Did you ever win a stuffed toy at the County Fair, Amusement Park, or the Carnival? Or maybe you spent way too much money trying to get that claw to pick up one special stuffed animal in a vending machine?
I remember having a stuffed clown, with a pointed hat, dressed in a Harlequin green and yellow pattern. I do NOT remember how much I spent at the Fair before I won him, but I do remember being so proud of that little fellow!
When our daughters were dating, I remember several HUGE stuffed animals that took up residence at our house, when boyfriends would win them, showing off. (The love for the stuffed animal usually outlasted the interest in the boy!!)
