This is a really sweet ice cream cone. There are two very different textures to the fabric, which make it a lot of fun. The cone parts is really soft with a velvety, suede-like feel. The ice cream part is like a fluffy microfiber fleece. If you have dry hands, it sort of sticks to your skin (lol), but it's really soft and cool feeling. I'm not sure how that part will hold up to play. I'm afraid it might pill up a little bit, hence the 4 stars, but we do love it.
