Where is everyone getting these fake leaves from? Maybe that is why I never see my kids tail wrapping because they do not have fun leaves to play with?

I get my fake vines from hobby lobby. I'm sure there are some other places that carry them too.

Other good things for tail carriers are plastic bangles and milk jug rings (cut so that they can't hurt themselves).

At the dollar tree they have the safe vines (the ones without wire!) you can buy some of those and strip one to put in a toy somewhere and hang the others. Rodan LOVES those vines.

She means taking the leaves off. thumb

I find that my kids strip their own vines (no help from me wink ). Mine also really like the small flowers and stuff their pouches with them.

Gretchen, I know you can buy the fake flowers that are not connected to the stems. Is there any certain kind (fabric material wise) that can be used vs some made of material that you should not use. I hope that made sense! lol

Mine like the flowered vines (I only find them every once in a while - the ones filled with small flowers).

As far as fake flowers to use/not use - I stay away from the flowers and leaves that have that fake dew or water droplets on them. And if they have a fuzzy center, I don't use those either. Some of the vines have styrofoam balls added, but you can usually just pull those off.

Most of the fabric and plastic plants work fine for mine, just watch the fabric because it sometimes ravels, so I pull those pieces out.

Ok, that helps thankyou Gretchen!

I tried the wire free vines but none of my crew ever touched them and then they started to smell from urine getting on them and soaking in. I threw them away I was so disgusted. I figure they might like the loose ones better.

Mine do the same thing.. and instead of a ball pit, I sometimes use the loose leaves that they've stripped. They love digging around in their "leaf pit" agree

I wash the vines in the dishwasher (no heat drying) so I can keep using them until there aren't any more leaves, that is. smile

I get mine from hobby lobby they have a huge selection. The gliders love them and are so cute when they are tarring them up.

I found these really cool leaf things at the dollar tree. I don't really know how to describe them. They are just a sprig of really big leaves. I weaved them through the backs and the sides of the cage. Anywho the leaves and stems are strong enough for them to climb on. My fuzzy butts love them! I also get my vines at the dollar tree.. However, I never thought of making a little leaf pit for them after they destroy the vine.. I will now though.. Double the money.. lol.. I just found the balls for the ball pit. My Wally world doesn't carry them. But we visited a Meijer 30 miles away and Yay we got them!
