I was expecting a...sort of cheap material bone - like what you can get at any Walmart for $1.50 or less, but I liked the pattern. Half of it was more plush than material which was nice. Nice, loud squeaker, too. Jenny isn't a "toy" type of dog, it was her birthday and I wanted a toy to go with the different treats, but she did play with this for a few minutes and I was impressed by the toy's quality. Very happy I purchased!
