Perfect Polly is a fake, plastic bird with a motion sensor that detects movement. When the sensor is activated, the "bird" chirps, and slightly moves its head and tail. That's it. There's really nothing more to it. I even had to look this thing up just to make sure this wasn't some sort of SNL-style fake commercial.
With that brief yet blunt introduction, here's an infomercial on Perfect Polly the Parakeet - the commercial where people with very low IQs sit around and pretend their very fake, very plastic bird is real.
That's nearly two full minutes of people sitting around talking and "playing" with a $15 fake bird. Gather round, children! We're going to pet this plastic toy and sink deeper into the depths of insanity!
The commercial claims that Perfect Polly is just as lively and fun as a real Parakeet. You know, if you forget about that whole fact that it's not a real bird. They even claim that Perfect Polly will "touch your heart" and "brighten any room in your home." The only way this bird will brighten rooms is if the kids chuck it in the fireplace because they asked for a real bird.
Perfect Polly is, by the Pet Rock’s standards, the perfect pet for those who do not want to take care of anything. It’s like having a Pet that died years ago but is still as annoying and has an off button. It may as well be dead because it feels nothing like a live bird with its hard plastic outer shell. I was expecting something more realistic like it said on the box, but only to be disappointed in how unrealistic it was. The Perfect Polly is not so perfect after all I’d recommend it to those who will only throw it away.
it is perfect never dies so you dont have to explain to your kids why you have to flush there pet down the toilet. just give them another set of batterys and no more tears.
I am concerned about "Perfect Polly", not being as "perfect" as they say. I'm thinking He/She is a down-right Perfect Scam!! It's been 2+ months since this Chronic-Insomniac-Extremely-Burned-Out Big-City-Injured (Line of Duty, Thank God!) Firefighter/Paramedic has ordered 2 "Perfect" Pollies. Yes, I appear to be as nutty & Depraved as any & all 900# 2A.M. Addicts. After all, I ordered them, whilst hubby & kids were fast-asleep...They (on the order tracking date) have changed the date 2x. It was changed in the end of July, To the date of the morning when I checked the website, to see what was taking so dang long!!?! I called again today (8/22/2013) and promised delivery by Monday8-26-13---8--28-13. I was even given a tracking # this time. I called the "Customer Service" # & was answered, both times, swiftly & in an " I'm Blowing You Off, like a piece of lint-on-my-sleeve" & by a woman to whom English was most definitely, not her first, or even her second language. (There's no surprise here after dealing with Dell etc...). This is sad for my youngest daughter, since I showed her a belated B-Day gift with which she could fill her cage from Tweet-Tweet who we set free after his broken wing mended & he had gained back strength etc... The 2nd Polly is a surprise-gift for my Mother-in-Law who is very busy, but adores all motion-activated Holiday decorations, and even year-round-self-animated critters. Any ideas on a refund or getting our Pollies soon? --Lisa & family
There is absolutely NOTHING lifelike about that piece of crap! The WINGS don't move! And it moves it's head an inch in one direction! Only one bird tweet featured in the commercial that becomes so annoying by the end each tweet feels like someone stabbing me in my ears! P.O.S.!!!!!!!!!!
Omg I sat here watching this commerical with my mouth to the floor!! Are these people serious, its made out of plastic. Whats next a plastic dog or cat that wags their tail!!!
I thought the same thing when I saw the ad. I wondered "what sort of ninnies buy this crap?". Then I remembered how popular the Pet Rock was...
OMG I feel the same way just saw this advertisement and had to Google it to see if it was serious or not!
@ScottKimball batteries - not batterys.
HaHaHa! There is positivity in The Deranged PlasticPollyParakeet! My youngest did lose her old pony (neither plastic, nor deranged), her Grandmother (The one that would've stomped Polly, or any other weird animated, mechanized stuffed animal-Holiday, or otherwise, especially if said "stuffy" made repetitive jingles, sentences, or tweets!), an old cat, an old dog, and 2 goldfish. All in 2 & 1/2 years. She, bravely set our rescued & healed starling free. (He still lives in our backyard with his first nest with ".Mommy Tweet" & their Babies- Tweet's sporting a day glow-green "ankle bracelet", so we know it's him who is swooping us & that it is not the start of some Hitchcockian apocalypse.) So, for now, I'm likin' the battery switch deal. They even include 4or5 extra batteries, for just such an occasion. This is really laughable, since Polly lives rooms away... I Never, Ever have to hear it or see it.
