Thanks to all the great people on this forum with great ideas, my daughter had so much fun making some toys for our budgies...we just had to give them an early Christmas! She's very clever don't you think?

Thanks,

Yes she had so much fun! She still has one more budgie to make something for, but I think she's hooked and will make many more toys! I think the budgies will need their own toybox soon! :28:

Great work. They are going to love them. As with any toys... make sure you regularly check them for wear and tear. With home made toys (especially with shredable bits), you're best to remove when any signs are seen. The best thing is though, you just dismantle them, and reuse what you can. One thing my Budgies love, are those patty cake/muffin paper cups... I buy the white, undied paper ones and thread them onto toys... they don't last long, but they LOVE to rip them up :hap:

 

On a side note: I have a plastic toy box for all my bird toys!!! :party0011:

I'm not sure if I mentioned before, but I buy some stuff from MY PARROT SHOP. They are excellent. You can buy whole toys, but I prefer to go to the Toy parts and hardware section, and buy bits and bobs to make my own... It's also great just to see what they use... and then try to find them cheaper around home... The site is very trustworthy and quick to send them out.

Great Toys :laughter: ..

Another place to purchase toys and toy making supplies from is the PRC (Parrot Rescue Center) http://www.parrotrescuecentre.com/

I buy all of my parrot toys and supplies here.. I like the thought of helping the rescued parrots..

Slightly off topic but still in the toy department, I made my Eclectus hen Ruby and my Sulphur Crested Cockatoo Frankie some homemade "foraging" toys for Christmas..

I got carried away and was going to use some of the smaller twig balls for the budgies and stuff them with yummy treats to hang up ... I managed to forget and use them all :laughter: also couldnt wait for Christmas before i gave them to them hahahaaa :(
