With the first product line extension to its Audubon Birds™ plush collection, Wild Republic received an endorsement from Dr. Toy by earning a spot on the 2013 Dr. Toy Green Products List for its Wild Republic Audubon Birds Clasp Purses.

Vishnu Chandran, President of Wild Republic, said, "We are pleased to be recognized by Dr. Toy with the Green Award. Our Audubon Birds are one of our perennial best-selling product lines and this year we are very happy to add to the collection with our new Audubon Birds Clasp Purses."

Licensed through the legendary National Audubon Society, the Wild Republic line of realistic plush birds with authentic sound, (real bird calls provided by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology), now adds an engaging and fun representation of products featuring the world's favorite feathered friends. The Wild Republic Audubon Birds Clasp Purses ($9.50 each), which do not have bird call sounds, are an assortment of different birds, including a Bluebird and Cardinal, among other species.
