I have a cage very similar to that one. Mine is wider and has a stand on the top. I think they are a great cage. Nice large door and plenty of feed and water containers. I use it for a cockatoo.
As for toys. Lory's are pretty easy going with toys and usually enjoy very simple cheap toys. A swing, even if it is only a lenght of chain hanging from the top of the cage. They can grab onto the chain and do 360's with it. They love spinning. The cardboard centre of a toilet roll is an all time favourite. Really easy to replace when they have destroyed it. Mine will stick their head in one end and yell, using it as a megaphone. They will also put it on their head and run around the cage, running into the sides and if like me they have food and water containers on the floor falling over them as well. The other toy mine like is an empty soda can. They have a great time kicking that around like a football, it's great cause it makes noise.
You might also look at having a happy hut for him. Lory's just love sleeping inside one or a nest box, even if they don't have a mate or want to breed. They love sleeping inside something rather than sleeping on a perch.
Another thing is they usually prefer to climb around the place rather than fly. At least mine do. Hanging from the top of the cage by one toe nail is great fun.
