Smile Safe bell toys?

So I have been searching for hours online looking for a bell toy that is made from safe material. Most toys I have seen with bells or with metal clasps do not list what kind of metal it is. I want to get my budgie more toys but I don't want her to get metal poisoning. Does anyone know of any safe bell toys?

Have you looked through the listings in the Resource Directory?

My Safe Bird Store

Amazon has stainless steel bell toys also.
The clasp used to attach the toy to the cage is safe to use.

I love to buy my toys from mysafebirdstore.com They really know their stuff when it comes to birds, and they only buy from known and trusted companies. Stainless bells are very hard to find. This was even confirmed by my avian vet who owns the toy and supply store I go to. That said; most safe bells and bird toy metals are made from nickel plated steel. This material is used by parrots (much larger and stronger than a budgie) and it is fine.

The part that can potentially be a hazard, is the clapper. If the beak bends the metal that holds the clapper in, either a bird can swallow the clapper, or a smaller bird can get their tongue stuck in the crevice of the opened metal where the clapper used to hang. Always check any type of toys for wear and damage.

Thank you guys so much! I have been looking at those sites and have seen a lot of cool toys. If you don't mind me asking, which toys do you guys have? Mainly swings/ bell toys. Do either of you guys have platform perches? I saw a picture of the seashell one on one of the stickies and now I am curious as to what platforms are best.

My birds enjoy a variety of different types of toys. I have other birds as well as budgies, but my budgies really love swings; especially swings with little toys going up the sides so they can play while they sit there. They enjoy chewing and shredding materials that aren’t too hard, such as balsa and yucca woods, toys made with poly rope, which is like a small rope about 3/16” wide, and made up of tiny woven plastic strings. They love little bells, plastic straw toys, wicker, paper or cardboard, and palm leaf toys. Budgies are funny little things.. I love to watch them play .

I have multiple swings in all my birds cages.
Mine particularly like their grapevine perch swings.

I have the clam shell perch (which is a calcium-mineral block as well) and a couple of wooden platform perches that look like part of a branch that's been sawed in half.
