So apparently this is a Milu Deer, but to my little dude, it's some kind of elk/deer/moose hybrid. It depends on who you ask.
This little guy is so incredibly cute! His big green eyes are cute, not creepy like some I've seen with this style peepers. His fur is a beautiful brown with rosettes, and it is incredibly soft. I showed my 4 year old son and his responses were "I love his green eyes" and "his paws are super soft," and "he is super huggy." I am going to give this to my 18 month old for Christmas, and I think he'll love it. We live close to the National Elk Refuge, and so both boys are big fans of all four-legged antlered animals. The thing that surprises me most about this is the price - I have seen stuffed animals in my town (which is a tourist town, so there's a mark-up there) for easily 5 to 10 dollars more than this. I think this is a great deal on a really quality lovey. The fur alone is the same kind of plush fabric that I've seen on luxe pillows. It really is an incredibly good quality plushie, especially for this price point!
