The flightless takahē is a unique bird, a conservation icon and a survivor. The North Island takahē is unfortunately extinct and the South Island variety were also once believed extinct until they were rediscovered in 1948 in the remote Murchison Mountains/Te Puhi-a-noa by Geoffrey Orbell and his party. 

Although they look similar to their distant relative the pūkeko, takahē are much larger and more brightly coloured. Takahē weigh between 2.3 – 3.8 kg. They live for 16–18 years in the wild and 20–22 years at sanctuary sites.


This children’s toy includes some of the takahē's iconic features such as its bright red bill and frontal shield, deep blue head and neck and olive green wings and back. It makes a lovely gift for little ones.


Measures approximately 15cm long.
