    Look who has a new toy!

    Post by andrea on Wed Aug 13, 2014 10:14 am

    Last weekend we stopped by the pet store for more nutriberries (it's the treat Duck gets for going in his cage without biting when I have to leave the house), and they had a new line of toys (FunMax or MaxFun or something...wait apparently it's ZooMax) that included educational and foraging toys for smaller birds.  I was of course immediately distracted, seeing as I can usually only find these types of toys in Much Bigger Than Ducki size.  It took me 20 min to finally decide on what I considered a challenging foraging toy - a 'plunk' toy something like this http://www.zoo-max.com/508S%20Bird%20Plunk but clear and with only two levels.

    As always, I set it up so that he could test it out under supervision. Of course, with a nutriberry in it, he was quite motivated to 'solve' the puzzle.  Being Ducki, he also decided to solve it in his own unique way.  I think it's safe to say that this will be a 'supervision only' toy Giggle



    I think next time I might get one of the educational toys and teach Duck man shapes or colors or how to put a ring on a stick Smile

    He looks so pleased with himself! But yeah -- I can see him getting stuck in the toy during a moment of extreme concentration.  Giggle

    He's really quick now. He even impressed Mr Phil, who thought I was being a bit optimistic buying that sort of toy for Ducki Giggle

    Once they do it they don't forget. Now you need to get him something a little more complicated Giggle

    any suggestions? It's so hard to find something size-appropriate.
