What 1:12 scale modern people don’t need tacky accessories in their front garden? This ‘plastic’ garden flamingo will fulfil that desire a lot of us have to do things with our miniature houses that we wouldn’t do in real life, necessarily. Or maybe you do in real life, and want to put your tastes (flamingos *are* pretty cute!) into your minis!
The pink flamingo was designed in 1957, and have been ‘popular’ ever since. They’re still in production and come in varying shapes, colours, and styles.
This garden flamingo is made from wire and sculpey. It has one ‘leg’ as many of the real life versions do. Its full body height (not including the leg) is approximately 35 mms.
