Favourite Toy


I was asked by someone yesterday what my favourite toy was when I was a child (it wasn't an idle question, it was work related) and so I sent them a photo. So let me introduce you all to Bobby. He was my first Christmas present so he was 49 years old last Christmas. I think he's a Chad Valley bear but I'm not 100% certain.

Up until the age of about ten when I blew the candles out on my birthday cake and made a wish I always wished he could talk. Sadly he lost his eyes at some point and he's a bit threadbare in places but he's not in bad condition for his age.
