Flamingo Return

Ever since my article in ASLM appeared folks have been emailing me as to what will ever happen to our beloved Flamingo; will they be back, where can I buy them etc. Well after talking with the few remaining folks in Leominster things are still up in the air [yes pun intended].

There is a large effort to bring a new flamingo to market made in the town of the original beloved Pink Flamingo. This new bird will be a total new design apart from the original Don Featherstone. Not wanting to post all the nasty legal mumbo jumbo, looks like we may never see the original back in production, and I have been getting mixed reports from Keith Boisvert Co-Owner and V.P. of Operations, The Leominster Flamingo Company, LLC. As things develope and I have accurate confirmed information I will be happy to share with all!

A member of a Labrador Retriever forum I belong to has business dealings with the company that purchased the rights and casts to the Don Featherstone originals. Here is what he was able to find out:

"Here's the scoop on Genuine Pink flamingos.

Faster Form (HMC Intl.), the new owners of the Original Pink Flamingo, will begin manufacturing the classic bird in the fall of this year. They are not sure at this time if they will be marketed direct or through their distributors. They expect them to be available in the spring. Rest assured they will be made in Frankfort,NY in the U.S.of A.

I spoke to the MFG engineer directly, no PR run around."
