New product award winner in 2016, the Blocks and Knots™ provides hours of shredding fun. We start with food safe cardboard blocks - 4 inch squares for large and medium, and 3 inch by 1.75 inch for the small version. We then string the blocks together by hand using our Safe Shred™ Cotton Rope, which shreds into fine short cotton threads. Others use yarn rope that unravels into long thick sections that can entangle a bird. The large Blocks N Knots™ is over 2 feet long, Medium 21 inches, and Small 12 inches.
Play Tip - Kick it up a notch by hiding some of your birds favorite nuts in the blocks. Simply cut a small slot in the top of the block and push a seed or seeds into the block.
My starlings aren't "toy birds," but they do love this toy. It's a keeper!
Bird loves it
They immediately started chewing on them. Good enrichment option.
I have a finicky amazon parrot who will absolutely refuse to play with a toy after the main shredding part is gone, but he loves to shred both the blocks and the rope on this toy! When we get a new order of them, the moment my parrot sees the toys he is all hyped up and ready to play 10/10
I have to take these apart into 3 toys for my African Grey (he likes smaller chews) but he can't get enough. These blocks are super foraging toys with a nice crunchy pop for shredding. Warning: They'd probably last about 1/2 a minute for larger birds or more aggressive shredders. But amazing for us!
