All Living Things® Bird Activity Center
This is the third one of these that I have purchased(for big bird) and it is the most that I've paid for one. The first two had a thick particle board bottom in them that had fairly deep holes to put the dowels into. Run a few screws up through the bottom into the dowels and they stayed together pretty well. This new one has a thin piece of warped wood covered in plastic shelving material while the old ones used a Formica type surface. the swing that used to be made with three dowels has also been cheapened. I see no hope in holding the new one together as they have cheapened bottom board. The dowel holes are very shallow. I'll figure something else out. This one goes back to Pets-mart in the morning. I am very disappointed in this new sub-standard version.

Keeps Them Happy
Mine looks a tad different than what is shown. I guess I have the upgraded version. It was a whim buy. I wanted my boys to have something to play on/with while they were out of their cage. First day I put it on top of their cage, they avoided it was the enemy. So I placed a snack for them on top and in it. Took about another day before they felt comfortable enough to try it out. Now they're constantly on it. They love to perch. I fixed it to a way that they'ed have fun with it. It's trial and error. Recently they like to lift the ladder up and drop it down. Also they decided that the ladder can be used to move up and down on or perch on it. They don't like the bead string thing, but maybe they just need more time.

Great for smaller birds
We bought one of these for our parrotlet and it took him a few days before he really started to play on it, but once he got used to it, he loved it and would play on it for hours at a time. we did find it was a bit fragile, but with a few extra wood screws in the right places it became a lot safer for the birds and a lot less fragile. What's nice about it is there are a few hooks where you can remove the swing and replace it with different toys to keep the birds from getting bored with it.

not as advertised
It's quite flimsy. The toys it describes aren't included, such as the toy sliding on the rope.
Definitely not for cockatiels and even too small for parakeets.
Don't bother with this one.
