" Best Christmas present ever! " as reported by my 4 1/2 year old grand neice. I met several family members at a restaurant & brought her present with. To her surprise the wrapped gift was huge....her face lit up like a bright morning sunrise, as she exclaimed "It's a sitting firedog! I have never seen one." After unwrapping the Melissa & Dougie Dalmation she sat him in the both with us. People walking by thought he was real & had to do double takes. My neice begged her mother to buy him a real collar. The Dalmation is so life like it even has jowles. The Dalmation is always a conversation topic when company realizes he is not real. My neice LOVE her Dalmation & to make it even more special to her, her grandfather is Chief of the local fire department. This was my first Melissa and Dougie stuffed animal.
At the very same moment that my 5-year-old grandson's parents were saying "Wow...........that's a large stuffed animal", my grandson tore away the Christmas wrapping paper on Christmas eve, looked at it's big adorable face, started giggling, and then slung it over his shoulder, all the time laughing, to run into the den to show it off to other relatives. When he returned, he promptly tossed it on the floor, started giggling again, and pounced on it's back like he was ready to ride it if it tried to escape. Although his parents are still concerned about "finding room for it" in their small home, I say they're downright lucky to have such a fun playmate for a child who's just the right age to love it!
