OK guys, our of interest what are the longest lasting toys you've found in terms of destructible toys?

Mine so far has been the java double tower climbing frames. Although one of my zons has now managed to chew through the wood at the top so it's going to need replacing soon 🤣🤣🤣

But what toys have you guys found that seem to last a bit longer than 15 minutes?

Those monkey face ones?
I also get those that are the entire outer husk with just a section cut out with toys stuffed inside.
Those half ones don't last too long with the ammie boys.

Yeah he likes the money faces one.

My others have either the middle section ones with the stuff in the middle - so descriptive 🤣🤣🤣

Or the whole ones that have a v shape out the front with stuff in the middle.

Luna is the only one who chews toys here and the coconut with all sorts of bits attached on it seemed to last a while, I tend to aim for harder wood toys which are normally way more expensive but last much longer. I'm starting to think most of these toys are bits of coloured paper and and bits of balsa wood, when you spend £s on them and they last minutes it's a bit frustrating. I'm trying to use lots of safe wood branches and cut them up to create chew stacks it's working out cheap, kinda fun to make and lots of work for them to destroy.

Any idea where still sells the java double towers?

I got mine from scarletts but can't see them on there anymore, could really do with buying another one to replace Kikis.

Possibly what used to be Becks (breeder)? Think it's now Abbie's Pets & Exotics (her daughter I think). The website isn't an online store, but I see something similar on a gallery photo of the toy section, so don't know if they do orders over the phone or anything.
 
Toy wise, (long lasting) the toughest have been an indestructibell, which is totally battered, but hasn't given up yet. And Gary's all time favourite acrylic spaceship that he has had since he was a 'toddler', and is STILL his favourite toy to beat up (bearing in mind that he's 10 now!) Java toys last well, but they work at a weak point and then focus on that till it's a splintery mess :lol:

Oh he's got one of the bells, I'm surprised it'd actually lasted as long as it has but he's working on it 🤣🤣🤣

He's the only one whose managed to destroy java wood so far! Hopefully he doesn't teach the others 🤣🤣🤣

Unfortunately for me apart from all toys being despatched within the hour, Coconuts last longest, my boy (Rio B&G) takes great delight in splitting the links on the chains, I bought a large baffle cage for treats easiest way in was to remove the bottom rail by splitting all the welds. Such a busy beak, branches to chew are the best but are a bit samey, any suggestions would be greatly received.

Enzo doesnt really play with toys, she can do baby jigsaws and put coloured rings on wooden dowels etc, but she much prefers to stalk and attack things, oh and drop everything on the kitchen worktop onto the floor... she watches how they bounce and the noises they make, often with a laugh if she enjoyed it. She loves chewing wood of course, initially i bought her wood from the local wood yard but found out that is dangerous with tanalised wood. She now chews untreated beech peices that I get from my GF's furniture factory. Its a LOT harder than pine but she still makes short work of it.... Does anybody need and fire kindling?

With coconut, ive bought Enzo a few coconut 'Monkey Heads' and i must say it took her quite some time to destroy them. The benefit of the heads are that you can fill it with paper/cardboard and hide her favorite nuts etc in, so a nice foraging item. She enjoyed stripping the coconut 'hair' off the head too. I must buy another of them.

Mine are big on foragers, though some are smarter than others!

A couple of my zons are really good with puzzles aswell and like the ones where they can unscrew things and open the sliders and doors.

Granted my patty just likes to destroy the coconut heads, he doesn't really bother with what I put inside the mouth part of it, he's all about removing the features 🤣🤣🤣
