Cheburashka In Our House

India and USSR always had good relations between each other, and now Russia and all the post-USSR countries continue that inherited friendship. However I doubt that this big eared Soviet period cartoon character whose name is Cheburashka, ever visited Indian continent and ever lived in the Indian house, though I'm sure he would love to.
As soon as me and my D made our Indo-Russian marriage possible, nothing seems to be impossible now, even Cheburashka's stay in India. So here he is, who has recently (2 days ago) settled down in our house, and I'm sure enjoys all the attention and love  given to him. Especially from my D, for who he was actually made. 
If you search Cheburashka in the Internet, you'll find loads of info about him. Briefly the story of his life is a story of real friendship. No one knew where he came from and how appeared in the Moscow's toy shop one day. He himself didn't know what was his name, and who he was. Sad...isn't it? But he definitely was so kind, and so cute, that he deserved to be loved and cared for. Once he tumbled down from the crate and got his name from a shopkeeper "Cheburashka" which literally means "the one who tumbled". Later he met a crocodile Gena, who became his true friend and made him happy.
For his first photo session in India Cheburashka chose this Russian fairy tale background. He might be missing his native country I guess.

Cheburashka says that he likes being in India, and looks forward to visiting many places here. Then there will probably be another background, with palm trees and emerald green parrots :) Till then, he will explore  surroundings of our house and perhaps will get another photo shoot, if I am not tired. He is not perfect, as none of us, and yes, we love him nevertheless :)
 Here is what I've been up to recently, and I'm very glad I accomplished this amigurumi project for my D :) Now I can completely indulge in blanket making and show the progress after a while. And oh my, I'm still confused about squares arrangement. I'll come up with some nice decision soon.
Have a wonderful day ahead, dears! Sending loads of love your side form our sunny India!

  5. Oh... that is so cute!! When you said Indo Russian relations I remembered that as kids we had a subscription to a magazine called "Sputnik". It had loads of articles on sports, research in science and medicine and even recipes like blinis and piroshki. It was a nice magazine. I am sure it does not exist now. Have you heard of it?
    Love

  7. He is just adorable!!!!!!! You should always take him with you on trips and take pics of him posing with landmarks and so forth. It's a popular thing in the states to do that with a toy or a garden gnome.

  18. Soooo sweet! I remember reading some Russian children's magazine's growing up. My parents encouraged me to read any and everything and I was happy to oblige. We used to get a magazine called 'Misha' regularly, I believe Misha was a bear? Also had a beautiful story book about a little boy called Vanya who goes to the seaside with his grandmother. Ah, happy days!
