Talking Toy haul!

Today I went out in a quest to find new toys to replace everything I tossed when I moved from Vancouver to Montreal. Now, I am a fool, and thought 'Hey, Montreal is literally 3 times bigger in population than Vancouver, they should have plenty of bird stores!'
No. No they most certainly do not. So it has been rather trying finding supplies that are actually safe and fun for the budgies. I do have the avian vet near my house (one of the reasons we moved to the neighbourhood we did) but they only have a limited selection.
I walked past Too Zoo ( TooZoo ) a while ago with my husband while we were exploring the city and saw some cute stuff in the window for cats, so I figured I'd look them up online about their scratching posts. And lo and behold, they have a large small animal selection as well according to their website!
Today I was so happy I almost cried when I walked in. It's nothing like West Coast Tropical in Vancouver, but it's miles above the tiny section I've found so far in other pet stores buried under all the cat and dog stuff.
Here is my haul:

A new play gym! I got rid of their old one because I couldn't take it apart to ship. I prefer their old one, but this one will do.

Here it is assembled.

Back of toy kit. I've actually been looking for this kit for a while, haha!

Sweetie was impressed with the new stuff.
"These toys are for us? Thanks mom!"

I got a bunch of cat toys too. All in all I spend a little over $100, but I'm okay with that as I was replacing a big item and got quite a bit.
They also have two birds who live in the store! One was named Hugo, who actually just boards there when his owners go traveling for work. He's a senegal and he was whistling at me and calling 'Hello? Helloooooo!!'
The second was named Trouble and he is a pineapple conure. I got to hold him and he demanded head scratches as he had pinnies all around his neck. He also whistled to me, but whenever I would turn and look at Yugo he'd yell HEY at me until I gave him more scritches, hahaha. I didn't get any pictures of them though as they didn't like my phone.

I will definitely be back.

That's a nice haul of treats for some very lucky little bird. That's a very happy bird face if ever I've seen one!

Sweetie seems as if he is quite pleased with all the new toys.

I'm glad Too Zoo came through for you!

(Sorry, I couldn't help myself! )
