Someone RAn over Harry's Teddy

Postby pip » Thu Sep 20, 2012 3:06 pm

We arrived home to find a package form OZ addressed to little Harry. It was sent by Mrs Pips dads Aussie cousin so we were excited to see what it was. We opened the package and were shocked to find what looked like roadkill. It looks a bit like someone went to the Teddy Bear factory and forgot the stuffing.

Turns out thes are the new big thing Down Under and they're bloody expensive (around 50 euro) for a squashed bear. They're made from sheep or something . Bloody strange but Mad better get a few in the shop just in case :lol:

I'd put that away in the loft, in the packaging, and wait for the Antiques Roadshow 2052 to come around.

Poor little Harry will be terrified if he sees that. :shock:

Shouldn't it be re-named as a Flatmate?? Scary!

I thought it was a hot water bottle, or maybe a pyjama case? It just doesn't look right!

Aussies are pretty strange. Maybe its traditional for babies to play with whatever the jeep just squashed .

Never seen one Pip. And I see a lot of babies. How big is it ? Is it just skin on the back or .more fluff
?

All my girls.had a sheepskin to sleep on and one for the pram as babies. My boss sent to New Zealand for one for Truly and she is 25 , ,that fitted her cot. Very extravagant. It keeps the baby so cool in sweltering summers and cosy in winter.

Bit those were short haired and no ribbons and no button nose or eyes... watch harry doesn't chew those off.

I'm going to post a picture of it on another forum I go to, and see what the reaction will be.

Especially since I keep seeing the nose as a frowning open mouth and the ears have sort of merged in to one long head thing :shock: .So to me,it looks like a blue marshmallow thing crying out in pain.Oh goodness the nightmares to be had. :?

They're all the rage down here?!

I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

Well, that's different. Doesn't look very cuddly. :? And, Del makes a good point, doesn't look baby safe.
