New toys I made!

Went to Walmart, found some toy parts so I had to make more toys

First toy has swirly straws that she LOVES to chew.

2nd is a coconut that was really cheap and already had holes pre-drilled. I'm thinking of drilling some holes so I can hang things from the coconut as well

3rd is a dog toy that I turned into a swing and ice loves that as well
I hide hemp seeds in between the rope and she loves to forage for them
