We ordered this via the internet as a Christmas gift for our nearly eight-year-old daughter and were delighted to recieve it days ahead of schedule. Upon opening the box I was pleased to find the toy in a sealed bag, but the box was a little too small for the item. Unfortunately, after I got it out of the bag I quickly realized it was not nearly as cute as pictured. The face was oversized, lopsided and narrow, instead of round with a flat face. The hair was also slicked completely against the body instead of fluffed up, and when I tried to gentley fluff it with my fingers, it shed, and shed, and shed. I thought the rough shape might be just because it was right out of the box, but no matter what I do it just doesn't look right from the head up. We love Melissa and Doug stuff, just not this toy. It might look much better when shipped differently, but I would be put off by the shedding no matter what. It will be going back to the store A.S.A.P. before it goes bald just sitting here. The price and shipping time was so good we might try ordering something else. Hopefully, it will be of better quality and have appropriate packaging.

    Comments about Melissa & Doug Lifesized and Lovable Plush Shih Tzu:

    I purchased this toy dog with the intention of using her for a model for the dog coat I sew.
    She photographs nicely and is just the right size for my needs. Her fur is nice and soft and fluffs up nicely. She is also cuddly if you want her for a toy.

    All in all, I am very satisfied with this purchase and will in the future look for another size for a model.

      Comments about Melissa & Doug Lifesized and Lovable Plush Shih Tzu:

      I love Melissa and Doug products, so when I saw this adorable dog on the Toys R Us website I bought it for my daughter as a Christmas gift. With shipping, it was over $40.00, but I figured for a quality plush that was ok. When we got it, I was shocked by how cheaply made it looks. It appears like it could have been won in a crane machine. The fur was extremely coarse and no matter how I brushed it I could not recreate the cute dog in the pictures or on its tag. If it weren't for the tag you would have no clue that it is supposed to be a Shih tzu. The eyes seem very cheap, and you have no keep adjusting the front leg to make it stand. It is also too firm to ne huggable! If it hadn't been so close to Christmas I would have returned it for sure. Instead, I created a story about the dog being a sort of pound puppy that no one has ever loved on order to explain the scruffy, messy appearance. Luckily, the symapthy story led to my daughter loving it anyway, but I will never purchase another Melissa and Doug plush again, and I hope they stick to wooden toys and puzzles.

        This stuffed animal has the same, if not worse, quality as the stuffed animals you win at a Fair!Shame on Melissa & Doug for selling this product at such a high price for such a badly designed and bad quality, stuffed animal! The fur is bad, the stitching is terrible, and the shape is awful! Looks nothing like the picture.

          The dog is true to lifesize but a bit stiff. A little more squeezable would be nice. Still, my daughter loved the dog.
