I found a very lifelike german shepherd stuffed animal for sale online. I bought it for a child’s birthday and it was a huge hit for him. The animal was so real to him it was like having the real thing. I think life sized stuffed animals are great for teaching kids how to handle pets if the parents are thinking about getting the child a real pet. Besides that, they are cuddly and soft.
The one I purchased is a puppy so it really stole my heart. It also came with a tag that disclosed all the information about real german shepherds so it also seemed educational. On some of them I looked at the details on the animal were just incredible.
As I mentioned the gift was life sized and the boy I purchased it for really seemed to like it that way. I think he would have been disappointed if it had just been a regular toy stuffed animal.
