These are some of the stuffed animals that I had as a kid. They were always my favourite toy to play with. I would give them all names, personalities and families. My brother and friend Kim would also sometimes join in on the storylines that we'd create for them. I even wrote a few short stories with some of them and famous people in them. I reread these like 10 years ago - they are pretty bad. I foolishly got rid of many of these animals. I still am not sure why I kept my Barbies which I didn't like as much and not all of my beloved animals. I still have that bear with the eye patch - Poochie Weiners. He was originally a first holy communion gift from grandma to Mark which probably explains why he is in such bad condition. My animals were always looked fair or good. I do have most of the animals from the top photo on the left except for the peach Friend Care Bear and the Gund polar bear. I also have the raccoon in front, the ducks and gingerbread man that Grandma Wrunski made, the little brown dog, frog, light tan bear on the top shelf which was like my first stuffed animal and the brown bear with the pajama bottoms from the other top photo. I'm pretty sure that I gave those 2 Cabbage Patch Kids to mom. We had others but sold them for like only $5. 00 each at flea markets. I would trade in most of my beanie babies collection just to have them all back if I could, as silly as that sounds.
