I saw some pictures of that wooden dodo on Flickr and I was curious to know where all those people were getting the dodos. I’m not sure about all, but MUJI was selling those dodos and the cute wooden animals toys on the session Toys and Children’s Gifts. Too bad I’m late, they are very pretty.
A friend, Avi Alkalay, was in Belgium last year and took those pictures of a store in Bruges (Brugge), Belgium. It’s probably some jewellery, but I couldn’t find any additional information about it. Maybe if I knew some words in Dutch I could had better – any – results. Anyway, a store called dodo with a dodo logo is cool enough, and I’m going to discover something one day, with some luck. Thanks for the photos Avi!
The dodos drink too! Ok, they don’t (didn’t), but they are they are in the logo of a beer from Réunion Bière Bourbon, also known as “La Dodo”. It’s a “blonde beer” (sorry if I’m wrong but I don’t know about beers, specially in English) produced and commercialized in Réunion by Bourbon breweries, where it’s the first product, the most known and the most bribed. Bière Bourbon has this nick/ surname, La Dodo, in reference to the bird from Mauritius island which is extinct and appears in the logo, as a smiling dodo. (From the Wikipedia article, and sorry about any problems on this translation)
From the English article:
The Brasseries de Bourbon (“Breweries of Bourbon”) is the only major producer of beer on Réunion Island, a French oversea department in the Indian Ocean formerly known as Bourbon Island.
The group was founded in 1962. The first product of the brasseries, and by far now their most sold and widely known, is the blonde lager Dodo, named after the now extinct bird (its official name is simply “Bourbon”). This beer is widely known because of its emblem of a smiling dodo, and the creole slogan La dodo lé la (The Dodo is here!), both displayed in colourful wall paintings on shops, snacks etc. selling the beer.
