"I was extremely disappointed when these plush sharks arrived for my daughters birthday party. They are smaller than I expected (closer to 4 in and they include the tiny tail.) They are cheaply made...I'm sure it cost them pennies and they are charging us $1.99?! You win better prizes at carnivals and out of junk machines. Definitely did not meet my expectations. The only plus is that shark party favors are heard to find and the kids will love them...for a day, until they fall apart! Do not spend more than $1 on these poor quality plush."
