As I replied to Pamela, Sophie takes it most places with her, including sitting him on the passenger seat of her car, with the seatbelt fastened around him, when she drives down to Wales to see her boyfriend. However, she decided to leave Shaun at home when she went on holiday to Portugal as her boyfriend is a keen surfer, and he mentioned taking him out to catch a few waves!!
On the morning she was going on holiday, poor old Sophie didn't feel too great, so later in the day, to cheer her up, I sent her a picture or two of Shaun letting his hair (or should that be fleece?) down. Imagine my surprise when I received a text message back from Sophie's phone saying, "Please can you throw him in the bin". It took me a few moments to realise that the message wasn't from Sophie..!
I've still got my Teddy, whose tummy plays 'Brahms Lullaby' when you press it, from when I was a baby. I also have the first cuddly toy Chris bought me over thirty years ago – it's an Andrex puppy called Ben, although he's barely recognisable now!
Do any of you have cuddly toys with a story??
