These really are very cute. My five year old was so excited to finally add these to our collection! However we have literally not even had them for 12 hours… I only picked them up this morning. My daughter opened the box at around 1.30pm (it's 6pm now) and started playing with them, taking the little baby out of the sling and putting it in it's little bed and back into the sling etc a few times. It's nose was gone within 20mins! The other three family members showed significant nose fading also. My daughter is far too in love with them and has been waiting so long for this particular family so I don't want to give them up… All I can say is thank goodness for brown Sharpie pens. I've coloured their noses in and hope that they last. Disappointing for items that aren't cheap, meant to be good quality and are supposed to be played with.
