Yes, there's a story with PAPABEAR and the toy train.
I found PAPA BEAR about 13 years ago in our local CVS drug store - could not resist.
Since then, he has traveled with Ma and me every summer in our now old bus (RV) to see our families around the country. Our son honored him some time ago by getting a personalized license plate for the bus in his name - I now call him the owner! When parked in RV camps, he often gets noticed sitting in the front seat.
The battery operated toy train was purchased from our Walgreen's in 2001 - survived all of our grandkid visits when they were barely walking - AND NOW IT'S MINE!
