It's plain undecorated wicker. Just be sure there are no metal pieces or glues.
No toxics in it! They are both currently still "working" on their baskets.
It was my friends idea, she has a sever macaw and a yellow nape amazon. They shred the baskets all the time!

Tamber loves the larger popsicle sticks! I try to make sure there are plenty of them in anything I make for him and I will also toss some in the bottom of his cage. It's fun to watch him go down to the bottom, pick one up, and then attempt to navigate back to the top of the cage without losing the stick! His second favorite are those big unfinished wood mixing spoons. They are so unevenly weighted that he goes through a lot of contortions to get it to the top of the cage and then chew on it! :D

Teyla likes those wicker balls they make for birds. Her second favorite are those flat wooden ice cream 'spoons'. She also likes to tear up paper towel tube cardboard.

Tamber's toys get chewed very quickly, sometimes lasting no more than one day. Those big wooden mixing spoons might last a week or two at best. Teyla's toys will last 1-2 months.

I've considered wood baskets also. The problem I have is that the ones I saw were either varnished or painted or had staples, nails or wire in them that I didn't think would be safe. I finally just gave up looking.

My parrotlet loves munch balls, finger traps, and anything else that is shreddable. He especially loves the shreddable toys that i hide goodies in. :)

He's also a fan of newspaper. I recently braided newspaper into a long chain and he's enjoying chewing it to bits. I called my local newspaper to make sure the black ink was soy-based and non-toxic

Sheldon loves anything wooden or made out of paper.

He also loves soft toys and things he can hold with his feet, since he spends most of his time on the bottom of his cage playing. =D

Pepper is a total bead fiend.
She loves to pick up, and carry around pony beads. She always seems to find them out in her foraging trays and loves to move them around, chew on them and bash them on her hanging toys.
She does love to play with almost anything, and especially loves foot toys; small balls, wooden blocks etc.

Scooter likes things that make noise. Bells, rattles, that sort of thing. I have one of those bells inside a rubber ball with hexagonal openings in his cage and he uses that both as transportation and to ring the bell for attention. When he's out, his favorite things are rattle balls and bottlecaps. He loves throwing them on the floor for me to pick up! I'm still trying to find things he likes to rip up aside from hand-held pieces of paper. He has no problem butting around huge toys that make noise, but he seems to be shy about ripping into big things.
