Yeah, all the birds I know love bells. My friend's bird has a mirror. She loves to look at herself, and the mirror has beads on it that she plays with. Chew toys could work for some birds, I think.

You will always be my best friend, .

ropes to climb on,swings.
treat cups that hide food,so the bird has to work for it's treat.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

They make puzzles that that if the bird solves the puzzle it gets a treat.

hey
umm i don't know if you know this or not(forgive me if you do)
some parrots especially african greys can be vary wary of new toys,
introduce them slowly and carefully,if possible show the birds first what you are
considering giving them.

You can make a swing for them and the mirrors also could help. They sometimes start pricking the mirrors.
