His favourite toy
Alex is so attached to Ellie to the point where he screams when she falls out of the cot, and he wakes up and cries multiple times at night when she's been in the wash and is hanging out to dry. Since he was four months old, Ellie has been his constant source of comfort. He chews on her to self soothe and places her over his head as he puts himself to sleep. He giggles every time he sees her. And even though I bought other completely identical 'Ellies', he knows they are not the same.
Stu had Goggi. It looked a bit like Humpty Dumpty and was handmade by his Grandaunt Martha. It had a green and white body, orange arms and legs and brown buttons for eyes. Stu's mum told me he used to wail unconsolably and point at Goggi when it was hanging on the hills-hoist to dry.
