- Fluid inside condenses from the evaporative cooling of the water off the bird's beak, making it top heavy and dunking it back into the water

- The condensate rejoins the liquid pool in the bird's bulb, and he tips up again

- Process continues indefinitely

Just a heads up but I bought one of these last time they were on offer. When it arrived it was cheap, nasty and didn't work. Still for £2.53 may be worth a punt

I once matched drinking wine with one of these guys.
Every time he wet his beak. I wet mine with a sip of wine.

I managed an hour and a bottle and half. I still remember the hangover.

This one looks exactly the same as the one the wife got me for Christmas - she paid £10 at Hawkins Bazaar in town (internet shopping is like an undiscovered country to her!).

Admittedly build quality is not impressive, and it takes some adjustment to get him working well, but it's worth the effort. I've got mine set up in the kitchen so he never runs dry.

But take care - last night I went down to get a biscuit to have with my bedtime cup of tea. After half an hour the wife came down to investigate and found me stood there mesmerised.

My tea was stone cold.


I ordered one of these for a xmas present for a friend in November.. As yet still havent received it or any of the other presents ordered from DealExtreme. I paid extra for express delivery via EMS!

DealExtreme will not issue a refund for my £50 order as they say it is still on its way to me, even though the tracking details have not been updated since the begining of December, and it is now 2 months since my package was dispatched!

dont buy this.bought one last time.just cheap ****.doesnt work as well.

Had one on last season of Mad Men so must have first come out in the 60's!

I have to say guys be careful with these, I had one and it broke so easy, I don't know what's in the very thin glass bulb bit but It burned my hand and caused loads of irritation.

It also stained my worktop

The liquid inside is methylene chloride which is used as a paint stripper.... so I am not surprised it burnt your hand and stained your worktop!

That's gonna make a million dollars!

Aaah ... brings back my childhood memory when this wer all the rage... had an Osctrich and Giraffe version of this, they wer great.

Bought one of these end of November for a secret santa only recently arrived in a battered box.

Might not be using mine correctly but don't think it works either goes down but that's it!!

This was on a looney tunes one with silvester and tweety... im sure silvester mistook the dipping bird for tweety and ate it then proceeded to imitate the bird... ah childhood memories!

heheheeehheeee hes coming back for more!!!

Encouraging to see non-flammability at the top of the features list oO

invented in 1945 and patented in 1946.

"Early models were often filled with highly flammable substances. The fluid in later versions is nonflammable. Dichloromethane can irritate the skin on contact, and the lungs if inhaled; it is a mutagen and teratogen, and potentially a carcinogen."
