Plastic Toucan Action Figure

Create your own magical world with this wonderful toy!

Our Plastic Toucan Action Figure

This toucan is made of hard plastic and has movable parts that can possibly come apart and may or may not snap back together. The joints are meant to move the animal into different positions rather than to snap apart. Because snapping them apart results in small loose pieces, this toy is NOT recommended for very small children. It is great for school projects, dioramas, as a toy for older kids or grown-ups, party favors, collectibles, etc. It measures 3 1/2 inches from beak to tail. The movable parts are the beak, neck, wings, and legs. To see our entire collection of action figures, check out our Animal Action Figures page.

About Keel-Billed Toucans

Toucans are brightly-colored birds with distinctively-large bills, primarily located in Central and South America, Mexico, the Caribbean, and southern Florida. Toucans are omnivores, feeding primarily on fruits, eggs, insects, and small birds and reptiles. Both the male and female share responsibilities in caring for their clutch of 2-4 eggs, taking turns seated on the clutch to incubate their young. The large bill (usually 1/3 of the bird’s total length) is made of spongy, hollow bone struts covered in keratin, a hard protein that also makes up hair and nails in mammals.

Also known as the sulfur-billed and rainbow-billed toucan, the keel-billed toucan (Ramphastos sulfuratus) is typically 12-22 inches long and weighs under a pound. Keel-billed toucans are found from southern Mexico to Venezuela and Columbia.
