Toadstool Has a Friend

Readers of Her Bad Mother will certainly remember the shape of her toddler daughter's security object, her lovey that she carries everywhere. It was once a Pottery Barn Plush Stacking Ring Set, but after all the rings disappeared for some reason or another, the remaining stacker stand has quite a shape. She sometimes calls it Toadstool, one of the politer possible names. Those who are not shy really need to see this picture.

When SwingDaddy told me that his folks were sending Buster a plush ring stacker, I giggled to myself and wondered if we might meet the sibling of Toadstool. A box arrived this weekend and wow, it's of a size I hadn't quite expected. Check this out, posed next to a traditional plastic Fisher Price ring stacker for scale. It's incredibly cute and fuzzy, with each ring taking the shape of (a somewhat flattened) animal.

I just really hope that Buster doesn't become attached to the same piece of it, because I don't think I'm up to the explaining. For modesty's sake, no illustration of just the stacker stand is provided.

Mama, I don't know what you're talking about!

Wow, that's huge! Very cute, though.

Does it make it any better that the ring base is red? ;)

The picture made me blush, especially the one with Kermit.

Wow, it is quite large, isn't it?
