I recently purchased Paddington: the Movie. I thought it looked cute and whimsical, which it proved to be. Bug Boy came over to watch, but said, “Wait…I have to go get Paddington!”and ran back home to fetch said bear forthwith. Upon arrival, I noted that Old Pads was one limb short of a full bear.
A request was made for me to knit a replacement asap. Bug Boy requested I make it shaped like a peg leg, so Paddington could claim pirate status should he ever return to the high seas, as opposed to just being a stowaway.
Paddington approved of his new appendage, and Bug Boy was satisfied too. Have you ever repaired a well-loved toy? I would love to hear about it. Get out there and make life DIY!
