I am here to tell you...when I saw this huge stuffed shark I had to have it. It was at IKEA and it was soft and cuddly...pretty inexpensive too. So I picked it up. Bought it. We got it home and Little Man quickly wanted to make friends with it. I had to tell him it was mine. I share, but keep my ownership rights...he's the one who loves to cuddle it during Shark Week though!
