The Kid Should See This

Birds with human arms and hands

Watch more with these video collections:

What would birds look like if they had human arms and hands like something out of Roald Dahl’s The Magic Finger? Would they play guitar or carry umbrellas? Would they wave their arms at their friends? Would they take selfies?

The birds with arms photoshop trend started around 2009 on a dedicated community Tumblr and has since become a popular theme on other social networks. This short curlykidlife video uses animated effects to bring these amusements to life.
