    Eric the Elephant is the same age as me.
    He didn't always used to be multicoloured :mmm:He first appeared blue, shiny and new, given to me when I was just a wee lil baby, however, I used to chew on his trunk, so that was the first to go
    Then the rest of him :rofl:
    He got patched up at a local repairs shop in central Edinburgh, not far from where I used to live for the first few years of my little Cheesy life :teehee:
    Now he lies in a shrine by my bedside :love:
    He's where my love of elephants comes from iEthan :elefant:

    Post yours! Does yours have a story? Lets counteract the upcoming spookiness of Halloween with stories of cute cuddily goodness! :cute:

    I absolutely love elephants, they're so clever. They are known to grieve and bury their dead.
    Amazing animals.
    I used to have this godzilla puppet I used to put my hand in and control its mouth with. Sadly I haven't seen it for a good few years now or I'd show it off.

    I have many soft toys, but this is the only one I have at uni with me as it is one of my favourites. This is Honey Junior, I have had him since I was a baby, so 20 years now!

    I love teddies and soft toys! This is the perfect thread for me

    Here's mine, and a story to go with him (excuse the white paint, he's so fragile that I don't want to scrub his paw too hard):

    This is Winnie the Pooh. He's my favourite teddy, and I have had him since the day I was born. I used to be smaller than him! He's very, very special to me and has gone as far as Walt Disney World. He is always on my bed. When I was little, I used to poke my finger through where that hole is so I could snuggle him whilst sucking my thumb. Of course, I don't do this anymore, but you can probably see how fragile he is from almost 18 years of constant affection. He is the most important posession, and if anything ever happened to him I'd be distraught!

    Winnie the Pooh is my favourite thing ever, I've since got over 30 Winnie the Pooh stuffed toys. He's very close to my heart!

    Don't get what you mean. I'm kind of slow so you have to explain things before hand.

    You're welcome!! I understand you, although I love all of my teddies (I have a special elephant from London as well), Winnie is the most important. It's a little dark, but I always wonder what will happen to our teddies when we die, I mean our successors may not regard them with the same sentimentality as us. I hate to think of Winnie not being kept safe and loved (but I could never give them away - unlike Andy). Probably why Toy Story resonates so strongly with me

    That is a peculiar hole in an interesting place. Is there something you're not telling us?

    I've had him 24 years. His name is Fatcat. My grandparents gave him to me when I was four days old.
