Shopping for Budgie Cage and play stand

I am shopping for Budgie cages...two of them and I would like to know if any of you have found some nice cages suitable for a budgie and maybe give your reason as to why you think its a good cage and also I will be purchasing a play stand or gym for budgie Elsa so it would be nice to hear what works what to look out for and also what to avoid when it comes to both cage and playstand. Its been a while now since I had a Budgie of my own and though for geography reasons I might not be able to get a particular cage thats suggested I might be able to find something similar. Im sure there are many things available now that werent there years ago so I would appreciate all your suggestions and input. Thank you from me and Elsa

Be careful with the wire cages, there are many toe traps in the design!

Re: Shopping for Budgie Cage and play stand

What fun! I hear cage and toy shopping is the best possible treatment for MBS.

Elsa is going to love her new palace! My budgies' first cage was very pretty but the design made it a problem to keep clean. If space allows I would suggest a flight cage, lots of room for natural perches and plenty of toys.

My budgies prefer hanging play stands, they were aviary raised and they aren't terribly friendly, they have each other and like it that way. You should check out some of the super cute table top play stands for Elsa.
