This squawking parrot has proved lots of fun! The squawking does start grating after a while but my children have had so much fun with this puppet it's difficult to criticise! He's a very generous size and hasn't lost too much fluff either which is unusual for such a 'fluffy' toy. He's sparked lots of role play situations - has been hen-pecked in a zoo, flown over the amazon, been captured for a nasty child to keep in a cage and had a broken leg fitted at the vets! Excellent value, very well made and (sadly) the squawk shows no sign of wearing out!
