This swing is such a great product. It is sturdy and has lasted tons of use throughout the years without any damage what so ever. My two budgies love using this swing. My budgie, Pistachio seems to enjoy many different toys from JW Pet company. Some have had a little wear and tare throughout the years. My male budgie will often times talk into and tap on the inner mirrors on the side. And sometimes he even rings the bells. My female, budgie, Cashew tends to use this swing as a place to sleep at night. It's easy to clean and super affordable too for such a good quality toy that my birds enjoy.
