Recycling Childrens Toy Bricks

Post by miknicholl » Thu Jul 07, 2011 3:41 pm

Hi Guys
Well ive looked at wooden parrot toy and wooden rattie toy and they are very expensive so i just happened to be in a chariety shop and i found a bag of wooden building bricks. I bought them. the idea is to drill holes in the bricks and string them on rope to hang in my ratties cage. i think the wooden bricks are safe as they were childrens so the painted ones will be ok.

The wooden bricks i bought for £3 http://i1133.photobucket.com/albums/m59 ... C00507.jpg
Another childs toy i bought £1 http://i1133.photobucket.com/albums/m59 ... C00506.jpg
Blocks i threded onto a chain http://i1133.photobucket.com/albums/m59 ... C00508.jpg

Hi
I agree all most of the bricks need is a good washing some ave been well used and then forgotten and given to a chariety shop to sell pretty cheaply so why not recycle them
