Cuddly and soft

I never owned many soft toys as a child, in fact, my parents thought that a bicycle and a doll was sufficient. My bride doll and my tricycle were my valued possessions. Today young children own many soft and cuddly toys. From a teddy bear, rabbit, wombat, koala, camel to furry possum, the idea of gathering them together in a room, on a shelf or under the blankets is popular. Even the op shops are full of them – stuffed into bins and overloaded onto shelves. Cheap and tatty, treasured , squished soft toys from $1-$5. Visit a Post office and you will see more cuddlies. KMart, Target and Myer are full of the latest brands.


My own boys and daughter owned teddies – Siggy, Grey, Pooh and Ted. Now Grey has been passed down to Tim’s son and he proudly sits on the bed. Here he is! How cute!

Every now and then an extra special soft toy arrives as a gift from overseas. This camel came from Afghanistan. How amazing.

Lastly teenagers love cute adorable soft toys like G the giraffe and Jemima the bunny. It brightens their day and mood. As sweet as a honey kiss. As precious as you and me!
