Tell Us Your Stuffed Animal Story

Jul 14, 2014

The Colin McEnroe Show is working on a show all about stuffed animals: the history of being attached, or developing a sentiment towards an object that comforts; the business of building them, and the awesome stories people have about their precious squishy toys.

That's where you come in! We want you to tell us about your favorite stuffed animal. Do you still have it? Do you still sleep with it? Did it disappear (and re-appear)?

Was it destroyed by your mean older brother right in front of your face, while you screamed and screamed, but he did it anyway, and now it's collecting dust in a closet, still in two pieces? Or whatever else!

Here's how to participate:

  1. Call us at (860) 580-9677.
  2. No one will pick up! We promise.
  3. Tell us your story. Technically, you'll get cut off after 3 minutes, but try to be as to-the-point as possible. We radio folks love that.

If you're phone-shy, then please send us a photo of your stuffed animal with a caption. What's its name? What should we know about it? Email Chion Wolf at
