Title: You have to check out this new toy!
Post by: zimbasmom on July 29, 2009, 10:21:57 am
Zimba got this toy in the mail yesterday and it is a huge hit! I think I posted the link before but will again this toy...wish I would have thought of it because what bird does not like shoe laces, right? It has a bunch extra of the little plastic pieces that they like. Well any way Patricia Sund is on facebook she is a writer for Bird Talk and a toy designer. She posted about this toy the other day and was going on & on about how much her birds loved it, so I got one and have now ordered 5 more.
Oh course at first you know the Grey drama with a new toy but it did not take Zim long to check it out. This morning I could hear him playing with it before I uncovered his cage. I bet this would be a great toy for pluckers.

Wow, that's a great idea!  Is it a plastic ring that the shoelaces are tied to?

that's true, zimbz!  I think I'll do that too. I got it! that is cut up aquarium tubing, i'm sure I have some around the house.  All I have to do is collect colorful shoe laces. kamrt, walmart .
Meanwhile, I'm glad I got 2, seems we might have territorial  issue rolleyes.gif
