Measuring only 13cm from the top of his hat to his big red feet, the Mini Drinking Bird is a tiny drinking marvel.
Dip his beak in water, and he'll be drinking all day. The Mini Drinking Bird comes with his own plastic cup and some basic instructions
Although smaller than the Classic Drinking Bird we all know and love, the Mini Drinking Bird is still a dedicated drinker and will actually drink faster than the classic.
The Mini Drinking Bird has a glass body with plastic legs, hat and cup.
This one experiment manages to demonstrate a whole range of physical laws, including the combined gas law, the ideal gas law, the Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution, the heat of vaporisation, torque, centre of mass, capillary action, and probably a few others.
Well, kind of - it will go on indefinitely, but it does rely on an energy input, in the form of heat from the surrounding environment, and you'll need to top the water up.
The combination of glass and volatile liquid means that the Mini Drinking Bird is not a toy. Kids should wonder at it from a distance.
This item is NOT A TOY. This is a science demonstration item for adults only.
