I have been a Nintendo fan ever since I was a child, and one of the first games I ever played was the Super Mario series. From the moment I first controlled Mario on Yoshi, this little green dinosaur, I fell in love. In my opinion, Yoshi is adorable and cute, and perhaps the friendliest little Dinosaur you'll ever think of in games, TV or film. I had harped on for ages about getting a Yoshi plush for my collection of Nintendo merchandise, and finally I acquired one as a gift from my fiance.
The Yoshi plush is an official licensed product from Nintendo, and the small tag on it's bottom bears the Nintendo seal of approval to prove this, and you should therefore have no doubts that this is not official. This tag is easily snipped off without damaging your plush if you feel that you do not want to have it on your plush anymore. The plush measures in at approximately 8 and a half inches tall, which is just the right size to sit on your bed, display on a shelf, or give to your young one to carry to and from anywhere. Wherever you choose to put it, Yoshi manages to sit upright on his own without falling over, due to the substantial amount of plushing throughout, and beans in the feet and bottom to weigh it down. You can pick up this Yoshi plush from Amazon for £11.08, which isn't a bad price, although for his small size, it is probably able to be picked up much cheaper than that on sites such as eBay.
The plush is also very adorable looking, and looks exactly like Yoshi from the Super Mario games. Like all Nintendo plushes, this Yoshi plush is suitable for young children. The tag states that Yoshi can be enjoyed from the age of 2+, and those buying for young children will see that it is a very safe plush to give a child. There are no small parts which could come loose in wear and tear and children's play. Every part of Yoshi is made up of cotton, including his eyes. A lot of other plushes use plastic eyes which the pupils are often painted onto. Over time I have found that the paint begins to come off, and the eyes get looser, especially if you have children prone to chewing their toys. Therefore it is comforting to know that there is nothing of this sort on this cute little dinosaur.
As Christmas is just around the corner, this would make a lovely stocking filler for any Nintendo fan, as it is not only a high quality product, but also very adorable. Children will love it's soft feel, and you can take comfort in knowing that everything in it is safe. There are no parts which children can swallow, as the outside is mainly made up of cotton and velour fabrics. The stitching is excellent, and so this plush should last a very long time before you see any little rips or tears (if ever). So if you know someone who loves Yoshi, I recommend giving them one of these plushes. It is an adorable, high quality, long lasting Nintendo product!
Summary: A cute, cuddly, high quality and long lasting Nintendo product!
