I bought this toy for my Hahns macaw. It looked about the right size for him but it is actually quite a bit bigger. It would be a bit light weight for a big macaw like a blue and gold or a scarlet but I'd say it would be about prefect for a larger amazon or a cockatoo.
Would be a really nice toy for the right sized bird.
