You're right about being careful in the materials used to make toys. I don't think you're paranoid at all! I've made some toys and then taken a look at them, especially through the eyes of a teeny Parrolet like Angelina, and decided nope, that loop is too large or that bead is too smal, stuff like that.
My cimbing net has been in use for over a year now, first by a Parrotlet and now by a Conure, and even though I see them chewing on it a little, there've been no problems, so I feel it's safe.
These birdies will get into anything and everything they can, so it sure doesn't hurt to be VERY careful!
