  • Mama Bear comes in your choice of pine or balsa (since we all know moms can be softies or tough, as needed!)

    Measuring about 5" x 4" and 3/4" thick, Mama has a sola rose, hardwood heart, shred paper, and embedded 8mm and 6mm beads. Pine comes with stainless steel hardware; balsa comes with paper rope tie or upgrade to stainless steel. 

    Exact colors may vary. 

  • Safety Information
  • 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. 

    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.

    By default, I do not include quicklinks as people have their own preferences.

  • Dyes
  • 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.
