Meet Spooky, my 2-year-old daughter's lovey.
She has tens of adorable stuffed animals and pretty little dolls (Did you see what she did to Cicciobello??). But her stuffed playmate of choice is none other than Spooky, a stuffed ghost her Grandma made her for Halloween. He's made of white felt, with hand-stitched eyes, nose and mouth.
Seriously, she cannot go to sleep or on a trip without her little ghost. She doesn't like him to take any spins around the washing machine, which is a problem for a ghost that is white and dragged everywhere. Sadly, Spooky has issues with his neck ligaments, too, and it looks like he'll need some sort of a brace soon - he can barely hold up his head anymore.
No matter that he's dusty and grey, with a broken neck - he's just perfect in my daughter's eyes and a constant companion to her days.
