Your African Grey or Amazon needs medium bird toys that feature big enough parts that are fun to chew but choke resistant. If the bird toy parts are too small, like pony beads or small bells, it can be a safety hazard for medium sized birds. However, if the toy parts are too big, like chunky, dense wood parts, the toy is not nearly as fulfilling and usable for the bird. Our medium bird toys feature parts that are both safe and usable for medium sized birds such as African Grey Parrots, Amazon Parrots, Goffin medium Macaw's, Cockatoo's Pionus and similar sized birds.
Bird Toys Should Feature a Variety of Textures
Toys for African Grey's and Amazon Parrots should feature several textures including softer wood parts like pine and promote foraging. We've found that our medium sized birds love wood slices where they can chip at the pine versus chewing off large chunks from blocks, in the manner that larger parrots play.
Choose Parrot-Tested Bird Toys
Some of our favorite medium bird toy brands are Fun Max Bird Toys, Super Bird Creations Bird Toys, Nature's Instinct Bird Toys, and Planet Pleasures Bird Toys. These manufacturers make bird toys with safety and fun in mind. Note the African Grey Parrot above with a Fun Max Leather based bird toy. The plastic and wood parts are a similar size as the birds beak tied together with bird safe veggie leather. Imagine how much fun this bird is having undoing all those knots!
