I spotted this sad little felt Gingerbread Man in the FREE box at one of my thrifts. I asked if I could buy it since it said LIMIT ONE PER CHILD and I had no child with me. They laughed and threw it in my bag. He's small - just a handful for a kid.
This old plush Knickerbocker Gingerbread Man winds up. He plays music and his head and arms turn ever so slowly. He is really cool and slightly creepy when his head starts revolving. He's one of those things that I have bought along the way for resell, but he never left the house.
My childhood copy of The Gingerbread Man.
I love that gingham cover and that jaunty peppermint hat of his.
It must have been a real page turner because I gave it an "A+" in green crayon at some point.
I do hope I did this as a child and not last year. :)
I guess I could eek this in as an item too - a sweet vintage Gingerbread house card that was sent to me by one of my lovely, lovely readers. I have the very best followers. They send me the nicest gifts completely out of the blue. Thank you.
I don't intend to start collecting Gingerbread Man items, so this little dab will have to do. This time it is sheer quality over quantity. *Although, if I ever find a Gingy from Shrek, he will join the collection. "Not my buttons! Not my gumdrop buttons!!!!"
**Have you ever read The Gingerbread Man" He gets eaten by the wolf! Nooooooooo!
