My mum, in a moment of madness, once bought herself a jumper with a kitchen scene appliquéed(sp?) onto it. It was almost as bad as a Disney motif.

My 27 yr old SIL is obsessed. But then she still lives in her childhood anyway

She sits on her dh's knee and likes to be patted, even when people are visiting. (I dont anymore) (visit that is, not sit on her dhs knee)

She has glass/porcelain pots, like honey jars. She has huge teddies in the spare room. She also has royal doulton with WTP on it. She can quite often be heard to shreik "Ohh I love Winnie The Pooh!!" When my kids were born she got them tigger outfits, which I give to the local hospital for sick children

She has no children of her own yet, but I fear the obsession will worsen when she does

When I was around 25 I would wear quite tight fitting disney tops that I bought from Camden Market to go backpacking, I have no idea why I wouldn't be seen dead in them now. I don't get the whole adult obession with disney/cuddly toys either. I worked with a 50+ woman who was obsessed with Tigger, really weird. My very intelligent sensible 24 yrd old SIL got loads of winnie the pooh stuff for Christmas, why? I am a grumpy old sod though and lost my inner child years ago.

I never got the obesssion with winney the pooh, when Tigger is clearly much more cool. I think it depends on the character TBH.
But then again, I wear a batman watch (and have batman pjs). Do comic book heros count as sad?

Proud to be wearing my Piglet T-Shirt this morning.

Clothing is disgusting, but not as bad as Disney/other cartoon tattooes <<ducks for cover>>. I love tattooes, but why would anyone want a cartoon???

cathcart Tue 17-Apr-07 08:49:37

fryalot Tue 17-Apr-07 08:49:02

It is SAD.

honestly, why would a grown adult wear a jumper with Eeyore on it
