Default Looking for Safe Swing Recommendations?

So, as is probably somewhat predictable, Biz loooovvveeees swings. He has two swings and will balance with one foot on each, does flips on one; he will jump to his swing defiantly and look at me like "Yo, I'm on my swing. Leave me alone. I'm on my swing!" He sleeps on his favorite swing. I love his swing attachment because it's funny.

His favorite swing is a mystery metal with a wood base. (the other one is all plastic. a ring.) He loves it but I know he mouths the metal, and it was always on my list to replace.

As a temporary placeholder, I bought another plastic swing that is anchored with a bell that will need to replaced with a stainless steel bell, but I have to say, objectively.... I feel like a bad person taking out his favorite swing. Even though it's for the best for him.

Any recommendations on bird-safe, bird-healthy swings? (no mystery metals, no rope, etc. etc.)

Thank you.... !!!!

I put the new plastic swing in and left the old one, hoping he would pick the new one to sleep on..... no he's on his favorite metal and wood swing. Maybe it's early yet. Too soon maybe.

Mallorn's favourite swing was made for her by the Natural Bird Company in Scotland. They do ship to the US, and I think it's worth it. They have a ton of great swing options on their website! Here's Mallorn and her swing:

My birds like swings they can destroy.


Planet Pleasures Ring toy


Mini Trapeze

ETA: The ring toy is rather long so don't buy unless you have a reasonably tall cage. It has fit nicely in both an A&E flight cage and a Prevue F050.
