The Whio Soft Toy with Sound is an adorable plush version of New Zealand’s native whio, or blue duck.
The whio is only found in Aotearoa. It is a nationally vulnerable species and faces a risk of becoming extinct.
It is an iconic back-country species, and it features on the New Zealand $10 note.
This children’s toy includes some of the blue duck’s iconic features such as its slate blue-grey colouring, chestnut spotting on the breast and yellow eyes. It makes a lovely gift for little ones.
