In Aliens, Ellen Ripley finds herself caring for an orphaned girl, Newt. Since this toy is full of my Ripley's favorite things, Newt seemed the most appropriate name!
With a 2" balsa cube at it's core, this toy features cork bark chunks, cardboard squares, cupcake liners, 1/4" pine slices, and 10mm wood beads. Strung with paper rope.
For smaller birds or medium birds depending on their play style!
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 birds. 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. 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.
