Big Dolls and Odd Toys

For the first eight years of my life, I seemed to have dolls bigger than myself and I loved them all. I had a very strange sleeping habit. When mom put me into my bed I had to have my two huge stuffed bears on either side of me and a stuffed bee on my stomach. My mom often wondered how I managed to sleep. You can see how this looks in the picture.

One very strange toy I received was a hobo. You got that right. He was dressed like a hobo, had a bald head with a black hat on and tufts of orange hair. As with drunken hobos, his nose was bright red. I don’t remember how often I played with him but he was prominent among my toys. If you would ask me what I called him then I couldn’t tell you. I just don’t remember the name as I don’t remember the names of any of my stuffed animal friends.

Bath time was a really fun time. I had to have a bath with plenty of bubbles. Then after I got into the tub came all of my tub friends. There was a pink elephant, a boat, a duck and I believe a fish. All of this floated around me in the tub and if at any given moment I couldn’t find one of my toys mom would hear about it very loudly. Finally, it was out of the tub and off to bed where my stuffed friends waited for me. Still being a child at heart I have a small group of assorted stuffed animals which I still keep and which are of a comfort to me. I guess it’s the memories.
