When I was about 9 my Dad gave away all my toys to the Sick Kids Hospital. I think this is too young and to this day I still wonder where Ribena (a big purply toy) is, and Tarka (an otter) but the the one I really miss is my Soo puppet (from Sooty and Sweep) There is a pic of me and my Mum somewhere, and I'm holding Soo.
I know I cant get the original back but can you still get hold of these? (I'm guessing not) I'd like one for my daughter when she's born.
DP, bless him, bought me a Steiff bear and a new Tarka, both of which DD will enjoy.

Yay, there is one! Its from 2000 tho. I suppose its a bit unreasonable to want to find one from 1973?

with your dad. My mum gave away my Scarecrow plate and my Weetabix Book of Birds.

Anyone got those?

I still have my Ribena Bear (named for the colour of his nose)from circa 1967. But you can't have him. I would hyperventilate if he left home.

i loved sooty and sweep!i went to see them at the theatre when i was little!i had sooty and my sister had soo.i think shes probably not got her now though!hope you find one.

Threadworm and moljam. I would never dream of asking for your Bear. But do you have a pic you could post. I cant remember what my Ribena looked like. I dont think he was a bear, but that could just be me.
moljam if your sis does have Soo could she also send a pic? Would help me look. Ta X

Aw you know what you've reminded me that i used to have a Soo puppet when I was younger too, don't know where it is now though (it had a little hole in the shoulder so you might not have wanted it anyway) I'm rambling, ignore me! lol
