Toy Remodel

Gimme has some very set ideas about the ideal toy.  Since most toys don't meet her strict standards, she does what she can to make-do.

She likes her toys long and she wants them floppy.  She prefers to hold them in middle and have both ends hang down in a convincingly dead manner.  The ends should sway back and forth when she moves.

If a toy doesn't meet these specifications, she remodels them until they do.  She'll carefully open a seam and remove most of the stuffing.  This picture represents a before and after from one of her remodel efforts.  She never swallows any of the stuffing or bits of toy which are worn off - thank goodness.

Normally she doesn't chew up the toy in the process, but this remodel was done a month ago, so its looking a bit worn.  She does like to gently gnaw on the extremities, so they often show more wear and tear than the rest of the toy.

Gimme removes the stuffing from almost all of her toys.  She does it with the small ones, but then usually ignores them afterward.  Being small, they don't stick out of either side of her mouth, therefore no matter how carefully she removes the stuffing, they can't convincingly simulate a dead critter.  There comes a day when she feels the need to tear up something and she roots around in the toy basket until she finds one of the de-stuffed small toys to be the victim of the day.
