Competiton – Win a Playskool Lullaby Gloworm

I reviewed Playskool’s gloworm a few weeks ago and they have very kindly given me another to competition off. so here is that review again in case you missed it followed by the Q.

My daughter has always slept with a variety of cuddly toys,  a different one most nights as the mood takes her.  Playskool then sent me Gloworm and she has not been out of Annalise’s bed since. Gloworm gives off a warm light and a selection of lullabies and both gently fade away. Lisi plays them for a while and hums along is clearly conforted by the light.  (It comes in blue or pink and takes 3 x AA batteries.

 We no longer need to leave the hall light on. She and Gloworm have formed  a very happy friendship. Lisi is 3. I wish we had had one of these earlier but I have a feeling they will be firm pals for some time to come. (Currently on amazing offer: £7.49 at Argos)


As I said I have been given one of these lovely toys to give away to you my dear reader so if you would like one or it would make a handy Chritsmas gift do enter. You simply need to tell me who your best cuddly toy was when you were little.


UK and Ireland entries only please. 1 entry per person. Winner picked at random on Nov 2nd Baby Budgetings decison is final. Prizes unclaimed after 10 days will be reallocated.

    ooh to choose just one is hard! I think the most enduring cuddly toy I had, was a large blue teddy, who when i was given him was the same size as me (I was about 2)He was very soft, but i loved the fact he was a bright royal blue colour, no way would I have gone to bed without him!

    My favourite cuddly toy was a tatty old teddy that I called “Funny Teddy” that was a freebie from a washing powder promotion. It had no arms and was white so I thought he looked odd, hence the name “Funny Teddy”. I still have him, in fact he is sitting on my childhood bed at my mum’s house right now…

    My favourite teddy was called Teddy. When I was 3 and my brother was 1, he had an operation and I felt scared for him so I let him cuddle Teddy to make him feel better. Unfortunately, my mum thought I wanted my brother to have Teddy! I didn’t have the heart to say I wanted him back as my brother was so happy but I did cry myself to sleep that night!
    My brother is now 25 and still has him (and I still miss my Teddy).

    My oldest friend is my knitted rabbit Billy. He was named after the line in Waltzing Matilda which, at the age of 3, I misinterpreted as “he waited for his Billy Boy”. He had a woolly pom pom tail which I clutched tightly as I sucked my thumb and we were inseparable for many years. He lives in my chest of drawers in my bedroom and still gets cuddles although, at the age of fifty, I no longer suck my thumb.

    I was given a little dog when I was 4 for Christmas I took him everywhere! I called him Bill as my sister was a big Rupert Bear fan and Bill was his best friend.
    I think his head must have come off 4 or 5 times split seams all over the place but I always stiched him back up. My mums friend made new clothes for him (to hold the stuffing in!) and now 26 years later he sits on my bedside table in a mini arm chair not to be touched! Then to my amazement last year I was in a local charity shop and found an identical “Bill” good as new!! couldn’t believe it! My 4 year old daughter now has a special friend of her own

    My favourite cuddly toy was a yellow CareBear. I took him everywhere and was heartbroken when he got accidently left behind at Manchester Airport when we were going on holiday. No one handed him in and I like to think that some other little person took him home to love as much as I did.

    A small plain teddy by the name of Sooty (don’t know why as he was a golden colour). He was bought for me by my father when I was a couple of days old and spent every night with me until I got married. He was my best friend, listening to all my moans, anxieties and joys. He is now 50 and quite threadbear, still much loved and never too faraway, although he doden’t share my bed anymore.

    When I was really little I never really had a teddy to cuddle so my big brother bought me for my 4the birthday.. and it is the best teddy in the world! It went everywhere with me… I even took it to university..not only because it was so cuddly but because it was a special present from my big brother. As I type this my new baby girl is cuddlying it upstairs for her morning nap.. its a bit battered and smelly but to be honest.. I would love it back so if i won the glow worm -that would be a great trade for I think and then I might get my favourite teddy back!! (Either that or I can replace it with the glow worm… not sure what my hisband would think!)

  55. Gemma Harrison

    My little pink bunny called Eyeshigher, as one eye was higher than the other, which my older sister won at the fair and very generously gave to me!

