Question jingle balls

Hi. I want to get the flock some jingle balls, but I'm wondering if some are safer than others. Any concern about the ball part sufficiently protecting from contact with the jingle bell? I'm thinking of the potential for both heavy metal poisoning and little toes getting caught.

Any styles/models more popular than others?

Thank you!

My budgies and lovebirds have access to two types of jingly balls.

Mine seem to prefer the texture on the plastic of this type of ball (the pink one)
which is more malleable.


They will mostly play with them when having out of cage time under my supervision and mine don't have the interest nor the habit of trying to get to the jingle bell inside, they just use their beaks to play ball with.
My birds have never had a problem/accident with either of these toys.

You're very welcome. I got both types at a large supermarket, on the toys for cats section.

The main thing to look out for it that the material is sturdy enough not to be bitten thru. I have had some that were so flimsy my birds bit chunks out of the plastic, and the next thing is that the holes are small enough to be safe... I have a bunch like the pink one with the love bird.

The jingle ball toys my budgies and lovebirds have are like the ones below. They play with theirs during out-of-cage time.
I've never had any problems with either the budgies nor the lovebirds getting toes caught in them.

My birds like throwing them.
None of my brids have ever tried to chew through the plastic.
This particular type ball has a plastic bell inside which I like because there is no worry about any metal parts.

You can purchase them at Petco in the Cat Toys section of the store.

My budgies have one (that Chip used to love), but I think he ignores it now. It's in the cage, and it's never posed any problems. It is the style like aluz's adorable Khaleesi is playing with in the first photo. It doesn't have any openings sized for hazard to budgies, and is built strongly enough. For parrots with bigger beaks, I'd use strictly as a supervised out of cage toy only.

Ps.. I've moved this thread to the product review section.

I'll probably end up with a selection--I'll let everybody know which are the biggest hits!
