As a follow-up to my post, When Toys Become Real, Like Veleveteen, here’s a pictorial:
This is how Woody arrives from the store… with the movie character’s name, Andy, already embossed on the bottom of the boot.
After a few good months of love, this is what the other boot looks like:
I love it. That is heartwarming. And I LOVE the Velveteen Rabbit.
Oh that’s rich! What a fun keepsake…
Such a great shot! We have many old toys from my mothers childhood days in Germany. They are wood as well. Good memories, thanks for sharing!
Awww. That’s sweet.
🙂 When our guy was little he went to Target w/ his mom..and OMG he lost Woody’s hat. He cried through the store in his little voice “I wan Wooooody’s Hat!”..
We bought a new woody JUST for the hat..I know, can you say spoiled rotton.
Woody and Buzz are the BEST!
MP, I’m afraid I’ve “been there” on that one too.
What wonderful photos and a marvellous toy. Happy WW
A kids gotta make his own mark on the world, one toy at a time. And he’s probably been wondering, “Who the hell is this Andy character anyway?
Aww, how sweet.
LOL…yep, kids just dont understand the cost of living and TOYS until they are out on their own buying them for their kids:) Happy WW my friend. Thanks for stopping by:)
As to my ‘visitor’, he was actually quite tame… I almost hand it on my hand…
awww .. that’s just adorable! my son and I enjoyed watching Toy Story years ago. 🙂
Great pictures. He must e thought: “Great, they bought me a used one!” 🙂
I love it! Loved that movie, too. Think I may have to go watch it.
happy ww. 🙂
We just watched this movie today! How funny. My 3-year-old loved it.
My son did the same thing to his Woody doll. Happy WW!
That’s so cute! Dudelet went through a big toy story phase, though Buzz is abandoned in a box somewhere by now. He’s a fickle little monster, though altogether lovable with it.
*big smile* Love this!
Ah, that makes me verklempt!
