If you missed out on Freddy the teddy from Mothercare then this is just as good if not better! I managed to get Freddy but whilst out shopping today I noticed these at the front. They are just as big as Freddy, but in my opinion have more padding and are softer. I wasn't too keen on the teddy but the monkey and dog are so cute. Some may moan about the stitching but for a teddy that is bigger than my child and for 9.99 I can fix the poor stitching!
