Why Are "Scooter World" Toys Different? by General

Scooter World Toys are a Parrot Island exclusive and are individually handmade by Shari Beaudoin. Shari's outstanding designs have quickly become our best selling toys. Customers are literally waiting for her next group of toys to arrive at the store. Shari's designs show an understanding of what birds prefer that you will find in few toy companies. Scooter World Toys are made of 100% safe materials including vegetable tanned leather, naturally dyed wood, safe plastic and marbella beads and stainless steel quick links. Because they are all individually handmade these toys can sometimes vary slightly in design from those pictured -- but never in any way that would make them less interesting to your companion bird. Also, be sure to check back as the toys offered by Scooter World will change regularly.

While visiting Parrot Island in April of 2000 (presenting one of her wonderful seminars), Sally Blanchard of the Companion Parrot Quarterly (fka --Pet Bird Report) let us know how much she loved Shari's toy designs. This was truly high praise as Sally is sent a great amount of toys to test and give her opinions on each year. She 'had' to get one of the small ' Hide & Play' Balls for Spike - her famous Black Capped Caique. Sally's write up of both her 2000 visit to Parrot Island and Scooter World Toys is located in Issue #47 of The Pet Bird Report (recently retitled Companion Parrot Quarterly) on pages 88 ('A Terrific Minnesota Trip') and 90 (The Product Review Page). She also was very impressed (enough to take many back with her to California during her visits in 2002 (at the National Companion Parrot Quarterly Convention held here in Minnesota), and again in 2003 when she came out for our new location's Grand Opening! She most recently has a write up in Issue #65 (Fall 2004) in (The Product Review Section ).

Customer Comments on Scooter World Toys:

Hi Shari & Terry,
I received the order. Everything is great-my birds are happy! Quigley loves his new toys (Scooter Wold Disc Curly-Q, Medium Scooter World Zig Zag Ladder Toy) as well. He likes to wrestle with it-it's pretty funny.

Hi Shari & Terry,
I'm looking forward to receiving everything. I love your products (and, more importantly, so do our birds!). (Victioria has ordered the Medium Scooter World Zig Zag Ladder Toy, Scooter World Spring-A-Ma-Jig: Size Tiny, Scooter World Hide & Play Ball: Small AND a Large Hide & Play Ball as well!)

Hi Terry, I received both packages and everything arrived in perfect condition. My quaker's cage is just as beautiful as my Timneh's and Jardine's cages. Tell Shari she does a fabulous job with the Scooter World Toys. I'm sure my birds are going to love the ones you chose for them. (Yvonne purchased a Scooter World Propeller Curl, a Scooter World Medium Trapeze, a Scooter World Spidey Toy, a Scooter World Whiffle Squishee Toy, a Scooter World Dinosaurs and Letters, a Scooter World Chew-riffic, a Scooter World Boomerang, a Scooter World Whiffle Wonder, and a Scooter World Grapevine Hoop toy.) It's hard to find the type of toys my birds like, but these are perfect for them. Thank-you so much for the wonderful service. I appreciate you getting the small cage done early. It will give me a chance to get the quaker to adjust to it before our trip. I'll be sure to come back to your site to order more toys and anything else we might need for the parrots.
Take Care and thank-you again,
Yvonne B., MI

Terry & Shari, First, I would like to say thanks for the prompt delivery. My two birds are already enjoying many of the items that arrived in the mail. Skittles, my Jenday Conure, is still trying to figure the whole thing out, but he's obviously enjoying the challenge! I received the Large Scooter World Zig Zag Ladder last week, and it was in great shape....I've never seen so much bubble wrap in my life ;-)
Thanks,
Patrice S., VA
