Bought this for myself as I have long been a Beanie Baby fan and a Hello Kitty fan. The cupcake addition seems to be well made but wouldn't recommend this for a very young child because they could try and pull it off. I really liked it though, and thought it was good value for money.
Bought for my girlfriends families foster child as a little christmas present. While the toy is quite small the little girl was starstruck, making it a very worthwhile gift. Hard to comment on the durability but as for fun the little girl loves it, maybe a little too much as she was pretending to feed it paint through a spoon!
