He's very cute and seems well cuddled. He looks very 70s (in a good way!). Funny how some childhood toys remain with you and become cherished possessions.and now his fur is balding, and his stuffing is rotten, and his eyes are dullBut Emily loved him. :-)
Over the years, I left possessions all along the paths I've wandered, without any logical rhyme or reason. It certainly wasn't always practicality. Four possession from childhood survived the journeys. And one was my own bear. He was made in England, with suede paws and bristley fur. I don't remember playing with him much, but he was the only one who could comfort me one scary nights as a child.I must have treated him quite well. He even still had the small golden charm around his next.A year after my son was born, I finally relinquished ownership. I dressed hin in a pair of bib overalls (one of my son's first real outfits) for the occasion. My son, now 15, still has him. Like me, he didn't play with him much either. But he was often the first choice for a bedtime companion.
