The "rungs" on the ladder are craft sticks. I had no idea what I was going to do with them...but they were a great price so I got some.

I just strung them thru craft lace and/or strips of fleece, used pony beads...some have bells on the ends, etc.

Gizmogirl, you show off! Dang, I wish I was your suggie!!

Wowie! what a great thread, this should be a special page with the cage pics! I'm gonna bookmark this link, and come back to it when I feel motivated lol (and get some extra cash)

Looks like lots of fun too! I'm sure my daughter would love to make some of these with me! Great(fun) rainy day projects (that don't involve cleaning lol)

Where ever do you get stuff to make these things?? Like the medicine cups for a foraging toy??

Hmmmm, my poor suggies have getto toys lmao!

anywho, here is the toy I made, no laughing:

What do you use to string the beads? I have wire and like an elastic string from jewelry making.

Thanks in advance wink

Dont knock yourself Kimberlyann...I like that toy a lot...those little baskets are adorable!

And I just use craft lace, or thin strips of fleece.

I find my toy making stuff at birdsnestonline.com but there's a ton of sites that sell them....google bird toy making supplies...then you won't get off your computer LOL

A spool of RexLace is pretty cheap ~ like $2.00 @ Hobby Lobby. It's over with the kids' crafts. It's the plastic lace you use to make keychains.

I'm thinking Liezle may have to be so darn resourceful living in Africia ~ shipping may cost more than the toys she could order from vendors here in the states. There may not be as much to choose from over there either as far as Dollar Stores and such.

thumb Great job!

I've been making my own toys for a few years now but I don't think I have pics on my laptop ~ I'll check.

LOL - Liezl's been praying for a Walmart store here in South Africa for such a long time. Imagine what she could make when she has access to all the things available in a Walmart store!

You all are too kind. And you all have got me motivated to make some new stuff. With the landware net and fleece and some stuff I bought at the store I should be able to come up with something fun for them and it'll be fun for me too.

But first a nap.....*yawwn*

Wow, great toys everyone! I'm going to be creating some albums on the new FB page I created (Sweet Sugar Gliders) for people to share their toys, cage sets, & glider rooms. I love seeing everyone's creative ideas. I hope some of you will post in there when I get the album started.

I have a few toys we created last year, but haven't put in our store yet because we're still working out a few kinks...

This one is called the Whoopsie Daisy. We like to hide treats in the bottom. We're still working out the best way to secure the barrel to the plate or something to keep it from tipping over. The hot glue doesn't always seem to hold perfectly. The gliders enjoy it though & the flower part wobbles back & forth.



And this one is called Monkey Balloon. I have heard some gliders will try to get inside the ball, so we're saying it's more of a supervision-only toy. But our gliders have had it in their cage for over a year & have never tried to get inside of it, so that's really more of a precaution. Next time we make them, we may use slightly larger chain (to prevent chewing) & a slightly bigger ball, with bigger holes to reduce the safety concern of gliders getting stuck in the holes. I like it because it's a reset toy & we get to hang the monkeys back up for them.



Any of those pics can be clicked on to view a larger image.

Thanks, Kimberlyann. It's still not exactly how I want it (the middle cup kind of tilts further downward than I want), but I think the gliders will love it.
