Claude the Crab


My object is named Claude, and it is a stuffed crab. It’s brown, orange, and blue tye dye. It is three inches wide and five inches long. Claude feels soft and squishy, and it is a Beanie Baby. My stuffed crab sounds like a bag of rice just hitting against the ground. The place it came from is China. He is made out of cotton and string. Claude smells like a newborn.  It is used as a memory of my dead brother who died when he was only five days old. The object was given to me by my dad after my brother died. This object is important to me because it is a memory of my brother and on his birthday that is something that we recognize and it is like loving him if we love Claude. It is also important to me because it can also be a collectable in a way not a lot of beanie babies were made with tye dye. It describes part of who I am because it is like my brother always there just looking over shoulders keeping us happy.
