The Amber Gang


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.

NAME: Dolly

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.

NAME: Emoji

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.

NAME: Blanket

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.
