Giveaway & Review: Douglas Cuddle Toy Plush [CLOSED]

If you read my blog regularly, then you know that every member of our family is an animal-lover. We have a whole zoo of animals, both live and plush. When I was offered the opportunity to choose one furry friend to review from the Douglas Cuddle Toy's line of stuffed dogs, I just had to choose Bernie Beagle.

I chose this stuffed Beagle dog because he reminded me of our now 15yr old Beagle Buddy when he was a playful puppy. The look in Bernie's eyes, his cocked head, his playful stance, and his perked up ears just won my heart.

What I thought about this plush Beagle as a parent:

1) I love that the toy designer gave this plush animal so much personality. It really captures the true nature of a Beagle puppy.

2) I like that this puppy is rated for children ages 18mos and up. The eyes are anchored and the nose is soft and sewn in. There are no choking hazards on this plush toy.

3) This toy is extremely soft and huggable. I would have kept him for myself if the children had not already discovered him.

4) The Beagle's feet are slightly weighted so that he remains upright without any problems.

5) I like that all Douglas Cuddle Toy products are inspected multiple times between the time they leave the assembly line to the time they are received in the warehouse. I also like that they are tested by independent labs to ensure that they meet or exceed government safety standards.

What my 2.5yr old son thought about Bernie Beagle:

1) As you can see, he thought this plush toy was extremely soft and cuddly.

2) This toy was very realistic as far as plush toys go. My son had no problems pretending this toy was a real dog.

I am extremely pleased with the level of quality, softness, and detail in this plush toy. In fact, this Beagle is so realistic that our cats are actually a bit afraid of him.
