I have been watching Ray for years on Youtube and have seen the few, yet multiple times, that he has had Charlie on stream. The audience experience may be brief compared to what he gets to experience every day having a Shiba Inu, but this plush is amazing. The material for me was super soft and felt great when I pulled the plush out of my box, and the plush looks just like the image provided in the shop. I plan on coming back and ordering Riley as well, but I have mostly seen Charlie on stream and wanted to get her over her sister. If you have any younger siblings or nieces and nephews, I would highly recommend this item as a gift for them because once my nieces laid their eyes on these plushies, they were begging me to order one for them. Once again, this is another 10 out of 10 recommend from me because they are just that good!
