REVIEW: Babo’s Bird Uglydoll
Uglydolls have released the newest design from David Horvath and Sun-Min Kim – Babo’s Bird.
You know how everyone looks like their pet? Well, Babo looks just like his pet peeve! BIRDS! Babo can’t stand birds! They always eat the crumbs his cookies leave behind! Well, too bad because one bird has taken a liking to Babo and now likes to call him mommy.
Sounds serious, right? And Babo doesn’t have a mean bone in his body. So now Babo’s Bird is...Babo’s bird. Luckily Babo doesn’t have shoulders either. Have any cookie crumbs?
Nope. None. Nada. No thanks. While you might want to keep him in a cage, Babo’s Bird is free of any packaging.
Babo’s Bird is a plush that’s available in 2 Foot Tall (2’), Regular (14”), Little Ugly (7”) and Keychain (4”) versions. The turquoise colored character has chicken bone looking feet, little wings and a funny looking crest on the top of his head.
This is the member of the 2008 Uglydoll line that we’ve been looking forward to (although he might be tied with Puglee). It’s more so the character than the color of the plush that appeals to me. Babo’s Bird doesn’t resemble any of the other characters that we’ve seen from Sun-Min and David.
I’d have to suggest, if you’re trying to be true to scale, that you should partner the Little Ugly Babo’s Bird with the Regular Babo. Right? His bird should be a little bit smaller. Unless the bird is a giant like an ostrich.
