Christmas is rapidly approaching (hooray!). We wanted a way to get Pickle into the spirit, but still to incorporate things she already loves. Since she’s a huge Dr. Seuss fan (the girl has been able to recite The Cat In the Hat since she was 27 months), we were super-excited to check out the Cindy Lou Who doll from Manhattan Toy. (Check out Cindy here: LINK)
She only runs $20, but she’s super soft and cuddly – no hard edges to poke either me or my preschooler in the ear at 3 a.m., which is a pretty big plus in my book. It also makes her age-appropriate for smaller kids, as well. She’s about 15 inches tall, so she’s also a good size – fits in play cribs and car seats and such.
When we opened the box and I showed her to Pickle, it’s probably an understatement to say she was excited. Please forgive the graininess of these photos:
That would be Little A dancing around the room with and hugging Cindy Lou Who.
That was from about a month and a half ago, and she’s still obsessed. Here’s a photo from last week – she still sleeps with her every night:
She hadn’t been familiar with the story of the Grinch last Christmas (I’d felt like maybe she was a little too young) – but she is ALL OVER this story this year. She loves having Cindy Lou Who (who she sometimes accidentally calls “Lolly Lou”) help all of her other stuffed animals stop being grinches. The doll is very durable, so even all of this abuse hasn’t hurt her a bit!
