A sisal boing that is long but with thin rope suitable for Budgies through to Indian Ringnecks. It is similar in size to the Small Paradise toys boing (PT364), though with sisal that is darker brown and softer.This boing measures 175cm long (total rope length) and the rope is 1.5cm in diameter. With wire inside the rope, you can shape the boing to sit how you'd like it to. It typically sits 60 to 80cm tall when in wide loops as shown in the image.
These Feather Weight foot toys are so versatile! You can use them for foraging as you can hide food in the ridges of each 'bobble' for your bird to dig out. They can be given as a foot toy and the mini ones can be put inside many other foraging toys or hidden around the cage. The rings can be used as toy parts, hung from other toys, given as a foot toy or placed around your birds' perches. Because they are made as kids toys, with non-toxic plastic, they are as safe as possible for your bird to chew. I use these daily for my own birds, hiding seeds and small pellets in the ridges and using them through the foraging toys in their cages. Take a look at all the videos in the tab below of the various foot toys in use. Please note the videos also show the 'small and medium' ones in use. These sizes are currently unavailable, but the mini (single ball) and rings (5 balls in a loop) are available. Each ball is about 2cm in diameter and are available in blue, green, yellow, orange, pink, purple and red as pictured. A random selection of colours will be chosen for you unless otherwise requested.
The new Braided Vine Wreath toy, by Caitec, is a fun, colourful chewing toy. With 10 bright 4cm vine balls (coloured with food safe dye) and woven plant material between. Watch your bird delight in chewing, preening and shredding at this toy or hide some dry food treats inside the vine balls for a foraging surprise. The toy hangs from nickel plated chain and pear clip. It measures a total of 30cm long. The diameter of the wreath is 19cm and it is 4cm deep.
This is a great, chewable toy that will help to keep your parrot amused. With lots of colourful crinkly paper trapped within 2 cane baskets, what's not to love! There's a coloured vine star tied to either side of the toy with seagrass rope and a dingly bell at the bottom. The toy can be opened (by removing a few plastic c links) for your birds' treats or beads to be hidden inside and to refill it with crinkly paper. The toy measures 28cm long, 13cm wide and 17cm deep. It hangs from nickel plated pear clip. The Basket Case has been a long time favourite here. In July 2018 it has had a slight update. The overall design and price are the same, however the basket has changed its' looks just a little. The new item is pictured. The old basket was plain in colour.
Balsa is a very soft timber that is satisfying to chew and is a favourite for many small parrots. I made this toy as a birthday present for Larry the female Cockatiel, who is owned by one of my wonderful customers. She is pictured with her toy and has chosen to name it 'Balsa Heaven'. This toy incorporates long, thin slats of balsa, with some colourful beads and a small pacifier at the bottom, all threaded onto stainless steel wire. A loop is made at the top of the toy to attach a hanging link to. The toy measures roughly 17cm tall and 15cm wide and the balsa can be fanned out or laid flat depending on your cage set up. Fantastic for Budgies, Lovebirds, Cockatiels, Conures and Quakers.
This natural swing is made to suit small to medium parrots. An individual or pair of Cockatiels, Conures, Quakers, Lorikeets or Caiques could comfortably use this swing, or an individual Indian Ringneck, Alexandrine or Mini Macaw. One of the most popular of the original "Kirsty's Natural Bird Toys", this toy is handmade and has a natural branch perch that is 20-25cm wide, with lots of bark for your parrots' feet and nails. Lining the side is a seasonal mix of Australian Gumnuts, Casuarina and Liquid Amber pods plus native branch pieces, balsa bricks, vine balls/rings, birdy bagels, yucca pieces, woven leaf shredding strips and finger trap pieces, threaded onto stainless steel wire. Even the occasional small Pinecone or Banksia cone is added to one of these swings. It hangs from a short length of stainless steel chain and small 'O' ring to attach a hanging link to. I also make these in small, large and extra large to suit a wide range of bird breeds. These natural toys are handmade and the seed pods are seasonally available. Therefore, every toy does differ and contains a mix of dry/open and green/closed seed pods. Please contact me before purchase if you have specific wishes or want to check availability of certain seed pods.
A new toy from Super Bird, 'Sitting Pretty' is a cute, chewable toy for the little guys. With a lots of coloured chunks of 'Sola' threaded on vege tanned leather, a little cane basket and a cute duck toy inside. There's a bell hanging at the bottom and this toy comes with a nickel plated pear clip. Sola is another soft plant material that is similar to yucca and balsa. It is soft and satisfying to chew for smaller parrots who often don't chew on harder timber. The toy measures a total of 24cm tall (including pear clip and bell), with the main body of the tall sitting 18cm tall, 11cm wide and 4cm deep. The later photos show the toy in use with various photos from customers. The last 2 show my new Budgie who has spent the last few weeks enjoying chewing up his sola.
Corner shelves are a great way to utilise space that may be otherwise difficult to make fun! Pop this platform high up in your birds cage as a nice roosting spot or at another level, with foot toys as a play area for your parrot. It can also be handy to place this near to a bolt-on foraging toy to provide access to that level of the cage. Popular with able-bodied and handicapped birds, it provides a nice spot to 'chill out'. The bars and sides of the platform are powder-coated. It attaches to the cage with bolts and rectangular 'washers' and will fit most cage and aviary bars. See the last 4 photos for an example of the corner shelf set up in a small, travel cage that has horizontal bars on one side and vertical bars on the other. The bolt with the fixed wingnut head screws straight into the hole in the corner shelf, eliminating the need for loose parts on the inside and outside of the cage. The shelf has a large 'lip' on the curved edge. It is pictured with the lip facing downwards, however it can also be positioned the other way, with the lip facing up. This would hold small items like foot toys on the shelf (until your bird throws them over the edge). I also offer the option of adding a piece of woven seagrass mat onto the platform for a chewable, safe & comfy perching spot for your bird. Replacements can be purchased separately for once the mat gets chewed. I use seagrass mats from Bunnings, that I wash and then soak in F10 veterinary disinfectant. They are thoroughly sun dried then cut to size, using a few small zip ties to stop the cut ends from fraying. The seagrass mat is then attached to the Sundeck with a few more small zip ties.You can choose to make these seagrass covers yourself, however it's recommended to wash the mats well before use.
