A foraging toy that is out of this world!
A large wiffle ball is suspended in mid-air by our every safe and durable stainless steel chain and is stuffed with a variety of materials - vegetable tanned leather, shredded paper, abaca fibres, raffia coconut fibres. The fibres are short in length so it won't be a quick process for your parrot to pull it all out and if you throw in a few pellets or seed into the fibre mix, there'll be some satisfying surprises on the way!
Using our super strong large stainless steel o-rings to cap each end of the chain makes this forage toy suitable for any sized parrot (with one proviso - see below). And once all the fibre has been pulled out of this parrot toy you can simply throw it in the dishwasher to clean.
You can refill this foraging toy with whatever you desire (you'll be surprised at what will fit through the holes, especially if you have some needle-nose pliers handy) but we have a variety of stuffing materials available in our toy parts section if you want to fill it up with fibre again.
The wiffle balls we use are made from a thick, pliable kind of plastic. We've specifically chosen these over the hard wiffle balls usually available so that a large bird is in no danger of shattering it with a big bite (and perhaps getting hurt in the process). If any pieces are chewed off they are less likely to cut or get stuck externally (or internally should the piece be swallowed). HOWEVER - this makes the toy vulnerable to quick destruction should your parrot be so inclined. Some birds will enjoy the fun wiffle design for years whilst other birds will proceed straight to cutting a wiffle ball up into pieces within minutes. If you feel your bird's play directive usually follows the seek-and-destroy method before all else, you may wish to skip the wiffle ball toys.
