I took a page of Coco's book (from Coco's Flock) and did some homemade toys that look a lot like some she makes for her Cape parrot Lola.
The base is in the form of a rolling pin, which I got from Things for Wings.
On the strands of poly rope, I have some pieces of cottonwood, yucca, willow and balsa, all from Things for Wings as well.
On top of the pieces of wood, I also added some wood beads, some from Les Jouets Rosie, some from California Bird Nerds.
I made 5 of them, since I had 5 rolling pin bases, and I'm quite pleased with the result.
I do have to say that playing with that poly rope isn't exactly pleasing on the hands, but it was well worth the effort.
After the full size toys, I decided to make a few foot toys, using some paper cord that I had also purchased a while ago at Things for Wings.
