  • Who doesn't like cheesecake?  Made up of a slice of yucca, and adorned with wood beads. Strung on paper rope. Measures about 2" x 2", but size is approximate.  I try to select the whitest yucca possible but due to the natural nature of it, sometimes it may have some brown spots. These are totally natural and totally safe.  ================================================================================= All of my items are handmade by me in my home unless otherwise stated. My office is on a separate floor of my house that is completely free of pets. Nothing I sell has been in contact with any of my personal companion animals. Items are dyed with Vitacritter, a bird and small animal safe dye, except for light blue, brown, and black items that are dyed with Wilton's or Americolor gel food coloring. I do not use anything that is painted, has varnish, or is chemically treated. Any metals are all nickel plated or stainless steel and I will always specify which is being used. Since I have lost my own bird to a devastating toy accident, I try to be very diligent in all aspects of toy making, from the materials used to the way they are used. That being said, every bird plays different, and it is ultimately your responsibility to ensure that the things you give to your bird are safe. If you have any questions about any aspect of my toys, please send me a message. I am always happy to customize toys! Most can be strung on different materials, dyed or undyed, etc. Not all of my available items are listed on Etsy. For my complete catalog, please visit www.lilmonstersbirdtoys.com

    For Dinosaur and embedded bead shapes:

    Some birds with long, thin beaks may get their beak inside the 7/64" (~2.78mm) hole on the 8mm beads. For these birds we recommend the 9.5mm" balls as they have no hole. This makes them also a harder wood to snap than the beads.

  • Toy parts are dyed with Vitacritter, a dye specifically made for small animals and birds. The exceptions to this are black, brown, light blue. These colors are made with Americolor food gels. 

    I mix colorants with 70% isopropyl alcohol. This is because it helps the color set quickly, reducing how wet the materials get, and thereby decreasing drying time. This limits the chances for mold. 

    Isopropyl alochol also disinfects, just in case there is anything on the wood, and evaporates completely when dry. 

    Since these are water based dyes, it is totally normal for these to sometimes run when they are sprayed or splashed with water.
