This is a cute little foraging toy that is great for the smaller breeds of birds. Fill it with your bird’s favourite treats, and their normal diet.
Your bird will need to spin the maze by holding onto the opening and moving it around. The wheel spins freely and your bird can watch their food move from shelf to shelf until it reaches the opening. By adding bird safe foraging substrate, you can increase the difficulty of this maze once your bird is experienced at it. The maze fits together as 2 pieces and is held firmly by the bolt and washers attaching it, however it can be taken apart for easy cleaning.
This toy is made from tough, clear and coloured acrylic and will hold up against even the tougher beaks. It is the small version of this toy, a large is also available and both are pictured in the last image. The small measures 10cm in diameter and roughly 3cm thick/deep. Screws onto the side of the cage with the nut and bolt set, as well as 2 washers. Fits all cage/aviary bars.
The Small Orange is a toy made from soft pine that is coloured with food safe vegetable dyes. There are more coloured timber pieces hanging from soft plastic strands that hang from both sides of the toy.
The toy measures 7cm x 22cm, including the nickel plated chain and pear clip.
The Creative Foraging Systems Hanging Box Feeder toy is great for feeding your birds’ dry food and treats. Fill with bird safe foraging substrate to make the food harder to get to and more time consuming for your bird.
Your can introduce this to your bird at an easy level, without any covering at first. Once they know there’s food in the toy, you can start covering it with the sleeves provided for them to work more for their food. Your clever parrot will need to chew open the cardboard box to access the rewards inside! The cardboard sleeves come with various perforated openings that you can remove as ‘windows’ to the food inside, another great way to adjust the difficulty as your bird learns. The Hanging Box Feeder comes with 2 sleeves in the pack already and refill packs of 5 sleeves can be purchased separately.
This toy is made from clear polycarbonate and hangs on a short chain with pear clip to attach it to your birds’ cage.
This is a great, chewable toy made by Super Bird that will help to keep your parrot amused. With lots of colourful paper sticks, what’s not to love! Each brightly coloured stick is made from tightly rolled paper and is coloured with safe food dye. They are attached securely into the coloured wood block, which attaches to the cage.
The Paper Party Toy can be attached from the top of the cage (similar to the Squidalicious toys) but is best used horizontally from the side of the cage where it then becomes a perch as well as a toy.
Measures roughly 11 x 4cm and fans out to about 4cm at the end. Attaches to cage bars with a small stainless steel bolt/washer/wingnut set. Colours do vary and will be chosen at random.
This woven foot toy is another great design from Planet Pleasures who make amazing natural toys. With woven palm leaf, coloured with food safe dyes, this toy is sure to delight your parrot. This foot toy is the miniature version of the hanging Fire Wheel toys. Just like their larger varieties, you can hide pieces of treats in between the woven sections for your bird to find.
Each foot toy measures 3.5cm in diameter and 1.5cm thick. They are quite light which makes them suitable for small parrots.
The Crystal Pop is a delightful foot toy made by Australian Company, My Parrot Shop. With 8 colourful beads and a mini pacifier sitting between 4 knots in the vegetable tanned leather, your small parrot will enjoy manipulating the beads around, chewing the soft leather and untying the knots!
This one is a particular favourite of Lorikeets and Conures. It comes in many colours and a random colour will be selected unless requested.
This great little climbing net is ideal for those smaller feet and beaks! Designed with Budgies, Lovebirds & Cockatiels in mind, the diameter of the rope pieces is 3-4mm. It is made from hemp which is a natural fibre that is a lot safer for your bird to nibble on than cotton or other ropes. It is actually small enough to fit reasonably within your birds cage, or can be set up as part of a play area out of the cage.
The net measures 40cm x 40cm and doesn’t come with hanging links. You can purchase these separately or hang around existing perches if you get creative.
Bright and colourful rolled paper sticks dyed with food-safe vegetable dye hang from a pleasantly shaped wooden cup. Hang and watch as your bird begins to unravel this paper treasure with glee. This is a great little toy for birds that like to shred things.
This toy is made by Australian company, My Parrot Shop and contains FDA approved child-safe glue.
