We wanted to try buying directly from the source rather than through amazon, and will definitely be buying again here because the prices plus shipping (or rather, lack of) was amazing. We bought a few of them to start off with for our five cockatiels and while a couple of them are still hesitant about the “scary new toys,” the others are obsessed. One of our rescue boys love this particular toy to scratch himself on. Namely one of our girls, who loves the tags the most. We ended up saving those since they’re made out of a safe material and making our own diy out of it. That’s her favorite out of all the others.
