    1. A punching bag toy that's a great way to encourage your pet to get out some of their excess energy. It has a shiny mirror to attract their attention and the bag holds a bell that will set off a gratifying ring each time it's shaken.

    Promising review: "My parakeet LOVES this toy! It's his favorite. And when it's time to go to bed, he'll sit and snuggle next to it. If he's off doing something else, the Pineapple Green Cheek and the Cockatiel will go over and play with it. But not like the parakeet....he gives it a beating for 30 minutes at a time." —Dandy

    Price: $3.88

    2. A small bell bird toy for the bird who appreciates all the sensory appeals that the world has to offer. It gives your favorite little friend the opportunity to play and enjoy the sounds that come from their new favorite toy.

    Promising review: "My budgie Scuttle loves this bell! He rings it by pulling on the chain with his foot. He also sings to it. It's a winner." —Margaret D.

    Price: $3.88

    3. A hol-ee roller bird toy because giving your bird something to climb on is never a bad move. If there's one thing we know about birds, it's that they're curious creatures who want to crawl around as much as they want to squawk and sing.

    Promising review: "Reinforced the bell with another thin clip. She realized it was easier to detach the bell so now that it’s back on, and sturdier than ever, it gets hours of attention. Obviously don’t buy this for anything bigger than a Grey. My Blue Fronted Amazon can keep it around for a while. Every few months I blow hundreds at the toy store and frankly, she gives all those toys less attention than this cheap bell toy, kinda frustrating but I’m glad she’s happy." —Anna N

    Price: $6.74

    4. A natural toy so your pet can get all that chewing out of their system before you let them onto your shoulder. Say goodbye to miscellaneous holes in your shirt and let them wreak havoc on this toy instead.

    Promising review: "This toy is great quality, I love that it seems to be entirely natural material, and these little wicker balls are often a favorite of my two budgies. They happen not to have paid it much attention yet, but when they do, I think it will be a hit." —cmosier

    Price: $3.64

    5. A tabletop toy that's a fun and stimulating way for your bird to pick up a new trick and maybe even turn it into a hobby. Birds are incredibly smart and giving them positive ways to channel this intelligence will definitely lend itself to less mischief later.

    Promising review: "Love it. Super easy to assemble, came with all the hardware I needed including the screwdriver. No off-putting chemical smells and everything seems sturdy enough that he’d have to be trying to break it. I’ll definitely be using this brand of bird toy again!" —Morgan

    Price: $6.99+ (available in three variations)

    6. A rope toy for the bird who likes to be in the highest of spaces all the time. It's like a little bridge for your pet and chances are (if hung vertically) they'll be hanging off the top for most of the day.

    Promising review: "I just put my budgies in a new cage with new accessories, and this rope ladder is the first thing that they've shown interest in. It makes a nice addition to their environment." —Pamela M-L

    Price: $6.83+ (available in 10 styles)

    7. A treat skewer because there's never a bad way to give your pet a treat. It's portable and truly a choose your own adventure kind of toy because you get to add your pet's personal favorites and let them enjoy it all day long.

    Promising review: "Perfect for my baby sun conure. He’s still getting used to eating larger portions of fresh fruit and veggies. With this he doesn’t have to worry about dropping it! He loves it... blueberries and cherries are his favorite!" —Amazon Customer

    Price: $8.95 (available in three styles and two colors)

    8. A pet drinking fountain so your favorite little friend can give themselves a bath or have a little drink of water all on their own terms. Plus, it has moving water so it will be exciting for them, too.

    Promising review: "My bird has never been happier. He loves playing in the water and bathing himself in this fountain. It was easy to set up and is easy to clean." —Jason Bory

    Price: $29.99

    9. A millet spray that is a tasty way to encourage your pet to engage in playtime. Just because birds aren't notorious for being the most cuddly of pets doesn't mean they don't appreciate a little TLC in the form of treats, which this snack is sure to provide.

    Promising review: "I'm using this to tame my budgies. These little guys had been scared of me since I got them and I couldn't get them to trust me till I got this. Definitely buying it again when it's gone." —Soneeuhz

    Price: $4.99

    10. A set of four bird perches for the bird who likes to change it up and gets as much excitement from new toys as you do. It's a great way to encourage your pet to get their play time in and since it comes with four perches, replacing them is incredibly easy.

    Promising review: "Better than other reviews might have you believe! Got these shelves because one of my rats is too heavy for regular lava ledges and these already feel a lot sturdier when attached to the cage. The thin perches are a nice bonus, but they do wiggle." —Peaches

    Price: $10.99

    11. A bird bath accessory because this little extension will give your bird the illusion that they're playing in a birdbath all of their own. It will encourage your bird to come out of their cage (literally) and explore new territories.

    Promising review: "My baby loves it!!" —Son C

    Price: $10.95

    12. A lightweight bird carrier so your bird can experience the outside world. It has air holes and a clear, protective encasement so your favorite friend can enjoy the beautiful weather while staying safe and without risk of escaping.

