As owner of a bird you certainly want to give your little feathery friend more freedom for moving around, for flying and for playing than he has in his cage. In this case a bird playground that you can place on the table top is a great idea – for your enjoyment and for your bird‘s fun.
One important point you have to consider before choosing a bird playground is the size of it. It needs to match your bird‘s size and should always be on the bigger side.
The available bird playground models are all made of non-toxic materials and colors that‘s very important since your bird probably will spend a lot of fun time in it. They all come with different details such as perch, ladder and toys. Of course you can always add your bird‘s own toys to it – and also replace his toys with new ones to keep your bird interested and curious.
Adding your bird‘s own toys is one way how you can encourage your little feathery friend to take over this new playground and explore every detail of it. It also helps to lure him with his favorite treat. Some models come with food and water dishes. It‘s easier for a bird to accept a new place when he recognizes the scents, treats and toys as his own.
A playground always has two purposes. One is activating the playful character of birds by offering different toys, sitting and playing places. The other is to encourage the bird‘s need for exercise. Both keep your bird healthy and happy.
And I‘m even not speaking about your own enjoyment while watching your little friend playing joyfully around. Having your bird near you on a playground that you can move around in your home as you wish is just perfect for both of you.

I bought this play gym for my Meyer’s parrot, Buster Brown. I’m really glad I got this. My bird is having a great time checking out the gym and new toys. It took me less than 5 minutes to put the gym together. I would definitely recommend this gym to anyone who has a similar size bird.
Really neat and fun for my conure. Easy to build and clean. Top quality and beats out any cheap petstore play gym.
The play stand is extremely fun for birds. My conure took one look at it and latched onto the toys to start a game of tug o’ war. It’ll certainly create a lot of fun in the future for her to keep her amused. So far my green cheek conure is having the time of her life.

Penn Plax Wood Bird Playpen
- Full-loaded activity center for birds
- Features rope perches, ladders, swings, bells and toys
- Large size, also available as medium and extra large
I got the XL. It is a little big for my parakeet but she still has a good time. All in all it is a good amount of play space for medium to small size birds. The pen is sturdy. It is also easy to clean off. All in all I’m happy with the product and it’s easy to customize based on what your bird likes. Also my bird is happy too.
For my purposes I could not be more pleased. Easily cleaned also. It’s structurally sound if directions are followed, and it’s easy enough to add your very own stuff to make it customized to your bird’s likes and dislikes if you so choose. Great purchase. I couldn’t be happier.
We recently rescued 2 Budgies. They seem so much happier now that they have a playground. The instructions were simple and it took less than 10 minutes to put together. Overall I would buy it again in a heartbeat. It’s worth it.
