I do like the material from the FAO puppet better... I guess on a plus side the Toys R us ones won't Pill as much. Well here they are side by side. The one on the left is FAO and the one on the right is Toys R US. The Toys Rus one seems to have a wider mout but its more how it was constructed than a difference in size. The Toys r us one is a little more comfortable on my hand but that is more of a stuffing issue.
