I won’t lie, our little girl has quite a few toys and although she plays with all of them, there is one stuffed toy that has a special place in her heart- her toy mouse. I can’t remember exactly when we bought it for her, but it must have been around the time she started nursery when she was 9 months old. Ever since then, this mouse is her constant companion. No matter where we go, mouse is coming too – to the supermarket, to nursery, on holiday – you name it. When I was a little girl, I also had a soft toy that I would not let out of my eyesight. It was a little rainbow coloured rabbit that must still be in a box in my parent’s attic somewhere. Luckily, our daughter’s mouse washes quite well (you don’t want to see the state of the toy when our little girl comes home from nursery). Her beloved toy has a “bath” (yes, I stick her in the washing machine) on a regular basis. Our little one proudly helps me to hang the mouse up on the washing line. She loves her being all soft and clean and ready for more cuddles.
