Default My childhood has been corrected

My friend and I did our gift exchange tonight.... and this is what I got.

(This is just a picture from Google)


Why is this so cool? I've been a big fan of The Lion King ever since it came out. This toy was popular when I was a kid; always wanted it, never got it. Now that the movie is "cool" again because of the 3D stuff, the plush toys are making a comeback.... and I feel like I am 5 years old again, and floating on air because I FINALLY own this toy!!

And even though I have only mentioned like, a billion times how much I wanted this, I never in a million years expected anyone to actually get it for me. Woohoo!

There's something extra meaningful about a gift that says, "I hear you."

I had those!! I think they're still kicking around somewhere.
Love those kinds of gifts... it's not the new hit electronic or book, but something that holds some true meaning to it.

Oh, those are adorable! What a great gift. The Lion King was my favorite movie when I was a kid. It still is one of them. <3

I had those too! And the baby-to-adult Simba. I'm not sure if I still have them or not. I forced myself to get rid of a lot of my stuffed animals, just no room. =<
I thought it was so cool when I saw those in the store though! Oh, I also had one that when you hugged him he "roared" and they have one like that in stores now too! I think it's so frickin' neat.

So true.
I would much rather get something that holds true meaning VS the latest Tech stuff.
