A new friend and the first day of school

Yes, as predicted H decided almost instantly after delivery of Z's Minisaurus that he too needed one. He chose red, yellow and orange and his dinosaur was instantly designated Fireysaurus. He is beautiful as well see...


There's just one problem. I had to make a bit of a patch on his underside to keep his stuffing in because there was a bit of a weakness in the orange felt. I thought we had it licked. H had his first day at school today and took Firey with him to keep him company and when he came home his underside looked like this:


H said that he thought the problem was that he received too many kisses! I have confirmed a sneaking suspicion, the orange felt that I bought from a different store is definitely not up to being made into toys....Bugger! Will have to buy some orange from the original store. Oh well. He's happy about Firey and doesn't seem fazed that he's a bit explodey and is happy for me to keep it until I can fix it.

Doesn't he look fabulous in his uniform?

both dinosaur and schoolboy look fabulous. Pity about the orange felt, but you know, falling apart from too many kisses doesn't sound so bad!
