I brought this TY Cheddar The Mouse toy for my dad off Ebay because we all joke about him being like a mouse because he eats so much cheese! lol I paid £6.00 for the toy and was happy with it when it came because it's a good size and I knew my dad would see the funny side.
He did and now Cheddar sits on a shelf in the kitchen! The toy is about 6ins tall and looks very mouse like, it's got grey fur that is mega soft so even though a lot of people collect TY toys this one is lovely for playing with too.
The piece of cheese Cheddar is holding is made out of a soft rubber and that's a nice contrast against the soft furry material. Cheddar is very well made and his legs, arms and eyes are all sewn on very tight so they're not likely to be pulled off. I reckon kids of any age could play with this toy and not damage him or themselves.
Cheddar's bum is filled with beans and that's what makes it a beanie toy and not just any old soft toy. It's good because it gives him a bit of extra weight and also means he sits up straight if you've brought him to display and not play with. The beans also mean he's a bit more interesting to play with because he can he held comfortable and also thrown if that's what you like to do with your soft toys! lol
I think this is deffo the cutest TY beanie I've seen and it's got the cutest name too! Cheddar is a perfect name for a mouse and one that little kids will get too, some of the beanies have got names that don't tie in with their look or character but this one does big time.
Recommended..... for cheese or mouse lovers!!!
