Alex, my 7-year-old LOVES his stuffed animals. He also has a rough-and-tumble side, but he's definitely got a tender side. Teddy, his bear, was a Christmas gift two years ago, and he's had more than his fair share of love. Truthfully, he looks a little scruffy these days, but Alex loves him nonetheless. Teddy's actually a pretty good subject to practice on. He never complains and he always has that sweet expression. Alex was pretty cooperative for these, too!
