for Friday Fictioneers.



Are you dry yet Froggie?

Almost Pusskin, just a damp foot.

I couldn’t believe it when Peggy hung me by my tail, mee-ouch!


When Dyno saw us he laughed!

Old-timers can be so rude.


She should set us free soon.

I hope so, I want to play with our children.

Bunny next door has five kids, lucky devil.

We might be getting another one.

Yes, Peggy’s either put on weight or she’s preggers!


It’s Christmas soon, hopefully, we won’t get any more box-mates.

No, it’s crowded enough in there already.

Here comes Peggy, wake up Flip and Flap, it’s playtime!

    Hadn’t thought about how dark and crowded a toy box can be :). Good one, Keith.

    Dear Keith,

    How cute and fun! The more kids the merrier. 😉

    The more toys the better say I… even my dog brings his toys to me. 🙂

    My teddy bear and I talked all the time. He knew all my secrets and never told a soul.

    Must be a big event coming for them all to have a bath, or perhaps the cat took a whiz on them. 🙂

    Unfortunately, more box-mates might be happening. It is almost Christmas after-all. Very cute dialogue and a lovely story, Keith! Happy holidays!

    I got pet vibes from these toys like the puppy who gets so excited to play. Fun story.

    Cute conversation…and love the new (I think) design of the web-site!

    I love how the toys like getting more kids to play with, a nice turn from kids getting more toys. A lovely and charming story.

    Ah, that’s sweet. I suppose old toys do dread the advent of new toys in the toybox.

      Thanks, Sandra, youngsters can be a bit of a nuisance in a crowded environment!

    Just hanging out, shooting the sh*t…
    Fun stuff, Keith.

    I love your story and you did their voices just right, Keith. So sweet and pure of heart.

    I love the names for the cuddlies. Beautifully told, Keith 🙂
