$13.00 – $15.50
A 30cm long, natural chew, full of lots of different natural seed pods and textures for your small to medium parrot to chew and explore.
One of the original and most popular “Kirsty’s Natural Bird Toys”, this toy is handmade with Australian Gumnuts, Casuarina, Banksia and Liquid Amber pods plus native branch pieces and a pinecone, 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 example pictures.
Suits most breeds of birds or mixed cages as it is a good, in between size.
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.

Tea Party Forager0 out of 5$16.50
This is a super cute little toy that combines shredding fun and foraging! Sprinkle some seed or pellets in the natural, woven basket as well as treats/foot toys/beads in the 2 smiley mugs, hanging below the basket. The mugs hold a 2cm Vine Ball or Mini Feather Weight perfectly as a foraging foot toy for your bird to find (see the videos)!
The 4cm birdy bagel tube between the basket and the rubber duck is stuffed with colourful, crinkle paper and is another great place to hide a foraging parcel for your bird. There is a bell, c links and mini pacifiers at the bottom for your bird to play with as well!
Measures 23cm long and 13cm in diameter and the cups come in various colours as shown.
Bottom’s Up5.00 out of 5$32.00
This is a very popular foraging toy that is great for the smaller breeds of birds. It is easy to teach your bird to use and can also be made more difficult. Fill it with your bird’s favourite treats, and their normal diet, mixed with bird safe foraging substrate. You can use Mini Feather Weight Foot toys, vine balls and other items in this toy as well as treats. The photos show the toy with these items in use. It comes brand new and empty.
Your bird will need to lift the light, plastic lid and reach their head into the cup to access their reward. The cups and lids move around freely on a long length of nickel plated chain. While your bird is learning to use the toy, you can sticky tape the lids open or partially open to make it easier for them. Then change to no tape, with the lids sitting loosely once your parrot knows that they can get the food with the lid lifted. You can even start sticky taping the lids closed once your parrot is really good at this toy! They will need to chew through the tape to open the lid! (avian vet recommended/safe).
Measures 43cm long (including pear clip and bell) and 6.5cm wide.
Buffet Ball (3″)4.00 out of 5$13.50
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!
This toy is made from tough polycarbonate and will hold up against even the tougher beaks. This is a loose, individual toy. It can be hung from a skewer (various options shown below), hung by a large hanging loop or used as a foot toy for a very large parrot or placed in a foraging bowl.
The Buffet Ball is 9cm in diameter and each of the 12 slots (6 per half) is about 4cm long and 8-12mm wide. This is a versatile toy that suits most parrots.
Also known as the 3″ Party Ball. The 5″ Party Ball is shown in the last image and also available in my store.
Small Pipe Dream5.00 out of 5$15.50
The Pipe Dream is a foraging toy of Kirsty’s own design. They are made in 3 different sizes to suit a range of parrots and the small is best suited to Budgies and Lovebirds.
Your small parrot just needs to push the plastic lid to the side and reach their beak inside the pipe to retrieve their reward, normally some millet or pellets mixed with some bird safe foraging substrate. 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.
For Cockatiels and other small parrots, I recommend the medium toy. The Pipe dream is made with bird safe plastic and pvc and all hardware is stainless steel. There is an ‘o’ ring at the top to attach your own hanging link to.
Super Bird Bell Ball0 out of 5
Small Baffle Cage5.00 out of 5$38.00
This is a high quality, sturdy foraging design that is great for all breeds of birds. Fill it with your bird’s fruits and vegetables as well as foot toys, blocks of wood, pinecones and banksia pods.
Your bird will need to reach through the gaps in the bars to access their rewards. You could make this harder by wrapping everything inside the toy with paper for them to chew open or lining the baffle cage with cardboard once your parrot has mastered it.
This toy is 100% stainless steel and measures 10 x 10cm across, while hanging just over 20cm tall from a chain with quick link attachment. It has a 1.8cm space between each of the bars.
Sisal Boing 130cm Small (PT364)5.00 out of 5$27.00
The Small Sisal Boing by Paradise Toys is bouncy, jingly and great fun for your parrot to climb and swing from. The sisal rope is twisted around sturdy wire which makes this spiral easy to shape to a size that suits your cage or play area. With a total length of 130cm (when straight) and a perch diameter of 1.25cm, it is perfect for the feet of small parrots from Budgies through to Indian Ringnecks.
At the bottom of the boing is a very jingly bell and the toy hangs from a rotating hanger and small quick link.
It is great for play areas, aviaries and most cages. I use this in Avione’s popular 604 cage and it hangs nearly to the bottom at a normal spiral width, it can be changed to have a wide spiral width and be shorter for smaller cages.
Feather Weight Foot Toy (Various Sizes)5.00 out of 5$0.50 – $2.00
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. The rings can also placed over perches to spin or strung on the chain/rope of many other toys. 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 or bobble is about 2cm in diameter and the different sizes are connected as per the images. The ring measures 9cm in total diameter.
They are available in blue, green, yellow, orange, pink and red as pictured and random colours will be chosen for you unless otherwise requested.
Yucca Delight0 out of 5$15.50
This is a great, chewable toy that will help to keep your parrot amused. With lots of soft, chewy yucca along with some coloured wood blocks, threaded onto sisal rope, what’s not to love! Yucca is a type of plant and the long cream tubes pictured here are lengths of the yucca plants’ root. The inside of the root is very soft and fun to chew. You can also stuff seeds and treats into the yucca for your bird to forage out! (as pictured in the last photo).
Natives in the area Yucca grows, cook and eat the yucca root. Yucca is found in other toys in my store and in pieces as a foot toy or toy part. It is natural and safe! This toy measures 35cm long and 15.5cm wide and hangs from a nickel plated pear clip.
Small Acrylic Maze0 out of 5$31.00
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.
