This amazingly detailed plush puppet is great for both cuddling and for story telling. With his fully movable beak and huge 25-inch wingspan, he’s perfect for educational shows about endangered and protected species. Pretend to be a falconer, with your loyal eagle scooping up prey at your bidding, or add flavor to your Lord of the Rings fantasy, letting a troop of these birds (which were the basis for the giant eagles in the book and movie) save you from the impending lava flow of Mount Doom. Golden Eagles are huge birds, which can have a wingspan of up to 7 feet, and tend to live in mountainous areas. Of course, most people don’t have mountains in their back yards, or room for such a majestic beast. This plush has all of the breathtaking beauty of the original, employing slight color variations and different, quality fabrics to mimic the different, lovely plumage on the original.
This eagle also has a long history in iconography, making it a fabulous display piece for history buffs and patriots. As the most common national animal in the world, represented on the flags of Germany, Austria, Egypt, Mexico, etc as well as displayed on the coat of arms for dozens of royal families, chances are you know someone to whom this bird has a special significance. With its reputation for power, grace, and being a perfect hunting machine, its positive symbolism calls to mind the best of humanity and the wonders of the natural world.
