Weekly Feature #13, Stories From a Child’s Past: The Velveteen Rabbit

Welcome to this Weeks Weekly Feature number #13, Stories from a child’s past, Stories unearthed from my childhood. These stories I am sharing as a young child I had and continue to have a love for writing.

The writings so far seemed to be when I was in between the ages of ten to thirteen. Many of the examples I provided do have typos, run on sentences and grammatical errors so don’t be surprised if see those.

As a young writer I just loved to write, putting aside punctuation, good sentence structure and my English teach would probably be lecturing me right now, you may want to lecture me, but know this is where my love began.

Joining for the first time, please take a look at my previous Weekly Features:

Original Story

The Velveteen Rabbit Transcribed

One day long ago in 1807 lived a rabbit named the Velveteen Rabbit, and one day a boy got a rabbit for Christopher and he loved it so much that he slept  with it every day. He took it every it places with him and in 1810 he had it still, but he had in a covered for a long time and one day he still had it and one his mother told him to sleep with stuff little horse and one day he got sick and one day they had to throw away the rabbit in the trash and a lady came by and she had a long big wings and she was the lady who makes animals real.

Once day the boy said to his mother this rabbit is real! And the lady came and the rabbits eyes was all gray and when the lady came she made the rabbit real and when the boy came out to play he said to himself that rabbit looks like my rabbit and thirty years later the boy died.

The end!

Synopsis

This story is pretty straight forward for those who have read the children’s book “The Velveteen Rabbit”, about a boy named Christopher to receives a Rabbit, the Velveteen rabbit. The boy loves his rabbit, taking the rabbit every where to bed, everywhere he went the rabbit went. One day the boy gets very sick and so his Mother put the rabbit away with the other toys. While the Boy is sick the mother gives Christoper a toy horse to hold.

This saddens Velveteen and doesn’t realize he is not real one day being in the garden seeing real rabbits. Velveteen attempts to play with the real rabbits but can not move, this saddens the rabbit.

The Rabbit urges to be a real rabbit and sheds a tear, suddenly bring a fairly who suddenly turns him into a real rabbit. One day Christoper was playing outside and noticed Velveteen as a real rabbit but not realizing it was his rabbit. Thirty years later the boy dies, the end.

What does it Mean

As a child I loved this story and I had my very own velveteen rabbit that brought me comfort for many years. As a young child I had a mother and my abusive grandfather so this toy was my friend, I would rub my mouth against his ears for comfort. Originally he was in a huge stocking but I removed it.

I have passed my velveteen to my daughter who is six years old, I believe I was around 10 when I go this at Target.

I guess I was always looking for comfort, I am a sensitive young boy, not a lot of friends, although I had my sister and mom, I want to live in a different world then I was living. I have the fondest memories of holding him tight at night and although I didn’t bring him everywhere he was kept safety on my bed waiting for me when I got home.

Like any child I had toys, there are really only a few who I can remember fondly Velveteen Rabbit and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and going back further Teddie Ruxpin.

This story will continue to be one of childhood stories because of what can happen when you believe. The Velveteen Rabbit believed he was real and soon became real. He loved the boy Christopher and I can only imagine if my own Velveteen Rabbit loved me for all the years. I have had this Velveteen for close to 30 years.

I hope you enjoyed today’s weekly feature and please stick with me, I have more to come but eventually these childhood stories will come to an end.
