: My glider loves his ball too, but like yours, was unsure at first. I however, found a small "mini" ball that he likes even better. Keep your eyes open for one of those! You may need to tape the door though, they can open easily.
: I also have a hammock that I put in the cage, and my little boy Peanut likes to get on it and then "wrestle" with my hand. I found that baby toys make some of the best things for glider play. I shop garage sales, thrift stores and dollar stores to find stuff. I hang them from the top of his cage by old shower curtain rings, which I also found at these places. The best ones have large moving beads, bells, mirrors(he's a little vain) and blocks. I also look at the bird toys in pet stores for ideas, and then go home and make my own. It is much less expensive that way!
: If you just want something from around the house, try old paper towel rollers, empty cardboard canisters- such as the ones oatmeal comes in, and cotten balls. Try putting a few kleenex in the canisters, Peanut loves that !
: Happy Glider Play!!!
: : Just wondering.... on impulse, I got my glider a big ole hampster ball and a little hammock. In your opinions, is that a good or a bad move??? She seems a little apprehensive,yet curious, about both! Any other ideas for cage toys??
: : Thank you!
