Rated 1 out of 5 by Amber Penguin Plush Toy Item#2122
My daughter likes this stuffed animal because of its size, but it is not durable and is literally coming apart at the seams. She keeps it mainly to look at and it looks in perfect condition, but I just noticed two holes in the seams and I would expect more to come soon. I think Melissa and Doug's quality is slipping a bit and this is not the first time I have heard of this happening. I contacted customer service, but they said there is nothing they can do and judging by the pictures I sent them "the holes should be able to be stitched up myself". I expected more from Melissa and Doug. I would not recommend this product unless you plan on fixing this toy yourself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kinder Teacher Use it for unit on penguins
I use this awesome penguin during my penguin unit in kindergarten. The kids walk in the room and see this HUGE penguin and immediately go bonkers. They played with him every single day and were so sad when the penguin unit was over. It is almost as tall as most five-year-olds. I also love that it looks like an actual penguin and not a toy. Kids (and most adults) don't know that some penguin breeds are actually huge! That's why I love the size of this penguin.

bought as a personal "good luck mascot" to cheer on the the Pittsburgh Penguins during their quest for the 2009 Stanley Cup...and NOW everyone seems to want one. They love the size and realistic quality and how adorable he is.

I gave the penguin as a Christmas present to my nephew. A couple of days later, he wanted to bring it over to my house. It is so like a colorful empire style penguin.
