Balsa Rumba for beaks that need an easy to shred toy

Balsa Rumba for beaks that need an easy to shred toy


Excellent for over preeners

Add Stainless Steel Quick Link:

:  at  £12.95  each

Balsa Rumba is designed, to be completely destroyed, with a Balsa toy base secured to a VT Leather Strap and then filled with even more balsa. Once demolished the strap can easily be refilled. 

3 colour combinations to choose from or tell us your own prefered 4 colour combo.

It is a great preening toy designed to keep little beaks busy but it may also work for those slightly bigger beaks that may need coaxing into play or have beaks that are not at full strength due to age or special needs.

As the balsa is all at the front and sides this toy can easily be adapted so that it can be further secured to the cage bars for birds with special needs or limited sight.  Just let us know and we will make 2 lengths of paper rope longer at the rear.

Made to order so please allow 14 working days for dispatch.

Stainless Steel Quick Link optional.

Approx Dimensions -  

Width:20cm - Please check size if intended for a small cage.

Materials -  VT Leather, Balsa, Birch, Natural Paper Rope

Suitable for - All,  but the bigger the beak the quicker it will be demolished.

We initially made 3 Rumbas for 3 Pionus. Binah Lu, a Dusky Headed, Ofoti a Maximillian (both living in the US and Kobe a  Blue-headed. While the  Pionus have excitedly got stuck into their new toys Kobe would rather just sit and admire his. Come on Kobe.
