Baby Eli had ton of new toys waiting for him when he came home!
Hunwick-Green Wing Macaw Louie-Military Macaw
I believe the #540 Mika's Manzanita Monster is what you recommended for my Green Wing at the Per Expo and it is finally on its last leg. So I do believe I have gotten my monies worth out of hat one. I need to order another one!
Repeat business in no problem from me (I know when I am getting quality and "safe" toys for my kids)!
CC, our umbrella cockatoo, helped wrap a Valentine for you!!! He had to choose the paper, find the ribbon, tie a bow but he never could it all together. HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY anyway!
Harold and Lucinda
Can you tell that I love your toys?!
You sound like such a caring and responsible parrot mom and I'm really happy to be doing business with you.
It's been great fun looking thru all your wonderful toys.
Hello again Kathy!
My toys came in the post today!! YAY! I am so happy to finally receive them - it made my day (week even!)! I put them in my rabbit's cage and they LOVE them as well. Thank you for being so wonderful through this process. I look forward to buying from you again - your products are fantastic, as are you :).
Thanks again for everything!
When you made the Aspen toy, I believe you had my macaw in mind- that is exactly what he needs! I'll take the Aspen toy 465 please.
Thanks for your help!!!
Hello Miss Kathy!!!
Since E-bay does not allow more than a few characters for feedback, I wanted to take this opportunity to let you know how grateful I am to you!
I opened the package this morning, looked at all three toys, and the beautiful name beads you also sent. I thank you a million times!!! I just love how you put it all together!
Anywho, I watched Sunnee to see his reactions when I removed three of his old toys and replaced them with these. He is not afraid of anything new in his "condo". Generally, he'll go to everything that is new; it's just his way.
The first toy? The "parrot shaped" toy with the straw hat! Yup, he destroyed the hat! My daughter is here from Sacramento & it was the first thing I told her that he would do. He spent the whole day (upside down, mind you!), going after that parrot's hat!! It truly was entertaining.
I will be visiting your site from time to time; I am a loyal customer and I'm blessed to have you as part of my wonderful E-bay selling family.
Take care always .................... and again, THANK YOU! :o)
You are terrific! I really was in a pickle because my pets are my whole life and when my spine goes out on me,I am good for nothing. Its people like you who are the sunshine of my life.TO help a handicapped person by doing this favor to me.It means sooo much and truly brings tears to my eyes.May God Bless you,YOU are a wonderful caring person.
Anyways My two birds are chewers from the word go and smart as a whip,lol.One is a very large Scarlet Macaw and the other a cockatoo.I will leave the toys to you and the price.Strawberry loves big toys to chew and Cupid loves the same because he follows with Strawberry and exchange perches to have fun with each others toys.Somehow each one thinks the others toys are better.They are a hoot.But both must be different.They need new toys badly.If I was a rich lady I would have oodles and oodles of toys for them because I love spoiling my babies but they are very costly.Thank heavens on eBay they are half the price than in the stores.So dear Kathy,its in your hands now(LOL).Write me on price and I will do it over the phone.
I love the toys you make, I've checked out your website a number of times as well. I'm working on setting up a parrot rescue. I realized over the years of rescuing parrots from different situations that I want to continue doing. I currently have 28 residents..11 of which are macaws.
I'll look for the package next week.
Hi Kathy ,
The big 444 Coconut , sisal rope and cotton rope toy was the answer. Its brought Cosmo out of his shell, and he is starting to work on it ! I added a higher perch, so he can get right to it, and he holds onto the leather star, and spins the coconut with one foot !
Thanks a bunch. I will likely need to order this next time and ask for extra leather stars on it, as he has also managed to get the leather all done with on the very first morning.
This is great. Thanks again, and hope you and Pop Eye, are doing well.
take care, and thanks a bunch !
take care !
Sorry to be so late in my Thankyou for Gizmo's name you sent. It hangs above is swing. My 6 year old thought that was really a cool thing. And as always the toys are spectacular and he loves each of them. There are a lot of bird toy people out there, but what sets you in front is the quality. Thanks a bunch and I will order soon.
Jenifer and Gizmo
As always, I am very pleased with the great toys. It’s amazing how different they all are. I wish you could see Cuddles the Destroyer stretching his neck to see what mama is going to unwrap next! He is on happy little camper. He is busy trying to figure out how to chew through the clothes pins on the wreath.
Jasper is amazed at all the pretty things, and he loves the bells.
Thanks again for your awesome toys,
I received the toys yesterday and they are great. I really loved them.
Thank you very much
What can I say? Cuddles, Jasper & I are addicted! I have attached a couple of pictures of Jasper. One picture is of Cuddles showing off his new feathers because now he has Ms. Kathy’s toys to play with!
Thanks again for the great toys!
The toys arrived today. Thank you so much for the two for Jasper! That was so very sweet! I love them both and I have already put his name on his playstand.
I just wanted you to know they toys are wonderful! Every time I pulled one out of the box, Cuddles watched with his little neck stretched way out waiting for me to unwrap it. He kept moving closer and closer. It was so cute and funny!
Thanks again for the great toys. I put up his sea handle and he is very busy trying to destroy it. J He has one long wing feather and several chest feathers, so your toys are more fun than barbering and plucking!
I know it won’t belong until I order again.
My cockatiel, rabbit and I were so happy to receive the package today! So far, Dewy the cockatiel has really enjoyed shredding up the hats and picking at the sisal rope and beads (I took pictures which I will send to you in another email). Smokey the dwarf rabbit was able to find the treats I put in his birdie bagels (I guess they should be called "rabbit bagels" now!). And I was very happy to see it come in such great condition. I love the toys (and so do my pets), so I guess that means I will be ordering more soon!

