The Kōkako Soft Toy is an adorable plush version of one of New Zealand’s endemic wattlebirds, an ancient family of birds which includes the North and South Island saddleback and the extinct huia. 

The North Island kōkako has been in significant decline over the last 20 years but, thanks to conservation efforts, that trend is reversing in many areas to the point that the kokako has been reclassified from Threatened to At Risk: Recovering. Unfortunately, the South Island kōkako (with orange wattles) are now assumed to be extinct. Although it's remotely possible they may survive in low numbers in remote parts of the South Island and Stewart Island, currently there are no confirmed reports of sightings.

If you give this toy a squeeze, you can hear a recording of the real thing.

 

Measures approximately 15cm long.
