The Value of Things
Some time ago at Starbucks in London I met a mother with her supercute little daughter. They liked Groggy Froggy who was sitting besides my baby son. I asked her if there were some nice children shops near by which sold handmade toys.
„Well no, they all closed. Actually, people are not ready to spend a lot on a handmade toy. They mostly buy cheap toys and then throw them away and buy new ones. It is all disposable.“ – said that mother of four.
It’s all disposable? They throw them away?
I thought about my loved and cherished Snow Queen doll. I received her as reward for my achievments at school, and I loved her and made clothes for her till I was, I have to admit, fourteen, before she mysteriously disappeared after my younger sister took her to play with her friends. I am still mourning for her.
We want leggybuddies, to be friends, real buddies. You just don't throw away your friend - do you?
If you decide to buy a leggybuddy take good care of her or him. Remember that a devoted person sat long hours while the little character was formed in her fingers and finally came to you to fill your heart with joy and your house with laughter.
I wish you all the best
