December 10 – Christmas Gifts: What were your favorite gifts, both to receive and to give? Are there specific gift-giving traditions among your family or ancestors?
When I was planning to write about Larry the Lion, I decided to do a little research on him. He was made by Mattel and had 11 sayings. You can find a vintage Larry the Lion on ebay for about $40. The ones with the whiskers still intact are the desirable ones.
I don't know what happened to Larry the Lion, hopefully he went to a good home. I do remember he was losing some of his fur and didn't sit up very well. Ahh, what a nice childhood memory.
