toy society drop




This little nut brown bunny was a prototype when I was working on the this pattern. Even though she didn't make the final cut for the pattern, I've loved having her sitting around my craft room to make me smile. Now, the time had come to spread the joy! 'Tis the season for joy-spreading you know.

I have had a Toy Society drop on my to do list for quite a while, and I was happy to have the opportunity recently. I was scheduled for my first mammogram (ugh) and the imaging place is in the same building with a large women's OB/GYN practice.

I figured that would be a good place to spread some diapered bunny love. There are lots of women going in and out who are expecting, and lots of women who might need bucking up after having to smash their boobs in a vise.


So I arrived before my appointment and I took the elevator even though my stop was on the first floor. No one was inside the elevator, so I feverishly tied the toy bag to the hand rail as the elevator went to the top and to the bottom again. I snapped a picture as I got off the elevator, and not a soul in sight. Anonymous drop, check.

After my own poor mams had been duly smooshed and radiated, I checked the elevator and voila, brown bunny was gone. I hope she brought someone some unexpected joy today.

If you are interested in participating in the Toy Society, you can sign up on their blog. They are currently organizing a World Wide Christmas Toy Drop!

Postscript: I checked their flickr group, and my entry was already blogged. Whoo!

  1. I simply love the idea of dropping toys. I wonder if we have anything like that in Denmark.

    Lucky is the mom and child who gets to get your wonderful, little, brown bunny. It was beautiful... :))

    I had better have a look at the current Christmas toy drop.

  9. thanks, everybody. It makes me smile thinking of this bunny making someone else smile.

    Jessabells, thanks for the good wishes, it was my first mammo. Just routine, so I join you in hoping it is all good!

    Katie, you have to laugh about them or you might cry. I can't decide what was worse, having to contort my body to that degree, or having the technician present to wrestle my boobs in position. To say the very least, it is undignified.

  12. I saw the Toy Society before and I think it is a great invention.

    I still haven't made a Bunny yet and my sewing machine is not working now (sigh that before Christmas). But once it is working and all presents are ready I WILL make one and let you know.

  13. I've been watching the Toy Society drops for over a year now, and this adorableness of a bunny is one of the very prettiest drops I've seen! Someone will be thrilled to have her, I am sure! I am going to join the Christmas drop for sure!
