various toys and a rope net

some more toys with bells and mirrors to make my partners in crime happy

mirror and bells with loose movable beads at bottom. i found pre-cut mirrors in different sizes at AC Moore




mirror, hay, cuttle bone, seed block, beads on string, and a tooth pick with secured beads that slides in the cardboard. the beads are jammed onto the toothpick to give it round edges, the whole unit slides, not the beads!



a shredder book for the little birds or "foot notes" (foot toys) for the bigger birds! leon has started eating up the pages!



bell with basket of safe sized beads to play and throw around. **in the bead and bell strand, the second piece of string is threaded through the top bead only and was cut and taken out so no heads could get stuck **



small 15" x 10" rope net made out of 'paracord' for my tree

thats why i like home made toys. you can just make them and then if they are ruined, you can just make another for little or no money
