This dinosaur is stuffed to fullness and double stitched for added strength. This cotton fabric reminds me of a volcano of colors. You can give him a toss into your washer when dirty and then into the dryer. I use cold water wash when I do mine and then dry on low, or you could air dry if you prefer. This dinosaur is easy to hang onto and has no buttons for baby to accidently swallow. This item was made in a pet free and smoke free environment.