@Bunkyhorse145 should got it at the walmart or walgreens for cheap.
apparently, they sell them at walmart.
@Bunkyhorse145 you should ordered from amazon
@Bunkyhorse145 Unfortunately, we don't have any other methods to recommend that you haven't already tried. We sincerely wish you the best since you left us the most memorable and most hilarious comment in this site's history.

Dear MiaTalksTough. I LOVE your screen name & wish I were that creative with screen names. I'm very new at blogging & Ive seen some really clever & cool names. I'll need to think on that. Anyone can figure me out, if they know me. In response to your post, Thank You, "Mia"! But...
Oh noooooo... I just had to have 2 of the dang things, like, right then. : - ) -- Before they had them at Wal Mart (The Evil Empire)- where I hypocritically shop, because there IS no where else to shop where I live.) We are in the country & it's pretty rural. BTW I received the cage around 5-6 months after ordering The Deranged, Much-Debated Perfect Polly. It is crap. snap-together, low -quality plastic & is a lot smaller than "As Shown On T.V."... "But wait! There's more!..." But Ma-in-Law still adores it. So, Polly is happily ensconced, on his perch, & in his chinchy cage, right on her mantel, -- "Fromt & Center"! We did get extra batteries & no one has needed them. The "bird's" motions are so slight & the batteries are the (only) really high high quality-type-item..
And still, Ma-in-Law still shows her Polly to everyone who visits. She has tons of visitors, since she's a Good Person & a Dynamite Cook ( all, despite her Tres Bizarre Fetish for animated stuffed animals & singing toy flowers, & oh, Perfect Pollies).
It soothed my youngest's grief over our Tweet-Tweet. He is now healed, grown & has had two nests full of babies. His nest is in our birdhouse, with the same towel from his babyhood healing. He swoops us regularly. So, my BabyGirl has lost interest in "Polly". He'll be in our next yard sale & hopefully be a decent substitute to some other child who has 'rents like me, who won't have pets in cages, especially birds, born to fly. (My opinion, not meant to hurt people who give live pet birds safe, clean, happy, loving homes.) we have, here at "Happyville OTTB, Horse & Small Animal Rescue", 4 horses, 3 cats & 2 dogs- all Real Recues from "Death-Row"-- the meat buyer for the horses, the kill shelter in our nearest huge city's meanest streets. And the dogs, one dying runt & one off the street in the Murder Capitol of the USA (Per capita). I a,, simply too busy to care, properly, for a bird. Ok enough of my novel. (Next time, Mia & others will know not to talk to me ; - ( ... I can't stop talking, I don't get out much! LMFAO) & Thanks Again! Our Best Wishes-- Bunx & Family.
Thanks, David Rogers! I did receive our two Pollies. Finally, in September. Yes, they are deranged, but Ma-In-Law will ADORE hers. (A Left-Handed insult? HaHa!). My youngest likes to wake up & remember our old pal Tweet Tweet. He was a tough little guy, a starling with a broken wing. He endured a splint, us, a cage for his convalescence, and then our extra bathroom and (so ironic) a diet of CAT food before being set free. Dang! There was a lot. Of bird poopoo pour Moi to clean up! Also, wild birds carry a lot of potentially dangerous bacteria and parasites. I bleached for two days. Anyhow, still waiting on one Polly Cage. Thanks again, Dave! --Lisa & Live Rescue Zoo (+ one Deranged mechanized bird.)
@Bunkyhorse145 I dunno, I think bunkyhorse is pretty funny! mine is my twitter handle, you can find me there @miatalkstough I tweet all kinds of things nobody agrees with or likes but me. Your family sounds like a hoot. Enjoy your birdies. I will be getting mine at the local Wally mart soon as I have the time to go into a store, which no one actually does anymore, because the internet. Take care and thanks for the light reading :)
Oh & "Get 'em at Wal Mart.. For Cheap." How's about we go all kinds of Punny?." & Get 'em "CHEEP"!! LMFAO ; - )
