For some time I have been amused by the RSPB’s singing bird cuddly toys, although the only one I have is the Lapwing. For those that haven’t seen them, there is an ever increasing range of species available, with many colourful and charismatic ones already created. When the toys are squeezed they utter a very realistic call, so realistic, in fact, that Lapwings have responded to my one – creating quite a confusion when the curious birds come across a fluffy toy being held aloft by a human.
Kids love these toys of course but they make a great present for anyone who loves birds. The good thing about the toys is that 100% of the profit made by the RSPB go towards bird conservation.
