The Flamingo puppet measures about 37 inches from the top of its head to the bottom of its feet. The legs are about 16 inches, and one leg has velcro near the body and foot so it can hold one leg up in the classic flamingo pose. Since the flamingo has such a long neck, the access to reach through the neck and work the mouth is located under the left wing. The wing helps hide the access opening. Of course the flamingo is partially stuffed, but the neck has very little stuffing in order to reach your arm through. The flamingo has a great working mouth and a long beak that can add a lot of movement to the flamingo when it is talking. The super long shaggy material pictured here is a fun material but we also make the flamingo in a smooth fuchsia fabric.
