Look at the neon poney beads. they are a great price here. I can get a package of 750 for about $6-7 here.

Hanging the rope from the roof is a simple but a great idea! Well done on using the doggy toy rope.We might try something like that!!:D

Yet another toy i've made, LOL!! The tiels destroyed their ladder with the till roll, so i remade it with just one rung to hold the till roll, and used the beads to finish this one i had started.

Very creative bea. I bet they will love it.
This one will go to the budgies, anything with paddle pop sticks gets destroyed in seconds if i put it in the tiel cage. :rolleyes: I like to see my work whole and beautiful for at *least* a few days.

Yes try wal-mart craft section. They also have these which i find great.



They add color to anything. They also have those little button parts that was on bea's perchs there. 1 pound for about $11 which is a lot of pieces lol.

These are the button parts i found as wal mart.


I've yet to buy any because i don't know what to use them for lol

WOW! Everyone is so creative around here. I love the "toilet roll" toy idea, and the idea of putting till rolls on bird toys is great. :)

Some "Shredders" i ordered from My Parrot Shop arrived today so i made:


And as i was on a roll i kept on making. First is a little dice toy.


And this is just too adorable if you ask me! I pulled apart a cheap olympic ring toy and added pony beads before putting it together again. I was going to glue it, but i found it to be unnecessary!




And in other exciting news mum cleaned out a draw in my/her desk and i've used it for toy making supplies!

Well i reuse bells, quick links, o-rings, large beads, etc - so those bits cost me nothing! ;) I've spent about $50 lately on bits and pieces, but when you think about what all these toys would've cost to buy... ;)
