The Large Apple is a toy made from soft pine that is coloured with food safe vegetable dyes. There are stacks and stacks of coloured timber pieces hanging from nickel plated chain that sits through both sides of the toy. To top it off there are 6 wiffle balls (great for hiding food and paper straws inside!) and 2 bells attached as well. Just like real apples, they come in green and red.
Your medium to large parrot will enjoy chewing and shaking this toy about.
The toy measures 17.5cm x 62cm, including the nickel plated chain and quick link.
This new shredding toy is made from natural, woven leaf material and offers lots of textures and chunks to chew on. There’s coloured, soft, wooden discs threaded at different points through the toy and some crinkly paper cord to preen and chew too! The Frond Lanyard is delightful as a chewing toy but you can also use the many nooks and crannies in the woven rope to hide food. Turn this into a fun foraging toy by adding your birds’ favourite treats for them to find. You can see examples in the last photo and in the video tab!
The body of the toy measures 27 x 13cm and hangs 10cm taller on the nickel plated chain and pear clip.
The Multi-Crunch is great chewing and preening toy that can be used for foraging too!
It has 9 safe, crunchy vine balls and pine pieces, hanging from vegetable tanned leather, underneath a reed bowl. By separating gaps in the vine balls to hide dry food treats like nuts, large pellets and paper-wrapped goodies for your bird to work for, it becomes a fun foraging toy. You can pull the gaps in the vine closed before giving it to your bird. Your parrot will delight in crunching up the vine to reach their treat.
The toy measures 10cm wide and 28cm tall, hanging from a nickel plated pear clip.
These pipe bells are as safe as can be for our feathered friends and make a lovely, shrill dinging sound which is sure to delight your parrot!
A large, plastic pacifier hangs on the inside of the toy from a sturdy ‘o-ring’ that also goes through the body of the bell. This attaches to the chain which is topped with another ‘o-ring’ to clip your chosen hanging link to. Truly made with strength and safety in mind. The colour of the pacifier reflects from the inside of the bell, creating a stunning effect.
The Pipe Bell is made by Australian company, My Parrot Shop. The body of the bell measures 8.5 x 8.5cm and hangs on an 14cm chain.

The Beak Buster is a great new foot toy design by Australian company, My Parrot Shop. Each side of this dice like cube has various coloured balls of wood hammered into them. They’re nicely stuck in but that won’t stop your your feathered friend having a good dig and a chew at them!
The Beak Buster is a fantastic foot toy that is sure to delight (and maybe frustrate just a little bit) any parrot. It measures 4.5cm cubed and is made from parrot safe timber, including the vegetable died balls on each face.
Much like a dumbbell, this light foot toy has 9 movable, coloured Vine Rings wrapped around the centre. It’s great to shake, rattle and roll around! The multiple paddle pop sticks that make up the centre and crunchy vine rings are good for your parrot to chew.

