My kids seem to grow out of toys a lot faster than I'd like. I think it's worse with J. Even though he's the baby, I really don't remember him spending that much time on "baby" toys. It feels like that phase lasted only a few short months with him. Watching his older brother play with race cars, ships, legos, puzzles, and other toys like this, he just couldn't help but get in on the fun.
Every once in a while though, he finds it in his heart to pay attention to one of the most iconic children's toys there is. You guessed it, a lovable Huggable Teddy Bear. I absolutely love watching him hug his teddy bear. Absolutely one of the most adorable things. Ever. Especially since he says "hug" while he does it.
I guess I should be impressed he doesn't tear the poor little guy apart. He does treat his teddy bear with respect. Gotta love that. Teddy is so special he gets his own private room. He doesn't have to associate with any of the other riff raff toys and has his own space. What could be better than that?
It reminds me of the teddy bears I used to have growing up, only better. I definitely don't remember my teddy bear being as soft, or well made. When I was looking for the perfect teddy bear for J there were so many to choose from, it was quite overwhelming, so I went with something classic, one with a simple bow. It's really added something to our stuffed animal collection.
I admit the teddy bear was free courtesy of Huggable Teddy Bears, but the opinions are all my own.
