Default Paradise Sisal Activity Sphere

Hey everyone! I've been meaning to review this product for a while now, but, well, I'm kind of lazy *cough cough*.

So anyways, I'm finally going to write a review for PT678 Paradise Sisal Activity Sphere - BOINGS/BUNGIES & SWINGS!

This orbit is just wonderful. It's made from sisal and has colourful plastic chains hanging from it, along with a "cow bell" in the centre. This thing can easily accommodate two moody budgies, and up to four BFFs without a problem. The four different "sides" of the orbit is separated by horizontal beams(?) of sisal, meaning the budgies aren't standing right next to each other, helping to prevent any squabbling.

I've had it for a few months now, and my kids love the thing. Honestly, it offers something for everyone. It's great for budgies who enjoy swings, company, preening toys, acrobatics, chains, or bells, or all of the above, plus much more! My babes love rubbing their heads against it because apparently the sisal scritches your head in the most amazing way .

Furthermore, you can take foraging to the next level with this orbit. You can stuff the chain links with fruits and veggies such as apple, carrot, leafy greens, and much more. Your little ones will have to hang upside down or cling to the chains to eat those yummy foods .

My little Alice just LOVES jingling the chains! They're one of the few things Alice will actually play with. She, along with the others, love playing with the little sisal fibres that poke out from it. I know that strings can pose a hazard to budgies, but few strings are longer than a few millimeters in length, and are extremely difficult to pull out or chew off. Theoretically, if a budgie were to remove one of the fibres, I seriously doubt the little guy would swallow it. The fibres would be both difficult and irritating to swallow.

You definitely get your money's worth for this product. I ordered mine from MySafeBirdStore for around $20.

If you're interested in this product, you should note that it's a pretty decent size (a bit smaller than a basket ball...probably), making an ideal communal "perch" for an aviary, double-flight cage, or for hanging from the ceiling.

Thanks for the review...have been looking for some new toys...they have some of those plastic chains in their cage already and love to play with them, so I'm sure they would enjoy this toy - as you mentioned, built for multiple birds.

I'm glad you like the review . It's seriously a must have. I really love how more than one bird can use it at a time. The chains are definitely a nice touch, too .

Since you mentioned you were looking for some more toys, you might want to try this too: PP41193 Planet Pleasures Kokokrunchers Hanging Mat Toy - PLANET PLEASURES

All of my budgies enjoy hanging off the Kokokruncher toy and gnawing on it. It might take your budgies a while to figure out that it's intended for shredding (it took my kids months to figure it out), but they'll definitely enjoy it. It's intended for medium parrots, so it takes quite a bit of time and effort to destroy, but it's definitely doable.

Nice review. I had this toy for my birds for a while. It was well played with and the birds loved to stand inside of it.

Thanks for reviewing these toys.. I've had my eye on these or similar for awhile now.. Think I'll just have to go ahead and get them.
