My Fly Birdie is a colorful plastic toy that mimics the flight of a real bird by flapping its wings causing it to fly unassisted into the air.
After the user winds up the toy, the bird will fly into the air up to 150 feet before gliding back down to the ground when it runs out of stored energy.
The toy does not need batteries or charging and can be used inside or outside. The flight pattern of the toy can be changed by moving the tail up or down, causing the bird to fly straight or in circles.
The cost of My Fly Birdie is $14.95 plus $4.95 shipping, for a total price of $19.9.
