Click to enlarge
Purrs has been providing the UK with the Da-Bird and all the accessories since 2006!
Da Bird (easy store) consists of 2 x 18" fibreglass rods that connect together, 50 lb. test braided nylon string and aerodynamically configured feathers that mimic the action of a REAL bird in flight.
A single bob of Da Bird is completely irresistible to cats.
Handcrafted/Assembled in the USA - Made in China.
TIP- The 2 part rod is handy for storing the Da Birdy when not in play. (However, it is best to keep the 2 part rod as a whole rod for storage if possible as the connector can weaken over time with alot of separating for storage. As an alternative, We also sell the UK made Single one part Flying Frenzy 39" Rod or single length Frenzy 19" rod.- http://www.purrsinourhearts.co.uk/shop/best-cat-toys/Flying-Frenzy-Wand-Cat-Toy
The feather end is replaceable, so once a cat has had many great times catching their prey, the supplied feather end can be replaced quickly.
There are 3 other GoCat Da Bird range different attachments (Available separately) –Sparkler, Puff and Super Feather refill to provide variety of play and long term interest.
Also all of the many different attachments in the UK Frenzy Range will also clip on to the Da bird rod and visa versa! - http://www.purrsinourhearts.co.uk/shop/Frenzy-Cat-Toys-UK
Safety - As with all fishing rod toys, please ensure supervised play at all times. Some cats will eat the string when unsupervised. As this toy is so popular, it is recommended to lock it away when not in use.
The Da Bird rod is made out of fibreglass so may cause fibreglass splinters in your hand, to avoid this you can cover a the bottom part with tape to avoid splinters. Never allow your cat to chew on the rod.
So what's the difference from The Da Bird Easy store (USA) to the Flying Frenzy (UK) rods?-
The Da Bird has a two part rod 18" long each pushed together to make a 36" long rod. The Flying Frenzy is a single long rod 39" long or single length 19" rod. Both excellent quality. However the Frenzy rods do have these advantages:-
- Fibreglass Splinters - Unfortunately small diameter fibreglass rods shed fibres when flexed, this is virtually impossible to stop with a rod of 3mm diameter and when they stick in your hand they can be very painful. We have solved this problem by encasing the entire wand in a lightweight soft plastic sheath which does not affect the flexibility or strength of the wand but completely eliminates the splinter problem.
- Cord Tangling - Other manufacturers attach the cord with a plastic fitting which pushes onto the end of the rod, resulting in the cord not being attached to the end of the wand and pointing in the wrong direction. Our wands have the cord attached by an extra swivel hook so the cord is attached at the very tip of the wand and pointing the correct way so less likely to get the cord knotted around the wand. You can also replace the cord with one of your own easily.
- Damaged Cords & Clips - Eventually your cat will manage to chew through the cord. We don't expect you to buy a new wand when this happens, we supply a wand repair kit which includes a new cord, snap hook and glue lined fitting with swivel hook to restore your wand to new condition in a couple of minutes.
- Wand Falling Apart - Our wands are a one piece construction either 39" long or 19" long so no more wand falling apart at the joint after a short time playing.
