The most precious toy I own is a bear named Teddy.
and over the last 33 odd years his velvet has worn thin,
he has lost an eye and suffered a partial decapitation.
Still, he has pride of place on the love seat in our living room
and can often be found snuggling there with Ari.
I can only hope that the toys I make and send out into the world
will be as well loved as Teddy.
