When I stumbled upon this toys years ago - I knew I hit on a treasure!
This toy has both soft (Pine Imo) wood for easy chewing and hard wood (manzanita Imo) to offer a chewing challenge.. plus its put together on sisal rope ties (good for preening behavior) and chain. The description also says cotton - I have never had cotton rope in the years I have ordered this toy and I pray I never will because that would kill the longevity of this toy for certain.
This toy is hung in our outdoor aviary (see pictures - I extend the chain, it gets wet and still keeps on going however the colors do fade outside), indoor bird room and all the birds cages - it is that good!!! My birds love to chew on it - swing from it, camp out on the highest peak of it and it lasts months - yes MONTHS! When I retire one of these toys there is nothing but the 2 main center blocks left and some bits of shredded sisal rope.
The Pendulum is worth its weight in gold to me...my birds could send me to the poorhouse with their toy appetite. Its very large, its lasts forever and be warned it is heavy heavy heavy. When I put a new one up all the birds will fly on me and I have to use both hands to hang it as I am weighted down!
This toy is our main staple toy - in between offering fresh branches and handmade recycled toys/toy parts. Anyone with large macaws needs to have this toy, you will be very satisfied.
Our birds also love the beakasaurus which is a toy of awesome but short-lived destructible fun. I highly recommend for all the big birds even if you can only splurge a once or twice a year for one.

It takes my Blue and Gold Macaw about 3-4 weeks toy destroy this toy. Most toys last less than a week but this one uses bigger blocks that helps it last. it is heavy and long but my Macaw gets excited when he sees a new one. Must have for big birds!!!
