Frankie's Toys

Question submitted by Shayan, Age 9

What are Frankie's favorite toys?
My all time favorite toy is my grizzly bear, as you can see in the picture above. He has been with me a very long time and protects me. I also have a little sheep that has a ball inside his tummy. And I really love my Jack toy. Each side has a squeaker... and I LOOOOOOVE squeakers!! As you can see, the Jack is very well worn out. My mom says she is going to buy me lots more Jacks with the $50 gift certificate I won for cutest picture (the one of me in a hot dog costume). YIPPEE!!!

From the kids in Canada...Frankie, did you know that Real Grizzly Bears are found in Canada! We have a Grizzly Bear Habitat on a ski mountain 1/2 from where our school is!

EEKS! A real grizzy bear would scare the fur right off of me! I tend to prefer pretend ones. So please keep the real ones in Canada. :)