I just got my order today. I wanted to tell you how impressed I was with the toys. Haven't tried them out on my birds but I think they will be winners. They appear to be thoughtfully, well made. I love the wood in the toys I ordered. My Greys like to chew but some of the wood is too hard in some toys & unappealing. Your prices are so very reasonable. Thank you for providing a quality toy for an affordable price.

As usual the toys are fabulous. I have a B and G Macaw named Gizmo. He really enjoys toys and yours are made so nice. Thank you again and have a great weekend.
I have ordered a lot of bird toys but yours are TOPS. I will
be ordering again. Thank you so much.

JUST WANTED TO THANK YOU FOR SWEET PEA'S TOYS. THEY ARE LOVELY AND WERE A GREAT PRICE. IT TOOK HER OVER A WEEK TO GET USED TO IT, BUT SHE CAME AROUND. SHE ACTALLY LIKES THE RIBBON MORE THAN THE ROPE!!!!
SWEET PEA AND I THANK YOU AND YOU'LL BE HEARING FROM US AGAIN!
Just a short note to thank you again for making Mozart his own special toy!
Sorry I didn't respond to let you know that I received your note on this shipping info. until now, but I've been running non-stop for the past two days!
I know Mozart will love it and I can hardly wait to see him play with his new toy that was named after him!
I do hope that you sell lots of these, and I may be ordering another one from you again soon!
Terri and Mozart
Hi Kathy.....In case I didn't write and thank you for the wonderful job that you did in making my last order. There's just been too much going on this past month. Anyway, I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas and have a Happy New Year!
Thanks again.....Diane & Gianni
Thank you very much for making such adorable toys! My order arrived this
afternoon, and I love everything I bought. I'm sure my flock will enjoy
chewing them up, too.
Thanks again! Wendy
I want to thank you for making up my special order Cockatoo toy at the Novi Pet Expo. Dusty really loves his new toy. I might have walked right past it, until I asked you what do you have that a Cockatoo would enjoy. It always helps to know that someone else has personally had good luck with a toy before you buy it just because it's pretty or something.
I just want to let you know that my package has arrived, and everything is
great, as always. You are definitely one of the best on the internet!
Thanks a bunch.
My macaw, Woody, loves the toy you made for him.
He especially likes the bright pink (tie dye fabric).
Thanks. I'll be ordering more later.
Hi Kathy: What a great job you did on the toys and what a nice surprise (the free toy.) I was down to my last one when these arrived.
Yes, I would LOVE to buy your custom Cosmo concoction Let's see how my occasion loving squawker likes it.
thanks for doing what you do for the boyds.
I received the box full of goodies!
I have a feeling I’m going to pre-order another parrot buddy! As soon as I put the parrot in the conure’s cage he starting cuddling it, talking to it and blowing kisses! It was hilarious!
Talk to you in a few weeks!!!
Hey, got the toys yesterday! Thanks so much... I put a few in this morning, did the long ladder. Rio destroyed a rung right away of course! I brought him out of the bedroom to put him in his big cage and when he saw the toys he got all puffy and his eyes were just pining!!! so funny. he was excited! Wish I could afford $500 worth! I'll definitely be ordering more from you. your shipping is cheaper than driving to the cities too.
Hi Kathy: The toys arrived today and they are wonderful. Thank you so much. I will be telling my friends about your company and I'll be shopping again with you soon I'm sure.
I sure don't mind waiting for your quality and fun looking toys! I just
wasn't sure if I gave you my mailing/shipping address.
Thank you for your quick reassurance that you received my order!
Just letting you know I received the toys yesterday.
Thank you so much for the bells for the conure- the second I put the toy in his cage he jumped on my hand to play with the bells as I was closing the clasp!
And of course my other termite birds have started chewing their wood and are loving it!
Thank you again!
The WONDERFUL toys for CC arrived yesterday and now, I can't wait to re-arrange his cage. I think I am going to take his old ones out even though I hate to give him all of his new ones at once. They are so well made and I know he will enjoy them for a long time.

