Having bought the Sea Turtle for my grandson, I bought this Penguin for my two year old granddaughter, her brother. This was my first purchase from Melissa & Doug which was highly recommended by my daughter, a counselor at an elementary school. Not really knowing what to get a two year old I relied on this Penguin being a Melissa's pick so I felt I couldn't go wrong. It is big, well made, and hopefully a gift to last for years to come. As for the Sea Turtle for my grandson, I am curious as to what name will be given to the Giant Penguin.

I picked up "George" the Pirate when I was on vacation without my 3 boys. He has been a member of the family ever since. My kids range from 3 yrs to 13 yrs and all three of them have fun with "George". He comes with us on outings and has his own photo album of places he has visited. He's been through many trials and remains intact. I would recommend this toy to anyone and everyone.
My wife saw this at someone's home and picked it up and hugged it. She loved it and its soft and squishy plus pretty large, like 3 feet from nose to tail and great coloring. Anyway, the way she carried on about it, I put it on my list for one of her Christmas presents and she was really surprised and pleased. It now has a prominent place when our bed is made up.
