Description


This cuddly plush pelican has an empty belly . . . and a big appetite for fun! Young children can open the pelican's big bill (which squeaks when squeezed!) to drop four mini plush animals into his open mouth. Then the crinkly shrimp, squeaking octopus, and rattling fish and crab drop right into the bird's big belly! A peek-in, reach-in window on the pelican's front lets kids spot them easily and pull them out to try it all again. The repetitive activity is great for babies and toddlers working on motor skills and other early developmental skills. And thanks to an incredible array of fun-to-explore features--from chubby, squeak-able cheeks to crinkly wings to floppy, rattling feet--it never gets old!

Love this??
By Laura

I bought this years ago when I worked as a parent advisor for children with vision and/or hearing concerns. The bright colors and textures attracted their interest. I must have lost the "pelican food" in a move. Are extra food items available? This is a great interaction toy WITH a child to learn cause and affect, social and communication skills!

I purchased this for Christmas for my grandchild who lives in another state. Since travel is restricted I have not been able to see her play with it.
It looked like a fun and safe toy and the price was reasonable. Thanks

Cute but does it sit up

It's very cute but it does NOT sit up like the picture shows It must be hung in order for a child to use it. We ended up hanging it in the car for him to play with only drive somewhere. Very disappointed

My 6 month old granddaughter loves her Hungry Pelican! The bright colors and noisy little critters really catch her attention and keep her enthralled for minutes! (which is great for a baby that age!) It is her favorite toy!

For all the raves, this was a bust. The fact that it doesn't sit up, which is remarked upon in other reviews is a real problem. Toddlers can't get the mouth open alone and the small critters don't go down easily

By Kristin

We tied the pelican up on the edge of the playroom. I love the little animals and the features of the pelican. The beak squeaks, the feet rattle and the wings crinkle. The only thing I'd change is the octopus, it has a squeaker but it is hard to manipulate, it would be better with jingle bells on the inside!

I was a gift, but good news! The little critters were well loved. This will be a growing up to gift for a soon to be toddler. A learning experience with the critters going in the mouth and then magically appearing in the tummy! How does that happen? A toy that has many dimensions and will be loved for a long time.

My son loves this guy. Pulling things out of other things is his favorite game so it was right up his alley! With the rattles, crinkles, and squeaker in the pelican it's a fun sensory experience. The one thing I will say is this toy does not sit up on its own but has a tie on the pelican head to support it. All around a great toy!

By Sara

Pleasantly surprised that there is a tie to hold it up! Just happens to be the perfect size to tie onto the handle of my baby's push cart. Great quality, love that it is machine washable. The mini plush animals are adorable, the shrimp is his favorite. Love the different crinkly, rattly, squeaky features. 5/5

I would choose a different toy
By Steph
from California
on January 15, 2020
We received this as a gift. Like other reviews stated, it'd be much better if the pelican's body had more structure to it rather than just flopping over. My son would definitely play with it more of I didn't have to hold it up or find something to secure it to when playing outside of his crib. Not sure if only I have this problem, but the pelican's mouth is pretty small. It's difficult to get the toys in without practically force-feeding; the octopus barely fits. The squeaker in the beak can be tough for a child to get to although the crinkle in the wings is superb. The crab rattle is a favorite.

Toy was ok
By Shereen

on December 31, 2019
I was actually very disappointed with this toy. First off the pelican doesn't sit he's very frumpy I thought maybe there was a base for him to sit up. I also thought maybe there was a flap for a hand to make him pretend eating but there wasn't. But that's my fault for not reading into it. I def think they should at least make him sit up.

Unfortunately, the pelican does not sit or stand as others have mentioned. It is cute, but non-functional for my 9-month old. The pelican just slumps on the floor.

Disappointing
By Gina
from Colorado
on May 29, 2019
I really wanted a fill and spill toy for my 1 year old. I chose the wrong one. This toy is well made, looks like the picture but doesn't function as well as it looks. If it did stand on its own (or even just SIT on its own) then my toddler might be able to figure it out without help. The holes are hidden because it just flops over and lies flat. It's just an expensive stuffed animal unles I'm using both hands to hold it up and open for him.

Cute but Disappointing
By Wejehe
from New York
on March 30, 2019
I loved this idea of this toy when I saw it online! The online pictures show the baby putting the small critters in the STANDING pelican's mouth and also the pelican sitting! I was very disappointed to learn the pelican does not stand or sit. It's just a floppy cloth toy that sits all folded on itself...its difficult for a baby to maneuver...but the little critters are cute

Despite the fact that my daughter is terrified of this toy, it did not stand/sit up on its own, so it's not exactly as described. It's not easy or fun to put the toys in the mouth.
