Amber has gotten to the point where she sleeps with a stuffed animal every night. Right now her choice is a sweet little giraffe that she has named “honey”. It brings me back to my dolls and animal friends over the years. For years and years I slept with a Cabbage Patch Doll named Allison. She had red hair and was adorable. Then it was a Jaguar named Dae (tween/teen inside joke, haha!!!) I slept with him every night until I was dating Bob, when I switched to a German Shepard stuffed puppy dog he bought for Valentine’s day. He never got a name, well, because I was 17 at the time–haha!
I have each of these special “friends” with me still and it’s so sweet to see my “big girl” going down the same road.
The people at Build-a-Bear know that friends count–whether they be real or stuffed! They are celebrating their 15th birthday this year and have created over 100 million furry friends!
Did you have a extra special doll or stuffed animal growing up? What was their name/s?
