Toddler Rio Blu Costume
There's one important thing you should know about this costume: Rio is not the name of this bird. Yes, we know that's confusing. No, Rio refers to Rio de Janeiro, where the movie is set. The bird's name is actually Blu, which is easy to remember because he himself is blue. But not a bluebird. Yes, that's a confusing point too. No, Blu is a Spix's Macaw. A blue bird but not a bluebird. Do you really need to know all this for your child to enjoy cawing around the living room flapping wings with a fervor that only toddlers possess? No, probably not. Then again, it certainly couldn't hurt to put a little general trivia in that noggin of yours. You never know if the next time you play Trivial Pursuit and a card reads "what type of bird is featured in Rio?" At first you'll be thinking "Oh, I know, Rio is the type of bird because Rio is the name of the bird in the movie." but we've established that's wrong (you're welcome!). So you keep thinking "hang on, my child is always running around in that bird costume, and I remember reading the description about it and I can clearly remember the bird is a Spix's Macaw!" You blurt it out. Your team is shocked and impressed. Enjoy that Trivial Pursuit pie piece, friend. You've certainly earned it.More importantly, your young one is going to be flapping with excitement over their most favorite bird outfit and will probably be telling you more about the Spix's Macaw than even we know, along with every other bird that shows up in the movie, because that's just how kids get when it comes to things they love. They want to know everything they can. Give them a leg up... er, wing up, with this!