Well, the Bunny Braid went over REALLY well with Moose! He shredded
the thing within about 24 hours. Marylin goes more for toys she can
throw around and break. She tries REALLY hard to break everything I
give her. Fortunately, the new toys are holding up to her 16 pound
Please except my apology for my harsh statement. I received my order today. Upon opening and seeing the items in the box, it was worth the wait. The toys are above and beyond expectations. Thank you very much, Mr. Trump (the cockatoo) also thanks you. I hope my next order wont be throw out as a (oh no) not that person. haha. Again my sincere apology.
I just wanted to drop you a quick note and let you know Cuddles new toys arrived. I immediately hung the Fruits & Veggies and the Textured Jelly Fish. He is one happy little fellow. He keeps going from one to the other and he is hollering wanting mama to look at what he’s doing. Thank you for making and delivering them so promptly. He is happily chewing away.
Sherri & Cuddles
I'm sending you another happy custmer comment! My FIDs and I always love your toys, especially the fall and Halloween ones. Yu always have s
something that's perfect for each of tmy 3 babies. Thanks!
This is not a paid advertisement but I had to recommend this store. I have Brandy, a LS2, whose believes wholeheartedly that everything in the world should be destroyed. Toys just don't last and I don't have the creativity to make my own. I have been looking for really solid, large toys that are more challenging to her.
is EXCELLENT. Prices are reasonable and I wrote and told them what type of bird I had, along with her destructive tendencies and they even beefed up the way the toys were made to last longer (chain instead of sisal or leather). I think they make toys themselves. Great company, good prices, fast shipping and massively heavy (my arms got tired trying to hang them in the cage), sturdy toys for hard chewers.
They also have toys that would be a great fit for smaller birds.
In a previous order, I had bought the Palm Leaf Bagel Holder for my
caiques. They ignored it.
But, my two little linnies, Peepers & Punkin absolutely LOVE this toy!
Here are a couple of pics of them playing with it on "LinnieLand"
(I do tend to go overboard in the toy department. Can you tell?!) LOL!
Oh my heavens!!! I received my package—got side tracked with “life” (you know what I mean), nary a moment to open it until now. I must tell you, with sincere honesty, your products simply have surpassed what I anticipated receiving. They are genuinely creative—the best shredders I’ve purchased. Colorful, tactile, sensory; it is very evident you take parrot play very seriously. I cannot wait to see what Oingo thinks of them! We will begin working on that just as soon as I send this your way!
Please do mention my words to your very talented staff. As they really are from the heart.
I am simply amazed at Cuddles’ improvement; and, I think her caretaker is most certainly correct that it must have to do with the wonderful toys from A Unique Idea! I’m a bit partial to Senegals, also—as we have one of our own. A rescue like our new Oingo.
I will certainly keep you updated on Oingo’s progression with these wondrous creations. Thought I would include a picture of her blissful shower. She blesses us unbelievably so.
Thank you again!!!
And, do call me “Anna”
I was quite surprised to see the shipping notice for the fabulous shredder toys I placed on order so soon. And, I offer a very necessary apology as it really was an oversight on my part to not understand that you actually hand-create toys as orders are placed. It is refreshing to know that your toys are not housed in dust-filled warehouses or carted to bird shows; I honestly didn’t know a company like yours existed, truthfully. I would like, too, to mention that your selection of shredder toys surpasses ANYthing I’ve seen offered anywhere. And, when it comes to a rescue with plucking concerns, shredders are so very important.
We look forward to Oingo’s (Congo African Grey rescue) order to come in due time. And, I’d also like to say that your responsiveness, too, is very welcomed. I will be telling my parrot friends of your company and hope that they will frequent your business as well.
Thank you again!
Here are a few pictures of Cuddles with his new feathers. I was gone last week for a few days and he removed a few feathers. L He is so excited. His and Jasper’s new toys just arrived. I know that your toys are what helped him feather out. I don’t know if you kept his picture from when I first ordered your toys, so I included it. Even with the few missing from last week, his new feathers are remarkable! He thinks he’s a big boy now because he can fly (kind of) to mama’s desk. Thanks again for all your great toys.
Thanks again for everything,
So you can see both of my birds enjoy your toys. This is Georgie he is 13 years old Cockatiel and he does not destroy toys the way Dylan does. When Dylan destroys a toy I take it apart salvage the pieces that are not destroyed and he uses them as foot toys. That is where I got the idea for the hat. Thanks again I am always happy with everything that I have purchased from you.
Dylan is 10 mos old, Glad you like the pics with the hat!
Here are the pics, he loves being able to move from swinging perch to stand. Tell your dad Thank you. Gizmo says Thank you to. Everything is wonderful as usual.

Sorry to bother you but I just wanted to thank you for the great
quality toys! My boyfriend recently ordered toys from your website for our
rabbit, a lion head named Winston! I just received them in the mail and I
have to say, I was blown away! They are fantastic and it took no time at all
for my bunny (and cats!!!!) To be interested in the toys! I believe the cats
are also very thankful for the toys because Winston won't be constantly
Thank you again! - Ashley and Winston
