I'm delighted with this as I it is just what I want for my budgies.
It has to be assembled, so don't throw the picture of the final unit as there are no actual instructions. One of the wall pegs did not line up perfectly but a judicious tap persuaded it to fit together.
Most of the wood is natural covered in bark which I wanted to encourage my birds to chew on. The finish is a bit rough but fine for what I wanted.
It took me a couple of days to get my budgies to play on the gym but once they had

Rats love it!
A big hit with my 3 male rats, they love climbing and just hanging out on it when they're out of the cage. Is good quality, a decent size and a fab price. Will be buying another as this one is slowly getting nibbled!

Best buy ever
My cockatiels love this so much I'm buying another one, great place for them to hang out when out of the cage (great for beak cleaning and scratching too)

I can't believe how much my budgies love this playground! They spend hours pottering around on it and nibbling at the bark and ropes. You can add extra toys to the perches and put food or treats in the bottom. Great price for something that keeps them so well occupied.
A popular choice!
I bought this for my two budgies and two cockatiels. It wasn't long before they were climbing all over it. They adore nibbling the bark off. One of the cockatiels spends her afternoons dozing on one of the laddders and the budgies love to sit on the top and shout at the world. A lovely interactive toy all the birds enjoy.

Natural Living Playground
This Natural Living Playground for Parakeets is excellent. It is a great way to keep your bird amused. This is also great for Syrian Hamsters to chew on, which will stop their teeth from overgrowing and also to climb on. My bird and Syrian hamster love this.
The delivery service was excellent, ordered it Wednesday and got it Friday the same week.
Would certainly recommend.

i bought this playgym for my 2 budgies.
it took a few weeks for them to get used to it as they're a pair of fearties..lol..scared of strawberries as well..
now they love it..my hen likes to sprawl out on the ladder and go to sleep..while her boy guards her from the side.
it also comes in handy for destructive hens as well...she loves stripping the bark.
i also budgie sit for a friend and his 3 love it as well.zooplus is the only place i can get them and they are onto their second one.

My birdie loves this
Once my cockatiel got onto this she never now goes out of the cage without first visiting this playpen. I have it high up and its her favourite place now. Large enough to put feed in and change toys and great for her beak on the wood edges,the bits that came with it like the circle, rope ect are really not what interests her but i guess all birds are not the same. Excellent product for fee paid.
Good even for scaredy birds
My tiel loves her playground, we keep this in the kitchen for when she wants to spend time with us in there. This keeps her away from any cooking areas and well occupied while still feeling companionable.
She is a timid bird and disliked the swinging toys, but loves the playground itself, climbing all over it an chewing.

kids love it too!!

We bought this as our cockatiel is getting a bit old now and was depressed, sleeping most of the time. It has given her a new lease of life. She adores it. We thought it was a bit small for her (and it is for swinging etc)but she isn't interested in that. It is perfect for climbing up and giving good HARD pecks!! She is happily stripping the outer bark and really pecking the wood. She spends most of her day on it; we hung a seed bar and put some seeds mixed with shavings on the floor and she browses happliy all day. At night when we put it away she gets very very cross.The best toy I can think of. Thank you. If anyone has a bird get this toy and see your pet really happy.

I am really impressed with this toy. It is very solid and sturdy and my Budgies are going to have hours of fun stripping and chewing the bark and wood.

Great for Mice
My mice love climbing all over this toy. I also use it with extra ladders and they love it. highly reccomended for mice
For birds that chew!
My tiel loves to chew this as its made out of natural wood and she gets to strip the bark!.. I'd recommend this as a playground for budgies or destructive tiels!.. they will love it. Comes as flat packed, but easy to assemble.
