Hmmm...barrel of monkeys is always good. Pretty much any baby toy--just check it to be sure it is suggie safe-no places where feets can get caught or stuck, no small parts they can swallow, etc... My guys love their ribbon toys. I regularly have to unwind ribbon from everything in the cage.

Feathers.

Try tying a feather to a stick and dragging it around. All gliders love them.

Trout is quite amused by a cat toy that is basically a little ball made of a sort of fluffy stuff that has sparkly longer strands sticking out all over the place... sorry i can't explain that better!

I know exactly what toy you are talking about and my gliders love those things. Feathers are definately a favorite. I just picked up this toy the other day..can't remember what it was for but it's a bunch of lil chew blocks arranged to make a ball and they are held together with other lil poles from the same material.. I just had to put it back together cuz they took it apart. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/yelclap.gif" alt="" /> smart lil buggars.

Thank you. I just bought Kiki these cat balls with little bells inside them. He is not really interested. Are those good for him?

I put the balls in his cage, and you could hear the bells going off. He's really having a fun time.

haha sometimes it takes them a bit to get around to new toys. With cat toys make sure to not get anything with cat nip in it. I have one of the cat toys that's all plastic ball with a lil ball in it and they play with that thing all the time.

[:"green"] Just a word of caution about this toy (if it's what I'm thinking of)...
A while back there was a post about how a glider broke their hard plastic ball open & then ingested the "little ball" that was inside it - the "little ball" turned out to be a ball bearing & the glider's bowels became obstructed from it. So...
Make sure that you regularly inspect the hard plastic ball to make sure that it is not getting damaged in any way that would allow your glider to get it broken open.

(I'm not trying to scare you, just trying to avoid another tragedy.)

[:"green"]Okay, I just did a search for the post I referred to. It turns out that the glider didn't end up with an obstructed bowel, thankfully the owner found the ball bearings in time. You can read the original thread HERE . There are pictures you can refer to in this thread that will help identify the specific toy to be cautious of.

My Sol loves to play with little Nickle Plated Bells; he likes to try and get the pendulum out of the bell, and makes a racket the entire time <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> He also likes playing on ladders, and swinging in his Swing that Callejean made for him. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/heartpump.gif" alt="" />

Thank you for the concern. I don't take any offense to someone trying to help out. I never really noticed what was in there b/c it is completely sealed off but that is like the one i have except the plastic surrounding mine is much thicker. I generally check the toys every morning because I always put them back in their coconut after the lil ones are finished playing- Might just have to remove that toy tough.

Thanks!

My boys looooooooooove straws - just plain old plastic drinking straws. I tried giving them a feather toy, but they were more interested in the stick than the actual feathers. Now I just buy a box of plastic drinking straws and give them one to chase around and bite every night.

The only problem with those are I usually have to give them a new straw every night because they chew the one they're playing with to death.

No sense in doing so. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> Also Just so you know you're website pictures are down. I wanted to check out what goodies you have!


Are straws ok for them? I might get some so they can play with 'em if that's the case.

[:"green"]Thanks for the info about my pix being down on my website. I'll have to check that out.

As far as I know, straws are okay. I've heard of several people using them to make toys for their gliders. As with any toys, simply take them away when they get too damaged.

My glider loves: (this may take a minute) LOL
- fleece
- little stuffed animals
- feathers
- practice golf balls
- rubber bouncy balls
- teddy bears
- coconuts
- yarn
- liberty/cow bells
- bird toys
- cat balls w/ bell
- large tubes
- wheel
- anything that rattles
- baby toys (plastic keys used for teething)
- etc.

I also make my own toys so that he can have a variety of things to play with. I hate when he gets bored of toys. Makes me sad. :o( Therefore, I make toys A LOT! hahaha
