Years ago, my sister gave me this beautiful bunting made by kikkiK.
Then I had R.
I remember holding him, swaying gently and singing, and how he used to reach out to touch and move the dangling shapes, delighted.
For a while, they co-existed happily. Then R began to grow strong, tall and curious – and after repeated pullings, the shapes became torn, crumpled, chewed on (*shakes head*), or were lost.
It’s taken me almost three years to replace it (the original is no longer sold), but at last, our walls are adorned in a rain-drop rainbow again.
I’m not sure how long it will last, but at least I can always print and make more as needed. And now you can too!
