This high quality soft toy is the perfect introduction to one of Australia’s favourite birds. Rainbow lorikeets are known as the ‘clowns of the bird world’ and with their brightly coloured feathers, it’s easy to see why – and the reason why youngsters love them so much.
Watch out for these colourful birds at dusk as they swoop down in their hundreds to roost in their favourite place, usually in tall eucalypts.
Learn how this native of Australia’s east coast is one bird that doesn’t eat seeds but relies on its bristle brush tongue to gather sticky nectar and pollen from deep down in the bottom of native flowers.
Discover the comical behaviour of the male rainbow lorikeet at mating time as he tries to impress the female with a display of bobbing, bowing and prancing.
Best for: Curious young minds who will love taking their first steps in learning about the natural world through soft play. Great to add a splash of colour in a little one’s bedroom or as a first feathered friend to snuggle up with.
