My little girl saw the Scholastic video of Corduroy after reading the book (with Mama). She fell in love with him! She had a dream about Corduroy lost in the department store and tearfully told me that she "just had to find him to take care of him." Such a loving girl...I searched for just the right Corduroy to give her. Many are cheaply made, aren't true to the book pictures, or have sweaters (go figure) instead of real corduroy overalls. This one seemed the best. We received him today, and my daughter was thrilled! I had him gift wrapped for her with a message from Corduroy. She beamed with delight! The bear is even better than I envisioned. He is very well-constructed, with great eyes and real corduroy overalls. It's fun that they hide one of his buttons for the children to find...very magical. His size is 13 inches, and just perfect for a toddler. I'm really pleased! Also, the Amazon gift wrap was well-worth the money. Corduroy arrived in a large blue faux-suede-like bag with a silky golden ribbon. It was well done.
