My granny made me this bear. He's called Brilly as I thought (and still think) he was a brilliant present. My dear brother used to call him Brillo pad. I'm still plotting my revenge.
I still have a book I was given (by my Uncle Grahame) the same year as I got Brilly - Aesop's Fables.
Do you remember any books or bears from your childhood? Do you still have them?
