My son loves his stuffed animal chicken. It really is quite adorable. Leo had admired this chicken in the Hallmark store for a while, so when he turned 6 months old, Joe and I decided that we would buy it for him. Unfortunately, on the walk home from our neighborhood Hallmark store, it fell out of the stroller and Leo was chickenless. This broke Joe's heart, so a replacement chicken was purchased the next day and good thing it was. Leo has formed quite a strong attachment to the chicken and smiles with great delight every time he sees him. Leo has really bonded to his favorite toy and will often carry the chicken around with him. I always looked forward to the day that Leo would find a comfort item, I just never imagined that it would be a stuffed chicken.
