Subject: Dangers found in toys and Oops, wrong Donna?
I received your informative lesson about the dear little budgie? (Sorry, tiny strokes-no memory)
I couldn’t stop reading. So happy I found you!
I started to dismantle my sweet little 21-year-old Meyer’s parrot’s toys to DIY new ones.
I stuck my finger on something very very sharp!
It was a little zip tie that was wrapped around a “bunch” of colored paper ribbons you see on so many toys.
The end of it had been cut, forming a very hard, very sharp pointed angle.
I also found a twisted metal wire, with uneven ends so one stuck out further than the other, making another sword.

and accessories daily for safety ~ Video
I was horrified and ripped apart all the toys she had (except Planet Pleasures and Bonka toys which are always great, utilizing absolutely safe parts.)
I had no idea the other toys were bombs waiting to go off.
Fortunately, she only had 2 or 3, but that’s 3 too many.
She and I were lucky.
I have pictures of them and will send them to you and Amazon where I bought them.
Again so happy to find you!
You’re preaching to the choir, Donna 🙂
Watch the video for a prime example of the point you are making.
We love pictures.
They are cute little balls of feathers, who, at-the-end-of-the-day are miniature velociraptors with evolutionary expectations spanning a hundred million years
This is an issue we can’t talk about enough – thank you
