Although I have a ton of pictures of Teddy, that's not really why I thought of this theme. Stuffed animals are in our lives from birth, and I think that they can make an excellent theme to capture on your cameras. Although it does say "stuffed", I think that any toy animals will fit the bill here.

Enjoy!

I can't believe Leo didn't post another TeddyOnAdventure to start off, but Christina? With a "merry-go-round" to boot, yours deserves a huge "awwwwwwwwwwww" : )))

Thanks Jakeroo. They were a kiddies attraction at a show we went to last summer and were so cute I just had to take the photo. Must have known I'd need it for something later on!

In 2007, I visited wonderful Australia. Went all over. I even met the usual suspects in Sydney!

So cute!

I got this little pig as a toy for Precious, but she has shown no interest, so he'll be one of the many wee animals that sit on tables and such around my home.

It's about as far away from Christmas as it can get right now, but here's a picture of Socrates and Plato, the penguins my mum got for my brother and me one Christmas.

This is what happens when bears don't behave - the torture of being pegged on the washing line! laugh

Ren: I'm so glad his name is Boxer and not Rocky lol

SpanishLiz: that's about the cutest little pig I've ever seen. Our cat never played with any toys we brought home for her either. Her favourite was those cloth covered pony tail thingies because they go a long way when batted at on the laminate floors (oh - and Cheerios, which went even further).

Alexx: Clever names! btw, are you and your brother twins?

Ed: you know, those two really DO look like they're concentrating on computer stuff!

Jane: ohhhhhhhhh, the humanity! lol

Jakeroo: I'm a classics student (well, I graduate in a few weeks), so I was inspired. Yes, we're twins. smile

Graduation?? Oh my, how exciting for you! Congatulations (in advance)!!!
(and cool on the twins part - what made me ask the question is that your mom bought identical gifts for you both lol)

Alexx: I'll bet you are, and well deserved.

Chavs: Okay that's WAY too adorable. Would also have been perfect for the "Picture My Book" thread - you are just too clever!!

Sorry for not posting a pic. I got rid of my multitudes of stuffed animals long ago (except for an Eeyore that was handmade by my Great Auntie - with a removable tail and everything! - but he's in a cedar trunk in my mother's basement and so probably not retrievable for quite some time).

This is Ellie. She was given to me by my husband over 30 years ago, and has survived 6 dogs, two grandchildren, and numerous trips through the washing machine
