Plush Long Arm Zoo Animals
Kids loved these little things! These were a great hit. Nice variety and very good quality construction. My son made a belt out of 3 of them. He has slept with them every night after receiving this as a prize. I would highly recommend this item for your zoo or safari themed party.

Not as cute as I'd thought
I bought these to use in a jungle theme baby shower. I should have read the comments. most of them seemed "off". Even with some fluffing the lion's mane was no where near as full as the one in the photo. Their arms barely were long enough to hang them where we'd planned and the littlest tug/bump made them fall. I was a little embarrassed to be using them as the prize gifts for the baby shower games. Fortunately there were a couple toddlers who didn't mind taking the extra ones.
Also as others mentioned, I didn't realize the size included the arms being up...

Disappointed when I opened them
I bought these for a party favor for my daughter's zoo themed birthday. I was disappointed in how small and they are not as cute as pictured. I accidently ordered 1 instead of 2 so I am buying TY beanie babies for the other half and giving these to the younger children. I was just disappointed.

Was disappointed in the size of the animals thought they were very small for what we were purchasing them for. To me, the 10" would mean from to head to toe and not from hanging arms to toe.

Good "critter" for a childrens game
Looks well made, trusting they will be tough as they will become object in a children's game.

We gave these out as favors for a birthday party, wrapped in animal-print bandanas. My older child chose these and was a bit disappointed when they came that their arms didn't extend as far over their heads as they seem to in the photo. I was a bit disappointed that the described 7.5" included arms and legs. I did not measure but I would have estimated their overall length as more like 6".
Some of the faces seemed a little off to me; not wrong, maybe, but not as cute as pictured. The fabric was a little cheap-feeling, but that seems right considering what we paid.
The kids all seemed happy with the animals they got. They enjoyed velcroing them together and around their wrists, flopping their arms and legs around, etc.
Comparison: my other kid chose the Valentine safari animals and I chose the 'suede' realistic safari animals. These and the Valentine safari animals had similarly cheap-feeling fabric and chintzy printing (giraffe spots and tiger stripes), and the kids seemed very happy with them both. The 'suede' animals felt nicer to me but the kids didn't seem as impressed with them as I was.

Used for Jungle Themed Baby Shower
These were very cute. I hung them from the ceiling with vines and rope and they were very appropriate for a baby shower with a jungle theme. They were a little smaller than I thought they would be but maybe I miscalculated. The quality was certainly appropriate for the price. A good purchase.

Not the best, ok tho
I ordered them for a birthday party. They are cute, but the faces are very cheap looking. They were in good shape, though. The faces were kind of smashed up.
