Watch him sing and boogie along to your favourite songs!
Most pop stars are rubbish at lip-syncing, especially when they’re dancing. So thank goodness the Kuchi-Paku Penguin Animal Speaker has flapped its way into Firebox HQ to take this much-maligned art form to a whole new level of hilarity.
A global craze in the making, this impossibly cute, battery-operated soft toy is set to have owners and onlookers in stitches as it lip-syncs and boogies along to the music it hears. Squawk! It’s a bit like a birdy version of Britney minus the saucy outfits. It even lip-syncs to speech. But unlike Britney the Kuchi-Paku Penguin also doubles up as a portable speaker for your MP3 player. Just plug it in and you’re good to go. You can then squeeze your Kuchi-Paku’s wing and it’ll dance and lip-sync to your tunes.
There’s something unfathomably funny about watching a penguin miming to Beyoncé, but wait until you put your cuddly pal in ‘microphone mode’ because he’ll lip-sync to your voice. You can then plonk him on your desk, hide underneath and start speaking. Trust us, telling someone they’re fired via a comedy penguin is unbeakably amusing.
If your Kuchi-Paku’s hooked up to your MP3 player and you tire of its incessant flapping/mouthing off, simply squeeze its wing and it will calm down while the music continues. It’s ideal for kids, pranksters and infantile music fans of all ages.
Short of shoving a speaker into a highly intelligent dancing parrot that’s had its beak replaced with fluffy lips (well you never know), we can think of no better talking pet with which to amuse yourself. So get ordering. But hurry, because judging by the reaction the Kuchi-Paku Penguin’s been getting around these parts we predict it’ll fly, or at least waddle, off the shelves faster than…well, faster than a dancing penguin that appears to know every word of Jedward’s Ice Ice Baby.
