Tui Bird Hand Puppet with Sound

This tui bird is a hand puppet that makes the actual sound of the New Zealand tui bird when pressed. It's head also swivels and is controlled from inside the puppet.

It measures 23cm tall.

About the Tui
The tui is a member of the honey eaters, possessing a brush tipped tongue to collect nectar from flax etc. It also feeds on insects and defends it's territory aggressively. The tui is a noisy bird in flight and in song. It has striking iconic melodies mixed with croaks squeaks and all manner of sounds. It is also a clever mimic of other bird calls. The tui appears black but, on close inspection, is various iridescent greens with a reddish brown back topped with a white flecked shawl. Most characteristic are two white tufts on its throat that earned it the name the parson bird.
