For ease of reference all of DD's toys are called Dave. She can change each later as she chooses (she's 5 months), but I like the idea of a small blonde girl solemnly informing Grandma that, yes, this one, too, is called Dave

*blackcurrants, my DS's boy doll is also called Baby. He thought long and hard about that one grin.

DS also has a Build a Bear bear who is the world's first gay superhero bear - very pink, very fluffy, named Captain Bare Bear and wears a body hugging superhero outfit (with matching gimp mask) when not hanging around the house in the nude. His DGM was mortified when she took him to BaB and he came home with Captain, but we have welcomed him to our familial bosom.

I'm starting to wonder if 30 month old DS1 lacks imagination. His IKEA doll is known as 'baby' and, despite my eager promptings when pg with.DS2, baby has never been put to bed, dressed up, cuddled or fed, and is instead genially ignored. As is his attitude towards his new baby brother, which is quite convenient smile

At his age I had a soft-toy tiger, called Nutty "because he likes nuts." no idea how I knew that but I was absolutely certain.

When I was pg with DS1, my then 3yo DD, and my friend's 3yo DS were having a discussion with me over possible baby names. DD was insistent that my baby was going to be called Bubbles. For a girl OR a boy. Because it was a "Unicorn (unisex) name, for girls AND boys" And my friend's DS thought that Dragonblood was a perfectly 'unicorn' name for boys or girls too.

Strangely enough, neither name made the short list. For which DS1 is eternally grateful.

My Dbro had a stripy teddy that I won at a fair and gave to him when he was about 18mo. (10 yr age gap). He called it dancey bear. He still has dancey bear. He said that the rainbow stripes made it look like it was dancing.

I was singularly unimaginative as a child. My favourite teddy was a grey mouse that I had been given one Easter. Hence the name "Easter mouse" Boring fart that I was and still am

Still have Easter mouse, though he was fostered by DD when she turned 2yo, and formally adopted by DD on his 20th birthday...

I used to have a toy rabbit called Nesbitt. His full name was Rabbit C. Nesbitt.

When asked DS3 will introduce himself as Donkey Kong.

DS's 12&3 all agreed that the new baby should be called Princess Peach... Katie Price, I am not, so she has a sensible name.

I had a doll I named December. I actually still quite like that one.

I had guinea pigs when I was six, two sisters and one of them had a baby girl. My dad named the sisters Penguin (the black and white one) and Biscuit (the brown one) and asked what I wanted to call Biscuit's baby. I went for Mary hmm but he persuaded me into calling her Crumb. grin

My DS had a doll called 'Egg' from the age of 2-4. He also has pink and white, the pink and white guinea pig and Daisy the andrex puppy.

My sister had an imaginary friend called SisterBloke outs self

DS has rather imaginatively named his dolly "baba". Maybe it's short for Babouska? grin

Also, her hands are called Handy and Mandy. They have distinct personalities. As hands do.

My dd's toys all have extremely literal and dull names. Like London bear, Irish bear, kitten, etc. She is however going to change her own name when she gets married. To Fiona.

FakePlasticLobsters Mon 11-Feb-13 20:25:13

I used to have, actually I still have, a yellow bear called Oh No!

The exclamation mark is part of his name.

DS has a bear called Ken Next Door.

My not very creative imaginary friend was called, Jimmy Krankie blush

TandB Mon 11-Feb-13 18:32:30

Oh and when I was very small I had an imaginary friend who was a pink elephant called Basto.

If I wasn't very clear, people used to do this face hmm

DS1 has two toy dogs called Smelly Doggy and Fluffy Doggy. No matter how many times they go in the washing machine he can tell the difference.

DS2 has a different toy dog called....Doggy. Although he is currently known as Getting a Bit Smelly Doggy.

Oh the confusion.....
