My childhood toy


clearing out the attic the other day i was pleased to find a little toy that i was given for my 5th birthday. I was rather surprised as i thought it was long gone.
The Eskimo was knitted for me by an aunty in the 60's. After a good wash and some replacement swansdown he's nearly as good as new.
