I was hesitant about this item at first as it is made of plastic, it didnt look very sturdy from the pictures. Thanks to the people who answered my question (mcchick & michelle), i went ahead to place an order for one and i am glad i did. This is THE best play gym / play area i have been able to find. I have bought several wooden ones which were all crap. This is sturdy, every component is very sturdy, when you set it up, all the items "click" together. I let four of my baby lovies on it and although it is a little cramped, it definitely supports all four of them very well. They explored every single thing on the playgym within the first few minutes. At just $16.99, it is worth every penny i paid. I would recommend it to anyone with small birds like lovies, parakeets or parrotlets. Do note that it is not suitable for a tiel.
The only thing i would change about this toy is the perch on the top, it is made of a very thin plastic which doesnt seem too comfortable for...
It's sad that this great toy has so few reviews! I bought this for my 3 budgies, one of who is obsessed with banging around quick links against the cage bars. I thought she might enjoy the barbell and that I could train them to do the basketball trick. True to the other reviews on there, when this item arrived it was made of very stiff/sturdy plastic. There was a note inside that said that pieces were manufactured to be especially tight and I almost hurt a finger trying to put this together... Finally I used a screwdriver to leverage the tabs into the correct slots and all was forgiven, because my birds loved this!
Also, I should mention that there were instructions on which parts to assemble first/in what order. I didn't put them together in the right order, so there were times when I had to squeeze my arm around something to assemble something else. There was a lot of twisting and I was afraid I would snap the pieces in my hand, but oddly, it bent and bent, and never...
The setup was very easy but it didn't feel very sturdy. I have 2 parakeets and they normally love any toys/playgrounds I give them but they were scared to DEATH of this thing. I tried to put them on the perch, they flew away. I tried showing them how to play with it, they flew away. I tried taking some pieces off so it didn't look intimidating, they flew away. They just HATED it. And I think I got a used one which didn't bother me but I know some people are very particular about these things. Side note: If my parakeets did like it, the playground could easily hold them both at once.
