I had to remove Daisy's too recently. She's figured out how to get the seeds/treats in the cups and once those are gone (in the blink of an eye) then she turns her full-blown wrath on the poor toy for not giving her MORE treats! She beats the tar out of that thing and will wrangle it while fussing and cuss-chirping at it like someone was pulling out a tail feather! Poor toy.

She'll get it back sometime, but I'm going to have to figure out how to make it harder for her to get those treats!

Love your version Debra! Maui is a cutie.

I tried to give this toy back to Beaker, but as soon as it was in his cage he took all his frustrations out on it and threw some of the pellets around. Yeah.... I guess he won't be seeing this toy for a good while!

Geat ideas! I made one for Mr P using a cardboard box clipped to the side of his cage filed with bits of paper, seeds and plastic bottle caps which he loves and a q tip and some other random bits it is great watching him turf everything out

Well I dismantled his toy and remade it in a different design. It is also now a strictly out-of-cage toy so I can monitor his interactions with it.

Looks good! I love the mew design and I think I will have to try to make one for my boys now!
I got them a clear perspex foraging toy off ebay (it's like a box with shapes cut out of the sides. I put in millet since they go crazy for it, but I don't think they've figured out how to get it out yet! The toy you made looks like it might be slightly easier to figure out -- so maybe it's a better start than the box toy!
