When it comes to choosing the right foot and audio toys for your feathered friend, there are several important factors that you should consider.
Here’s a list of tips to help you pick the perfect toys for your parrot:

  • Ensure that the toys are made from bird-safe materials and designs.
  • Consider your parrot’s size when selecting appropriate toys, including foot toys. The design, size, texture, material, and weight of the toy should all be taken into account.
  • Be mindful of your parrot’s species and size to avoid them swallowing or breaking off small toy parts.
  • Avoid cowbell-style bells and jingle bells, as well as any bell made of toxic metals for birds.
  • Avoid small bells with larger birds as they can trap a toe or beak in the slit. Instead, use stainless steel bird-safe bells.
  • Choose age and skill-appropriate toys, particularly for younger birds. Start with lighter weight toys.
  • Consider using small disposable foot toys that can be used for hiding non-perishable food, offering a foraging opportunity.
  • Get creative and recycle materials from salvageable toys to make new ones.
  • Select designs and materials that can stimulate preening activities, like pacifiers or toothbrushes.

For the Health and Well Being of Your Bird

Creating the Ideal Environment for Parrot Playtime

Playing with foot toys can be challenging for inexperienced or young parrots due to their lack of balance, stability, and dexterity. A flat, stable surface is necessary for successful foot toy play. Consider designating a safe play area on the floor or a stable tabletop with a raised edge to keep the toys from rolling away. A box filled with foot toys can also be placed in the bird’s cage during the day, but away from the perches, food, and water dishes to avoid contamination from droppings.

If you’re traveling with your parrot, foot toys can be a great accessory in the carrier. Upon arrival, the toys can be removed and used on a safe, non-slippery surface.

Mixing Up the Activities

Small preening devices, such as bristled balls or toothbrushes, can be a great addition to your bird’s foot toy collection. They’re easy, inexpensive, and promote preening while also requiring balance and dexterity. Be sure to replace or wash the toys regularly, and avoid brushes with thin bristles that could entangle your bird’s leg or foot. Aside from foot toys, providing your parrot with a variety of toys can help keep them mentally and physically stimulated. Toys that encourage chewing, foraging, and climbing can be great additions to your bird’s play area. Bird-safe household items such as cardboard boxes, paper bags, and straws can also be used as toys.

Creating Social Opportunities

Parrots are social animals and thrive on interaction with their owners. Playing games such as peek-a-boo or hide-and-seek can help strengthen the bond between you and your bird. You can also consider introducing your parrot to other parrots for socialization, but be sure to supervise their interactions to prevent aggression or injury.

Vigilance is Key

Regularly engaging in activities with your parrot and observing their behavior can help you identify signs of discomfort or distress. Changes in your bird’s playing habits or skills may indicate health concerns. For instance, if your bird once enjoyed playing with foot toys but now lacks the strength, confidence, balance, or interest to do so, it could mean they’re experiencing health issues.

When choosing toys for your parrot, it’s important to ensure their safety. Avoid toys with small or detachable parts that can be swallowed or choked on. Toys made from toxic materials such as lead, zinc, or galvanized metal should also be avoided. Always supervise your parrot during playtime to prevent accidents.
