Stuffed Animal Family (picture entry)

Our little family. I built Wesley (cat) in 2007 and all of my friends wanted to become family to him. He never had a dad, so David gladly filled the role. I built Curly Kim in 2001. When Build a Bear first opened at the King of Prussia Mall in Summer 2001, Nan took me that August and we built her. I was obsessed with Eminem at that time and named her after his ex-wife. Since the bunny had a curly coat, I added “Curly.” I wanted to add Curly Kim to the family.

I’m beyond grateful to have such a loving, kind, and patient partner. He doesn’t mind joining in on the silly and taking photos of it. Thank you, my love.

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    Now you’ve got me wanting a huggable, smoochable, plush stuffed animal menagerie of my very own. I’d have to start with a Philly Phanatic, though — sorry. I also want Nadja’s Ghost Doll from What We Do in the Shadows. 🙂 If you and David aren’t watching that vampire comedy series yet, you should. It’s a hoot. Your animals are cute and cuddly. I’m sure that whenever you hold Curly Kim in your arms or even look at her, the memories come flooding back of the day you and Nan visited the King of Prussia Mall and built her at the newly opened Build a Bear. Do you realize that Curly Kim was “born” only a few weeks before the 9-11 terror attacks?

    Thank you for sharing these heartwarming pictures of you, David and your lovable fur babies. (I have a food baby, but it’s just not the same 🙂

    Enjoy the rest of your week, dear friend JM!
