a building wheel with cardboard, paper and egg carton


even those toys won't be good enough for pickles. she will continue to chew on my window, curtains, and trying to take the license plate i made off the wall

I know pickles will like the one with the egg cartons! I am interested to see who plays with the hay filled boxes

That comment about Pickles is too funny. I love the toys. Great job.
