Figure of the week

Schleich Flamingo - LeVida Toys

This weeks figure of the week is the Schleich Flamingo

We have chosen the Schleich Flamingo for this week’s figure of the week. Hand-painted with accurate detail and features, capturing the flamingo’s beauty perfectly.

Flamingos are long-legged, long-necked, wading birds with reddish-pink plumage. The name Flamingo comes from the Spanish word for flame. Flamingos spend most of their time wading in shallow waters, looking for food. When flamingos flap their wings, they create a unique humming sound that you can hear from up to a mile away.

When a flamingo spots potential dinner, it plunges its head into the water, twists it upside down, and scoops the fish using its upper beak like a shovel. The flamingo’s favourite food includes shrimp, snails, and plantlike water organisms called algae. Flamingos can “run” on water, thanks to their webbed feet. They do this to gain speed before lifting up into the sky.
