Rings Game Medium
great activity for parrots
This game is great for keeping a bird's mind stimulated and also for object manipulation. My parrot has yet to learn it, but has fun picking up the rings and dropping them. Good value for the money also.

Great little toy
The size I bought is perfect for parakeets and budgies. It's lightweight yet solidly made. The rings are bright, stimulating colors of red, yellow, green, and blue. One concern I have is that it would be hard for a little bird to get a good grip on the rings because there's almost no give between the hole in the middle of the ring and the post. One of the posts on mine has a rough edge on top, but that shouldn't be a problem.
What IS a problem is that I have two neurotic parakeets, who took one look at this colorful Eldritch abomination and bolted from their cage as if their tails were on fire. They circled the room until they were tired, then landed on top of their cage. One of them has a respiratory problem, and he was panting and holding his wings out in that, "Don't mess with me!" posture. The other one beat a hasty retreat to the far back corner of the cage and fell down between the cage and the wall. No injuries. That was 5 days ago. I've shown them how it works--taking rings off, putting rings on, playing with the rings. I tried just leaving the rings on the bottom of the cage so they could do as they wished. They look on in abject horror. So far, all they've done with this toy is poop on it.
That's pretty much what they do with every toy. But normal birds should love this ring toy.
