My 6 year old has wanted this for 2 years now ... finally broke down to get it (he has a million stuffed animals, really didn't need one more, esp this big), and he absolutely Loves it! Very happy with the size and quality.
This was my first order with Melissa & Doug's site and it was for my grandson. His mother, my daughter, is a counselor at an elementary school said that Melissa & Doug are a well known and respected company in the teacher's and children community. It is a Christmas gift so the joy is yet to come. The turtle is big, well made, and hopefully a keepsake for a four year old's bed for many years to come. As I told my daughter he may play with many other toys but this should help him go to sleep every night. He of course will have to come up with a name for his Sea Turtle and there in lies the real magic of this gift.
My four year old son received this today for Christmas and it was a major hit! He loves stuffed animals and has a giraffe that he really loves in particular. He received this from his aunt and uncle and immediately ran and jumped on its back! He is about 30 pounds and the giraffe held him up with no problem. It is a beautiful giraffe and very well made...sturdy.
