Conure Toys?

I'm wondering what is the best kind of toys to get for a conure. I will be posting some discruction pics of what she did with her current toys. She destroyed her hanging mirror toy, her dice. Her disco ball doesnt look as if it's gonna make it though her babble ball is still surfiving her attacks on it. I'd like to know what type of toys are best for Honey to have. I know the shredding toys she'll LOVE. but what other toys that have the bells and stuff that are strong?

You need to buy chunky wooden toys, stainless steel and acrylic toys... Little toys for budgies are to flimsy for conures and will not last.

I would say no to both of these as they are 1) old and may be contaminated with unknown toxins... 2) they are made of unknown materials and most likely not bird safe.
