Plush toy is a hit!

The box arrived slightly dented but product inside was pristine. The board book is the standard size for toddler. My little one loved the plush caterpillar. It is not as soft or flexible as I thought it would be but hopefully this means it's sturdy. It is also bigger than I thought it would be considering it's a caterpillar but that is good for small hands, they can hold it easily.

My son distroyed his old board book and I needed a replacement. This was prefect...until my dog discovered the caterpillar plush toy. I did not intended to get another chew toy for my dog but in the end, it worked out for both kiddos (furry and not so furry).

I was expecting a bigger book and catapiller. They are so very small. No size details on the website. But my child is a big hungry catapiller fan so no matter the the size he will love it
