Little critters

I have always had a soft spot for vintage stuffed animals. I love them the most when they are missing parts or the fur is worn off. I can only imagine how much they were loved by the children that played with them. Here are a few of my favorites in my collection.

There is something about old and worn loved toys...Just like the story of the Velveteen Rabbit...loved until he became real.
