Christmas Wishes: No Surprises for Koala

In the run-up to Christmas, we are interviewing a number of our favourite characters to ask what is at the top of their Christmas wish list. We have already had Harley and Rudolph, so let’s meet this koala!

Koala shaking presents

Everybody meet koala with her present 

Our koala friend, does not like uncertainty or surprises. While she loves presents, he does not like the guessing game they represent. As seen here, she likes to shake presents as she is so desperate to know what is inside!

So we asked, what's your wish?

This koalas wish relates to a topic you may have heard in the news recently. It is is the king of all kilograms and is called the International Prototype of the Kilogram (IPK). Later this month (November), there is going to be a vote about whether or not to replace this single physical example with an electric current. But, koala tells us, she wants the IPK to be replaced - so she can have it! The idea of a certain weight, with no ambiguity, is her great desire. Currently, it is held inside a vault within the Louis XIV Pavillon de Breteuil, outside Paris, where she cannot reach it. But maybe Santa can? Fingers crossed!
