August 26, 2016
I was very happy with my purchase of Butterscotch. I was a little afraid to hit purchase when I read some of the previous reviews but, I'm happy I did.It's a sweet elephant and very silky soft. This little guy or girl has found a home with me!Thanks for all the great merchandise and service, VTC!

An adorable little pachyderm! I too found Butterscotch to be a must have and I was very happy when I received it. I was looking for a vintage style stuffed toy to sit in a newly acquired antique pram and this sweet elephant fit the bill! I couldn't say no to those eyes or the growler!I do think it was wise, to add in the description, that it's an adult collectible and not meant for small children. Although soft and cuddly, I think it's a little too delicate for rough handling or play.I'm very happy with my purchase and will cherish Butterscotch for years to come. Thanks!

The first time that Butterscotch was featured in your catalog I knew that someday this little elephant would be mine! I'm a big kid at heart! I was gifted him for Christmas, by my family, who felt he needed a good home. Honestly, I was so pleased.Butterscotch is sweet! I believe the makers were trying to make an elephant in that old fashion, mohair teddy bear style with the long, floppy jointed limbs. I feel they captured the essence of that!The fur is silky soft and the eyes are expressive and so sad. I prefer that the joints are loose so that I may easily pose Butterscotch on a side chair in my sitting room. I like the vintage grumbler sound, too!My niece loves elephants and I recently found a children's book with an elephant that looks identical to Butterscotch. I plan on buying another one and gifting it with the book, for her birthday.I've shopped for many years with VTC and I must say I've never been disappointed. Thank you so much, VTC!

This was a Christmas present from my wonderful husband and this elephant is softer and so genuine and exceeded my expectations from just seeing him in the catalog. He sits upon a shelf with my father's first toy and is the start of a wonderful collection in the future of true looking antique toys along with true original antique toys.

When I received the elephant I was very disappointed, My granddaughter loves elephants and has loved the teddy bear I gave her to shreds so since she is older now I thought this would be a good replacement. When it arrived it looked awful. The ears look like a sick puppie's ears and the hat was not standing up but flopping behind and the stuffing was lumpy. I usually love Victorian Trading products but I have returned this and now have to search for something else. Definitely not as pictured in the catalog!
