Bobbee Spilled the Beans!

Bobbee came in looking pretty shy and sad.  Little did we know, the excitement was inside!  Many stuffed animals come with "bean bags" inside their paws and their tush.  The bags are often thin, and the can pop open inside the animal, especially in the washing machine.  The "beans" (usually little plastic pebbles) migrate down, leaving a bear bottom-heavy.  

Bobbee, a bit shy about his saggy tush.

But of course, you never know what's up with the beans until you open up a bear.  You can tell that a bear's beans have spilled when your back is turned and your six-year-old exclaims "OOPS," followed by the gentle waterfall-like sound of little pebbles spilling all over the apartment.

No worries, Bobbee.  We have a dustbuster!

We washed Bobbee, restuffed, and then rebuilt the bean bags...

And tada!

Bobbee, with all his beans in the right place!

Thanks for stopping by, Bobbee!!
