i went shopping about a week ago and got some whiffle balls on clearance from target. and today i got out all my old toy parts and my new toymaking parts from old purchases. i have a rubbermaid container with old parts (sanitized) and one with new parts that i've bought over the last year or so. so, anyway, i made a new toy. for either marley or skittles.  dont have enough finger traps to make another one, so i'm gonna just see what else i have the parts for. i'm waiting impatiently for  ca bird nerds to get off vacation. i have all these great ideas and not enough parts....

believe it or not it's still in one piece. slightly chewed but overall, pretty good. it'll probably last a couple days til all the finger traps are off, then it will become a punching bag.  lol

oh boy!   clap ca bird nerds are open again. i ordered a bunch of parts. i went through and made a basic plan of what i wanted to make, then ordered the parts. i have my parts list and my toy plan. i also went to amazon and ordered a book on bird training using positive reinforcement. <sigh> now my birdie fund is shot. gotta start saving again. as a matter of fact, i used some money i had put away and i have to replace it when i get my paycheck.  dmblaf so even my birdie budget from friday is spent...and friday isnt even here.   slaph
but we're gonna have some new toys. if i figured it right, including the parts i already have, i should be able to make about 8 to 12 toys...it depends on how much i screw up.  dmblaf  in different sizes, of course. and i ordered a couple of their foot toys.  but i ordered parts to make some of my own foot toys, too. yeah, i'm rambling. i'm excited.  handshappy
