I make lots of toys for my crew that are very simple! I stuff fleece scraps inside the large whiffle balls and hang them with plastic chain and I also thread straws or feathers in there too. I have frisbees with holes punched at 3 spots and hang it with plastic chain and then add a fleece blankie. They use it as a landing pad or a jump off point and even sometimes are happy to spin around on it! Then I have the busy bridge which is just landware cloth with fleece strips woven thru it. It hangs with plastic chain and can have all kinds of things attaced to it, like monkeys, bells, straws, feathers, mini mugs, baby keys, etc.

Sweet! sounds awesome AND safe! Great job!

Patricia! blush AWESOME! I love the instructions on your flower shot glass! dance I'm so going to try that. smile

Tracy, I totally know what you mean about "some I hate to make anymore and some I really enjoy". I TOTALLY hate making some of my toys. I'd feel bad if I stopped and some poor glider didn't get one though. LOL

I LOVE the sound of the ballpits at night. heart Those little wiffle balls dinking off each other and the gliders chirping when they find the hidden mealies! grin

Each cage has to have two things. A wheel and a ball pit. Absolutely a have to! You would not believe how many times I catch them sleeping in their ball pits!

The big dishes with balls were amazing simple to make! A big bowl from Dollar tree, straws, beads, craftlace and balls!

I like to cut tiny squares of fleece (like 1" x 1") to put into the ballpits to give them something to cuddle with when they do sleep in there. tounge LOL it's like confetti!

Mine don't mind at all. How they can sleep in there, I'll never know. I think ball pits and braids are the easiest toys to make, at least for me.

Well, it depends on how full you want it but those have 4-5 packages with about a dozen balls in each. LOL!

This may not look like much but Kicko loves hiding in it to eat his yogies. I wish I was as creative as some of you are.

Connie, your second pic down with the set of 3 wavy, green bowls - I love it! I saw that set when I was shopping on Saturday and said to Chelsea "I bet someone could make a really cute toy out of these, but I don't know what to do with them." Now I'm wishing I'd bought them!

Amanda, I haven't picked up a crochet hook in years! LOL! Looking at your awesome toys tempts me to get back into the habit. Are the crochet toys safe for the gliders? They won't get stuck in the "holes"? Do you use a specific yarn?

**I am full of questions** tounge

Crocheted toys are made with fleece that's been cut into strips. I don't know how wide the strips are that Amanda uses for her toys. I have to say, all I can do is a basic "daisy chain", and I love the effect it gives to the toys I make. But Amanda took the basic concept and took it to AMAZING heights clap I have some of her toys - recently she made a squirrel pouch for my gliders that is just incredible!!! They are all definitely glider safe! The fleece is so tightly crocheted that you don't have holes for them to get their feet caught in thumb
