One of our favorite toys, Buddy Dog, needed a friend: introducing Echo. She has warm, over-sized engaging eyes and a friendly smile that will delight any child. Echos high contrast colors are appealing to all children, even those with low vision. Her stimulating features encourage tactile exploration through her cool cotton, soft velour, rubbery and raised dots, fluffy tuft of hair, the secret patch of Velcro on her backside, and most distinguishing her large floppy ears.
