This lil guy is great for hanging on my 1 year old niece's car seat handle during road trips. I bought this musical dog/giraffe guy for my sister. She lives in a very remote part of Montana, and in order to just go get the mail, she has to get my 2 small nieces ready and drive for THREE HOURS to town to reach the closest post office! Can you imagine having to go on a 6 hour car ride with two children under the age of 3, just so you can get your mail?? Neither can I, which is why I'm always sending my sister new toys and things to occupy my nieces during the drive. She did this little guy so far is her youngest's favorite. :) its just long enough for her to be able to reach (and chew on of course), but no so long that it hangs in her face and annoys her. The inky thing she said would make it better, is if it played music longer. But they both are very happy with it!
