Playgym: (noun) A perching structure that serves as an activity center for a parrot made up of a perch or perches and accessories, such as toys, a ladder and/or swing. It may or may not include a small treat and water dish. Playgyms are either part of the cage top or independent of the cage. Independent playgyms are made of hard woods or PVC, materials that are easier to clean but hard to destroy. Parrot playgyms were created as a mental stimulation and physical action center for a pet bird’s out-of-cage time. It is a better place to interact with a pet bird than its cage.
