The coloring on the rubber has some fade and wear, but is pretty good! No holes noted, but there is a thinner area of hair on its neck. It is somewhat dingy and has an older smell to it, but we did not try to clean it because we are not experts in this category and we did not want to damage it. We think it's so sweet! What a cute melt-your-heart face!If you collect older (worn, well loved) plushes, keep an eye on our store--we have a number of these sweet animals going up soon! Please see photos for more detail.
