I ordered these for my two grandchildren, ages 4 & 6, for Christmas. They LOVE them. I was concerned because I was unfamiliar with the new, alternative stuffing material, but it's just fine. One unexpected plus is that it's extremely light-weight, so the kids can so easily move them around by themselves. Add bright, very pretty, clear colors, shiny wipe-clean vinyl and you have extremely appealing, kid-friendly personal seating, with lots of playvalue as well. They enjoy them far more that I'd ever have imagined.