    Promising review: "I like it. The size is very spacious for my green-cheeked conure. Well ventilated and lightweight. Installation is also quick and easy, can assembled/disassembled in one minute. The cage is beautiful too. Thank you." —Pekkle__duck

    Price: $36.96+ (available in two sizes and two colors)

    13. A bird hammock bed that will keep your bird cozy all winter long. We aren't the only ones that get cold when the seasons change and it's important to make sure your bird's temperature stays consistent for their health, so this is a real lifesaver.

    Promising review: "It's beyond freaking cute! The bottom pad has a thin plastic insert it has a velcro on one end of the pad to remove the plastic could take it completely apart to wash. It is made of a canvas material. And the pop-up/structure boning is similar to that of a "kite boning" so possibly replaceable if necessary or eaten. And it folds completely flat scared the crap out of me when I opened it just popped up lol. Big enough to fit two Quaker parrots I absolutely love it I hope my bird warms up to it soon 😊. Would recommend." —Jackie R.

    Price: $13.49

    14. A styptic powder for protecting against cuts when trimming your bird's claws. If you've ever tried this at home, you already know why this product is the MVP.

    Promising review: "I have this bleeding stop ready when I cut my dogs' nails (two Bichons). The Remedy and Recovery stops the bleeding quickly. It is like applying a bandage to a child's cut, it calms the dogs down (a little) when they are upset/bleeding. I have a couple of WET Q-tips ready when cutting the dogs' nails. Great product packaging. The Remedy and Recovery comes in a good-sized container, that is easy to open and close. Great product that works, at a good price." —Edward Sayers

    Price: $9.34

    15. A two-pack of feeding cups with clamps because there's no better way to keep your bird fed and happy than implementing a minimal clean-up food tray. Plus, if your bird is a messy eater, the rest of their food will just fall to the bottom of the tray so cleanup is super simple.

    Promising review: "Great bowls! Our old stainless-steel ones needed replacing and I thought we'd try these out. We have Canary Winged Parakeets (a tad smaller than a conure) and the bowls work great for them! The smaller of the two we use for food and the bigger we use for water, which they end up dunking their food in or taking a bath. Please ignore the messy bowls and cage after their breakfast XD. Would definitely recommend." —Hannah

    Price: $13.99

    16. A mini Christmas tree so even your pets can get into the holiday spirit. It's never too early to put up the tree and this one will hardly take up any space at all.

    Promising review: "Looks cute, but be aware it was very easy for my parakeets to completely shred the tree apart within two days. I guess they don't appreciate Christmas decorations in October..." —Steven Phillips

    Price: $7.62

    17. A pet food storage container that is perfect for keeping your bird's food fresh and well stored. It's slim so it can fit in small spaces and comes with a measuring cup so you can be sure your pet is getting the right amount of food.

    Promising review: "Perfect for a small bag of cat food. I can only fit a 2.5-lb bag of food in here which is fine. The lid seals on tight and the container is nice and sturdy. I love the measuring cup that comes on top. We will be ordering more of these to use around the house for rice, sugar, flour etc." —Whitney

    Price: $9.89 (available in five colors)

    18. A 2-pound thing of essential bird feed for the bird owner who likes to be prepared with excess food, that way you won't have to be worried about running out at any given moment.

    Promising review: "Our two guys love this blend. Took them a while to try the bigger seeds in the mix, now they seem to go for them first." —Larry

    Price: $12.49

    19. A birdcage cleaner because your bird will love the feeling of a clean cage. It's a great way to ensure that your bird stays healthy and doesn't end up eating any of their (excuse my language) own waste.

    Promising review: "I love my two lovebirds, but boy can they mess their cage. I power wash the cage monthly but that's not enough, it needs a weekly wipe down. I ordered this product immediately when it was offered to me at a discounted price for my unbiased review. I know chemical cleaners can be dangerous to the bird's health. Soap and hot water just doesn't work on hard bird poop. This spray is amazing. I followed the directions and let it soak into the old poop then did a wipe-down. Some areas needed a second spraying but that was it. The spray has a very nice clean scent and leaves no residue behind. I'm beyond happy with this product and highly recommend it." —Barbara Wallace

    Price: $12.95

    20. A three-pack of birdcage cleaning brushes so you can make your life a whole lot easier by having the proper tools to do a heavy-duty clean. It's perfect for all kinds of cages and makes cleaning as easy as possible.

    Promising review: "I purchased these to help me clean my bird's cage. They worked just like I hoped they would. They remove the debris so all that's needed is just a wipe down without having to scrub. I have no idea what their actually supposed to be used for but they sure make cleaning the birdcage a whole lot easier." —Elizabeth A. Hall

    Price: $10.99

    21. A bird swing that will give your birds the necessary entertainment to keep them busy all day long. Plus, it helps prevent overgrown toenails so it's a great way to keep them in good health.

    reviewer photo of the bird swing made of rope in pink and white

    Promising review: "This is a great addition to our out-of-cage play time. I wouldn't offer it to a bird larger than a cockatiel because the outer material is just wound around the rings. I love that the rings are hung by a...what appears to be a clothes hanger type hook. And there is a solid bar across the top to keep it stable. I'd buy it again." —K Cotton

    Price: $10.29 (available in two sizes)
