George in all shapes and sizes.

When anyone ever asks me "What shall we name him?" the first thing that comes into my head is "I shall hug him, and squeeze him, and call him George!" which I think comes from a Bugs Bunny cartoon. Why that is stuck in my head for ever more I will never know, but it is. Odd how things like that stick. After doing a search on some of the handmade sites for the name "George" it appears I am not alone in liking that name.

The first George of the day is this gorgeous fishy drawn and printed by Jessica Doyle. He looks every inch the poshest fish that ever did swim in the sea. My favourite part of him is his eyelashes. I bet he is a big flirt and would love a quick squeeze!

From to From brings us George the Lime polka dot pant wearing hottie water bottle, so you really will want to hug and squeeze this George because he will keep you toasty warm. He really is a proper little hottie! I think he maybe winking at me.

What better name for a Giraffe than George? Skribbly Kids knows it. This is George as a 4" x 6" print but George the Giraffe comes printed on magnets, pins and more, so you could have him with you all over the house! I might need a ladder to be able to hug this George, being as he is so tall!

Joy Cookie's George looks like the kind of boy that would protest "Gerroff me!" if you tried to hug him. Mischief looks more his game than giving someone a squeeze. He is a positionable puppet, so his arms and legs are bendy, even his eyes can be moved! I think he is fantabulous!

Cheeky Nado's wee George looks to have no arms so it might be a very one way hug you give him. Maybe he can tickle you in return with his moustache. I think he looks very French so you may have to pronounce his name with a bit of an accent.

Well anyway, I think I have hugged and squeezed enough Georges for one day. So how many other Georges you can find out there looking for a new loving home.

  4. Alicia, I'm glad it's not just me then :)

    3Magpies, I think curious George must be an American thing because I'd never heard of him until recently. He does look very cute.

    Sharon, Fishin' George is gorgeous and deserving of much love!
