mr boing

Paul put up a great post about his little boy Sam naming toys. Toby, similarly, hasn’t really been into giving his toys names – his wolf, for example, is called Wolf. When we’ve named them then the name has stuck after a while – a great teddy bear (the New Yorker of course would call it a Teddy bear) which my brother David got for him is called Finchley, because David lived on Finchley Road in London at the time. However Toby has started naming a couple of new toys – my favorite is a monkey he got over Christmas which he immediately called (and continues to call) Mr Boing.
