foraging toys and musical toys
« on: April 23, 2015, 06:52:57 PM »

Truman loves his foraging toys. He has the baffle cage the bucket the buffet ball. The buffet ball he can remove from its mount, so that is hung up instead. He has the foraging wheel but can unclip this so it is just bolted on the side. I have made him a foraging toy out of the stacking cups you get for babies from poundland which he loves. He had the treasure chest but somehow managed to get one of the tiny screws out. He had a toy which he had to pull a shelf bit out and the treat fell to next level. Was too easy and I was never impressed with it and then he managed to crack it. I was thinking of the foraging carousel or the bottoms up, which is just like the cups I made for him but ten times the price nearly. Or maybe the four way forager or Mr roboto. Any feedback on those mentioned?  Oh and he has never learned anything I have said always what my dad taught him. I've moved out now and he hasn't learned anything since. I was thinking of getting the mimic me toy and recording sounds words  etc to see if he learns. What do you reckon to them? Also the pinball wizard I think he might like. Does anyone's parrot have that?  Sorry for all the question but his 5th birthday is in June and I'm planning ahead. Cheers guys

The mimic me I can get from work for just over 15 with discount so might take a chance on that. Wonder what batteries they take and how long they last. Would want to leave it on when I was at work rather than playing it when I was in with him, but the instructions seem to suggest otherwise. Hmmm

I have the mimic me
At the mo I'm not usin it as Lincoln wa moaning he was havin to listen to my silly voice all day when he was trying to sleep off nights :rofl:
Mine love the buffet balls
I even put their veg in it :)
I don't have the pinball wizard but someone I know buys em in bulk as one of her greys love em :)
If he is destructive it could be hard as most foraging toys are plastic

I do have the roboto but Iv bought it for the baby caique so it's not yet used
The four way forager mine like but I only give it the ones that aren't so destructive
The boys would kill it in a day
Maybe the grass y weave and hide things in it and hang baby links with things on it :) x

Cheers mandi, I wouldn't even say he was destructive. He just works out how to remove the toy or unclip it. He has the coconut toy as well that you can put stuff in. The foraging toy he broke was when it was just sat on the side and he was out of his cage. But I regretted buying it as soon as I realised how easy it was. But it was too late then. It gets expensive if you make too many mistakes. So thought on here would be best place to ask. Cheers again for your help

He's got the grass weave one as well. He does like that. He still likes his baby's mobile phone that's why I was thinking bout the pinball wizard.  I knew he had a lot of toys, but this is when you realise how many.

Just looked at carousel again. I agree it does look good and seems like you could put a lot in it. Might see if there are any videos on you tube of it in use. That's a front runner then. Glad I asked.

Not tried the monkey. It scares me a little. He has those coconuts that you have in your aviary. There just not connected to the rope anymore. Could re- hang them and put shredded paper in them.

Gizmo has quite a few of the plastic type foraging toys but she can work them out in seconds so they dont last long. I like the grassy weave and the foraging pouch they're brill for hiding food in. Ive just got the sliding doors but we've already lost one of the three doors she pulled it out, the mastermind toys are good where they move a cone on a track to get the treat out, but again they don't hold much food so dont last long also the cones can be easily lost giz pulls them off!
The rings of Fortune is a good one too.
Ive not tried any of the others you've suggested though x

Mine like the holee roller balls too, filled with shredded paper and treats. I like the look of the tug n slide tower and the four way forager too I might try those. The carousel looks good is it designed to be flat or on its side? I think gizmo would pull the door off that

I need to try Yvie with the rings of fortune again, she really doesn't seem interested in the foraging toys, apart from the small wooden blocks with nuts already sticking out! Lazy bugger ha ha

Hi Trumanfeatherface

Mamadou has the pinball wizard and the Saturn they claim to be bullet proof and as yet he hasn't destroyed them, as for the mimic-me it takes 2 AAA batteries I was off work for a long period last year which helped mamadou and his vocabulary but I swear by the mimic-me as well but I do have to agree with Mandi it can be very cringe worthy hearing yourself on the little machine and it sounds even worse if someone else is in the room listening to your voice you kinda want the floor to open up a swallow ya but for me I believe it's really helped mamadou it has 2 settings I can't quite remember exactly but I think one setting repeats 10 or 12 times every 15mins.
