I may have been a little harsh in my reaction to the red space monkey that Noodles chose in the Bewilderwood gift shop. I feared that he would likely ‘crop up in my nightmares’, probably ready to strangle me with his extra-long arms.
But, as with most things bought in a gift shop, he was pretty much consigned to the toy box as soon as we got home.
When I saw his little face looking all forlorn my heart fractured a little bit.
So I pulled him out for a cuddle and he seems much happier now.
