When I told my 5 year old he would be receiving Comfy Critter Seymour the Shark and showed him what it was, he could not wait until it got here. Whenever he saw a box that seemed large enough arrive, he'd be right there waiting for me to open it. Well we received it, and he loves it.
He puts it on and becomes shark boy...
Now I normally wouldn't allow him to take a blanket to church with him, but since he would be hanging out with other kids in a setting where they let the kids just have fun anyway, I allowed him to bring it just once, and boy did he have fun!
I'm sure he was headed out the door intending to use this as a replacement for his coat during this wintery Chicagoland weather, and of course I had to intervene. It was totally cool with me when he asked to come back down for it after being sent to bed, though. I should have just kept it a secret, and given to him as a Christmas gift, buuuut if I did that, I wouldn't be able to let you know what I think about it, or should I say he thinks about it. I personally like it. It's kid friendly and seeing the way it makes my son happy leaves me feeling a little extra bubbly as well.
There's a cool collection of these guys for boys and girls:
