I remember when I was about 7 or 8 years old I had a small toy dog teddy that was from McDonalds; it was clearly really cheap and had been free with a happy meal, but I loved it.
One day I was walking home from school with my mum and as she is a childminder, there were loads of other children walking with us… One of the little girls in the pram, who was called Grace, wanted to hold my toy dog and being the kind soul that I am, I let her hold my toy dog.
I later came to regret this decision! :( She dropped my toy dog and I never found him ever again: he could never be replaced!! :( I’ll never forget the pain or the image of my favourite teddy’s face as he pined for me when he was left behind in the street! :(
