Cockatoos are lovely birds, and while many avian enthusiasts own them, they’re very challenging pets to keep. Considered a pest species in some parts of the world like Australia, cockatoos are extremely loud. The calls these birds emit can be reach 135 decibels, just a bit quieter than the sound of a 747 taking off. Their capacity for mimicking human speech is very cute, until they start learning swears, or the lyrics to that song you were obsessed with a month ago, but are now sick of. Real cockatoos are also fairly destructive of wooden furniture, and tend to bite quite a bit. They’re also a huge commitment, as they tend to live 70 years or more.
So, if you love this admittedly beautiful, though problematic bird, a plushy is just the thing to help you enjoy it without the work. Whether you’re a parent who’s not ready for the demands of a budding bird nut, or just a person who admires the animal, but not the upkeep, this is perfect. His sweet, birdy face, with curious, shiny eyes and adorable floppy wings melt hearts everywhere he goes. Made with high quality durable materials, and considerably softer and less uppity than his real life counterpart, this bird is perfect for napping with or a nice quiet display piece. His soft, distinctive comb is great for petting, and his four toed feet are accurate to the original, preserving all of the charm of this unique bird with none of the hassle.
