#246 – Snug

One of my favorite stuffed animals as a kid was a Winnie the Pooh bear that had a wind up music box inside. It played the “Winnie the Pooh” song which I would sing along with in my head…

“Winnie the Pooh, Winnie the Pooh, la la la la la la la la.”

I actually have no idea if the rest of the song has lyrics. I would wind it up as tight as I could and then place my head on his belly as the song played over and over. My favorite part was the sound of the whirring parts inside during the pause that happened before the song started over again.

Today’s Biff is up there.

    Deep in the Hundred Acre Woods where Christopher Robin plays
    You’ll find the enchanted neighborhood of Christopher’s childhood days
    A donkey named Eeyore is his friend
    And Kanga and Little Roo
    There’s Rabbit there’s Piglet and there’s Owl
    But most of all Winnie the Pooh

    Winnie the Pooh
    Winnie the Pooh
    Chubby little cubby all stuffed with fluff
    He’s Winnie the Pooh
    Winnie the Pool
    Willy Nilly Silly old Bear

    (from memory)

    There’s something nostalgic about that whirring sound in between the song ending and beginning. I like it.

    Oh, man, I had one of those, too. In fact, I’m pretty sure I still have it somewhere.

    funny thing is I think I used to have one of those bears too when I was a young, and I think I used to do the same thing. Funny how I’d completly forgotten about that until you mentioned yours

    I had a Barney that did that. His mouth would move and to get that sound i would hold his mouth closed and listen to the gears grind as he tried to sing his song. he also would randomly sing little sections of the song when his batteries were down. It freaked my babysitter out to no end when barney would be sitting on the couch with out me and suddenly start singing ‘i love you, you love me!” he was really happy when my new favorite toy became a teddy bear with a cassete tape player in his stomach that played along to matching books. He had a name, but i forget what it was. i just remember he wore an Orange vest and i had eight books and tapes i would play over and over again while i looked at the pictures.

      Teddy Ruxbin? Was it Teddy Ruxbin? I had one when I was little, though it sounds like you had a more modern version.

      1. kingklash says:

        Teddy Ruxpin, toy icon of the 80’s. Many stories are told of kids playing other cassettes in theirs. Teddy sings Manilow! Teddy sings the best of Alice Cooper! The more recent models are tech’d-up enough to only work with their own software.

          I had a Mother Goose that read nursery rhymes. My mom used her to play salsa music. Also we switched the goose’s tapes with Teddy sometimes.

      2. SurveySays says:
