Enter child number 2 - Biddy - who was born a year later and thus had no blue meow. Biddy fell in love with blue meow and would take him away from her sister whenever she got the chance. Which would lead to crying and screaming on Kik's part.
We've been trying to find Biddy her own kitty for the last year, but none were acceptable. Then a few weeks ago, I discovered a Puzzle Calico Cat sold online at Douglas Toys. The kitty was the right color and the right length, and the description even said it was floppy. Dare I hope?
When the cat came in the mail, Biddy instantly fell in love. The cat was super soft, and floppy and oh so cute.
The cat is also skinnier (leaner) than a typical stuffed animal. Which not only makes it look more like a real cat, but also makes it easier for Biddy to hold and cuddle with.
The ultimate test came when Kik saw it for the first time and said "It's okay if Bid takes my blue meow sometimes, because I can just hold hers."
If you're kids aren't interested in cats, Douglas Toys also has a huge selection of other kid's toys. They have everything from toy dinosaurs to dragons, unicorns to farm animals.
Kik has really wanted a girls toy purse for awhile now, and this Sillo Purse is so cute,
I might just have to give in.
