Little Buddies

Poppy’s Little Buddies
From left to right: Gus, Flat Bear, Suzie, Rosie and Stanley

I would like you to meet Poppy’s Little Buddies that look over her during her slumbering hours. I have been role-playing with Poppy using her toys and I love that time of day when I tuck her into bed and each little buddy says ‘good-night’ in their own way.

First we have Gus, a little dog with a very Australian male accent. Flat Bear – despite her original name, has a pretty little voice, as does Suzie. Rosie is very shy, but sounds quite posh and well Stanley, he has a very deep voice with French undertones and makes Poppy laugh.

After they have protected her through the night, Poppy shows her appreciation by ‘posting’ them through her cot and onto the floor every morning.  They certainly are loyal little blighters!
