Today I was visiting my local dollar store and saw a decoration type thing...

It looked exactly like a bird orb.. And for 1 simple payment of 1 dollar. :giggle:

I also saw a whole bunch of other things that could be really good for toys and such so I'm going back tomorrow to buy things.. And make some adjustment to them but I'll post photos tomorrow!

I've bought several things at the dollar tree for making bird toys. But I've never seen a bird orb. That would be awesome! What section was it in? My birds love the one I bought for way more than one dollar.

well the orb thing was like a kinda dream catcher thing

lol and the blue robe was a dog chewtoy..soo.. if its safe for dogs to chew on.. it should be good for birds to chew on.. :)

i just cut the bird catcher decorations off.. the wrapped the rope around the rings and put it back togethor. :)

im going to go buy more.. maybe make some bird boings :D

Dollar stores are great for finding stuff like that... BUT Be VERY careful as often times these items can contain lead, and that would be very bad for the birds. Also avoid anything made by Hartz (they are NOT pet lovers, and have no quality control and do not care if pets are injured by their products, as they often are). Our news station did lead testing on a ton of stuff (primarily cheap dollar store type items) and so many contained lead. Even plush animals, dog toys, and things like that! That's why I like to make my toys from all natural things.

Hey thanks for this post. I bought two of the dog frisbee/rope thingies and made an orbit for my GCC. She LOVES it. I tied a bell and a toy on it. She gets so excited when I ring the bell and bobs her head up and down. :lol:

That's great! Never thought about going the dollar store. That's a great idea.
