I just want to tell u that my Ava loves Ollie. She loves him unlike any other stuffed animal. My first child, Viviana fell in love with her little bunny blanket from the beginning. She calls it her Nino. She needs to carry it everywhere and needs it for naps. When we had ava, I saved some of the animal blankets for her and the dolls, etc. I tried to see which one to gravitate to, but she is very content and never needed or wanted any of them. She’s almost 2 years old. She’s always preferred her blankie only. Ever since we got Ollie, she has developed an attachment to him. She wants to carry him around and gets excited when we ask her where Ollie is. She even started asking for Ollie before bed! This is huge. So for 2 years she hasn’t fell in love with or gotten attached to any toy, but she is with Ollie. We love Ollie, his name, his little rattle and crinkly noises, and all his exquisite colors!
This stuffed animal is so soft and plush, made of great material for a fair price ! Also love the bright fun colors used for Ollies feathers , and I know my nieces and nephews do too :) Great buy for babies and toddlers!
Love the timely production and delivery. Also love the Inkling and book quality. My boy enjoys having a playmate with his story time.
Ollie may look different than your typical plush toy, but when Native needs a friend, Ollie is there. Ollie's bright colors are perfect for Native's brain stimulation. Ollie's different textures are not only stimulating, but great for cuddling when Native wants a hug, and great for teething (wings and legs) when he needs to soothe his gums. When Ollie dances a silly jig, Native laughs with excitment at the rattling bell-like sound. Obviously Ollie looks different, but it helps fuel Native's creativity and imagination at an early age.
We got this through the Kickstarter fund and my girl loves it! The book is great and the plush is even better. Love it!
My infant liked reading the book and as she has reached toddlerhood she LOVES Ollie. She matched Ollie to the book and laughs and laughs. Ollie is great with different textures.
