Mr. Waggles is home!! You can swipe to see 2 different photos of me with my childhood version.
This same bunny used to be at my grandparents house, so of course, it reminds me of lots of good memories. I got to see my Nana this weekend and my heart is so happy. Her and my Pop lived just across town from us when I was growing up and they were my parents' go-to babysitters, they were really like second parents to me. I spent A LOT of time with them (we had the McDonald's toys to prove it ). I miss my Pop a lot and love little reminders of him. I look through photos all the time! Anyways, one day, they let me have the bunny when I was a bit older, so I took it home to add to my personal collection of stuffed animals. When I was 10, my brothers and I, along with some friends, made a movie with our video camera (totally pre-youtube days!). My oldest brother was really creative with filming and editing and whatnot. The bunny was used as a character (evil boss) in the film and my brother grew attached to the bunny, so I let him have it. Now my niece and nephews enjoy the bunny. My brother recently found an identical one on eBay and alerted me right away, so I snagged myself a twin bun! The original bunny is named Mr. Wiggles, and I didn't want my bunny being a total imposter, so we decided on Mr. Waggles (bro's suggestion). I love his classic look and floppy ears so much.
