Let’s face it, guys – our childhoods were awesome. It was the time in life to play, run free in the park with no worries or responsibilities, get excited whenever it was our birthday or Christmas, and of course, to feel completely ecstatic whenever we got a new toy. Most people had many different toys to play with during their childhood, and a lot of us can still remember how special they were to us. That’s precisely why many folks like to keep their toys – as a way to remember this beautiful phase of life forever. However, it’s not only us humans who love toys when we’re young – our pets do, too. Here is a very special selection of pets that grew up, but never got tired of their favorite cuddly toys. Enjoy!
#1 The Yellow Duck
How cute is this scene below?! The first picture is a gorgeous little kitten sleeping soundly with his favorite yellow duck toy, and the second picture was taken years later. Clearly, his favorite toy has remained the same. So adorable!

This lovely puppy grew up sleeping side by side with his favorite teddy bear for years, and time has revealed that he never got bored of his favorite friend’s company. The only difference is his size.

This lovely kitten was just a tiny creature when someone gave him this green frog to play with, and even now, years ahead, this kitty is still firmly attached to his favorite cuddly toy. Some things are just too sweet for words.
#4 Little Lion
This amazing picture is yet another proof that some relationships last forever. In the first picture, we can see the little puppy and his new toy, and the second picture shows us this tiny puppy, all grown up. The most amazing thing is that he clearly never stopped loving his little lion toy.
