This case comes from overseas, so shipping takes longer than normal. When it arrived, it did not come with the mini Pooh stylus as the picture shows. Although, having read that from other customers, we weren't surprised. It does have a very strong chemical/paint smell when you first open the packaging. It did eventually air out, but if you held it to your nose, you could indeed still smell it. Although my daughter doesn't just go around all the time sniffing it! haha... Overall, she's very happy with it.
