Pros: Huge, fun, soft
I purchased the 36 inch tall Barney Plush stuffed animal for my son who is 19 months old now. I just got it a month ago. I saw it nd knew it would be a great item for my son to enjoy. It was an impulse purchase I would say, because I was not looking to buy any thing like this. I just spotted it and grabbed it as fast as I could for y son.
Where I bought it and how much it cost:
I found the 36 inch tall Barney Plush stuffed animal on the Ebay web site. I won it in the Ebay auction at literally the very last second. I ended up winning it for $8.00 with $5.00 for the shipping costs. That brought my total spendings to only $13.00 for this huge stuffed animal. I found the price to be great. This was brand new with the tags still on it. I had seen it selling from another seller for $40.00, so I feel that I got a great bargain price for this Barney.
The 36 inch tall Barney Plush stuffed animal that I purchased for my son is like a smaller replica of Barney. He is a more realistic one than most of the ones that I have seen before. He is purple, with a bright green belly, and yellow toe tips just like the "real Barney". He is obviously 36 inches tall in height.
This Barney is made of cotton and polyester fibers. He is stuffed very well. Almost over stuffed. He sits of lays in the position that you put him in. He does not just flop over. His tail is long and thick. It does prevent him from sitting all the way back up against a wall or chair. But this is not an issue that is bothersome.
Because my son is only 19 months old. This Barney is bigger then he is! I would say quite a few inches taller. My son loves hugging Barney. He even sits up against him while he watches television. And some times he sits up against him or holds his hand while I read stories to him at story time. He lays down on him and every thing. This is certainly not a stuffed animal he can take to bed with him, I have had to fight him on that a few times. But Barney would just take up more space then my son does in his bed.
My son likes to take Barney with us on car rides. He wrestles him on the floor and just has a blast playing with him. I would say the fun factor on this toy for my son is very high. With the best part being that there is no noise!
This Barney is safe for ages 12 months and over. It has no detachable parts on it what so ever. All with the exepction of the tag that is on him when you purchase him.
This Barmey is not machine washable. Not because he would ruin. But, because he is way too big for the washing machine. But he can be surface washed very easily with a damp cloth. I have done this many times with just a little bit of soapy water. He comes out clean every time and the texture of his body has not changed from doing so.
My thoughts and recommendation:
The 36 tall Barney plush animal was a great purchase that I made. I am very gkad that I chose to buy it. I am also greatful for the price that I got it for. I was really lucky with this purchase. My son loves his Barney very much. He is a huge fan of Barney to begin with. I enjoy to the fullest the fact that Barney makes no noise. It is a rare find today, to get a toy that your child enjoys that makes no noise. I am very impressed with this Barney. Like I said it looks more real then all the other ones that I have seen in the recent years. I do highly recommend it.
