This neuron is really awesome, it's cute and fun. Although mine is often accused of being some sort of elephant crab thing when I cover one of the eyes most of the medical professionals I work with can identify it precisely. I've tried to rub two of them together to make thoughts but it hasn't worked quite yet. I am disappointed by the fact that every neuron is identical thus even the 4 whisps at the axon terminals are the same. You really don't need more than one of these.

When I first found this product on Amazon, I laughed out loud! What a cool idea with the potential for so many teachable moments! I bought this little guy for my classroom, and I know he will be a big hit in my upcoming critical thinking / reading / writing classes. (I could see him used in Health and Science classes as well as other subjects as well.) The product I received was brand new in a plastic bag; it had a clever info card attached. I felt like the product was well-made, even with his wispy little parts that another reviewer mentioned! This neuron / brain cell has sweet, big eyes that seem alert--like he is taking everything in! LOL I enjoyed the little information card, which offered some fun facts and trivia about neurons. (The information makes the card worth keeping.) It also stated how many times larger this doll was than the actual real neurons in the brain. I noticed some reviewers were concerned about the size of this neuron doll--being smaller than expected. But, hey, he is LARGE compared to other neurons of the real variety! :)

My only TINY gripe about the product is the orange cloth tags near the bottom of the new doll. (If Amazon publishes my picture on the product page, you can see this!) I understand why they are there---identification and authenticity of product. However, that orange stands out beside that gray like a beacon. I'm thinking about cutting them off, so he will look like the picture on the Amazon page.

In summary, I am impressed with this product and its potential. Teachers: buy this product if you want to talk about the brain or thinking in your class. Neuron will be an unusual, likable, memorable prop. Go on! Give your neuron a name and let him promote the cultivation and care of real live brain cells and brains!

This is a fun doll that makes for geeky humor. I returned the first one because it had a bit of a hole in the material. The second one I got was fine. It's made in China. This is meant to stay in a room, not to be handled very aggressively. Wish it were made in the USA. Otherwise, it's a great gift with some educational as well as comic value.

I bought this for my boyfriend, who is studying for his surgical board exams.

My only complaint is that the wispy things branching off the axon terminals are a bit odd, given how thick and plush the rest of the toy is.

Got this and the Giant Microbes Egg Cell (Human Ovum) as gifts for my clinical mentors in medical school (one is a psychiatrist and one is an OB-GYN) and they love them! The OBGYN said she is going to use the ovum plushie in her future talks. These were wrapped in plastic so they arrived clean and with the tag attached that describes the organism and what it does. I'll be getting the MRSA superbug plush for a white elephant party with my classmates.

As per other previous reviews, the plush was smaller than I anticipated, but not by much. The axonal area (the banded, middle area of the plush) is not rigid, so this plush will not stand up if leaned against a surface. The material it is made of is soft and lightly textured. The stitching, fixation of the eyes, and threads on the axon terminals are all well done. As a result of it's material quality and construction I'd anticipate this plush to be rather durable. It should easily stand up to the rough treatment of a child over time, although I wouldn't anticipate it surviving more than a few rounds of tug-o-war with a medium sized dog.

I believe anyone in the neurosciences or medical profession would appreciate this well made plush as a gift.

Got this for my nerdy friend and she loved it. Super cute, great quality, and looks exactly as pictured. Make sure you look at the measurements before you purchase it because it is quite small, but it's the perfect size to display on a desk or bookshelf. Definitely a conversation starter! Highly recommend for the science nerd in your life.
