I love shopping for cool toys
for my girls <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/littleglider.gif" alt="" />
I went out to Dollar Tree and Big Lots and found lotsa goodies! I found shower curtain rings, and attached them together to make a ladder. I would make sure they are hard plastic so they can't chew on them, and that they are large enough so your gliders won't get stuck in them. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
I found Barrel o' Monkeys at Dollar Tree, and my girls just love em! I also found fluffy sparkly-balls (for crafts) that are big enough that my gliders won't try choking them down. I only use the sparkly-balls for tent time though...
Feathers are a great cheap toy! I have a large white undyed feather that is a big hit here <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/party.gif" alt="" />
If you can find any tiny stuffed toys
(that aren't beanie babies, have no loose threads or threads that may come loose) it's sooooo cute to see your suggies all curled up hugging them. lol Or you might see them attacking and trying to protect you from the vicious stuffed animals! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/roflmao.gif" alt="" />
You can always try making the no-sew pouches
, and maybe try making no-sew tunnels?
If you take three long strips of fleece and braid them together, you can attach clips on one end and hang it from the ceiling for a fun rope/swing!
There are so many things that can be fun for your gliders! I just wouldn't ever use cat toys
. I found these adorable little balls, and it didn't say anything on the tag about catnip. This was before I got my gliders---I was worried that possibly there might be some catnip hidden in there, so I tore one apart, and sure enought there was a bunch in there! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" /> I immediately threw them all right in the trash, and vowed never to take a chance again! Catnip is deadly to gliders, and some companies will spray liquid catnip on so you have to be careful. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/worried2.gif" alt="" />
If you want a neat look, you can use plastic vines---BUT make sure they have no wire in them. Usually if they bend and stay bent they have wire in them. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" /> I know that gliderdaydreams.com has them but I think they might be out of stock....I really want to use some too!
I have feathered boas, and its so cute to see my two chasing them around and trying to latch onto it! lol <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/roflmao.gif" alt="" /> I only use mine for tent time <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
Happy hunting for neat toys
! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/yelclap.gif" alt="" /> And good luck with your suggies! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/party.gif" alt="" />
