I think that the tail is the cutest part. It doesn't show up very well in the photos in the magazine.
If you decide to do this pattern, the one adjustment that I made to it was to not sew the limbs shut before attaching them to the body. They look much better when just attached straight on, as the head is to the body. Also, the pattern for the ears seems a bit off but I just went ahead and made the full circles, as the pattern called for, and folded the top part over to make a little ear flap and I think it turned out all right.
