Novelty Dippy Drinking Bird

Just as this top hat wearing bird will never stop being thirsty, you'll never stop being amused by the repetitive actions of the Novelty Dippy Drinking Bird! Place him over a glass of water and watch as he swings up and down, appearing to take a drink. A fun way to teach kids some basic scientific principles, the bird moves when condensate from the fluid in its glass body accumulates on its beak. This makes the bird top heavy, causing him to tip forward. Then, the fluid rushes to the bottom, and the bird stands up again! The head and feet are crafted out of plastic.

When the head of the bird is moistened with water, it will repeatedly?bend down?and appear to be drinking from a cup?of water in front of it. The dunking is due to the evaporating water, which cools the head reducing the pressure of the gas inside. The liquid inside the bird rises up from his tail towards his head, causing the bird to?bend down and appear to be drinking.?When the bird dunks, the liquid returns to its tail, and the process begins again. The novelty dippy drinking bird only needs water to run.

- A felt covered head and has plastic feet
- 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
- The fluid and dye inside the bird can permanently stain, and the bird's glass body can easily be broken
- Children are fascinated by the bobbing bird, and the educational possibilities are great

  • great Novelty Dippy Drinking Bird

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: The item works well, durable, the item is true to the picture, provides hours of entertainment as well as a perfect desk piece, quite and completly self-sufficient aslong as you add water in your cup a couple times a week.

    Cons: The only con in this product is that the red ink inside the bird, eventually begins to be diluded in your cup of water, thus turning into a lighter coulour.

    Other: If you like the bird or know someone who would like this classic. Don't hesitate to buy it!

    Pros: Running constantly since I got it and my children are fascinated not only by the movement of this beautiful and educational bird room ... is a true mobile perpeetuum. It is a verry cool toy.

    Cons: When it came the box was crushed from shipping but the birds was not damaged in any condition I noticed. It works fine, No cons except for damaged box, which I would have throw away anyways.Could use a more serious case ...

    Other: Once, very long time, I saw this bird ancestor was smaller and did not have to back ... it says your new generation of birds serves a whiskey ???...

  • The best product ever

    posted by juanitodur on 08:50:29 G8T 05/08/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: The fact is that since we ever watched the simpson's episode, where Homer uses it as a backup mate for his job during his homeoffice due to disability, we all wanted to have it. Well, dream came true for me.

    Cons: Just to read the manual instructions to see how the chemical experiment works is the only con I found. Those minutes are gone and the enjoy and have fun forever.

    Other: Great product, price, service. Many pros, no cons. It arrived on time, no delays, my first purchase, so dx started with the right foot for me.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: It works and it is really fun to watch the bird nipping on a cup of water! A nice gift, not only for children :)

    Cons: The build quality is not the best, but the bird is working, so thats really okay. It is also a bit hard to find some kind of cup with which the bird is working, but that is also okay :)

    Other: As i have only ordered five of them (and thats not enough for my desk at work, because every guest seeing it wants to take one with him), i have ordered four of them last week again.

  • Very funny Product from my childhood!

    posted by shefus on 07:57:17 G6T 03/06/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: works immediately for hours. looks cool. It never stops, it just keeps dipping its head in whatever you put in front of it. Kids love it and you can stay and look at it for minutes just because it is entertaining.

    Cons: The quality isn't the best. It is made of cheap plastic, but will last if you treat it carefully. Needs a glass or recipient of water of certain height to work.

    Other: nostalgia! I recommend it.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: It's funny toy! it just works as what it should and as advertised

    Cons: When received, the box was dented but the product was intact. The bird's arm holder needed to be adjusted by bending it apart for some time, as it was bent inside when it came.

    Other: Nice toy to have. If you like things that works with "natural power supply" and environmentally friendly "battery", this one is recommended to have.

  • Funny toy for old and young

    posted by rackertamer on 03:54:23 G4T 29/04/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Easy to assemble, works immediately for hours, just assure that the glass is always that full that it needs to be. Afterwards it works as long as the felt on the birds head is still suck with water.

    Cons: looks a little cheaper than the birds in the 1970s but for less than $4,- absolutely OK.

    Other: I can only strongly recommend to everyone who likes this endless movement toys containing also some kind of nostalgy.

  • Cool bird, great gift

    posted by larsman1 on 04:56:34 G4T 26/04/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Not a lot to say here.. It works great and look cool. I bought it because of the Simpsons episode where Homer use this to press a button instead of doing it himself, hahaha gotta love Homer =)

    Cons: No one yet, don't think this one has any cons. Perhaps it break easy??? But if you take care of it and don't handle it rough it won't break I think. I put four stars on usefulness because it's not "useful" like a flashlight or a knife...

    Other: It's great. Great gift. Looks cool. Nice price. Works great. Does what it is meant to do =)

  • Naprosto uzasna kravina

    posted by ladacoufal on 00:40:06 G3T 20/03/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Naprosto uzasna kravina, kterou jsem si jiz chtel davno poridit. Bohuzel u nas jsem ho videl za 200,-Kc coz je cca $10. Takze z cenoveho hlediska dobry. Kdyz jsem obrzel zasilku, tak jsem si rikal, ze je to spatne, protoze krabicky (kupoval jsem tri kusy) byly cele pomackane. Po vybaleni , ale ptakum nic nebylo, jen jeden mel ohnutou nohu, coz se dalo snadno napravit nad zapalovacem. Na prvni pokus jsem ptaka zprovoznil, pak jsem si jeste hral s vyvazenim, aby se nekyval moc rychle. To se dela posunovanim banky v kovove spone.

    Cons: proti nic, poze pomackane krabicky

    Other: kupoval jsem levnejsi variantus cervenou kapalinou, maji zde i modrou, ale cervena se mi libila stejne vice
