“You love me. I’ll love you”

At the International Toy Fair last month, I saw all kinds of pets:
digital, collectible, plush, plastic and some made on a 3-D printer.

We know that children often bond emotionally to animals, even if they aren’t warm and fuzzy. But I wonder how much of that special connection for a pet (regardless of the level of “realness”) is because an animal will love a child just as he is…whether he forgot to make his bed, dropped a fly ball or missed words on a spelling test.

Being accepted just for who you are…that Fred Rogers message is timeless.
