Hannes says, As a child this was my most prized stuffed animal, and I had a ton of them. I saw it at a toy store with my mum and I remember we both got very excited about it.
When I look at it, it reminds me of my mother's refined taste in silly things. Its also a spirit animal. Every ridiculous looking bird is my spirit animal, and this kiwi is kind of a totem to all of them.
