This might amuse

Post by Kickaha » Fri Nov 08, 2019 3:50 pm

My wife and I have a collection of soft toys (putting it like that makes me feel stupid). We also have visited a number of places round the world, not as many as some. I have added to my personal website a kind of soft toy travelogue athttps://www.alofmethbin.com/Games/ToyTrips/index.html .

I intend doing another version of this for a particular purpose, but wanted to save this version for more general viewing. Sorry some of the references will be a bit obscure.

That was such fun to read, Kickaha, and the soft toy who said that thinking is over-rated made me laugh. Also, there's no need to feel stupid about having soft toys (or stuffed animals, as we call them in the US). I have 4 big bins of Teddy bears and rabbits that I have to rotate with the seasons. If I put them all out at once, there would be no place to sit or sleep. I do have a few I keep out all year round. One is a tiny soft polar bear named Berg who sits on the shelf next to my reading chair, and sweet CB {Cuddly Bunny) who sits on the back of the couch with the Tickle Me Elmo my sister gave me last year.
Sorry, Santa! I meant to behave, but there were too many options.

Hubby bought some puppets that do the shark song (I never knew what that was, but, I guess it is the hot new song for kids) and we had a family party last night and the kids were fighting over those puppets. Even the 12 year old wanted one. so, we are into soft toys too.

Berg is a good name for a polar bear Lady K! Thanks for looking.

Thoroughly enjoyed the read, Kickaha! Love your sense of humour and love of 'cuddlies'. I have, apart from a few others, a Christmas polar bear and his mate the Christmas penguin who come out each Christmas to sit under my tree. :)
