Photostory Friday - Meet Tigger

PhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek

Tigger is daughter's special teddy. Husband bought Tigger for daughter on the day she was born and he's been her favourite ever since.

Daughter cannot get to sleep without him. She turns him upside down and presses his label to her face. She gives demonstrations on how to do this correctly!

Tigger is not allowed to leave the house (for fear of losing him). Instead, he stays at home and plays with the other teddies when daughter is out, but he always returns to his spot on the stairs ready for her return.

Yesterday he underwent surgery to repair a ripped seam. He is convalescing nicely.

The other night when she couldn't sleep I heard strange noises coming from her room. Drawers opening. Rustling, clinking.

Later when I went to check on her I found this:



Tigger had been Izzified!

My daughter has a revolting doll that is so loved it's head paint is peeling and her clothes are just, well you don't want them anywhere near your nose!

That's one cool Tigger! As I missed the hundredth post, big congrats on your hundred and first! I really enjoying dipping into your world.

I think it's definitely improved Tigger's cred!

Really enjoyed your comment on my `Olympic mettle' post. I actully remember Sharon Davies.

I had the great privilege of taking my children to a brilliant day at the 2000 Olympics.

Congratulations on your 100th post.

Thought I'd comment, I swing by from David's occasionally. Don't you love how little girls like to tidivate their toys? I remember a panda with fairy wings . . . .mine's now 23 and winging around the world! The Panda is still on her bed waiting for her to come home! Congrats from down under on your 100th too! (from a once Manchester girl! Say hello to Old Trafford for me!

Tiaras & Tantrums said...

LOVE THIS!! My daughter dresses her animals all the time in doll clothes - throws the dolls in the closet and plays with the stuffies!!

Robyn said...

An extreme makeover. Tigger is stylin' now. Great story.

MamaGeek said...

Oh now THAT is hilarious and oh so sweet. I love it!

Sass E-mum said...

Fantastic stuff. This means I can look forward to Peaches doing something like this one day to Pink Duck.

Alexandria said...

Aww what a wonderful post! My son has a stuffed lamb that he cannot sleep without. My best friends bought it for him when he was born.

WM - have just left a ridiculously long comment which I fear didn't make it (had a 'web page expired' notice when I hit the publish button). Will pop back soon to see if it made it but if not will have to try and remember what I said!!

Cecily R said...

So cute!! My daughter does that kind of stuff all the time to her various snugglies. Makes me smile.

Evie has to sleep with a fleece blanket my husband brought home from the bank he used to work for. It was a promotional item they had extra of. It's ugly and doesn't match her bedding but it is required for her to sleep well.

Great PSF! Thanks for playing this week!

Everyone needs that special something. I had a teddy bear my sister made for me. I took him everywhere, I gave him to my oldest daughter when her "pink baby" had to be retired. She is 12 and still sleeps with him!
Great story! Thanks for sharing it and her much loved Tigger.

Little girls are the best! Must accessorize!

Happy 100th post! And here's wishing for many more to come xx

lisaschaos said...

Ahh, that's sweet. Only one of my kids had a "friend". I had a kitten when I was small.

I love how she dressed the Tigger, maybe she will be a hairdresser.

GoneBackSouth said...

He looks well loved and very glam.

Just to confuse you, this is the comment I tried to post the other night which failed - so here it is again (probably not worth the wait!!!):-

Hi WM – just left a response to your comment on mine, then thought I’d pop over here since I haven’t been around for such a long time. Glad I did. Youngest daughter (whose godmother is Family Affairs – God help them both!) has a similar favourite cuddly to Izzy. Hers is called Bun Bun and is, unsurprisingly, a rabbit. I spotted her in a shop in Twickenham a week or so before L was due and popped her in the cot waiting by my bedside. She had ‘welcome to the world’ embroidered on her little beige T-shirt, but as the weeks went by and baby didn’t appear I started to fear she was an ill omen. Mercifully L eventually arrived safely (tho umbilical chord snapped in half post delivery which goes to show that you can never be too sure until they’re actually out) and Bun Bun is much beloved (by me as much as L!). Whenever she ventures out of the house I’m having kittens in case she’s lost! What I love is the fact that L has picked up on the fact that Bun Bun is special to me and so that makes her extra special to her too. That’s sweet. And like Izzy she occasionally pretties her up with hairclips and hair bobbles 

Afraid I don’t share your fascination with numbers (which is why I remain confused as to why I married an accountant!) – mine is with words.

As you know, I love singing too, but don’t think I have enough time in my life at the moment to warble with a useless choir, let alone a renowned one. Will have to get some lessons instead, which I’ve long been promising myself. Will listen to your broadcast in a mo. Very exciting. Shame about the dress.

Funny to think of you down there while I’m up here, just a view away. Wonder what you’re up to right now? Beautiful day today, as you say. Makes all the difference in the world…

How cute! My daughter has a teddy bear she has been sleeping with since she was 6 years old. That thing has definitly seen better days!! But she can't sleep without it.

Everyone has stuff that makes them feel better. I'm glad it's just a stuffed animal, I know people who have things that are a lot more dangerous/harder to lose.
