My Popple from childhood. I begged for this toy. BEGGED. B-E-G-G-E-D!!!! For the eternity it seemed, as a child wanting something. 😄
Even as a kid I was disappointed at how quickly toys went from being new to absolutely ragged. I tried to be really careful with my things (as careful as you can be, as a kid) and yet, the plush of my Popple looked like this within a week.
Of course, as a grown up, you recognize that it is simply cheap materials/ mass production etc. but as a kid I was really distressed. I mean, the Popple's tail fell off... I loved this toy, in the way I adore Sasha now but gosh, poor Popple; he never had a #sashamorgenthaler To make him last forever! 😣☹️ #iguessthatswhytheycallittheblues#popple#vintagetoys#plush#childhoodmemories#sadtoys#sashadolls#sashaserie#sewnonbackwards
