Oh look, it’s David Bowie! Er, Jareth (the Goblin King for those who remembered only that name – though if you remembered him at all as a snowy barn owl, you would probably know his real name too, we hope). Alas! It’s actually not any of those things. There go the dreams of many a fan girl/boy. It’s just a plain old barn owl. No goblins, no kings, no labyrinth, no Sarah, no questionable behavior in a kids’ movie, no muppets, no nothing.
Well, not nothing. After all, Folkmanis did all this work to bring Jareth, er, this adorable barn owl to life. With top-quality materials and extra cuddliness to boot, this is one bird of prey you’ll want to take home today. Of course as with all Folkmanis toys, this is no mere plush. It comes alive in your hand as a puppet! How cool is that. So while it may lack the intricacy of a Jim Henson Workshop creation, if you were inclined to pretend that you were Jareth spying on Sarah, you could do so. Or you could do something a whole lot less creepy! The choice is up to you, and limited only by your imagination.
This iconic bird has been given any number of names in its long existence: Silver Owl, White Owl, Cave Owl, Death Owl, Ghost Owl, Stone Owl, Hissing Owl, Hobgoblin/Hobby Owl and Dobby Owl (No, not ‘that’ Dobby, Potter fans). Whatever you call him, he’s sure to be a real treat!
