Dodo watering cans and Decorative Flamingoes

Style

ATTENTION: ibbi would like to publically apologise for unintentionally influencing recent research carried out by the WWF, which concluded that 1 in 4 British adults believe that the famously extinct Dodo is in fact very much still alive and that it is actually the flamingo that is in grave danger of extinction.

The elegantly long legs of these fuchsia pink creatures are designed more for decoration, ready to stand tall in your home or conservatory: each one ideally paired with its fellow flamingo friend.

We can only assume that our Dodo watering cans and decorative flamingos that can be found in many houses throughout the UK are partly to blame for this embarrassing outcome of national research.

The popularity of these beautifully hand painted items, which for the past couple of years have flown far across the globe from India to your doorsteps, have clearly had a much greater impact on the bird knowledge of the British nation than we had initially intended.

In order to ensure this does not happen in the future, we have taken this opportunity to clarify that the bright blues, reds, greens and yellows that characterise our dodo watering cans, with their beaks curving downwards and their carefully detailed webbed feet, should not be confused in species or function with our fabulous Flamingos.

We hope that making this distinction between our two very popular ibbi products successfully targets the root of the national problem that the average British adult is more likely to know the names of all the Kardashian sisters than they are to know the difference between a dodo and a flamingo.

Additionally, to avoid extinction of either of our special friends and to ensure they continue to light up your homes with their character and colour, avoid leaving them outside for extended periods of time.
