Tobys toys was founded by Vern Livingston around 1992. After his passing, the business was bought from his wife by Dale & Stacy Rosso in 2004. We have since tried to keep up the high quality of his products and improve on them. When Vern gave someone a free toy, he always said "This is not for you, it is for your bird!".
We are constantly adding new toys of our own unique design to our toy line and at present have over 140 toys designed by us. We are able to keep the prices down on the toys we make because we get an excellent deal on the wood. Thusly the main items that you will see raising in cost are items that we have to buy for resale.
The main wood we use is white or yellow pine, we use some aspen on our large and small toys. Every bit of wood is sanded before it is dyed with USDA approved Food Coloring only. The chain that we use is nickel-steel as well as the quick links and non-welded rings. we use NO zinc products in or on our toys. All rope used is either 100 percent Cotton or Sisal rope.
If there are toys you want to make sure are available for you at one of our bird fairs, please do not hesitate to email us a pre-order. Pre-Orders guarantee you that the toys will be available at the fairs, it is on a first come first serve basis otherwise.
We do not require that pre-orders for fairs be paid for ahead of time, we will hold a pre-order until the end of a show. This is a service we are providing our regular customers as a thank you for buying from us.
If something comes up, missing a show you have pre-ordered for, will not affect your ability to pre-order for future shows.
