Will the tortoise survive small children sitting on it?
I am considering this in a children's garden. Is is sturdy enough to hold a small child to sit on? If so, how large a child?
I saw this in store yesterday, heavy at 25.3lbs and durable. Coloring is beautiful, lifelike, sophisticated not cheap, at most could add a protective outdoor matte clear coating.
Quality was surprising and over the years I doubt you would regret spending the money. As it is not a necessity, intially a little high but looks worth the cost.
I am ordering one to be shipped as I didn't want to hussle it in and out of car.
I believe it could handle children too old to be sitting on a tortoise, even over the usual age of sitting on a tortoise, probably a heavy agile adult ! Beautiful children's garden idea.
