Hudson got a new friend. His name is OX.
Have you heard of Ugly Dolls? I had been wanting to get one for our little guy for quite some time now, but he is pretty picky about which of his plush playpals garner his attention. He absolutely loves his Bla-Bla Mozart Monkey and Lemonade Dog, and he likes his bright yellow ducky doll and knit penguin, but other than that he doesn't show much favor to any other of his stuffed animals. When the three of us were at the beach we stopped in a cute shop that was stocked with Ugly Dolls galore, so we carefully picked our favorite unique and special character from the Uglyverse...a friendly green fellow named OX. When we got out to the car, I began to remove the tags from our new addition, and was delighted to read the little blurb that so neatly described OX:
What kind of name is OX? No, not like the animal OX,
as in HUG and KISS! How can he hug you with such
short arms? OX uses his ears! He's not a very good
listener, but he puts his ears to good use in many other
ways! OX is great at magic, and his best trick is turning
your stuff into his stuff.
His best buddy Wedgehead calls that stealing, but OX just
wants to borrow things from you for a few hundred years.
He promises to put everything back when he's done. What
he wants to steal most are kisses, whether they're in the
chocolate variety or just plain, and he promises to be your
friend if you would lend him a hand, or an ear...or like Two Dollars!
