If you’ve ever even temporarily misplaced your tot’s lovie -- that threadbare security blankie or ratty stuffed puppy your child can’t live without – then you know that the infinite comfort that these worn-in toys provide can end up soothing you as much as they do your kids. We need them when we leave our toddler with a new sitter, at daycare drop-off, or during the inevitable meltdown in the frozen food aisle. Here, our tribute of thanks to the lovies of the iVillage Community.
Keep on the Sunny Side “My daughter is in love with Sunny, her stuffed horse (who now looks like a camel). Sunny has different clothes for bed, a dollar store bathing suit for summer, a sundress and a sweater. My daughter packs picnics for her if we are going somewhere, and she even brought a plastic donut for Sunny when we were taking a trip to the donut store.” -- Cheryl
