Review:
With the grace of royalty, this child's toy will have imaginations soaring. The clever wing design offers the puppeteer two wing movement choices: flapping for flight, or closed for rest. This creature has so much charm that it will find its way into stories past, present and future. Accompanying printed material offers facts of interest about swans, followed by an excerpt from William Butler Yeats' The Wild Swans at Coole.
