  • Your Lil' Monster can reclaim some of their ancestral heritage with this toy!

    This toy is intended to be mounted to the side of a cage, and will come with a 1/4" x 1.5" machine bolt, two 1.5" washers, and a wingnut to keep it safely in place. All stainless steel! 


    Embedded into a piece of 3/4" unfinished pine are beads of 4mm and 6mm sizes, and then your choice of 8mm wood beads, 3/8" wood balls, millet, or I can leave the holes empty for you to fill yourself! (Please note: only the larger holes will be left empty unless you message me to let me know otherwise)


    Note: 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 3/8" balls as they have no hole. This makes them also a harder wood to snap than the beads. 


    This toy is GREAT for small birds like budgies, cockatiels, conures, quakers, and more! And they can either safely chew the pine to smithereens with all its tantalizing nooks and crannies, or you can keep refilling the wells with beads or more treats! 


    I do not add anything, especially food, until I am prepping your order for shipping. This makes sure that the food stays fresh for your birds!

    Please note that because this is a handmade product, made from natural materials, variations are to be expected. 

    Size is approx 6" x 4".


    Can also be ordered without the hardware and/or holes to either use your own or to give as a floor toy

  • 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.

    Stainless Steel Hardware

    • 1/4-20 Hanger or Machine Bolt
    • 1/4-20 Wingnut
    • 1.5" Fender Washer

     

  • 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.
