Peanut loves stuffed animals! We call them his “friends”! He has 2 in particular that are his besties… a teddy bear named “Bear Bear”, and a puppy named “Rover”…yes, I did name them, and yes… my Hubby gave me grief over how silly the names are! Peanut takes these guys everywhere! In the car, to bed, when he is playing around the house… he even has them help clean up his toys. He will use their paws to pick up his cars and such…it’s pretty cute!
Recently, we were generously given the opportunity to add to “the pack” from HABA Toy company, a great specialty toy company started more than 70 years ago in Germany that has a wide range of toys from baby through preschool. We were given the “Play set Hound Leo” and boy was Peanut excited to meet his new friend. Peanut really loves puppies, so it was fitting for his new friend to be a puppy. He loved him from the moment he met him. This play set is awesome because it comes with a special bowl to feed puppy, a bone and also a blanket. We ended up naming him Pup instead of Leo… this was kind of Peanut’s idea this time! Let me just say that Pup is now officially one of the club. He now goes everywhere Bear Bear and Rover go. It has been fun listening to Peanut call him Pup too! Peanut’s speech is delayed, but he can actually say Pup, and so he calls for him all the time!
Peanut promptly added him to the pile of his other friends!
