Kids are naturally curious about the world around them, at least mine is. A great deal of Z's first words were things she saw outside; cloud, grass, sun, airplane, and bird. Wild Republic has created an assortment of different bird stuffed animals that make real bird calls to help engage and enthuse young children and encourage their natural curiosity about birds!
Wild Republic is the nature toy brand at K & M International Inc. which is headquartered in Twinsburg, Ohio. That's right near my in-law's home so this business is local to me and I love that! Nothing makes me happier than supporting companies that are close to home. K & M is actually the leading provider of nature themed toys to the specialty toy and gifts market.
"Licensed by the legendary National Audubon Society, with real bird calls provided by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, these birds have become one of the hottest collectibles in the toy market. They sell well to both children and adult bird enthusiasts. Each bird is carefully researched, and comes with an educational hang tag that includes information about its appearance, eating habits, habitat maps and sound information. Avid collectors will be delighted that we've introduced a new series, Baby Birds."
We received a cute little Eastern Bluebird (pictured above) and I was happy to see that his tag had a ton of information about the species. We learned things like what states consider the Eastern Bluebird their state bird (Missouri & New York fyi) and there was a map of its migration patterns. We are happy to announce that Eastern Bluebirds can be found in Michigan during the Summer. We will really be keeping our eye out next Summer!
Z is absolutely tickled by her new friend and giggles every time someone presses its belly. This toy is incredibly soft and the bird call sounds really authentic. My favorite part of course is how education this little toy is. I would recommend this as a great stocking stuffer for pretty much all ages! They are cute, the real bird calls are really cool, and they are educational! I really, really want to collect them all (they even have a super cute turkey) until I have a complete and super cute flock of birds!
