Yeah, when you have been born with a nutcracker and shredder on the end of your face shredding things seems to be almost second nature. Birds don't actually play with toys in their natural surroundings, but they do use things to practice their foraging abilities with as well as to learn self defense. Playing with toys is really a learned human activity so it is always best to take the time to play with the toy in front of them so that they can learn to play with them on their own.
