Just a bit taller than a rugby ball on its end, the Kororā is the world’s smallest (and cutest) penguin. And what a worker! It’ll spend all day in the ocean busily catching fish, then trudge up to 1.5km to their nests – in the dark – to hungry chicks!
Because of kiwis’ love for coastal property, many Kororā are now nesting under houses and even in stormwater pipes and attacks by dogs and other predators have sent their numbers into decline.

Our Kororā is:

31cm high by 20cm wide approximately 300g 
Easy to send our regular boxes are standard A4 size, measuring 31cm x 21 cm x 1cm
Same day dispatch on orders placed before 2pm on weekdays
Made locally in a family-owned factory, right here in  NZ
Crafted from 3mm Corten steel and designed to last a lifetime
Easy to install by inserting firmly into the ground, or simply wedging between two solid surfaces

Install Tip: If installing into a post or a hard surface, we've found most success by tapping the hammer inside the little penguin, between the feet. Kororās also love to be nestled in the grass, or a flower pot! 

Our birds are designed with 3mm CorTen steel to form a protective patina that deepens and strengthens with the seasons. This patina will deepen in shade over the years until it reaches a deep brown/charcoal black hue.

This self-sealing aspect of CorTen steel provides a quality guarantee of up to 100 years, ensuring that our product lasts a lifetime and remains completely corrosion resistent.

What might initially resemble generic rust is simply the air and water-tight patina forming over a six month period, so don’t panic! Your Metalbird is doing exactly what it’s been designed to do, and this patina will protect the steel from any further damage and disintegration.

CorTen steel does not require any treatments, oils or chemical additives and is therefore extremely environmentally friendly.

MADE FROM PREMIUM CORTEN STEEL

Corten Steel or ‘Weathering Steel’ is used in high-end exterior architecture, for good reason. Exposed to the elements, within weeks it develops a patina that seals the steel and preserves it for decades. It also leaves a beautiful even colouring that will get darker over the years.
