A long time ago there was a Dodge Caravan ad on TV where the Mom took the brand new teddy bear and washed the car with it and even ran over it with the car. Then she actually tore an eye off!! And what was all that odd behavior for? So she could have her little girl “find” her lost teddy bear!!
I wonder if any of the mint condition stuffed animals or soft dolls that we’ve sold over the last few years have met a similar fate LOL. Here we are, being so careful to select toys in only the best possible condition, writing all these detailed descriptions, taking bunches of photos … even taking pictures of the tush tags …. only to have some Mama run it through the wringer to make it look like the original … just too funny!!
Have YOU ever replaced a lost blankie or special stuffed animal with another one that you tried to make look like the original? Was your child fooled, or did they know the difference? Or, maybe did YOUR parents try to do this with one of your favorite toys?
