5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous, high quality Shelduck toy - with an authentic characterful Shelduck call !, 21 July 2014

This review is from: Wild Republic Birds 13-16cm RSPB Shelduck with Real Bird Calls Plush (Toy)
These Wild Republic birds are very good quality - soft plush fabric, and well-made. I now have several, and this Shelduck is one of my favourites - I've seen Shelducks in the wild in some quite remote places, so this little character is a nice reminder. The plumage is quite 'true to life' - and the duck also emits a rather unusual, totally authentic deep chuckling call - twice in succession in fact - when the correct spot on its lower back is pressed. Visitors love it too, and it never fails to raise a smile!

I think these Wild Republic birds are suitable for almost all ages - from 3 to 103! Children will love them, because they are fun, cute and cuddly - whilst also learning to appreciate nature and recognise the various bird songs - and I even bought one for my 80-year old mother, and she is delighted with it too!

The calls incorporated in the birds' 'voice boxes' are all totally authentic recordings, and have been produced at CEBA, Centre Bioacoustique Alpin, in France. I sometimes go and set all of mine off one after the other in an idle moment, as do any visitors... Great fun, good quality and highly recommended.

N.B. I have however bought one or two that were reduced to half price or less and the ones I received were a little 'wonky', e.g. one eye noticeably higher than the other - etc - so I recommend paying around full price for them, especially if they are to be a gift.
