Angry Birds Live might need some size adjustments. By analyzing iPhone game play video, physicist Rhett Allain was able to calculate the physics of Angry Birds:

Using tracker video analysis and physics calculations, secrets of the Angry Birds worlds are revealed: The angry birds projectile motion is traced to show that these birds live in a world with no air resistance (no need to provide additional horizontal force).

And if they live on a world with Earth’s gravity, the Angry Birds sling shot size would be measured at 5 meters (16.4 foot), with the birds themselves at 80cm (2.6 foot) high.

Looks to be the same size as the animatronics Pixar Wall-e at Disney:
