Super Giant Eeyore Review:
I am going to start this by saying that yes this is a review about a super GIANT Eeyore soft Toy and yes I did buy this for a 24 year old woman.
So last year (2010), I was in a new relationship and wanted to treat my partner to something crazy that I knew they would want, I went round and round in circles and then came across a super giant Eeyore and thought how big could it be and she already has hundreds of them, then I saw the price (see for yourself on the Disney store) but in the end I decided to take the plunge. The Disney store to its credit was really good and allowed to pick when I wanted delivery (quite a big deal with a product this size as I has a feeling it wouldn't fit through the post box).
I ordered it and picked my date, which was sometime in November, the product arrived and only the other ½ was home, annoying the box arrived with a rip and I received an e-mail with a tail poking out of the hole. I got home and the box was still intact but unconfined excitement and a total lack of storage space meant it had to be opened. This was greeted with very adult dancing around the room and yippee after yippee.
Once opened I was glad to see there was no more damage than the usual removable Eeyore tail and that this thing certainly is a beast, it completely dwarfs the cat who much to my dismay loves climbing all over it and Eeyore looked quite happy when buckled in on a trip up to London to be shown off to her parents.
The Eeyore itself:
The toy itself is the usual Eeyore style and I know you can get different colour styles (she has them all) and I think this one is in the nicest range of them all, it is the blue with purple and as I previously mentioned the tail it attached by Velcro (and string) so it can be removed.
The material it is made of is very soft but also seems to be quite durable as it has coped very well with the cat jumping on it. The dimensions of the toy are SUPER GIANT, I mean I can try to hug this thing and I can't get my arms round it, height wise it is no quite so gigantic but for a soft toy is still the biggest that I have seen and sits at just under a meter tall. I have also just been informed that it is very nice to hug it round the neck as long as you don't squeeze too hard as you wouldn't want to strangle him.
Despite its size this soft toy does still have its uses other than as a climbing frame for the cat it is also good for cuddling when ill or lonely (so I have been told as I can't admit to having done this myself).
Realistically this is not a toy that your child is going to be able to cuddle when they are ill or anything, but I imagine it is great for them to play on and is sure to make every other Eeyore fan envious.
It is a great toy but expensive and a bit impractical but marvellous at the same time.
