Toys for Friends

My friend, WN gave birth to a baby boy in Dec 08. So before I went back to Singapore (early Jan 09), I made a rocking horse soft toy for her boy. There should be a bell inside the rocking horse, but I was in a rush and I didn't have time to search for it. I found a cat's toy at the corner of the house, which was left by the previous owner and I even thought of dismantling it and get the bell for the rocking horse! Well, I didn't do that, of course, that would be unhygienic, wouldn't it? ;-)

Another friend, LG requested a toy for her 3-year-old boy. I made a whale, which is really huge! I was worried that it wouldn't fit into the luggage but luckily it did. Then our group of friends had a Chinese new year gathering and I brought it along so that I could pass it to LG. With a huge plastic bag in hand, I traveled by buses and train, and it took more than 1.5 hours to reach my friend's apartment. Just to illustrate how big the plastic bag was, it's slightly longer than the length of my legs. And I'm 170cm tall, so you could imagine the stares I got from the people on the street!

What homely toys you've made, awesome! They make totally good safekeeps even when the child gets old. Your friends have a piece of your love with them for a lifetime. =)
