How We Chose The Best Parrot Toys
Parrots are smart, social birds that need entertainment and stimulation. Unfortunately, you can’t give your bird your constant attention so toys will have to suffice. You want something that keeps their mind active, has bright colors to entice them, and perhaps something that can keep their beak trimmed.
There are plenty of toys available for parrots, from mentally stimulating to fun chew toys. We’re going to take a look at a few and give you our recommendations.

This isn’t a toy for every parrot—it’s one for the geniuses. Do you want to have one of those viral sensations that can perform tricks and entertain the masses? You can with this, with some patience, training and a naturally smart and inquisitive birdie.
With this bundle you get:
- A toy skateboard for parrots.
- Block puzzles.
- Basketball toy with three balls and a hoop.
- Stacking toy, hoops on a stick.
- Sepak takraw toys.
It’s a set that can stimulate their minds, and it’s all made of non-toxic wood and ABS. The materials make it safe, the bright colors make it attractive to parrots, and the five toys make this a highly valuable bundle.
This bundle suits most types of parrots and some smaller birds—though since it suits smaller birds, the skateboard might be an issue. It’s a suitable size for budgies so some fussy or enormous parrots may find it overly large.
Even if they don’t like to skate though, there are four other toys in bright colors that are bound to attack your parrot’s eye.
- Five toys in the pack.
- Brightly colored to draw attention.
- Fantastic mind stimulation.
- Skateboard may be too small for some parrots.
This toy is better for all parrots, not just the geniuses. It’s a colorful mound of string and blocks that will draw your bird’s attention and keep it.
It’s about the same size as a large parrot, so it’s a fantastic companion for them. Smaller or younger parrots may even be able to climb this toy for some extra fun. If not, your parrot still has layers of fun to dig through.
Not only does the toy keep your bird’s mind occupied, but it keeps their beak and possibly their nails trimmed, too. All materials are natural so there’s no danger in having a nibble. That said, the toy isn’t parrot-proof.
You need to be careful and aware with this toy—more aggressive or bitey parrots will likely have these destroyed soon after purchase. One user’s cockatoo has them gone in minutes, and another’s parrot only had it for a month before it was unusable.
Users recommend the toy for smaller parrots, and wish it was more durable given its suitability for larger birds.
- Highly enticing to parrots.
- Great for keeping the beak trimmed.
- Suitable for small to large parrots.
- Not as durable as users would like—feisty parrots eat this thing up.
If you’d rather your parrot’s cage have a neater look, here’s another chew toy they may like. Made of beads and soft sticks, there’s plenty for birdie to nibble on. The wood is gentle, the toy held loosely together with no toxins, so it’s fully safe for your bird to chomp.
Outside of the beak-trimming benefits, though, these sticks move. That can keep your parrot’s mind occupied as they pull the sticks around to create shapes or straighten them up. Users say this is exciding for their birds, and they adore how safe it is for them, too. One user praised the lack of glue in this toy’s construction.
But again, we have the same problem as the toy above. Some parrots nibble this thing to death in no time. Thankfully it’s not too pricey so you can buy a few at a time, but it’s still unfortunate.
Luckily it’s designed to be flipped upside down. So say like one user’s bird, your parrot focuses on one area that hangs near their perch. You can flip the toy, providing a new nibbling ground until that one is destroyed too.
Very much a smart move on Bonka’s part there—it’s just a shape the wood isn’t tougher. Still, we’re sure a smart, inventive person could replace the sticks themselves after having a few ice creams, right?
- Great for nibbling.
- The sticks move to stimulate the mind.
- Too easy to chew into pieces.
If you’d like a more interesting looking toy for your bird, this little wall has lots of play with. The colors draw the eye, the wall trims their beak and the toys provide hours of pulling, chewing and pecking entertainment.
Your bird can also climb on this, the gaps are the perfect size for little parrot feet. It’s fully safe to do so thanks to the manufacturer’s design.
Some parrot owners report such success with this toy that their parrots wanted more than one, and it kept them going for months. The same user with two of these has a tip: sprinkle some seed on it. That way your bird can dig for the seed, providing further incentive to get in and play.
Be careful not to do this too often, though. Too much chewing destroys the mat part of the toy. One cockatoo had it gone in only five days!
Again, luckily it’s not a pricey toy so you can buy a few. Perhaps this toy is less of a permanent fixture in some cages, and more like an occasional treat. That seems to be an unfortunate feature of most of these toys, doesn’t it?
- Allows parrots to forage.
- Lots of toy variety to stave off boredom.
- Superb for climbing on.
- Easily destroyed by more aggressive birds.
The best parrot toy out of this group is the Yuesuo 5pcs Parrot Toys Set. It’s the only one the parrots can’t chew to death in a matter of days. Plus, it can help get your bird smarter, entertained and entertaining.
You also can’t deny the value in this toy, given that it’s technically five (or maybe four, for large birds) in one. The rest of these toys are about half its price for one easily destroyable toy, so that’s definitely a win for the Yuesuo in our book.
