Talking Above cage playgyms?

Hey guys! So I have a Yellow Collared Mini Monkey who climbs on EVERYTHING. Because of this I really want to build him a playground above his cage. So far I only have a boing that hangs from the ceiling down to his cage (that's no fun) and I really want to make it bigger, but I am fresh out of ideas. I'd love to see your gyms, even if they aren't above the cage! Also, if you could tell me where you got your toys/boings/climby things that would be AWESOME! Any size gym for any sized bird would be great! Thanks in advance!

I got a lot of my linnie's toys at Happy Wings shop on Etsy. Lori makes everything herself. Everything is excellent quality and she has a large selection. I love everything I've gotten from her and so has my linnie!Her handmade foot toys are adorable!!


And God said, "...let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the sky." And God saw that it was good.

Thank you! I will have to check her out. Do you have any toys in particular you like? Or are they all you favorite?

The foot toys are my favorites. Lori will make them to fit the size bird...she made me smaller ones for my budgies and they are adorable. My budgies love to toss them off the cage roof. My linnie loves them too!

The foot toys were really cute!!! But Samson isn't really into those kinds of things. He's more into toys that he can munch on and break into tiny splinters lol. Same with the budgies. Although giving them things to throw probably wouldn't be such a bad idea. Skye loves knocking perches down.