Take a look at the Super Bird Paper Party Toy for the horizontal, perch version of this toy.
The body of the Small Squidalicious measures 12 x 3cm and it hangs a total of 21cm tall from the stainless steel chain with ‘o’ ring at the top. It does not come with a hanging link which can be purchased separately.
The Jellyfish is full of soft, squidgy vegetable tanned leather which is delightful to chew and safe for your bird. Adorned with colourful beads and squares of leather hanging between knots in the leather rope, this will be a fun toy for your small parrot to nibble and manipulate.
The Jellyfish is made by Australian Company, My Parrot Shop and measures 18cm long and 4cm wide. There is a stainless steel ‘o’ ring at the top to attach your own hanging link of your choosing. It comes in a range of colours.
Natural ladders that are handmade, custom for each order.
Each rung of the ladder will be a piece of branch from a native tree, 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 the ladders.
Please select from the options to customise your ladder. If you have other requests, please include them in the order notes and/or contact me first to discuss your requirements. I make a loop on each of the 4 ends, which you can then attach a pear clip or other hanging link to.
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.
These ladders do take a bit of time for me to make and I do this in addition to my job as a vet nurse. I also prefer to use fresh seed pods that I collect once I have an order, so please allow up to 1 – 2 weeks for your order to be made (though some may be made in a matter of days too). Feel free to contact me before placing an order to check availability.
Vine Balls are a great, versatile item. They can be used as a chewable foot toy, put food inside and use it within a foraging toy or even on its’ own as a foraging foot toy! Lastly, they make a great toy part as you can thread them onto wire, chain or rope as part of a toy.
Each vine ball is made from wound grape vine and is roughly 2cm in diameter, but do vary as they are natural products. Larger vine balls are also available in my store.
Wow! We love the new T Perch by Planet Pleasures! This is a new design that is a great addition to a shared cage or aviary of small parrots to enjoy or for your ‘little monkey’ in their play area or cage, it’s a great climbing toy! The diameter of the perch is 1.25cm which makes it perfect for the small feet of Budgies through to Caiques. It is made from natural, bird safe abaca rope.
The T Perch measures 30cm tall and 45cm wide. It comes with a sturdy loop at the top to attach a hanging link too. Quick links are the most suitable link as the diameter of the loop is a bit snug for a standard pear clip. However, a c-link and straw bead would also do the job well.
A handy, easy to use ‘sundeck’ platform for your bird to relax on. The arms hook onto the horizontal bars of the cage and the platform sits flat below it. These are versatile items that suit most cage designs. 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 all birds, these are great for handicapped parrots, with mobility or stability issues too.
The platform measures 20cm wide, 16cm deep and the arms are 10cm tall (the platform will sit 10cm below the horizontal bars that it hooks onto). They come with plain, coated bars which you can safely use as is or cover yourself with native bark or similar.
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, how it’s recommended to wash the mats well before use
These colourful little tea cups are too cute to pass by!
With different faces on each cup and a handle that can be held my many breeds of birds, they make a great foot toy. Train your bird to hold it with their foot while they ‘drink’ out of the cup for a reward. You can use them as a toy part or just hang the cups in your birds cage. Mini Feather Weight Foot Toys fit well within the cup, as do 2cm Vine Balls and many pellets and smaller nuts. There is a video in the tab below showing the cup in use.
There is a gap in the handle, big enough for stainless steel ‘o’ rings and small rope to pass through to hang the cup or use it as a toy part.
A great new toy by Super Bird Creations, this is a small hanging wreath with lots of coloured vine balls and cute daisy flowers. In the middle there is a bell and it all hangs from a nickel plated pear clip.
The Daisy Ring measures 15cm tall, including the pear clip and 11cm wide.
LAST ONES LEFT! These products have sadly been discontinued by the manufacturer. I only have mini’s left now, no small, medium or rings left I’m sorry.
These Featherweight 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, put inside many other foraging toys or hidden around the cage. 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.
Each ball is about 2cm in diameter and are available in blue, green, yellow, orange, pink and red as pictured. A random selection of colours will be chosen for you unless otherwise requested.
