Rated 2 out of 5 by mom@home Surprisingly poor quality
We own several of the large/huge Melissa & Doug stuffed animals and the quality has always been top notch. Looking at the images online I expected this bear to be soft, with a dense nice fur. Sadly the fur is horrible. It feels scratchy and rough and you can see places where it's barely furry (ie you can see the backing material). It also sheds like crazy, even big chunks... I'd seriously think this was counterfit if I hadn't read other similar reviews. I can only guess they changed manuf. since older reviews sound very positive. I'd honestly return it but my 2 daughters dont' care that they are covered in bear fur, they love him because he's so huge... I just worry about how long it will last since I can already see several places missing allt he fur and they've only had it 2 days!

We ordered this stuffed panda bear for our 18 month old son. He loves wrestling with his stuffed animals and this bear looked so big and soft. The bear arrived 2 days before Christmas. Immediately out of the packaging the bear was shedding - fibers and small chunks. With no time to return the item before Christmas morning, we did our best to brush and vacuum off the loose fur - the bear continues to shed. With the apparent poor construction, it appears we'll be looking to return the item and purchase a replacement oversized stuffed animal for our son (likely from another retailer where we can see/touch the item before buying). This was a surprising issue given the price and glowing reviews from others who've purchased this panda bear.

This was given to one of our 4-yr-old twin daughters (with the other receiving the huge stuffed alligator, dubbed 'Allie'). It was discovered Christmas morning and immediately dubbed 'Colin'--no clue why, was sat on in order for her to open the remainder of her gifts. She and her sister took them to Grandma and Grandfather's several hours later because we were unable to separate them from their new beloved stuffed 'friends'. I would buy this many times over, but since they've proven so DURABLE, haven't needed to replace them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by momma&nurse my child loves this!!!!!
I bought this toy for my son's 8th birthday. He loves panda bears and has a small collection of stuffed pandas. This "Giant" toy was well worth every dollar. Very large and durable, both my children frequently jump on it and it's held up well! This toy is much larger than it appears online. Fits fully in our recliner here at home. I definetly recommend this toy!

I absolutely love my Giant Panda! I received it as a gift for Christmas this past year, and I absolutely adore it. It's very well made, soft and cuddly, and huge. Everything I could want in a stuffed animal.
