I was shopping in the school section of JoAnn’s Fabrics when I saw a bunch of The Very Hungry Caterpillar toys. Actually there were other Eric Carle toys there, too. I have never given Everett things in stores to play with since I’m an extreme germophobe but loved the look of this particular toy and wanted to see if he’d like it.
So… he freaking loved it!! He played with it (shaking it happily to hear the bell) and when I tried to take it from him he held on with a death grip and pulled it away, back to himself! It was the most excited I’d ever seen him over a toy. It was so cute! So, I bought it!
