About Us ~
The mission of Bizzy Birdy Playthings is to provide your avian companions with unique toys that are safe, interesting and affordable.

Let me introduce myself...my name is Barry Schneider, and I have been owned by parrots for about twelve years now.  Originally, I began making toys for my own birds...even though I only had three back then, I quickly became aware of the constant need parrot owners face in finding quality toys for their birds.  It didn't take long for both my birds and myself to tire of the same old toys that were available, so I started making toys for my crew using common household items.  Their interest in simple things led me to try an ever expanding array of toy components.  Eventually some of my toys found their way into the homes of friends who also had parrots.  Their reception was positive and I was encouraged to make more...


I officially started Bizzy Birdy Playthings in November 2002.  I debuted about 25 of my initial designs at the Rocky Mountain Society of Aviculture November Bird Show and Mart in Denver, CO.  The positive reaction to these initial toys led me to design and create an ever expanding catalog of toys...

My research and development crew has been as high as 18 birds that ranged in size from Parrotlet through Green Winged Macaw.  I am continually amazed at each bird's different desires over and above species specific standards.  It is a constant challenge to please them all, so I see no end in sight for new designs...

Personally, I believe toys are a true necessity rather than a luxury for our feathered companions.  Environment enrichment plays a major role in keeping our birds happy and healthy...keeping their environments fresh and new is a constant goal.  Honestly, the total destruction of a toy is a true sign of success to me...

Unfortunately, no toy or toy part can be truly considered "bird safe"!  Each bird's personality, preferences and behaviors must be taken into consideration when selecting toys for their enjoyment.  Even if you are very familiar with your birds' habits, I strongly recommend caution when introducing new toys to them.  It is very important to select toys that are size and species appropriate.  I also recommend that no new toy is placed inside a bird's cage until you are "reasonably sure" it is a "safe" toy for them to have unsupervised access to.  I make every effort to utilize the best "bird safe" materials I can find in the construction of Bizzy Birdy Playthings.  It is my hope that you and your avian companions enjoy them safely...
