Guest Post by KiffsBlueted a little blue bear and spends a lot of time thinking
I would like to get your thoughts on Teeth.
As a toy bear of a certain age teeth are something that baffled me. In truth it has got nothing to do with my age really, more the fact that I have never had teeth, come to think of it I am not sure I have a mouth.
Still, I have spent my life living with Kiff and now in my dotage, I am still living with him and his family Kiff, as you may know, has two daughters.
Most of the time they are wonderful, I have recently returned to a role I have always enjoyed, that of the comforter with Kiff’s elder daughter. The snuggling up with a child at night, helping them drifting towards sleep is what we teddies live for. It is certainly better than duelling killer dust bunnies.
Off topic slightly but back to teeth, Kiff’s youngest daughter is going through a stage that Kiff and his wife call teething. It seems to be a time of much turmoil and change in a young person’s life with a substance call

However the bit about teeth I really struggle with is the attraction with putting them into the soft legs o poor unsuspecting teddy bears. You’re lying there happily thinking about your adventures with air hostesses(a story for another time) and wham in go the teeth.
It is strange babies, or at least this one, have the ability to bite their own feet and legs. They seem to be quite flexible small children. Yet for some reason, they pray on unsuspecting teddies and it not just the legs, my head, arms, nose, ears have all been sampled.
That said it would also appear that these teeth are not inanimate objects they fight back, I have often heard cries and then Kiff or his wife consoling said baby with phrases like
“are those teeth giving you some trouble” or “are those toothypops not agreeing with you tonight”
The two of them seemed pretty fine when they were gnawing at my leg.
I guess that is the joys of being a teddy some jobs are good and included cuddles some jobs are not and include teeth.
So tell me, readers, what are your views as people who have them on teeth?
