This Talk Back Parrot is absolute rubbish and does not work!

I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS ITEM
Unfortunately I ordered two of the Talk Back Parrots and they arrived very promptly. I had hoped to make them fun gifts for friends for Christmas. The only packaging consisted of what looked like a black plastic bin liner Sellotaped around the boxes. The two boxes had also been Sellotaped together which meant that in trying to separate them, the outside paper layer of the boxes tore and I had to cut the Sellotape and leave it on the boxes. The parcel had been damaged in transit, the black plastic bin liner was torn and one of the boxes was also torn. I decided to check the two Talk Back Parrots in the hope they would be OK. The inside lid of the boxes stated "6 1.5V batteries included" but there were none in either box! I purchased batteries and inserted them but the Talk Back Parrots did not work! The awful stuff stuck on them to resemble feathers was falling off and made a mess. This was VERY disappointing and a great let-down by an Amazon supplier. I know Amazon returns are excellent but I will now have to try to wrap these securely as I had to cut the original black plastic in order to open the parcel as it was impossible otherwise! I am SO cross that I've wasted so much time on these rubbish Talk Back Parrots.
