Yes that's one of his favorites! And I like it because it's easy to clean :) Some are downright awful to clean out!

These two. The Push N Pull is more like a "shake it until things fall out" :lol:

Both of these though are hard to fill and clean so I don't use them anymore.

The Tumbler I just fill with soapy water and shake it like a martini. Straw brushes to get anything I missed :)

Push N Pull definitely not worth it.

I'm surprised about the wheel! My green cheek and Quakers also loved that one. The big green one though no one likes.

Was only pico who liked the wheel I’ve only just put it back up to play with as I hated seeing it untouched

Gosh that second one is huge lol. Bought one for Rupert. He can manage it, but he’s kind of a brute force kinda forager. Shake it and sling it, hope for the sound of treats dropping.

Burt is the king of foraging here- he even finds awesome things that were not ever hidden for him to find :roflmao:

Burt works out all the forage toys pretty fast- starts by simply trying to bust his way in with brute force then if he cant he will actually put the effort into using the forager correctly so we can really only use the metal ones or the blocks of wood with holes drilled in for food bits otherwise they are an expensive one off play toy which is frustrating as I am constantly trying to come up with new ways for him to be able to forage.

Birdie is still getting there with everything including foraging (one legged baby steps for Birdie lol) so hopefully within a few more months I can pass down all the foraging toys I bought for Burt that are not metal, Birdie actually foraged and chewed a coloured toy for the first time a few weeks back so I will keep making it easy for him and hope he continues to enjoy finding treats in his toy that some idiot put right in his way lol
