To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
We loved how cute and soft this koala is until it was time to wash it. The material seems to have melted in the dryer, so now we have a koala with rough bristles. We are sad and disappointed!
To Gund's defense, the label on the koala says "hand wash" and "air dry" that we had missed. Nevertheless, I find it unusual and inconvenient for a soft toy for little kids to not withstand a machine wash (unlike all our other soft toys).
Best, lovable koala! My daughter has wanted a koala for a long time and saved her money to buy this money. It is the softest, sweetest little thing. She sleeps with it every night. Unfortunately it succumbed to a vomit incident this past weekend - into the washing machine it went on the hand wash setting - came out nice and clean! Left to air dry and all was like new!
My daughter received this Koala as a gift, and has decided that he is "THE" soother that she must have to sleep, so we purchased this one to have on hand as a back-up. He is soft, has a good amount of give when hugged, she likes the different texture of his nose, and he's got some beans in the rear-end of him that give him a nice weight.
