User Rating: Excellent
Pros:Good likeness to Perry, Very soft and cuddly
Cons:Eyes are a little weird; Doesn't do much
The Bottom Line: The 9 Inch Plush Perry the Platypus figure makes an excellent cuddle or play pal for Phineas and Ferb fans!
One of the in jokes on the hit Disney animated series, Phineas and Ferb, is that their pet platypus, Perry, seems like a "do nothing" pet, but is really a secret agent that defeats evil every day. As one of the first Phineas and Ferb toys to be released, our Disney Phineas and Ferb 9 Inch Plush Figure Perry the Platypus is highly cherished by my kids, but at the end of the day, he's just a platypus and really doesn't do much.

This incarnation of Perry is in his pet (a.k.a not Agent P) form, which means he is about nine inches long from bill to tail, with his two buggy eyes popping out the sides of his head, a very soft blue-green body with feet sticking out downward and a wide flat beaver-like orange tail in the back.
When we first got Perry, all three of my kids enjoyed arguing over who got to play with him, but the one who has really formed a bond with him over the past year is my two and a half year old. Unlike some stuffed animals, Perry's eyes are not hard plastic, they are soft and stuffed, just like the rest of his body. This leaves nothing painful if someone waves Perry around. He makes good use of the term "plush" by being very soft to stroke or cuddle with, and my son went through a phase where he needed Perry to go to bed with him.
If Perry gets dirty, you can supposedly throw him in the washer, but to retain his look and feel, I would recommend spot-cleaning first.
While the novelty of our Perry the Platypus has worn off a bit in the past year, he still gets pulled out to watch Phineas and Ferb with us, or to just play in whatever game my kids have created with their ten million stuffed animals. If your child, or one you are shopping for, is a Phineas and Ferb fan and would enjoy a stuffed animal as a light cuddle buddy or a cute shelf item, I would highly recommend the Disney Phineas and Ferb 9 Inch Plush Figure Perry the Platypus doll. I bought him in a two for $12 deal, and have never given his value a second thought.
This, my 600th review, is both Lean-n-Mean and a part of the Third Annual All Things Disney Write Off. I encourage you to check them both out and join in the fun!
