well not exactly toys,but jasper likes nothing more than to sit with an old envelope (i tear off the sticky bit) and shred it to pieces Smile

i've bought him one of those algave? wooden chewy toys for his birthday so i'm hoping he'll take to that to give him a change Smile

Elvis LOVES LOVES LOVES envelopes! He'll sit and wait for me to open mail, then I'll hand him take away menus, envelopes and other things while asking him to "file this for me, sweetie!" he'll shove bits inside other bits, then rip them all to tiny shreds lol

Blacksheep.
Rubert lives in a box at the bottom of his cage, I use a beer box (great excuse for buying beer) but any box will do.

he hides in there and takes food in there and then a couple of days later and it's more beer. ooops sorry, sorry I meant a new box as he has wecked the other one

I wrap cereal and toys in newspaper sometimes too, gives him something to do lol. Sometimes I lay out a sheet of news paper, then scatter seeds and nuts all over it, roll it up carefully then twist over and over until its very tight, then give it to him, so every layer he gets off there is nummy things as a reward. He tends to untwist, shake and eat LOL

Have you tried weaving strips of paper through the cage bars?



there was more - but he's already shredded them and tossed them on the floor LMAO Takes about 10 minutes of work, he's helped me weave them (well read as ate most of them LOL) so it can take longer depending on the amount of 'help' received, they'll stay up for about three days, and you get the extra fun of hoovering tiny paper shreds every day, but I already have to hoover a metric ton of parrot food so life goes on Wink
