We have a few of the Dora design items in the house; a mixture of door stops and paperweights (all very sweet animal designs that are both fit for purpose and great to look at).
All of the Dora Design items we own are very well made and can be kept clean with a quick dust over with the vacuum cleaner periodically, or wiped with a damp cloth in the case of spills.
I added 'Willis' to my collection over a year ago. He looks very comical with his spectacles and tufts of hair and has helped me to organise my desk at last! Willis arrived packed in his own gift box (making it very handy should you be able to bear to part with him to give as a gift) and is scented. He stands upright, as pictured. He's just really cute and jolly and everyone who has seen him has not failed to chuckle.
