Rated 5 out of 5 by MaxiBird My Macaw Loves It
I buy one of these frequently. My macaw loves it. She only likes toys she can destroy so unfortunately they need replaced all the time. I don't mind though since she is middle aged and it keeps her happy along with her other toys.

What can I say about my blue and golds favorite toy except that when you find something your bird likes, your bird gets. These blocks can last him 3-10 days depending on how much he's in his cage. I add a stainless steel bell on it for him and he loves that too. My only complaint is that macaws know how to take the ring off the bottom of each chain to let the blocks all fall to the floor. I'm on to him tho, so I tie a small piece of rope to the last chainlink of each strand and that fixes the problem. Blocks and chains are easily reusable. Great toy. Love when it goes on sale.

*I have 3 large macaws and all of them absolutely love this toy!!!*
My Scarlet (7yrs)- will destroy it the fastest, however once he gets all the wooden beads/blocks off he will then spend a few days twirling the chain running under it like its rain and then slowly he starts to bust up the chains themselves squeeling with every link he turns into a foot toy.
My Military (18yrs) is much more gentle with her toys however once she gets into it - she demolishes it with great delight. If I can catch it in time, I will restring the chain with more blocks to extend the chewing fun. She does not destroy the chain like my Scarlet.
My Hybrid (6mos) takes much more time with this toy but I suspect it is because he is still a youngster and its a matter of time. This toy however is his favorite of all the toys offered up - and he has many to choose from.
There really is no con on this one at all, if it were more durable it would not be the same. The beauty in this toy is it is soft wood and they can destroy it in good fun. There is however the reality that once you hang it up, its on borrowed time! You can get clever with restringing to extend the use if your bird does not break up the chain - it dosent have to be just with wood blocks, Children's toy parts are great from the bargain bins at good will . You can also tie things into the chain -leather, fabric (old tee shirts) etc. I also try to buy this toy in bulk when on sale as every dollar saved can go to something else for the 'fids'.
For lasting durability - I highly recommend the pendulum toy for large macaws - its a must have staple in our home with the beakasaurus more of a 'treat' toy. You can only find that toy here online, its not in the catalog.
