A great cage-mounted foraging toy for our smaller birds, this simple yet enjoyable toy is perfect for Budgies, Lovebirds and Cockatiels. Watch as your bird learns to tip the pod to retrieve the reward from the tray below. Be sure to check out the video tab on this page to see this toy in use! Please note that there is a mirror that makes up the back wall of this toy. Mirrors have been found to be popular with these breeds of bird in particular, so it may help encourage your bird to this toy while they're learning. Once they have learned to use the foraging part of this toy, you may wish to cover the mirror with some paper to avoid your bird becoming obsessed with their reflection. I have done this with my own birds' toy and found it successful.
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.
Natural ladders that are handmade, for each order.Each rung of the ladder will be a piece of branch from a native tree, with lots of bark for your small birds’ feet and nails. Ladder rungs are roughly 7cm across and an appropriate thickness for a Budgie. 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. I make a loop on each of the 4 ends. You can then attach a pear clip or other hanging link to each end. 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 can be made in a matter of days). Feel free to contact me before placing an order to check availability.Contact via my Facebook Page or email to firstname.lastname@example.org is preferred.

Now making 'Christmas-themed' colours in these popular foot toys! 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. Red and green items will be used for these Christmas-themed toys. There is a yellow or orange 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. First (main) photo shows the recent Christmas ones I've made. Other photos of my own birds show the normal version, with variable colours, in use.
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, a dozen finger traps each held on with a birdy bagel bite and with shredded crinkly paper stuffed in the end of each bagel, it's got plenty to chew! Now made in Christmas colours! Select from normal (pink and green) or vibrant (blue, red & green). 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. Triangle link at the base is nickel plated as I cannot source stainless steel ones. All photos show the Christmas themed varieties that I've made so far, except for the last image, which shows a customers' Cockatiel using the normal colour variety of the Firecracker toy.
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.

They are quite light which makes them suitable for small parrots.

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.
