Hard plastic toys with flocking and clothes
Reviewed in the United States on May 7, 2019
With so many reviews with high star ratings, I thought I should check these out for my granddaughters. I thought these bears would be soft. They are not. The flocking is soft to the touch, but the plastic is hard underneath. Sort of like a ring box with a VERY short napped velveteen covering.
I am not sure how well the flocking will hold up to play or washing. Plastic action figures can survive bath time and dirt play. Plastic action figures can be tossed in the dishwasher in a lingerie bag. Being able to sanitize toys is something I look for in a toy purchase. Granted, not all toys can be tossed in a washing machine or dishwasher. Being able to keep toys clean is a criteria I consider when making a purchase.
These are cute. They are small--a nice size to carry around or stuff in a pocket. The small pieces could pose a choking hazard. These look like they could be a Happy Meal prize.
For my money, I prefer the Disney Store action figures without the flocking. My sons have original Star Wars plastic action figures that are around 40 years old. No flocking, just plastic. They have stood the test of time and rough play when the boys were small. I would not expect the flocked koala's to survive a lot of rough play.
I don't think these are worth the asking price. I do think they would be well received by a child.
The set can be broken apart and individual bears could be given as rewards.
I will keep this set. I do not plan to buy another.
