Our Teddy Bear (Aussie Bear) arrived yesterday and is perfect! I may have told you earlier that this is for our 6-month-old granddaughter. While she will not recall us giving it to her, she will never recall NOT having it. My wife had goose bumps when she picked it up and held it. Thank you for a quality product. - Wayne Ivie, Bryan, Texas, USA
When David (Aussie Bear - honey beige) arrived in my home, I felt my "family" was almost complete. I had wanted to name my first son David, but his father had his heart set on another name. Then that same son, many years later, gifted me with the bear, I was free to name him David. He became my companion, sitting in my lift chair (I am disabled) with me. His soft fur and bright eyes, leather foot pads and bright ribbon - the perfect final touch - all put together, provided an appealing companion. And the soft-firm stuffing is perfect for hugging when I need comforting. With sight failing, and hearing dulled somewhat, touch had become my favored avenue of connection. With the loss of so many of my physical abilities, and becoming more disabled every day, I found myself becoming increasingly isolated from those who could, and would, get together and enjoy each other's company, leaving me out because it's such a bother to deal with someone in a wheelchair. But, with David sitting beside me in my lift chair, I had a listener. I hug him when I hurt, sometimes cry on him for a few minutes, then thank him, and you, feeling connected again. Later, when my ivory Hugum (flat sheepskin bear) arrived, she totally completed my "family". She lives on my bed, and when I'm there, I stroke her soft non-polyester fur, and find this so comforting. I feel warm and she feels fuzzy, and what is more comforting than a fuzzy bear? The feeling helps me empty my mind and prepare for sleep, which is difficult for me, as I have a severe sleep disorder. I can't thank Carol and Laurie Exton enough for their personal attention, and their close=to=nature products. My life is better because of both. - Ruth Darcy, Michigan, USA
TOTALLY love them (hugums), my little girl has not let hers out of her site. My brother cracked up when he arrived and saw his sons cot set up complete with hugum and my girlfriends one is enroute to her as I speak. She had a little boy last weekend. Thanks so much!! I'll be Back! - Tracy Little, Auckland, New Zealand
The wombat (soft toy) came within 3 days! He is very cute and just was nice as we hoped he would be from his picture (or 'her', we haven't decided yet). Also, thank you for the professional packing and service which ensured it arrived safely and so quickly, you have been most inpressive. Thank you, too, for the marvellous extra 'present' of the 'Ayers Rock' drinks mat - what a smashing surprise! - Colin Menage, Dartmouth, England

I was delighted to receive my wombat when I returned from work last night, less than a week after I placed the order. It was even better than I had expected, and your communications have reassured me throughout the anxious waiting period. This has been hands down my best online shopping experience, I wish you and everyone at Exton all the best. You can be sure I will be visiting again soon. Thank you. - Carsen Kline, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA

The (soft) toys arrived unbelievable fast! We were shocked to receive them less than a week after we placed the order. They are so adorable too. My children are thrilled with their new wombat and penguin. They have been sleeping with them every night since their arrival. I have been meaning to leave positive feedback on your website but being a mother of 3 small children I am always very busy and sometimes things take me a little longer to do. I am so pleased with the stuffed toys and the quick and smooth transaction. I would highly recommend you to everyone. Thanks again for everything. - Kim Schlatterer, Tampa, Florida, USA
I received my large wombat yesterday evening. It was everything I had hoped for, soft, cuddly, and absolutely adorable.

Thank you very much! - Susan Mackenthun, Vallejo, California, USA
I want to thank you for sending the koala bear so quickly and in such perfect condition. It arrived in this afternoon's mail - just a week after you sent it from Australia.

Yes, the wombat arrived safely, in excellent condition, and a fine wombat it is. My bank account was charged for the package the same day I picked it up at my local post office. I must really thank you for taking special considerations, and I can heartily recommend you, should I ever talk with someone with an acute need for a stuffed wombat (or other Australian animal for that matter) :) - Balder Mork, Oslo, Norway

The holiday is starting off wonderfully--the platypus arrived today. He (or it) is adorable and was worth the wait. I couldn't be happier. The echidna coaster is wonderful. Thanks so very much. What an interesting looking creature!!

I shall certainly place additional orders in the future. - Judi Miller, Cleveland, Ohio, USA
