I would not recommend using the plastic budgie inside your bird's cage.
Budgies can easily become obsessed with toys that look similar to them leading to aggressive and territorial behavior. Some budgies will even regurgitate to the toy to the point they become malnourished.

I'm not going to use the one that's included, however he already has had this inside with him for many many months. It was basically the only thing that brought him back to life somewhat after his cagemate died:

Just keep an eye on your budgie, and look for the behaviors mentioned above by FaeryBee. Just because they haven’t ever exhibited these behaviors and have been okay with the toy, keep in mind it can start happening.
