Very disappointed in the appearance and sound. Does not look anything like the catalog picture - just a ragged mop. Can hardly find the eyes. The Jesus Loves Me song is squeeky, high pitched and way too fast. Not at all what I pictured. Can't possibly sing with it to your child. Also, very difficult to find the button to push for the song.
The little dog was nice enough, soft and fluffy and cute, but I should have read the reviews first, as others voiced the same disappointment as I felt I wanted a puppy who sang "Jesus loves me", so my little grandson would hear those words as he drifted off to sleep hugging his "puppy", instead it only played a very rapid tune of the song that was over in a matter of seconds, and it isn't even that easy to turn it on as one has to hunt for the button to push, which is inside the dog. So I was somewhat disappointed.
This "puppy" will bring joy to my 7 month old Grandson and his Mother this Christmas. The dog is soft, cute and safe (e.g. no small parts to come loose), however I was a bit disappointed to see that the push button to play music had to be marked to find it and once you remove the marker, a tag, it is difficult to locate.
Just PERFECT for my one-year toddler great grandson! Soft, cuddly, lightweight. Granddaughter keeps it in crib for now and he goes right off to sleep with "Jesus Loves Me"... He had small Teddy from birth that played "Jesus Loves Me"... :)
