Angry birds and the Valentine’s pendulum. Rhett Allain, Wired 2/14/11

Does this cupid-pig move like a realistic pendulum? If the above answer is yes, then does the gravitational field for that motion match with the projectile birds? Does this motion fall under the small-angle approximation?

How does the green angry bird work? – Advanced Placement Physics.
Rhett Allain, Wired 4/25/11
“How does this thing work? What is its motion like after it is tapped? Does it have a constant acceleration? Does the post-tap acceleration depend on when it was tapped?”