    I had a white Popple (remember those? They were an 80’s toy that folded into its own pouch) that went everywhere with me. Unfortunately an incident involving a long car journey, travel sickness and the resulting wash in a washing machine, meant that his lovely soft fur went hard and rough and its hair matted.

    I had a brown teddy bear which my nan gave to me when I was only 2 months old. I cuddled this teddy all through my childhood, and now I’m 61 years old and still have teddy, though he is looking quite threadbare. He is very special to me, with his hands and feet patched up by my nan with her old stockings.

    I had a Hearts FC teddy which was Maroon and White (club colours). It went everywhere with me until one day I went to the shops with my mum. I quickly got bored so sneaked outside and was peering in the window looking at the display when a car pulled up and out jumped a guy in a Hibs (local rivals) top and pulled the teddy out my hands and jumped in car and sped off with my teddy laughing with his mates.
    I never saw Teddy again and had many nightmares wondering what happened to him.

    I was never particularly attached to a cuddly toy when I was younger. I think it’s because I have an identical twin and she was my security ‘teddy’! Same for her! We did have our own language though, does that count? πŸ™‚

  83. October 28, 2010 / 4:09 pm

    Mine was a filthy little dog teddy called ‘dogga’. It belonged to my older brother and was only about the size the free little teddies you often get with babies beddings and magazines and things. He was yellow (originally) with brown long flat ears i loved to carry him by. I dont know what happened to him as i haven’t thought about it for years, but i have a suspicion that he is in my dads loft now, 20 something years on and may take a little peek this weekend- for nostalgia’s sake!

    My favourite teddy bear was called Bruno.
    He isn’t a normal, standing upright style teddy (I use the present tense because I still have him!), he’s crouched down on all fours like a dog lying on a rug, and loks more realistic than your average teddy.
    Because he looked so like a dog, I put a dog lead on him and used to drag him around the house behind me (which was easier said than done as I was only five, and he was as big as I was!)

    I used to have a pink panther toy that was as big as I was. I used to dress him up in my dreses and took him everywhere with me. I must have left him somewhere because I can remember him not being there any more but I can’t remember why – suspect my mum tried to wash him and he disintegrated!

    I had so many cuddly toys because my gran was a very keen sewer. I think my favourite from an early age was a little tiger that I imaginatively called “Tigger”. He got very bashed and thread-worn and eventually lost his tail.

    I had a “Poggle”, it had a back pack that when turned inside out. became a sleeping bag. I was convinced he used to come to live at dark (think I had watched Gremlins too many times!!!). In fact, I’m pretty sure I still have him, up in a box in my mums loft. I think he deserves a place on the shelf near my computer.

    He came with a red waistcoat you could take off and had a huge round belly.

    As i got older i told him all my problems and cried into him many times as sad things happened. He of course came with me when i moved into my own place and my children all know him as my bear.

    There were 2 (they were an item! Or a matching set kind of thing) – Little Ted and Tinkerbell. They were both made of white sheepskin (or a very good quality fur). Little Ted had a really big yellow scarf that he used to wear that grandma knitted for him – it was about 2 inches wide and about 2 foot long (the bear was only about 8inches tall), so it was wrapped around his neck very many times.

    Tinkerbell was a squirrel – so called as she had a red ribbon with a bell on around her neck (don’t think it would be allowed these days – choking hazard or similar) – anyway, I survived. However, later in life I used to look at my squirrel and realised that it could probably be, in fact it probably was, a cat! ( I know, difficult to imagine how you could get the 2 confused – if I ever unearth Tinkerbell I will put up a picture and let you decide – haven’t seen her for many years though, so she could have got misplaced somewhere along the way)

    I don’t remember having any cuddly toys but do remember i had a square of sheet i would never be without and hated when mum washed it.
    When my son was small i bought him a gorilla from a zoo in Tenerife so as you can imagine when it fell to bits it was very hard to replace and he would not have a different one, when i managed to find one similar i stocked up and bout 3 so i could swap them over without him knowing. he only found out last year as i have kept the last one and i told his girlfriend the story and she spilled the beans .. even at 20 he sulked!

    I had (and still have) a yellow teddy with a shiney black nose and a squeak that works when it wants to. My nanna made this for me when I was born and I love it more now as it brings lovley memories flooding back.

    I had a grey teddy bear called Paul. I don’t know why he was called Paul but I played with him all the time and learnt to sew making clothes for him when I was about 10. He is very battered looking now

    A teddy that belonged to my mum. Very threadbare and tatty and not at all cuddly, it had jointed arms and legs. Cannot remember what happened to it!

