Gund Sesame Street Big Bird 14″ Plush
great plush version of Cookie Monster I happen to be a ‘big kid,’ that is, someone who bought this for the sake of adding to my collection of items that remind me of my childhood when I’m feeling blue (and feeling perhaps bluer than Cookie Monster himself.) I can tell you that this plush delivers.It is extremely soft, which Gund toys are always famous for. It is of the feel of a bean bag, sort of cuddly and indeed under-stuffed in areas to make it that way, with some beans or whatever in the tush. The material is outstanding, sort of shaggy like we know of this character. It is not like other ones I have seen, where the fur lies close to the body. It’s more keeping to the Cookie we see on TV. The colour is an exceptional one of bright blue. The eyes give the illusion of those famous google-eyes we all grew up seeing, one up, one sort of tilted down. The mouth is great, because it is partly open, like when Cookie speaks. This toy would probably be great for little ‘cookie-parties’ with your child. I can see a youngster giving a little cloth or plastic ‘cookie’ to him, and this is possible with that open mouth.The arms are great, because when positioned in just such a way, they sort of fold around your shoulder when you hold him. They are the lightest part of the design, I think, for that reason. A great thing for a child to hold.Overall, this is a fantastic item. I smile to think of the simple joys it will bring to children who receive it. For me, it does well to remind me of my own childhood years of relishing Sesame Street and this unforgettable character.
