Parrot toys are very expensive, yet vitally important to the health and happiness of our beloved friends. Parrots are exceptionally intelligent and require a lot of mental stimulation to thrive. They need much more than a good diet, fresh water, clean surroundings, fresh air, and warm sunshine. They need and enjoy the closeness and interaction of their human companions, as well. And just like a human child, they also benefit greatly, and in fact NEED, safe, stimulating toys that engage their minds and allow developmental growth, such as problem solving skills and "hand-eye" coordination. Parrot toys can break your bank, yet as you can see, are absolutely necessary. These very pricey toys are usually "lovingly destroyed" much faster than we mere mortals can afford to replace them. I have discovered a wonderful alternative in the form of infant and toddler toys!
Thank you for sharing your ideas and explaining about Parrots. These birds are extremely smart , and do require much attention , love , mental stimulation like you mentioned. I am planning on getting a rescue bird , either a Moluccan Cockatoo or an Umbrella Cockatoo. I'm preparing a head of time by researching and watching on line videos of their behaviors. I enjoy this so much. I admit , with their long life span , this will be a new life long member of the family , and nothing like a dog or cat.
