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 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.
The Jungle Vine Sisal Perch, by Polly's Pet Products is made with sisal rope, that is much safer for your parrot than cotton rope items. This quality product can be attached horizontally, vertically or diagonally to suit your birds' cage and play style. While this item does not have wire inside to be able to create crazy shapes, you can manipulate it and attach it to your birds' cage bars in a position that suits. The 2cm rope diameter is suitable for small parrot species. It attaches to the cage at each end with a bolt and wing nut set, with large (5cm) diameter washers in between. It will fit most cage and aviary bars. The rope section of this perch is 42cm long and it is attached into pvc pipe parts, with a total length of 50cm. While sisal rope is significantly safer than cotton and synthetic fibres, it is still important to monitor your bird with any new toy to ensure they are using it correctly and not chewing it excessively. Sisal rope that is accidentally consumed in small amounts (through normal chewing and preening) will break down and digest, however if large amounts are consumed in a short time, it still has the potential to cause a blockage.Due to the packaging rubbing during shipping from America, I will normally remove the product tags, which are zip tied onto the perch and can be hard to remove without risking cutting the perch if just using household scissors. Additional photos show this perch compared to the larger size. Check out my store for the larger size. The manufacturer doesn't currently make this smaller rope diameter in a longer perch, I have requested this and will see what the bring us in the future.

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.
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.
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!

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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
