Just as Millie’s always loved her blanket (or nuffle) Amber has always had Dolly. These toys share the girls’ bed, join them when reading, watching TV, on any travels away – they’re constant companions. 🙂
But three new “associates” have suddenly joined the Amber Gang, making it, to be honest, a bit unwieldy. All four of them are now carried around together – always together! – and I thought it was about time we got a handle on them all.
APPEARANCE: Belle from Disney’s Beauty And The Beast.
OTHER ALIASES: Dolly-Bolly, Beef/The Beef (due to her distinctive scent when she needs a session in the washing machine).
NOTES: The original gang member, Dolly has been Amber’s right-hand
man doll for most of her life. A faithful companion and source of comfort through all of life’s hardships (not there are too many of those when you’re eight years old…)
NAME: Delish Donut
APPEARANCE: Large pink fluffy doughnut with human features.
OTHER GROUP AFFILIATIONS: Shopkins.
OTHER ALIASES: None.
NOTES: As a part of Amber’s continuing Shopkins-mania, Delish’s long-term position within The Gang remains unclear.
APPEARANCE: Yellow, smiling, heart-eyed emoji cushion.
OTHER GROUP AFFILIATIONS: Emojis.
OTHER ALIASES: Smiley Love Heart
NOTES: One of two impulse addition to the Carter household, Millie and Amber both formed an instant bond with these emoji cushions, bought for £5 each from a Bexleyheath tat-shop.
APPEARANCE: Piece of teal-coloured knitting; practice for larger and more polished projects.
OTHER GROUP AFFILIATIONS: None.
OTHER ALIASES: Blanky.
NOTES: Most inscrutable of all the gang members because…well, because it’s just a bit of unfinished and slightly tatty knitting. However, Blanket goes everywhere with the other gang members.
