This 8″ COQUI PLUSH version comes with a Sound Chip that makes the noise of the coqui. To hear the song of the coqui, squeeze the belly of the frog. It will hang almost anywhere just like a real coqui. It shows off the Puerto Rican flag for all to see, embroidered on its stomach. This Plush has NO Suction cups on it’s feet.
As the sun sets in Puerto Rico, the volume rises as the tiny coquí begins its evening chorale. Locals and visitors are serenaded into sweet slumber by the little male frogs’ call of “Co-kee! Co-kee!” The island was once filled with millions of these frogs from a number of different species. Today only 17 species remain. A few of them are endangered or threatened as a result of deforestation. But, just like the Puerto Rican people, they are resilient and their voices are loud, and they will be heard. This is why the coquí is the perfect national symbol for Puerto Rico: small island, small frog, BIG VOICE.
