Wild Republic Audubon Bird (American Goldfinch) Review & Giveaway

Our American Goldfinch

Have you heard of Wild Republic and their line of Audubon Birds?  I am actually quite familiar with most of the entire line as my in-laws have been sending them to David's grandmother for years.  The kids love looking at them and playing with them every time we go for a visit.

These birds are licensed through the legendary National Audubon Society.  This collection consists of realistic plush birds with authentic sounds.  The actual bird calls are provided by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, pretty awesome right?

The Audubon Birds have been a key product line of Wild Republic for over a decade and each year, the company looks to add more authentic birds to the line.  Each bird is carefully researched and comes with an educational hang tag that includes information about its appearance, eating habits, habitat maps and sound information.

Last year in 2013, Wild Republic extended its license with Audubon Society to offer Audubon Birds Clasp Purses, which do not have bird call sounds.  I haven't seen these yet but I am pretty sure that my girls would be in love.

We were sent the American Goldfinch Series 1 bird for review.  Our hang tag tells us that American Goldfinches are found throughout the United States and Canada.  The males have much brighter yellow feathers that contrast well with the black patches on their head and wings while females are duller yellow.  They make twittering sounds.

I love the color coded map included of the migration patterns.  Our bird is soft, colorful and a perfect size for little ones.  I think the most impressive thing about these birds is the authentic sounds.  When you push the birds back, you will hear the authentic American Goldfinch call.  These birds are fun, realistic and highly educational.

 All the kids enjoy playing with our bird including F!
