Maybe Santa isn't so bad...

Remember Little Elvis' aversion to Santa?

He may not like the chubby, white-haired dude, but he does like the old elf's taste in presents. So much so, that he didn't really want any of his other presents.

Now, while Santa did a great job selecting the type of toy, his selection of fabric was not so hot.

For the first 3-4 days, that car went everywhere with Little Elvis. It slept with him, ate with him, played in the leaves with him,... you get the idea. Now, he's mainly a sleep toy.

Lightning started showing signs of wear on the first day. But after Little Elvis got sick on him, and he had to take a spin in the washer and a tumble in the dryer, he looks awful. My mom suggested hand-sewing braiding at every seam.

I don't mind the hand-sewing bit, but I'm a little concerned about getting Lightning alone. Think I'll have to sneak in and get him in the evenings.

The parachute-type fabric didn't set off any red-flags for me, but then he was the only option we found. We're already scouring around for a replacement in a different fabric.

What a bummer. Ours is a velvety plush fabric and we haven't had any issues. It is much loved.

Bummer about the bad fabric! I'm sure Little Elvis doesn't even notice, though :)

That's cute! Our son got a Curious George doll and when he opened the bag and saw the monkey squished in the bottom he screamed! When I pulled it out, he figured out what it was and hugged it. I wish I had that on video. I love that Little E likes cars so much! Can you believe they will be two soon?

That's awful about the fabric. Good luck patching him up.
