I have been talking about parts & their difference for ions now. So I decided it is time to explain the parts that I use & why. Yes, GFBToys uses some parts that are more expensive than what other toy maker’s use that is similar, but knowing is important.

This blurb is about: Playing Cards

(and not all is created equal)

Playing cards…birds & critters enjoy them to chew on, shred & make confetti out of them. They appeal to all beak sizes from keet to macaw/toos plus small critters to rabbits too. You can find decks of playing cards in a variety of sizes, shapes, themes, thicknesses & colors to satisfy your creative design ideas. And they are readily available, basically an inexpensive & easy part to work with. Also, depending on how creative one is you can do quite a bit with playing cards.

Unfortunately not all playing cards are created equal. Most playing cards have a ‘plastic’ coating covering them, especially if the cards come from China…Do you know what the ‘plastic’ coating is made of?? Many China made playing cards contain formaldehyde to help preserve them on their travels. How about the inks used on the cards?? What are they??

The playing cards that are used in creating GFBToys:

-Made in USA-Certified

-Eco-friendly, recyclable, compostable

-Starch base laminate coating

-Vegetable inks
