Made in Germany by Haba, the Hugging Sheep is an absolutely adorable product for babies 6 months of age on up. This award-winning little lamb has arms and legs that move.   His body is soft and huggable and is covered in a fuzzy cotton material that is just plain fun. Besides his soft body, the Hugging Sheep is also made out of high quality maple wood.

Buying products that are earth-friendly is the only way to go these days. Haba, the first toy manufacturing company in Germany that passed the ecological audit, uses germ-free maple and beech wood from European forests. The company uses non-toxic colors as well as  saliva-resistant and water-based finishes. The company uses eco-friendly processing methods in their manufacturing process too.

And clean up is a breeze for the heirloom quality sheep; just remove his "fur" coat and toss it in the washer. Use a damp cloth with water to clean the wooden areas. No disinfecting products or hot water is recommended. Hugging Sheep is nearly 5 inches wide by 4 inches tall and retails for about $16.

Huggable?

Love the sheep, and think it's cute as pie. But, really, how huggable is something 4x5 inches. Even for a baby. "...grab the sheep in your arms and hold onto him..." More like squish him in the palm of your hand. And one of those referenced websites have it listed as 3.5 by 4.5 inches. Any smaller and he'd be a choking hazard! Hug him with your trachea!
