I have been delighted with this bear! So much so that I bought 2 more for my other children as they liked the one I purchased for my youngest so well. I was worried these bears would not be cuddly as I had seen some other fur bears thru out the years which had stiff bodies despite their soft fur. When I posed this question to Alpaca Directs excellent customer service, I was assured the bear was quite huggable and that I would not be disappointed. Well, they knew what they were talking about and have offered an excellent product for all ages with this bear. It is just the right size for anyone who likes soft things of comfort- from young children to folks in their 90's. I do not think there is a person who would not find this bear wonderful and comforting. Even those who collect stuffed toys will find this bear irristible! My children take this bear to bed with them and I find them holding onto it in their sleep. The body is plush with the softest fur you can imagine and it is extremely cuddly and pliable. All in all, I am totally delighted with my purchases and would give this bear the highest of marks for quality and companionship. Anyone who holds this bear will find they have difficulty putting it down! Excellent Transaction in every way and Alpaca Direct's customer service is the best:)They offer super fast shipping and awesome products all around:)Truly a top-notch company with products that exceed the highest of standards! I will be shopping here again!
