Default Post Pictures of DIY Toys you have made!

We thought it would be great to see other peoples pictures of DIY toys that they have made! There have been many fantastic ideas and pictures for toys posted around this forum- so add your DIY toys to here and then we will have a great collection of ideas!
Here a a few pictures of the toys the kids and I have made. We got the idea of the Baby Disco from The Parrot Shop and from Bea's post and then added the paper sticks as we didnt have anything else! The Paper Stick Crazy Ball was my childrens idea and it is the favourite one for Banjo! He really enjoys it and he likes sitting on his little balcony of his penthouse to have a play and a nibble! We just pushed the little paper sticks through two holes and it is a tight fit so they stay tightly in the ball and dont fall out and we attached the toy to the balcony with lether thonging as
The last one looks like a tiolet roll made with the till rolls from The Parrot Shop, it is not really set up well but the kids were impatient to give Banjo everything! He has not been near it yet so we will rwethink the idea!?

Default Made some more!

We also just finished making this perch! It has another Crazy Stick Ball (as he loved the first one !) and some beads on it attached with leather thonging. We left the bark on it and he loves chewing the bark off!

Banjo is being spoilt for sure!
Looks like we need to get some more toy parts as we have nearly run out!

The perch looks great!! And my tiels say a big thank you for the crazy stick ball idea, it's so simple and so great! Here's some pics of my toys all in the one place. This thread is a good idea.






(simple, but definitely a fav with the birds)















I've got some more in the making right now, they're just waiting on some more beads.

Your perch is really excellent! Where did you get those big flat beads from? I also Like the way you put your beads on too!

The big flat ones are just buttons that have come off old bird toys. You could probably find something similar at a craft shop.

They are great. I've made this cute swing for the budgies but the tiels have taken it over.

Well how about this. My New toy parts are comming on tusday and i will be getting stuff to make more swings so i will post picures along with how to make them. Might make it easier to explain.



This one is pretty basic. I bought a dog toy at a pet store and untied all the knots and hung it to the roof. Anyone can do this. I can also turn this into a boing if i were to add wire to it and maybe i will but not now all the birdies love it the way it is.
