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.
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.
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.
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.

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.

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). The straight edges of the powder coated shelf are 30cm, the ledge is 4cm tall and from the inner corner to the outer most edge (on the curve of the shelf) is 28cm. 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.
The new Cane Basket Forager is a toy handmade by me! An easy toy to introduce to your small parrot who is beginning to forage. Partially fill the basket with some bird-safe foraging substrate and sprinkle some pellets, millet or other treat on top then watch your bird swinging in the basket while retrieving their goodies. You can also put foraging surprises in the large 8cm vine ball at the top. The toy measures 20cm wide and 25cm tall. It is fantastic for Budgies through to Indian Ringnecks. It hangs from 3mm plastic chain and stainless steel wire. A loop is made in the wire, for you to attach your chosen hanging link from. All plastic 'C' links on the toy are closed off with a straw bead for safety. This toy isn't suitable for large parrots or those who particularly like to chew through plastic.
A simple foraging toy for parrots, released from 'Sweet Feet & Beak' in a transparent design. Your bird will see the food inside the 3 separate compartments inside and needs to lift the lid to access the goodies. Available in 2 sizes to suit a wide variety of breeds. I suggest the small for Cockatiels to Indian Ringnecks and the large for Alexandrines to Macaws. It comes in 3 transparent colours: purple, green and blue. A colour will be chosen at random, though you are welcome to request your colour preferences in order notes. I will do my best to accommodate requests.
A selection of 5 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'.
