Default who is most cuddly and playful parrot ?

I have experience with budgies, cockaties and some what experience of indian ringnecks (not first hand, but friend have it).

I am building a new house, and would have enough space to buy a new parrot or a pair.

I would like to know, which is the most cuddly and playful parrot with some what good talking abilities. I have seen lorries and they are really sweet (the kind i would like), but being in india, i think i cant feed them properly as commercial nectar products are not available here.

I would like a parrot, who is outgoing, playful, loves to cuddle, curious, and can learn to speak few words. Which are the good candidates that you would recommend ?

I'd look at the smaller parrots if it were me.
Although they aren't known for the ability to learn to speak, they are fun, playful curious, love to cuddle and bond strongly with a human when you get a young one and work with it.

Do a little bit of research on Lovebirds, Parrotlets and Linnies to see if any of them strike your fancy.

No, I'm sorry I do not.
Perhaps one of our other members will be able to offer some suggestions.

Congratulations for your new house

Enough space to buy new parrot is fine but spending lots of time is required for bonding if you can do that from Budgie to African Grey every parrot will reward your efforts

Intelligence level of African Grey is the best

In my opinion go for Indian ring neck

I have only ever seen a couple of Indian Ringnecks that made good pets and I have hand raised up to 100 of them and they exhibit unwanted characteristics before they have even weaned.

But their big cousin the Alexandrine is a much more gentle and laid back bird. They are smart, can talk (both sexes) and are also not as noisy as many other parrots including the Indian Ringneck. A hand raised Alex makes a great pet bird. They do have some issues when going through sexual maturity, but once that is over they will calm back down again beautifully. Should also be fairly easily obtained in India. They are basic seed eaters with the addition of fruit and vegetables, so diet is not difficult. Personal preference is for the Nepalese which is found in North and Central India and Bhutan to Assam in Northeast India. That is just India but they are also found in Eastern Afghanistan, Pakistan and Nepal.

I have no experience but if I were looking for the qualities you are, I would
be giving serious consideration to the quaker parrot....

Quakers are great! They have everything you wanted but they can be noisy. No matter which type of parrots, I feel it's really how much time you spend bonding with them.

I have had many people suggest me quaker for my requirements. Have to see how easily can i get a weaned baby here. I may probably get alexandrine this season. (which is in a month)

Can quaker compete with lorries in term of playfullness, activeness and cuddles ?
If somehow i can figureout that i can get lorri food here in india ?

Short of making your own Lory food you would probably have to get it via mail order. It is not possible to collect enough flowers for them to get the amount of pollen and nectar they need. They also eat and need fruit and vegetables.
