Can you spot Spot?



Inspired by Adam's Superhero Softies, I have been looking at revamping some of the soft toys in our home and have a few ideas up my sleeve!

If you are South African, you will probably recognise these very cute little labrador puppies. A few years ago you could collect them when you purchased a certain brand of toilet paper. I have kept these little pups all this time...they were just too cute to part with!  Anyway, I recently realised that they look just like the character Spot. All they needed were, well a spot or two, and that little brown tail of course! So I took some brown felt and made the necessary additions. This little one that you see photographed was given as a gift with a Spot book to a little friend.


Little One has been a huge Spot fan since about 18 months of age. I think that these are terrific books for tots, particularly for language acquisition.

I was thinking, this makes  for a lovely Birthday or Christmas gift...adding a personalised soft toy to match a book.

Till next time...

Fantastic idea! Those little pups are oh-so-cute, and adding them with a book is just perfect.

You've won me over _ i'm a fan now - I have 2 daughters, one big, one little, and 2 spot the dogs; one big, one little... and they go everywhere with us - so anyone who pays homage to Spot the Dog (especially in such a cute and crafty way) is my friend for life!