A large rectangular plastic dish with metal hooks to attach to the bars of the cage. This is a large dish that makes a great foraging tray and is great for birds that don't like to be down low/on the ground of their cage. It comes with a 500g pack of bird safe foraging substrate to get you started. Please introduce the concept of foraging for food gradually to your birds. Feel free to contact me to discuss if you need assistance with this. The rectangular dish measures 23cm wide, 12.5cm deep and is 7cm tall, it is suitable for most breeds of parrot, but particularly small and medium birds. The hook on attachment suits most cage bars.
A cute little foot toy that is fun to chew. This toy is handmade by me, with a rolled paper stick and a 2cm vine ball, both are coloured with food safe dyes. There is a butterfly or star bead at the top of the toy and pony bead at the bottom, to hold the vine ball in place. While the beads are fixed, the vine ball can move around a bit. This toy is great for a foraging treat too, put a dry treat inside the vine ball for your bird to retrieve. They are quite light which makes them suitable for small parrots. I hand make these in a variety of colours, using both star beads and butterfly beads at the top. A random colour will be chosen for you, though you can request preferences in your order notes.
The new Birdy Bagel Firecracker is a toy handmade by me to meet your small parrots' chewing and preening desires! With a 10cm birdy bagel as the base, surrounded by colourful finger traps each held on with a birdy bagel bite and with shredded crinkly paper stuffed in the end of each finger trap, it's got plenty to chew! Your small and medium parrots will delight in chewing and preening this toy and the best part is, you can replenish it with the toy parts in my store once it's been demolished! The toy measures 20cm wide and 25cm tall. It is fantastic for Budgies through to Indian Ringnecks. It hangs from a stainless steel chain and you can choose a hanging link to suit. The triangle link at the base is nickel plated as I cannot source stainless steel ones.
Holy Gumballs! Is a small to medium sized toy with lots of fun things happening! There's so many colours and textures for your bird to explore and so many places you could hide food treats to encourage foraging behaviour too. With lots of rolled paper sticks poking out of the piece of timber in the middle (these are all coloured with food safe dyes), plastic flowers, wiffle balls, a nickel-plated bell and 2 mini 'Feather Weight Stars', Holy Gumballs will satisfy the tactile and visual needs of your bird. To add a foraging component, you can wedge thin treats like hulled oats or slivered almond pieces in the mini Feather Weight Stars, you can put dry treats inside the wiffle ball or stick pieces of paper straws in the holes (the paper straws can have treats inside too!) and you can even wedge pieces of food into the rolled paper sticks for your bird to retrieve. The last 2 photos show examples of this. This toy measures roughly 24cm long (including pear clip and bell) and 17cm wide, it suits most small to medium parrots.
A selection of 20 various pieces of Yucca. Yucca is a type of plant and these pieces of dried plant stalk are bird safe, soft and chewable. Parrots, small and large love munching on the soft, fibrous natural material. It's great to give as a foot toy or thread onto other toys. You can poke a hole with skewer, wire or scissors and hang it in your birds' cage. By making small holes in the Yucca and pushing dry food treats into it, you can make this a foraging foot toy also. As a natural item, the pieces do vary and a fair selection will be chosen for you. The last photo is an example of how food can be stuck in the yucca. This is a different size/style of Yucca to the item - see "5 Yucca Slices" for this style of Yucca piece.Yucca, also known as 'yukka'.
This is well designed, foraging toy made by the Australian company 'My Parrot Shop'. You can hide treats, beads and normal diet/pellets within the many 'wells' of this toy which are placed on each level of the pyramid (except for the top block).
Your bird will need to spin the levels to access the food wells and get their reward. It is made with 100% stainless steel hardware, including the pear clip/small quick link and uses safe, vegetable dyed timber. Each pyramid is slightly different and colours vary. The small measures 11 x 11cm wide and 12cm tall. Medium and large are also available.
These are super cute little maraca rattles that are great as a foot toy for an inquisitive parrot. There are small beads inside that clatter and rattle around making a pleasing sound for your bird. They can also be threaded onto wire or a very small 'O' ring through the roughly 2mm hole in the tip of the handle and used as a toy part. Each maraca measures about 7cm long and 2.5cm in diameter and the widest point. Colours are as displayed (purple, blue, pink, green and yellow) and a random selection will be chosen for you.
The plastic isn't sturdy enough to withstand the chewing of larger parrots but they make good foot toys with supervision and are great additions to the cage for non-destructive birds.
A 20cm long, natural chew for small parrots. One of the original "Kirsty's Natural Bird Toys", this toy is handmade with Australian native seed pods and other natural parts like yucca, threaded onto stainless steel wire. A loop is made at the top of the toy to attach a hanging link to. You can add an element of foraging to your birds' environment by hiding millet, pellets or other treats in the small openings in the dry seed pods, as shown in the last 2 pictures as an example. These natural toys are handmade and the seed pods are seasonally available. Therefore, every toy does differ and contains a mix of dry/open and green/closed seed pods. Please contact me before purchase if you have specific wishes or want to check availability of certain seed pods.
