Foo-Foo

rewindFoo-Foo was given to me on the day of my birth way back in 1974. It was a gift from Nanny, my great-grandmother.

His name is Foo-Foo and he's still with us.

I have the exact same bear (only yellow) that my Nana gave me way back in 1981 when I was born. His name is patch and he went into my sons crib the first night he was home with us.

Does the music box in yours still work??

I have the exact same bear at home, only yellow, at least from this picture it looks the same. My Nana gave it to me back in 1981 when I was born. His name is Patch and he went into my son's crib the first night he was home with us.

We were too poor in the mid '60's, I had a rock and a stick that I shared with my brother. We couldn't afford a grandmother, so I just picked it up after sweeping the lake.

I did not realize you still have him. Brings back memories.

@Mississauga Phil

There was never a music box in mine.

Don't get me wrong - i get it - but man I bet that thing has lots of nasty little-kid microbes on it.

In fact it probably had full length arms at one point but it developed it's own form of teddy bear leprosy and look at it now..

Hmm..its really strange how much Foo-Foo looks like Patch...

Sorry about the triple post by the way.

@Ryan G

Those little-kid microbes have made me almost super-human. Practically no illnesses, ever... same with my kids.

It's like the opposite of bubble-wrapping... the strategy is to immerse yourself in little-kid microbes.
