MUCH LOVED Photographer Marc Nixon made a series of portraits of teddy bears and other stuffed animals along with their age, size and history. Some were very much loved :-)

PS. It’s Friday!
"It doesn’t happen all at once," said the Skin Horse. "You become. It takes a long time. That’s why it doesn’t happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand."

I’M NOT CRYING, IT’S JUST BEEN RAINING ON MY FACE.

I still have my 32 year old stuffed unicorn!
My mom put him through a hot water wash years and years ago which you should NEVER do to acrylic furcloth, so his mane melted, and all the stuffing in his back legs was packed tight and his front legs were almost empty. Just last year I finally felt I had enough sewing skill to attempt to fix him. I very carefully opened him up along the center of the neck and emptied him out. It turns out the weighted material in his legs was very fine gravel! I washed him while he was empty, then restuffed him with plastic beanie pellets and crafter’s choice polyfill (which is my favorite), and gave him a new mane and tail made from the highest quality long pile faux fur I could find. He still shows his age - worn velveteen hooves, discoloration on the horn, pelt a bit lumpy - but he looks much better.

I’ve been laughing for three years over the fact that in ye old England you could chose to have ‘trial by cake’ in which you ate a piece of cake and if you choked you were guilty and if you didn’t you were innocent, and the only time it was used the guy on trial fucking choked and was executed for it
