COUNTERFEIT ALERT

Counterfeit versions of Maple exist.

   1. The fabric on the counterfeit is rough instead of velvety.
   2. The head on the counterfeit is smaller and overstuffed, making it feel very hard.
   3. The ears on the counterfeit are larger than the ears on the authentic version.
   4. The eyes are closer together on the counterfeit version than the eyes on the authentic version.
   5. The thread shaping the head on the counterfeit is so tight it crates a dimple under the chin. There is no dimple on the authentic version.
   6. The ribbon on the counterfeit is too wide. It should measure 3/16 of an inch wide. On some counterfeit versions the ribbon is sewn to the underside of the chin. The ribbon is free-moving on the authentic version.
