I originally bought this for my 1 year old for her birthday but her big sister loves it just a little more because she likes the three little pigs story. The pigs do squeek when you squeeze them but the wolf also has a hole at his mouth for his huffing and puffing. I love Melissa and Doug products and plan to keep this one in family for a long time. Very durable. But i did just buy it. Amazon is the better deal for this item because of free shipping and price. This is a toy they will play with for years. GREAT buy!!
