It's no secret that birds are highly intelligent. In fact, some birds are as choosy about their toys as children are. So when choosing a toy for your pet, keep in mind the same considerations that apply to a child's toy: First, make sure it's safe. Second, choose one that will entertain the animal without frustrating him. Some of the best toys are simple things found around the house. A soft, unpainted wooden block can be used like a pacifier. Paper towel tubes, plain paper plates, manila folders and practically any nontoxic wooden or paper item that can be picked apart can safely keep birds busy for hours.
