The very 1st Oonie was created in 1967 by my mom Grace. I didn’t even exist yet. But as soon as I did Oonie was my best little friend. Made of red-heeled socks and stuffed with old nylons he was just the right size and was ready for what ever came his way. The original Oonie watches over the creation of all subsequent Oonies.
His name Oonie came from his uno (1) eyebrow and uno (1) ear. Just about every baby in my family and friends has gotten an Oonie at one time or another. Most Oonies in our family were made while the baby was still in utero.
The new millennium (lol) Oonie is made for any one needing just a little some one to hug. Machine sewn out of the same kind of red-heeled socks as the original these ‘modern’ Oonie’s have hand embroidered eyes and heart and are stuffed with hypoallergenic stuffing.
…mind you my Oonie’s are all unisexed and I don’t delve into gender realism…
