Have you met the fifth member of our family? Geoffrey the Elephant is Finley‘s very most treasured item, he would take him everywhere if only we let him. He used to be ever so handsome and silky soft, although these days his fur is slightly more straggly, and his squidgyness not quite so squidgy. I guess a trillion cuddles, somersaults, a few wee incidents, sickness bugs, high flying adventures from your cousin’s bunk bed, and several soapy rounds in the washing machine will do that to you.
I read this week on Design Mom that the American Academy of Paediatrics say comforters (Or loveys. Or kosi.) have lots of benefits for children, including reassurance, comfort, and security. Now I have always been a great fan of children using comforters, so I couldn’t agree more with those guys.
How about you? Does your child have a favourite cuddly toy, or a comforter of some sort? Did you have one when you were little?
