A mum has shared how her little girl has become inseparable with her plush toy POO – and even takes it to bed with her.
Little Caitlyn Wilson, three, was gifted a plush toy poo three weeks ago by her parents as a reward for using the potty all week but they had no idea how attached she would become to it.
Caitlyn now won’t go anywhere without her trusty poo toy, refusing to leave the house without it and even cuddles it when she goes to sleep.
Her mum, Carley Wilson, 40, has been left amused by her daughter’s unusual choice for a favourite toy with her previous cuddly companions being completely abandoned.
Stay at home mum Carley, who lives in Warrington, Cheshire, with her husband, Stuart, 47, an equine behaviourist, and little Caitlyn, said: “She’s got a thing for poo at the moment.
“She was a bit shocked at first as she thought it was a real poo, but then she found it hilarious. She stretched it, squashed it, she even hugged it.
“She calls it poo poo. She doesn’t take it to bed every night now but she still plays with it everyday.
“She has squeeze balls that she likes to squash but this poo has replaced them.
“She has an Iggle Piggle teddy that she’s had since she was six months old who goes everywhere with her, but the first few days after we gave her this, she took the poo instead.
“It’s died down a bit now but she still prefers him over the other animals she has.
“Caitlyn is an amusing little child. If we can spread a little of her joy at the most simple and cheap toys, then why not?”
