Michael received his Clifford ride-on toy for Christmas 2006 from my Mom, when Michael had just learned to walk. It has been one of Michael's favorite toys since, and has been on so many imaginary journeys with Michael.
But alas, Clifford could not last forever. He has been slowing but surely losing stamina (one plastic piece at a time), and this week, he split in two. Michael was sad at first, then proceeded to appreciate the new-found versatility of two Clifford parts. We are going to see if Jon can fix him, and if we have a Clifford resurrection, we will let you know!
