I purchased this item, along with many other Lion king themed items for my baby(4months old). He absolutely LOVES this!
The bad news? Although I followed washing instructions to the letter, this item melted and shredded over the entire load of wash. It is completely ruined. . . along with most of my baby's clothes, Bundle Me, crib sheets, towels, etc. to say the least-- I am VERY upset!
So, unless you're not planning on washing this ever, do not buy it!
