I was turning over the front garden yesterday when my spade uncovered a bit of white plastic. I picked it up, dusted it off, and found it was a toy zebra.
"Brenda!" I yelled. "I haven't seen you since last summer."
It struck me we have some toys with names that may be forgotten if I don't record them. This post is another for the historical record, rather than for public consumption (read along, if you like).
Tim: a giraffe with no ears (Henry bit them off, if I recall correctly)
Giggles: a tiger (he was with us until a few months ago, when Jake ate his head)
Brenda: a zebra
Hoompra: an elephant
Globotron: Henry's first dinosaur
Himpy: Henry's second dinosaur
Himpy: a hippo (Henry forgot he'd already used the name, and it stuck)
Lobsty: a lobster
Snow Guy: a man in an old fur parka
Snow Girl: his girlfriend
Snow dogs: their two dogs
Beebee whale: a small killer whale
Mumma whale: a large killer whale
Creamy: Henry's favourite stuffed dog
Pink: Jane's pink dog
Moley: the felt mole Erin made Jane for Christmas a couple years ago
Blurtle: a blue turtle
Blue puppy: a blue puppy
Cugga: Jane's baby doll
This seems like a lot of toys. Keep in mind many are no longer with us...
