Angry Birds is one of the most famous and addictive mobile games in recent memory. Chances are, even if you have not tried it before, you would have heard of the game from someone. It first came out for the iOS, and because of its tremendous success, it has since been ported to the Nokia Ovi, Google Android and others.
Early this year, Rovio released official merchandise from the franchise, including various sizes plush of the birds & pigs and iPhone covers. There will even be a board game. Finally, we all have something tangible to collect other than it being just a virtual item. There are a lot of bootleg plush and merchandise floating around the internet and even in shops due to their popularity, so do take note. Most of the bootleg red bird plush have a pure white bottom, whereas if you notice in the game graphics, the red bird has a slightly brownish bottom, so this is reflected in the original plush as well. The safest place to ensure you are getting the originals would be from the official Rovio online store or Toywiz. We got ours from Toywiz as the shipping to Singapore was cheaper there. Here’s a look at the official bird plush from the company who created them.
The yellow bird whom has a quick temper.
Special thanks to her for all the photography and her friend, heibo, for lending us the rest of the angry birds plushies to complete the photoshoot.
