I ordered these are they okay?
I’m not familiar on what perch diameters are good for green cheeks but I think I was told variety is best
I also picked up these from petco
Should I get a couple with thicker diameters?
any other perches you guys think I should get?

Those look great!
I would also encourage some thicker ones, thinner ones and flat ones- just to get a nice variety in there.
Plus ones with bark or softer woods to keep them nice and enriched :)

My green cheek I used anything from 1/2" to 2". A variety in both diameter and texture is good to prevent pressure sores, arthritis, and bumble foot!

Sisal rope boings are a massive favourite with all my birds too like @Zara says it makes a brilliant ladder to all of cage area from top to bottom

okay cool! I ordered a pretty basic corner flat perch from Amazon,
I have a ton of thicker manzanita (1-2”) that I had left over from making my cockatoo perches so I may just make him a couple thicker!
I also ordered a natural rope ladder
I’ve made around 6 toys for her, all decently large (picture of a couple)
But I wanted to get one of these too and I’m wondering what design would be best since they’re all about the same price?
(Could I ask if making a few smaller toys would do good?)
And then one last thing
Opinions on getting a corner seagrass mat like this? (To use flat kind of like a perch?)

I like the trio one. The swing one can be potentially dangerous once the kebobs have been shredded off and raw string is exposed (can get tanlged in).

You can. Just keep in mind that it might get shredded :)

I love the toys you made! I am sure your bird will enjoy them. A little advice; hold the toy upside down and tie the knot closer to the bottom vine balls so that when they are put upright again, there is no string exposed (again, tangle hazard). As you spot parts being torn off, you can shorten the string from the bottom, saving you having to re-do the whole toy.
