My 12 year old son is passionate about wolves. He absolutely adores this soft toy I bought him for Christmas. I'm not a big fan of soft toys, but when I find this one lying around I find myself stroking its soft belly fur. I didn't have to tell my son that the toy is supposed to be a wolf, he knew as soon as he saw it. Many "wolf" soft toys could easily be mistaken for a "dog", this certainly isn't one of them. This is certainly a wonderful product for anyone who loves wolves.
