I am a big fan of talking toys. I especially enjoy talking plush like Teddy Ruxpin. So I thought that I would enjoy the talking Big Bird toy. I remember that I got the opportunity to play with him at my friend’s house. His little brother had gotten one for Christmas and had zero interest in the toy. So I would play around with him while we were hanging out watching TV.
It turns out I did not enjoy him. Why? Because he does not have feathers. He has fur! How can you have a big bird without feathers. It makes him look like a weird-looking yellow teddy-bear with a beak.
