Buying birdtoys internationally?

Iím having a wee bit of a hard time buying bird toys online. Most sites donít sell internationally and the few that do have insane shipping charges (the shipping cost is x3 times greater than the orders itself!). Amazon has limited options regarding bird toys and I would like to get my birdies more stuff.

Does anyone know / buys from any websites that sell internationally? Iím located in India.

Thank you.

Re: Buying birdtoys internationally?

ooooh, yikes! Not sure which sites supply to India.

In Singapore, we don't typically use Amazon either. And American and Aussie sites are wayyyy to expensive both for the toys and for the shipping.

We have regional sites that specialise in shipping from overseas, such as Lazada, EZbuy, TaoBao, qoo10, AliExpress, etc. I guess, my best recommendation would be to find another site that does something similar - either a freight forwarder website or an online site that offers overseas products. I know India doesn't have most of the websites I listed, but it looks like maybe AliExpress handles the India market as well?

Yes, it does! AliExpress is the only website Iíve found (so far) that ships to India. I orderd few toys back in the begining of Feb and got the first shipment today. Thank you for your input - Iím going to try and see if the other websites you recommended ship to India. Thank you!

Re: Buying birdtoys internationally?

Remember that many baby toys will be of just as much interest to a Parrot.
Always remember to take the older toys apart, saving the parts to build more toys from. Along that line, watch for parts commonly used in building toys so that you can build your own.

Have you tried Bonka Bird Toys? I believe they ship internationally though not sure about shipping rates.
