Anyone know where I can find a Birdo stuffed doll? My little sister loves him (her?), so I'd like to get her one. I'm sure I could find one randomly online from Japan, but I'd like to order from the states.

And just in case some noob doesn't know which Birdo I'm talking about, it's:

Birdo is referred to as male that believes he is female, and would like to be called Birdetta

Most later American-localized games, such as the Mario sports titles, which have featured Birdo with a diamond ring, have usually listed Birdo as a female

Recent localizations have avoided the use of any gender pronouns when describing Birdo. In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, it is said that Birdo is of "indeterminate gender" in its trophy.

everything you wanted to know about Birdo, but were afraid to ask....

Wow.

I didn't think the information would come out that quick, and I certainly didn't think it would be that thorough. Damn. Nice.

Good luck finding Birdo.

I got a bunch of Yoshi's though and I know they are easy to find.

Thanks for that, but what I'm really looking for is WHERE TO BUY A PLUSH BIRDO DOLL. I can't find anywhere to buy one, even after googleing for a good 20 minutes.

Any leads/helps would be much appreciated!

Transsexual.org has a pretty good page about Birdo, calling him the "first transsexual video game character":

Anyways, this seems like a pretty rare toy....might not exist.
Hi...

DID SOMEBODY SAY "TOOT"?!?

Wow, someone paid $60 for one? Damn!

I actually did see the last one on eBay too ($19.99), but was trying to find one in the U.S. to avoid major shipping. Still, it seems like these plushes are pretty damn rare, so I'll bite the bullet and get this one.

Thanks etcrane!
