good toys for cockatoo?

so I want to make sure I properly stimulate my G2 so I was wondering what kind of toys other cockatoos like? So far he likes foraging boxes, vines balls, waffle balls, and wood toys

The breeder I got my GCC from had Joseph, a cockatoo. She had loads of acrylic puzzle toys, cardboard shredders and leather knot toys for him.

Take a newspaper, and entire one, roll it up and hang it. It's a great toy for them.
