I'm giving stuffed animal/plush backpacks to my grandkids for Christmas, and I got Cookie Monster for our little toddler. Cookie Monster is plushy and plump and just as cute as he can be, and just the right size for a little guy. But there isn't much room to put anything in his zipper pouch, maybe a little toy car or a few blocks, and definitely a couple cookies. Cookie Monster got 5 stars for fun because toddlers like putting things in and out of bags and boxes. He got 5 stars for educational just because he's so darned cute, and he got 5 stars for durability becuase he seems to be as well made as a plush aninmal should be.
