Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Living World Budgie Buddie Budgie Toy (Colours May Vary) (Misc.)
I bought this toy for my lovebird, which while not a budgie is pretty much the same size. I didn't find the motion sensor too sensitive unlike some of the other reviewers. Walking past the cage didn't result in furious chirping! Perhaps this is because my lovebird lives in a large (6 foot tall) cage which has thick, strong bars. This budgie buddie was just sensitive enough to activate the chirping when the lovebird approached it. All birds are different and my lovebird certainly wasn't fooled into believing this was anything but a plastic toy and this toy was pretty much shunned from the moment it entered the cage. The chirping isn't 100% realistic but then how do you make a plastic toy sound exactly like a real bird? I think it looks good and is very well made and strong. The weight at the bottom means it stays upright as well. This is certainly better than a lot of toys you can buy.
