Soft toy thread 🐻


#41

Shyla was/is a yellow bunny!


#42

did your soft toys have your surname?

mine did - my mam would tell them off for being naughty using their full names. FUCKING DELIGHTFUL.


#43

this is so real to me and I am so sorry you went through this.

maybe that was just what was right for her at the time. maybe being a little baby’s toy was too much, or wasn’t enough? perhaps she envisioned a more sophisticated life, and wasn’t happy to wait for that.

we can only speculate, I suppose.


#44

It has a beautifully wonky face :heart:


#45

no but i used to take register of mine with a little notepad and pencil before going to bed every night, would’ve worked better if they had surnames


#46

i love you m8.

this has made me laugh a lot


#47

It is ok, I know she must have had her reasons. I grew to understand that. It is a big consolation that she was and is his no. 1 bear, so they were obviously meant to be best friends.


#48

I think I usually just gave them a last name based on their species. For example, Howard the polar bear had the full name of Howard James Bear*

*I got Howard when I was 17, not even embarrassed.


#49

pure adorable


#50

I really hope your nephew is okay?


#51

This thread has been the first time on new-dis that I have genuinely worried about the dreaded “running out of likes”


#52

sounds like a toff bear tbh pal, not sure about him.


#53

My cousin (who is about 15 years older than me) made me a Winnie the Pooh bear when I was in the womb. It’s looking pretty battered these days:


I should point out that this bear was originally made of towling. He also had ears.


#54

Nah, he is proper down to earth, a more likeable polar bear you are not likely to meet. He has one upside down paw, is very soft and for some reason loves mariachi music. GBOPB, I will take a picture of him tomorrow.


#55

Sean increased the like limit before Christmas, I think it is in the hundreds now so no need to ration those likes any time soon :+1:


#56

Cool. Thanks Sean. Just climate change, the international rise of fascism and the heat death of the universe left on my worries list. Can he help with any of those?


#57

No, but a nice soft toy might take the edge off?


#58

Was going to post pictures of Zammy but the TV will be rightly aggrieved if I start photographing my stuffed crocodile at twenty to twelve.


#59

mariachi music is excellent, might have been a bit hasty


#60

Something to look forward to for tomorrow then.