The Pipe Dream is a foraging toy of Kirsty’s own making. They are made in 3 different sizes to suit a range of parrots and the large is best suited to Alexandrines through to Macaws.
Your large parrot just needs to lift the clear acrylic lid out of the way and reach their beak inside the pipe to retrieve their reward. You can mix seed/pellets with bird safe foraging substrate inside the toy or use larger items like nuts, beads or chunks of vegetables wrapped in paper. When first introducing this toy, you can use a piece of sticky tape to hold one lid open for your bird to learn where to find the food. After they have used it this way for a few days, you can remove the tape and let them pick the lid up themselves.
The stainless steel chain running through the toy, helps to hold the lids a little more securely to add some difficulty. Pacifiers adorn the ends of the chain.
For Indian Ringnecks and smaller parrots, I recommend the medium toy. The Pipe dream is made with bird safe and tough acrylic (now clear, not coloured) and pvc plus all hardware is stainless steel. There are acrylic beads and cardboard birdy bagels for your bird to play with too. At the top, there is an ‘o’ ring to attach your own hanging link to.
Wow, in just 2 days of the website being open, this toy has sold out! More are expected to arrive mid-late August 2016.
This is a new foraging design, the most recently released by Caitec and it can be done by nearly every type of bird. Fill it with your bird’s favourite treats and their normal diet then watch them spin the toy to work for their food.
Your bird will need to spin the whole toy so that food falls into the shaft which has an opening for treat retrieval at the bottom. Your bird can grip and spin the toy from the opening in the shaft or along the wavy edges of the toy. The shaft is adjustable to increase the difficulty and on the hardest setting, it really takes a lot of work to get the food into the shaft. The photos show the toy in each difficulty setting which is secured by locking the shaft in place.
This toy is made from tough, clear polycarbonate and will hold up against even the tougher beaks. It measures 16-19cm long (depending on how you have the shaft adjusted), 13cm wide and will sit 8cm deep from the cage bars. The treat retrieval opening is 13 x 36mm. It attaches by screwing onto the side of the cage with the polycarbonate attachment, common among this brand of toy.
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 large quick link and uses safe, vegetable dyed timber. Each pyramid is slightly different and colours vary.
The large measures 17 x 17cm wide and 26cm tall. Small and medium are also available.
This toy is perfectly designed for feeding your bird fruits and vegetables. You could also fill with shredded paper, large pellets/nuts and parcels.
Your bird just needs to reach their beak into the slots/openings in this toy to pull out their prize! Wrapping your birds’ chunks of fruit and vegetables will prolong the enjoyment of this toy as your bird chews through the paper to get to their reward. Believe it or not, this toy can actually help to reduce mess and wastage. Every beak-full of food your bird gets out, he has to purposely chew/work for so more often than not, he’s not going to throw it all over your walls! The tray also catches small pieces of food for your bird to come back to later.
The Cage Mounted Buffet Ball can be filled whilst on the cage-mount or completely removed and even used separately. All pieces come apart for easy cleaning and changing. The ball is secured onto the pole by the spring-button at the top and the whole unit attaches to the cage with stainless steel washer and wing nut set. The ball and tray of this toy are made from tough polycarbonate with stainless steel hardware to hold up against even the tougher beaks. It measures 9cm in diameter and each of the 12 slots (6 per half) is about 4cm long and 8-12mm wide. The whole toy takes up about 19cm of horizontal space and 16cm of vertical space, including the arm and platter. The individual 3″ and 5″ foraging balls are also available in my store.
This rolley polley toy is great for feeding your bird dry food and treats. Your clever parrot will need to push and tilt or shake the toy to get to their reward.
The 'Space Circles' is a figure 8 shape and hangs from the centre of the '8'. When hanging, the toy sits so the treat is at the lower end and your bird will need to push the higher end down and also move it side to side to work the reward through the track, to the opening. You can fill it with bird safe foraging substrate to make the treats harder to get to or use a foraging foot toy like a 2cm Vine Ball or Mini Feather Weight. The Space Circles makes a delightful rattling sound as your bird shakes it, due to the beads sealed inside the protruding arms of the toy which your bird can use as a handle.
This toy is made from tough polycarbonate and will stand up to even the the rougher beaks. It hangs 23cm long on a small quick link and chain, it is 16cm across the '8' and 2.5cm thick.
This toy is perfectly designed for feeding your large bird fruits, vegetables and foraging treats. You can fill it with shredded paper, large pellets/nuts and parcels as well as pine cones, timber pieces and gumnuts.

The Party Ball is made from tough polycarbonate and will hold up against even the tougher beaks. It is 12cm in diameter and has a range of round holes (1.5cm) and oval slots (3.5 x 1.5cm) for your bird to use.

The smaller 3″ Party Ball (aka Buffet Ball) is pictured in the last photo and also available in my store.
A great foraging toy for beginners as well as an enriching way to feed your experienced parrot a portion of their breakfast. To use this foraging toy, your bird needs to push the opening down for the food to roll to the opening. As soon as they let go the spring inside the toy sends it back to it’s normal position. Your bird will need to repeat over and over to retrieve all of the food you’ve left in there. You can also put small foot toys, pebbles, shredded paper and other things in the toy to hide the food and make the toy harder.
The Foraging Seesaw measures 19cm wide and 4.5cm deep. It hangs 27cm long, including pear clip at top.
