I finally broke down and bought Sombrita the little goat, and I would have to give it a B-. Mainly because I thought it would be more like a high-quality stuffed toy, which it is not, and because it is definitely NOT worth $18.
It is heavy, almost like a paperweight (9oz). You would not want to drop this on a hard surface. It could easily be ruined because of the weight.
Sized from the tip of its nose to the end of its tail, Sombrita is 5 1/2" wide. From the tip of its ear to the bottom of its hoof, it is 5 1/2" tall.
It is made out of a very dense resin material and then the fur is glued onto it. However, the fur on the body looks like it was sewn first and then applied to the hard resin form. The fur is loose under the belly. Since it is all resin, the appendages do not move at all, except for the tail, which is just a flap of furry material. It is more like a furry figurine that you would set on a shelf. The fur has a very nice, soft texture to it.
Sombrita is very cute. The face has character and if you have read the Josefina books about Sombrita, you will appreciate this figurine. It has a silver bell tied to a piece of glossy hemp cord. The eyes appear to be glass insets. The face, hoofs, and ears are all coated with a velvety applique' that is very low pile, and separate from the furry sewn suit that is laid on top of it. The black coloring looks like it was airbrushed on. Very nicely done, but makes the fur a bit stiffer than the white parts.
Overall, I would say that AG needs to knock $10 off the price to make it worth getting. I like the Sombrita story so much that I am glad she is part of my collection. BUT... had I known she was resin, I probably would not have purchased her.
