i had a pink hippo that i remember looking forward to seeing when i got home from school. but i don't think i loved it quite as much as my two-year old nephew loves his stuffed toy, a giraffe which he calls "kelly". it has also been sewed up a number of times and its color has faded. my nephew likes holding kelly's tail when he drinks milk, and there is just no substitute for that giraffe. we showed him a similar one at the mall, he hugged it then put it right back on the shelf.
