So um, this is kinda lame, but my boys LOVE it!!



It's just euc sticks and a ball. I actually jammed it full of them, they were in there pretty tight.

But look at the mess they made with it! They managed to get a few out too. smile

My kids had lots of large bead type rattles and I recycle them into toys for Maxey. I'll add some fleece vines to them and makes swings, etc. He loves them! And it allows me to constantly change things up and have new things for him to play with!

Liezl,
I was looking through the past posts and saw pictures of the toy around and the forage around. Do you have instructions on how you did those? Is the toy around made with the pvc cable stuff and is that a hula hoop for the forage around? You are so creative. I'm not sure I can copy you fast enough grin

Go for it Leigh, but remember, for every copy, you owe me a picture of your creation. grin

The forage around is a hoola hoop yes :), for the toy around I used thick electric cord/cable, twisted it around a bottle to shape it, and covered it in fleece. thumb

It's actually a plastic ring type thing... It came from a Leap Frog toy and they were on the back to attach it to the kids Crib.. I figured it would work well!

You can always use a swim ring as well, I've done a similar toy, and it's great when you have several, with different length braids thumb

clap Great job

I made a post for hardware net toys but I guess I should posted here. Another reason to read first..LOL sorry but heres my new items for the babies..

So we built our 3 babies a new cage a few months (or more) back. I still had about half a roll of the net left. I was cleaning out the garage and the roll was taunting me. I kept hearing it say make me into something!! Well tonight I did! Here is my babies newest toys! Hope this gives others who hear the same call some ideas.

I have spent the last few days doing nothing but making sugar glider toys and cage sets. I seriously think someone needs to step in and take my toy making basket away from me...my kids are starting to complain all I do is make glider stuff smile
I need to figure out how to post a picture of all their new easter bunny collection of toys. I also made a cool ball pit for them where the balls shouldn't get thrown all over the cage. I'll take some pics and try to post them later tonight.

lilangels, nobody here is going to take away that toy making basket (unless they want to use it!) because we actually encourage glideritis! roflmao

If there was a cure, we wouldn't tell anyone! thumb

Now, where are the pics of those toys you made while ignoring your skin kids? roflmao

I totally just made my first toy!!! I used two green plastic shot glasses drilled 11-13 holes at the bottom of them. Took some relax and weeved it in and out of the holes. Tied it off and cut it. Then I drilled a hole on the top put some relax there for hanging. Then I took some black pony beads and put them inside and took a soldering gun and melted the 2 halfs of the glasses together! It looks so cute. I will post pictures later smile So happy I got my soldering gun and dremel piece kit today!!

I just made a pvc pipe tree for my gliders but i am wondering how some people made their pipe bend to look more like tree branches. Someone mentioned heating it but how do you heat it? All advice would be greatly appreciated. My 4 yr old has been playing with her newly sewn stuffed sugar glider on the new tree...hopefully my real babies will like it as much as the stuffed one does...lol!!!
