We have all loved Disney products at some stage of our life. Whether you have cuddled their plush toys, watched the movies or spent hours in one of Disneyland’s amusement parks they have brought us so much fun and laughter for children of all ages for years. It is a fact that many parents have enjoyed these too because at heart we are still kids.
These toys have also brought smiles to many children in hospitals all over the world. I am writing this article because of our sick mate, friend and companion.
Our dog Titan has a problem with his leg, which causes him a lot of pain. This has been going on and off for about twelve months, and still the vets still do not know what is causing this problem. After many trial medications, x-rays and other attempts to ease his pain we now have him on injections once a week for the next four weeks. We hope this will give him some pain relief.
Like all children, when something exciting happens Titan is as fit as a fiddle. When idle and lying around he limps and holds his paw up to us with big sad eyes. We feel so guilty because we cannot ease this pain.Credit: Titans Photography
Titan is telling us how much he loves his new Disney Minnie Toy
This Toy Brightened his Day
Therefore, while out shopping today, my husband noticed this beautiful huge Minnie Mouse plush toy. This is a pre-loved toy and not new. You would not believe the change in Titan’s attitude when we arrived home and let him out the front door to see his present. He was like a pup again. I have to explain, that Titan is eleven years old and still has about twenty toys, even ones from when still a puppy. He has never destroyed any of them and yes, he carries them around, from time to time especially when he wants a treat he will bring one of them to us and expect a reward.
They say on Amazon that this Premium Plush Minnie toy is about Seventeen inches tall although the one we bought is huge it measures 23” from the tip of the bow to sole of her foot. I am sure that all children would love this plush toy and has good stitching too. I believe it would also make a beautiful decoration on their bed. As this one is pre-loved I understand it has survived many cuddles and has fared very well.
This colourful toy would be great for children of all ages to cuddle or sleep with at night, and safe for tiny tots, as there are no removable parts to cause choking. The strong stitching makes it an even better buy as it will survive rough treatment.
These toys will also survive a good wash in the washing machine, although I would do it on the gentle cycle.
