First Impressions

The product is not authentic, the official sticker is missing from the package. The package has derp faces of the BTS gang on the bottom and group promo photos on the back. Note added by seller adds a nice personal touch. Matches the seller’s images on the site. Soft to the touch, clean and well-stuffed. Not the traditional pretty doll, but adorable nevertheless.

The keyring on the 5.5-inch toy comes with a clasp that can be clipped onto your bag. Seller states the product is 100% eco-friendly, the tag reads 95% cotton and 5% polyester. Contrary to the seller’s claims, the label says the product is not approved for children below six years of age. Priced at half the cost of the original (excluding shipping charges). Decent quality for the cost. Freebies include the lomo cards and a measuring tape or small character kachina obvious issue is that the two variants of the J-Hope Toy have different facial expressions. The nose and mouth stitched onto the 8.5-inch option seem to be upside-down.
