It wasn’t just my sister who brought gifts for Sweet Pea, also O’s sister and niece brought presents and here are some of them:
5-year old M had chosen both the ducks (from the shop Casa) and the elephant (H&M) for her new cousin. I asked her if the elephant had a name and she told me that her name is Elly, like the elephant in Pocoyo. The ducks actually came in a set of 5 but M wanted to keep the “rosa fuchsia” one as that was her favourite😉
The crocheted (?) teddy bear is actually a Christmas present for myself from my mother that I got a few years ago – it was sold by the Children’s Cancer fund in Sweden and I thought that it was so cute. I have more crocheted toys from Anne-Claire Petit, a Dutch designer that I really like, and Sweet Pea will get them as well of course.
For those of you who wonder who / what Pocoyo is, check out this short film:
Pocoyo exists in different languages but we know him of course only in Spanish… Another big favourite of M’s is Caillou, which she watched every evening on Youtube. During the day she would watch cartoons in French or Dutch on the various children’s tv-channels we have. There was one cartoon that she recognised from Spain, about a handy man and his tools that can talk,
can’t remember his name Handy Manny (thanks Mary T!), and he was partly speaking in Spanish even though the cartoon was in French. I guess like Dora, the Explorer, but a version for boys!?
Update: I was going to show some cute baby clothes that Sweet Pea also got from his Spanish tía (aunt) and prima (cousin) but I have problems with uploading the photos to the computer. Or rather, they get uploaded, I can look at them but then they all of a sudden disappear from the folder. When I then try to upload them again, the computer says that they already exist but they are not visible!!? Help!!
