Very realistic, with a few flaws
on April 7, 2013
The picture of this is is a pretty cool-looking stuffed animal. Definitely not your run-of-the mill cutesy toy. With that in mind, I made something of a misstep buying this for a 4-year-old as a Christmas present. That's TOTALLY on me, no stars taken away for not appealing to such a little kid. I should have known my audience better. But what I was really not too happy about was that the owl was sort of misshapen, and his fur was stuck going crazy directions. This made it really hard to tell what the creature even was, I assume this happened because of its packaging. The two little tufted horns were flattened, not poking up like the picture shows. So, it lost its appeal even as an unusual toy. Plus, it's body is just awkward. If it's going to sit on a shelf - great (although mine also won't stand up, it just topples over). If it's actually going to be a kid's toy - not so much. It's stiff and boxy.
I love the way this looks in the picture, and if my critter resembled this, I'd be a lot happier with it.
