Piñata Bird Toys

Anyone that owns a bird of any size knows they all love to rip and tear up paper. There is a variety of bird toys out there that are designed with ripping and tearing in mind for our feathered friends.
I do find most of these toys to be fairly expensive only to be ripped up! However, the joy our birds show while doing the ripping seems to be worth the money spent. Even the mess is worth it!
I do most of bird shopping after holidays picking up holiday toys for over half off or more. Homemade toys are also lots of fun to make, saving money.
I found myself in a department store the day after a major holiday and came across a basket full of birthday Piñatas for 1 or 2 dollars. Rosie loves the larger tissue paper –toys! The larger Piñatas also seem to be far more durable unlike the bird piñatas and they last longer.
Give it a try your bird will love you even more for it.
