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 2.5cm rope diameter is suitable for most parrot species, though it’s best suited to medium parrots. 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 55cm long and it is attached into pvc pipe parts, with a total length of 64cm.
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.
The first photo shows the actual perch size advertised, while the additional photos show this perch compared to the smaller size as well as my own Corella, Precious on her perch of this size. Check out my store for the smaller size. Larger sizes likely to come soon.
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.

The Giant 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 242cm (when straight) and a perch diameter of 3.2cm, it is perfect for the feet of large parrots, from Galahs to Macaws. When stretched into a normal spiral size (as pictured), it sits about 1.5m tall. This toy is suitable for large parrots, this doesn't mean it's not suitable for your very spoilt small-medium parrot with an avairy or tall area to hang it in! See the photos of the boing in use in my aviary with my Quaker as well as my Corella. At the bottom of the boing is a very jingly bell and the toy hangs from a rotating hanger and quick link. It is great for play areas, aviaries and very large parrot cages with a cage space greater than 1.5m tall.
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! 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.
The Budgie Bagel Swing is just as the name suggests, a swing that is made from a birdy bagel and is the perfect size for Budgies, Finches, Canaries and Lovebirds. I hand-make this toy with a bagel that is 10.5cm in diameter, hanging from stainless steel chain. You can choose your own hanging link to suit.

This natural swing is made to suit large parrots.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 25-30cm wide, with lots of bark for your parrots' feet and nails. Lining the side is a seasonal mix of Australian Gumnuts, Casuarina, Liquid Amber and Banksia seed pods plus Pinecones and native branch pieces, vine balls/rings, birdy bagels, yucca pieces, woven leaf shredding strips and finger trap pieces, threaded onto stainless steel wire. It hangs from a length of stainless steel chain and medium 'O' ring to attach a hanging link to.This swing is suitable for Eclectus Parrots, African Greys, Galahs and Corellas, Amazon Parrots and Cockatoos. For Macaws and very large Cockatoos, I suggest the Extra-Large Swing.This swing should always be hung by a sturdy hanging link, as such the pear clip options are not available for this toy. 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.
F10 SC is a safe and pleasant smelling anti-fungal disinfectant, that is commonly used in veterinary clinics and zoos. This 200ml bottle of concentrate will make up a total of 25 litres of product, at the highest concentration recommended (1:125). I use this to clean all natural parts before use and it's great for cleaning cages and other surfaces. Also perfect for cleaning seagrass mats, perches and toys. F10 SC smells quite nice and not too strongly of chemical. It is used by avian vet clinics to prevent the spread of Psittacosis (a common respiratory form of Chlamydia), Psittacine Beak and Feather Disease Virus (PBFDV) and other contagious avian diseases. It is also an anti-fungal, killing aspergillus, candida and others.F10 SC is also commonly used for cats, dogs, rabbits, reptiles and other small animals as it prevents a lot of relevant diseases for all species. It is not currently registered to kill PBFDV, though it is commonly used for this. For a full list of diseases that is kills, please see the second image. Please note, this is a disinfectant for external use only. Useful for cleaning the environment, perches, toys, cages, bedding and utensils for your pet, but not as a treatment for any of the above diseases. The additional images are snippets from information provided by F10. To read the product details sheet from F10, please click here.

There's plenty to chew and explore with a variety of textures. Measures 35cm tall, 13cm wide and 5cm deep in total and hangs from a nickel plated chain and pear clip.
Seagrass mats have been used and recommended by avian vets and myself for over 5 years now. They are natural, versatile and safe to chew. I have only just started stocking them to sell, as I've always recommended others to purchase them from Bunnings. However, due to frequent requests, I've now got these available, already cleaned and soaked in F10 Veterinary Disinfectant so they're safe and ready to use. You can purchase a whole mat, or ones that I've cut to the correct size to be added to the platform options that I stock. Small zip ties are used to secure the ends of the mat, where it's been cut. This prevents fraying. When purchasing one of the items for covering a platform, a few small zip ties will be included for you to attach the mat to the platform. Photos show the platforms that I stock, with seagrass mat coverings. This listing is just for the seagrass mats and do not include the platforms. You can purchase the 'Sundeck' and 'Corner Shelf' platforms in my online store also.
The Sisal Cargo Net, made by Fun Max, is made with all safe sisal rope with some timber and plastic pieces for your parrot to turn and chew. They are great to hang up in your birds' play area, aviary or large cage. You can also hang toys from the rope, below the net to add to an area above a playstand or similar. It measures 75 x 75cm and comes with 4 wide jaw quick links to attach the cargo net. I have found using 3M brand stick on hooks suitable for hanging these from the wall or ceiling, with the other end attaching to another set of hooks or a birds' cage, as a bit of a verandah of sorts.
Liberty bells are a popular addition to many bird toys and are a great part to add some extra cheer to your creation. These stainless steel bells are safe for your bird and long lasting, being tougher than their nickel plated counter parts as well as resistant to rust. Make your own bird toys or refresh one that's a bit tired or has nickel plated parts. The medium bell measures 33mm tall and 32mm in diameter, while the large is 45mm tall and 48mm in diameter. A small size is not currently available. While the clapper can still be removed by those extra crafty beaks, it is at least safe if your bird does chew on it.If you're wanting something even more 'parrot proof' for your large or destructive birds that delight in deconstructing toys, why not look at the stainless steel pipe bells, which are made in a way that the clapper can't be removed. These are available in the online store and shown below. Do you need stainless steel 'O' rings or chain to complete your toy making? Check out the rest of the toy parts section for lots more safe parts.
