Lucy loves the paper shredder toys ... without a doubt those are her favorite toys. Only thing that drives me crazy is you spend $15 on one and she has it gone within 24 - 48 hours. Good thing is we went to the 'All About Pets Show' in Toronto yesterday and picked a couple up for $8 each. We got 10 toys/perches for a little over $80 at the show yesterday. He also loves anything with pieces of wood on it ... she's definitely a chewer.

Jessie loves his acrylic toys with dice and bells hanging. He loves to hang upside down and swing back and forth right beside them ... you can tell he's happy as can be, but man does it ever make a lot of noise :) Doesn't bother me, but my step-kids says it drives them crazy when they are trying to sleep in. Jessie also loves those balls that has the leather straps, ropes and pieces of wood wrapped in paper. Again, those are usually destroyed within a couple of days.

I think Michael showed a picture of Kili with a toy made out of pasta. I'll have to try that, because I just started giving Lucy and Jessie raw and cooked pasta and they love it. So I'll have to make a toy out of it and I'm sure Lucy will love chewing on the raw pasta.

I like the Snack Rack Bird Toy, a Puzzle Wheel, cardboard shredder boxes, and an acrylic “treasure chest” with two keys that need to be turned and pulled to reveal the treat.MY parrots enjoy with toys.

parrotsaver:

hey if you dont have a lot of money to spend u can buy the little cat balls that have the bell in them and you can attach it to the top of the cage with a twisty tie that way the budgie can knock it around and have fun with it as i fond my budgie doesnt play with the ones on the bottom of his cage, you can also use the plasic key ring type object you have put it around his perch thats another way to relive bordem and also simple baby toys liek the plastic keys they love toys like that and you should be able to pick these items up at any dollar store

Jasper hasn't really played with anything much in his cage. I think his favorite toy at the moment is my computer desk. He doesn't bite it or anything but he loves just running around on it. I seriously have to get on with finding him some more toys to play with once he gets better acclimated with his cage. .I've heard you can use cut up paper towel rolls as shreddable toys. Is this safe?

My sun conure's favorite toys are anything he can destroy! but the little cat balls with the bells in them come in a close second. He'll take the ball and roll onto his back while trying to take the bell out of the ball :p

My senegal's favorite toys are BELLS, she attacks them violently, then holds them like a cup, sticks her head inside and picks at it until the little bar inside comes off. The best was the macaw sized bell I gave her. She LOVED it and loved the challenge of bending the much stronger metal, it took her 4 months to get the middle out of it :p

Out of the budgies, Finn likes reflective surfaces and hanging greens best; George and Ralph both love hanging greens and bells.
