Audubon Plush Beanbag Birds

Wild Republic has teamed with Audubon and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology to produce “a collection of original realistic plush beanbag birds with authentic sounds” that will delight kids from 3 to 93. Go to the Wild Republic Website and click on Audubon Birds to view the 24 birds in the collection.

There are 3 series of Backyard Birds:

Series 1 includes American Goldfinch, American Robin, Black-capped Chickadee, Blue Grosbeak, Northern Cardinal, and Painted Bunting.

Series 2 includes Baltimore Oriole, Blue Jay, Red-winged Blackbird, Swamp Sparrow, Western Meadowlark, and Western Tanager.

Series 3 includes Eastern Bluebird, Hooded Warbler, Purple Finch, Red-headed Woodpecker, Scarlet Tanager, and Tufted Titmouse.

The Water Bird series includes Canada Goose, Canvasback, Common Loon, Green-winged Teal, Mallard, and Wood Duck.

Most of the birds are easily identifiable, although I have to admit that I probably wouldn’t have been able to correctly identify the Eastern Bluebird, Pubple Finch, and Western Meadowlark without help. All in all, these are great educational toys for youngsters.

After viewing the birds, check out the Games section, which includes a quiz and 10 jigsaw puzzles (5 easy and 5 hard). The jigsaw puzzles are great fun! I was able to complete the hard version of the Northern Cardinal in just 10 minutes and 24 seconds!
