For the longest time, I've held out of ordering toys from online bird stores located in the US because I was always weary of shipping and the possible duty/brokerage fees.
However, after seeing how many people were pleased with toys they were getting at Grey Feather Toys and how amazing the toys looked, I finally decided to take the plunge earlier this month.
The toys got here last Monday.
Yesterday, I put the toys on the sofa so that multiple birds could try them out at once and I have to say, based on what I've seen so far, the toys are a success. Here are a few pictures.
Joey very decisively going towards the toys.
Zuri with the Spoonover.
I have two of the Spoonover and they will be going to Shade and Joey. I might order more later on and get one for Petey and Zuri as well.

Same toy..look at the tongue action!
Undecided...Little dipper or Dazzle?
With my order came a freebie. Looked quickly on the website and I can't find it so I don't know it's name..but it's definitively a favorite!

Once Joey was done with it and moved onto other things, guess who came to investigate? Piper!..who was terrified of everything on Monday night.

The freebie also won over Shade, who was more terrified of everything than Piper Monday night. She eventually played with it. She wouldn't come near it if I offered it, but after it was put in a bowl on the tree for long enough she decided it was no longer threatening. It took her about two minutes that way to go down, get it and bring it back up with her.
Not so scared after all
Really enjoying the new toy
The freebie actually lead to Shade approaching one of the Bonbons Talon (which is also featured in the "Rough'n Tumble" post).
Head first into it!

Really trying hard to get at those ridges
Finally, one last picture, this one to showcase the Little dipper.

All and all, this was a real positive experience and I'll surely continue to order from them in the future.
