True Grit














Glitter brushed against the table, she dusted for clues. The sparkling jewel, stolen by a noiseless thief. Her teddy bear crew posed in their uniforms, and if the furtive criminal came back, she would be ready.

She discounted her toy owls – it was unnatural for them to steal. They were the eminent judges of her toy world. To listen to the chatter of Mr and Mrs Potato head, gave her all the clues she needed. They told her about a tiny shoe, left at the scene.

It could only be one toy.

She needed true grit to get past this foul deed – another jewel was needed. One the criminal mastermind could never resist. A ruby, so sparkling, it would turn most heads off their shoulders.

Hiding behind her toy box, she heard the pitter, patter of tiny feet. Doctor Barbie snuck behind the Teddy Bear Police and grabbed the prize, but not before Sarah Sherlock (A toy German Shephard) caught the culprit.

Now in toy jail, her jewellery box would be safe again.

One thought on “True Grit

  1. That is so cute! What wonderful imaginative play for that child. I like the idea of the Teddy bear crew police force, and that the Potato Head family are gossips! I guess it’s their big ears, when they wear them.
