Beating up on toys..

Sponsored Links
....Amy has a ton of toys,and plays with the occasionally. She has a large rubber type bell that she always bangs on in the morning when I say hello to her.
On her play top she has a few hanging from her perch and a couple laying on the play top floor pan.
There is one particular one,it has a couple foraging boxes with rope going thru them.
Last night she was on her play top and as I watched her,she was picking the boxes up in the air and SLAMMING them back down repeatedly,all the while being all poofed up,arms out wide and making all sorts of Amazon noises..clearly she was having a ball lol.
This went on for about ten minutes. I never really saw her play like that and it warmed my heart to see her enjoying herself and acting like an Amazon for once.
Wish I had my camera ready lol.

Re: Beating up on toys..

Sounds nice! Clark goes hostile over a little wireframe plastic ball with a bell in it. At first I thought he hated it, then one day he crawled down my arm, picked it up off the desk, camly carried it back up my arm....then began beating the hell out of it again.

So basically it's one of his favorite toys.

Re: Beating up on toys..

Saltys fav beat upon foot toy is this wooden thing, 2 discs with bars between them and a bell in side. He beats the hell out of it every morning before he is allowed out for the day. Throws it around with his beak, his feet and even rolls on his back with it so he can attack it with everything he can. And DONT you mess with that toy! I made the mistake last nite of bringing it to my bed to play with him and it. I got 3 nice bites from Salty to show that I was not respecting his personal toy, Other foot toys, no problems, but dont mess with that one!

Re: Beating up on toys..

My Bingo goes bonkers for pill bottle containers, the bigger the better.
If he grabs them just right he can throw them 3 feet in the air.

tried to video this. as soon as he sees me holding my phone in his direction he stops.
