    When I think of such a name the Genesis (or Mega Drive outside of the US) game of the same name comes to mind. Is Echo just a common dolphin name given by us humans? One of a dolphin’s abilities is it’s echo-location, which is where the name comes from.

    Back on topic, Echo is generally well-made. They don’t feel like they’ll fall apart easily. They’re also very soft (more of a fuzzy soft, but still soft!), and I’m a big fan of the blueish-grey Ty gave Echo. Combine it with a nice white color and you get a good colo(u)r scheme.

    The back fin and the side fins are somewhat flat with no stuffing or beans, but the tail fins get some beans, and the snout/nose is stuffed and so is the top half of the body. The seams are also designed well! The way they’re positioned makes it looks like Echo has a blowhole. Nice touch.

    Overall, Echo is a nice beanie baby to own. If you can, I’d recommend getting them.
