This platypus is probably one of my first garage sale finds. I don't know how old I was when I bought it -- nine or ten, maybe younger. Definitely not much older. It was either a quarter or fifty cents.
Some of the hair has rubbed away and he's stuffed so tightly that those stitches make me nervous. I can easily imagine a seam failing. But considering it's a toy I bought during my own childhood and it might not have been very new then, I suppose I can't complain too much.
