Scunner vs. the Teddy Bear

Posted by Santa Claus on December 20th, 2011

Do you remember our new Scottish elf, Scunner?

He is a very grumpy elf that does not like Christmas.

Today I saw him shaking his head.  I stopped and I asked him what was wrong?

‘Och, these new toys that children want are rubbish.  iPods!  Remote control toys!  Walking, talking dolls!  Harumph!  They are not as good as the toys my dad used to make.’  He grumbled and stomped away.

As he stomped away, he kicked a remote control Monster Truck.  What he did not know was he also turned it on!

I watched as the truck drove straight into a pile of teddy bears.  These were piled up so high that they began to fall.

The biggest teddy at the top of the pile fell straight onto Scunner.  It was so big it knocked him over!

Then the remote control truck drove straight into his head.

He yelped and said some words I have never heard in the workshop before.

Then to make matters worse the Teddy said ‘I love you.  Do you want a hug?’ and started chasing after him!

Scunner was so angry!  I had to look away before I laughed.  It is wrong to laugh, but when I saw his face, I could not help it.

It made me think though.

Toys have changed quite a lot over the years.  On Christmas morning, you will be playing with toys that your parents could never have imagined.  (Sometimes I think they are a little jealous!)

Anyway, Scunner has a big bandage on his head now and a face like thunder.  I do hope we can cheer him up in time for Christmas.

We do not have very long to do that!

Merry Christmas!

Father Christmas
