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 4cm in diameter, but do vary as they are natural products. Other vine ball sizes as well as coloured vine balls are also available in my store.
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.
Straw Beads are small plastic tubes that can be used in toy making. They come in red, blue, green, orange and yellow. Use Straw Beads to safely close the opening in 'C' links (as pictured). This is important to keep your bird safe from getting their beak or other parts caught in the opening. C links not included and can be purchased separately.

Finger traps are crinkly little toy parts that can be used as foot toys, stuffed with shredded paper or food and threaded over perches. So much fun to be had! They're safe to chew and a favourite of many small parrots. Finger Traps come in 4 different colours as pictured. They can be purchased individually and a random colour will be selected for you. Where 4 or more are purchased, an even mix of colours will be selected.
Pinecones are great for your bird to chew. You can also hide treats inside them. These Pinecones have been briefly soaked in a solution of F10 veterinary disinfectant and lightly scrubbed to remove any debris, before being dried in the sun. You can also select to have holes drilled in them to thread them onto wire or a skewer yourself. These will be roughly 4.5mm holes that will suit most small skewers. Large skewers and ropes are generally unsuitable for Pinecones as I'm not able to drill larger holes in them without breaking the core. They are packed into a box with shredded paper, or into paper bags within the box for posting.
A selection of 5 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. You will receive a pack of 5 pieces, as pictured - 2 discs, 2 quarter pieces and a half piece. The half is from a larger disc so is a decent size and all slices are roughly 2cm thick. These can all be cut to smaller pieces easily with a stanley blade so can make more than 5 pieces. As a natural item, the pieces do vary and can have 'imperfections' and areas of different colours. These yucca slices have come from the 'Bird Kabob' 20 pack (shown below), which I have opened and divided into even packs of 5 pieces each for those wanting to try a smaller amount.The last photo is an example of how food can be stuck in the yucca.Yucca, also known as 'yukka'.
