This Is...

This is... my most treasured childhood possession. Panda moved in with me in about 1971 after I begged my mum and dad for a cuddly panda for what felt like forever. She has been through many house moves all over the world, and knows all of my secrets. Lately, my own children have been playing with Panda (she is currently 'Kung Fu Panda')and I think she might need a bit of TLC!


Thanks to Danielle for a great theme this week - you too can join THIS IS on Angela's Three Buttons blog!

She's very cute and she still looks soft and snuggly.

She does look well-loved. Maybe a teensy bit threadbare round the nose? Very cute.

Oh! My Pandy used to look just like your Panda! He was a favourite from a very young age and is currently wearing his third "coat". (My Nan stitched him a couple of new coats over the years & I remember helping choose Pandy's new eyes & orange ribbon around his neck.)

Your Panda is gorgeous :)

Panda looks lovely. I love the fabric in the background too.

Panda is really cute, my partner's childhood toy is a Panda and it looks almost exactly the same!

He looks like a very well-loved little fella. What a history he has!!

She reminds me of Sue from Sooty. Bet she isn't such a snoot though.

My brother had almost the identical panda. Though I can safely say yours is looking quite a bit healthier than his! My brother was happy to have it discarded some years back, but my Mum just couldn't do it and it's now safely hidden away! Glad to see you still have yours!

I think more toys need to have sticky-out tongues these days.
