The neck has a bendable rod for positioning, but it is very weak and doesn't flex all that much. I let him sit out for a while hoping it would fluff up but it hasn't.
The teddy is super soft, plush and perfect cuddly size. The recorder is interesting. Easy to create personalized message.
This bear is amazing. Been buying and using them for 4 years.
It is for a gift for my 21 yr old daughter. They all go to build a bear and buy clothes for their bears. My granddaughter loves it.
If the recorder stops playing or the bears fall apart before my husbands deployment ends my kids will be crushed. The battery appears to still work bc it lights up when i push play but there is no recorded message anymore. No recorder or stuffing.
