Everyone can remember a special stuffed animal from their childhood or when their children were young that was depended upon for comfort and security. It seems as if kids really think these special friends are real! Many a conversation have been heard between a child and a stuffed friend. I remember my son had a monkey from the very beginning of his life and we always had to know where it was so we could grab it in a moments notice in order to prevent my son from having a melt down. Although my son seemed to have him by his side wherever he went, at bedtime when my son was tucked in, I could hear him sharing with his monkey anything he felt was important about the day. I will never forget that well loved tattered monkey!
I came upon some furry friends on Etsy that do look as if they are real. You can actually see their personalities and they seem to look as if they need a special little friend to comfort when needed.
These adorable little friends can be found in a shop called Pogoshop on Etsy. I love everything she makes and I would have a hard time choosing just one. What a joy it must be for her to watch them come alive in her very own hands!
