“Why my bird need toys?” Toys should be plentiful and alternated. Toys are what will occupy the bird through the largest part of the day while the owners are gone. Check the toys daily for damage. Rotating the toys every several days to a week will help keep the bird interested in the toys. A bored bird is at high risk for behavioral and health problems. Finding toys that are favorites will entail trial and error. Try a wide variety as long as they are safe. Locate the toys where they are easily accessible to the bird, e.g., at the end of perches. Foraging toys require birds to work for their food, giving much-needed mental stimulation, and providing a way of feeding that more closely resembles what the bird would do in the wild.
“How should I place the Perch?” When placing perches, locate one by the food and water dishes, one by the toys, and the concrete perch elsewhere in the cage for grooming. Do not inhibit bird movement or cause damage to the feathers as the bird moves around the cage. Perches should be placed so the bird’s tail will not touch the side of the cage when the bird is sitting on the perch. Avoid placing perches directly over food and water dishes.
“Cleaning and Maintenance tips” For your pets own safety, we recommend you to clean the toys once per week. For the wood products, brush them with vinegar and water mix (1 cup of white vinegar with 1 gallon of water), some natural branches and cement perches can be more difficult to clean since they have more crevices. Wire brushes can be used to clean soiled areas, and then the perch can be disinfected as described above. Allow to dry in the sun thoroughly before they are placed back in the cage. Avoid scented disinfectants and those containing pine oils. Plastic toys can be cleaned with soft bristle toothbrush; if heavily soiled, they too can be disinfected, rinsed, and dried. Rope, clothesline, and cloth can be washed, or simply replaced.

Developed by educationists Boris and Elena Nikitin. They raised their seven children in believing firmly in the natural ability to learn and adjust to environments. They transformed their home into play and learning environments and developed highly intelligent learning materials – “Build Up Games”. Children need support in learning…specially with perception, concentration and creativity. These 16 wooden cubes with six differently coloured surfaces provide fun training in recognizing and combining colours and shapes. The idea is to put the coloured surfaces together to reproduce patterns ranging from simple to complex.
Two booklets full of attractive designs lead children up from easier to harder ones. Both the booklets contain patterns for all ages: the complicated patterns can be an exciting challgenge for adults too. Nikitin Materials – Build Up Games, were designed to help children to reveal their abilities and develop their personalities, sense of perception and concentration training.An important aspect is gradual increase in diffuculty. Children progress from the simple to the harder each time, setting their own individual paces. These materials are suitable for use by children as young as 3+ up to adulthood. They are used for some time with great success by large numbers of preschools and primary schools, and therapists. These sets are widely used in for left-right brain training purposes.
Nikitin materials provide the chance for children (and adults): • to discover their latent talents, • to develop sense perception, • to train concentration, • to do concrete task, • to be creative, • to enjoy continual minor successes, • to learn independently through play, • to develop an understanding of numbers.