    My favourite soft toy (and I still have her and she sits on a chair in my bedroom) was a cuddly panda bear style soft toy with a red ribbon around her neck. I couldn’t say Panda when I was very small so I called her Pandarer! And to this day, she is still called Panderer!

    Hi, i had a cloth doll with wild pink wool hair! I called her Fifi .. she had clothes on but they didn’t come off which i remember i was cross about as I used to take her to bed with me & ‘she should have been in her pyjamas’ like i was!!

    I never had a teddy bear until my Nan bought me one when i was about 14 .. i still have the bear on my bedside table but i don’t know what became of Fifi!

    I had a teddy bear that my gran bought me when I was born. She named him Barney and although he looks pretty threadbare now, with loose limbs and an almost invisible face I still have him sitting on a chair in my bedroom – I’m 50!!!

    I had 5 best friends, all of whom slept with me in a single bed. 3 teddy bears, one doll and a toy dog. Not much room left for me!

  223. November 2, 2010 / 10:45 am

    I was given a teddy when I was born 4 weeks early. I still have it now. It’s a little brown teddy with a pink tummy. I have slept with it on my bed since I was little and it means the world to me as it was my first ever present that looked over me while I was in hospital as a new born

  224. November 2, 2010 / 10:46 am

    My godmother gave me a cuddly dog pyjama case when I was about 4, I never used it for my pyjamas, though I occasionally hid my blankey in the little compartment, and sometimes couldnt remember where I’d left it!

    Aaaawww my fav was always ‘big Ted’ I still have him now and you can tell he’s been well loved with all the operations he has had (lots of thread showing where seams needed mended). Even though I loved my dolls and all things Pink, Ted is Grey.

    My favourite cuddly toy was my Care Bear – Baby Tugs Bear, a little blue bear in a nappy! I have to admit I still have him hid away in a rather sorry state somewhere in the garage πŸ˜€

    When I was litle I had a little fabric doll that I named “lollypops” and she was dragged everywhere with me from my parents bed to nursery school. I couldn’t sleep with out her. Last year when moving house after getting married, I emptied a box and there was Lollypops who now lives in my forever memory box.

    I had a rag doll called Jemimah who was similar to the one that was on Playschool in the 70’s.

    I loved her little blue checked dress and brown wool hair. I never did find out what happened to it…..cries….

    I had a brown bunny rabbit pyjama case with floppy ears called Soona, no idea why she was called that. I remember I used to pretend to feed her then I would stuff the belly with clothes or PJ’s so she looked full and happy. I used to keep ribbons and christmas bows and tie them around her ears like hair bobbles. And she was the only cuddly toy I had on my bed all of the rest weren’t as impotant and were only on the floor or wardrobe. I got her as a present for my 1st birthday and still have her, saving for my granddaughter due in Feb !!

    Mine was a hand made bear I called Kevin I still have him to this day and my son loves playing with me even if he is looking a little worse for wear

    Mine was a regular looking teddy called “ted” appropriately, he was bought for my brother when he was born, i was 2ish but he didnt want him and i did, subsequently i had a sheep that he liked so it was a fair exchange!! We still have both now, although a but threadbare but much loved!!!

    Lady (the plush doggy from Lady & the Tramp)! My Aunt sent her over from America and I loved her so much… after a hair cut (from my brother) and lots of washing and hugging she looked a little less Lady-like but up until the age of 7 I took her everywhere with me. She was lovingly restuffed twice and lost an eye along the way, but still has a place in my daughters heart… she is sat at the end of her cot as I type x

    My favourite is a white (well more grey now) teddy called Rosie. My Dad bought her for me on the day I was born, so she’s now 37yrs old. I have recently passed her on to my Daughter as my Daughter lost her favourite cuddly when we were out on her birthday last year, my little girl was heart broken and couldn’t get to sleep so in the end I gave her Rosie on the condition she doesn’t take her out.side.

    I have a teddy bear (a dog) Called Ted. He is older than me. My mum got him for me before I was even born. He is 30years old now and sits in my office on top of my bookcase with the rest of my teddy collection. He has been re stuffed and repaired many a time, and is still marked in pen with my name from when I was 12 and went on a school trip.
