My dad served in the military (USN Seabees) during the Vietnam War (and long after). He had occasion to pass through Australia and picked up a few items for me and my sister. I don't remember the exact year so let's say 1971, that'll be close enough.
The items that he brought to me were a boomerang, an Australian military hat (with the brim folded up on the side) and a stuffed kangaroo. The only item that I still have is the kangaroo.
Believe it or not, I never gave the kangaroo a name. Or, if I did, I don't remember it now.
So, what should I call my 'roo?
A question for those of you in Oz...this is obviously real animal fur, is it actual kangaroo fur or something else?
One more thing, yeah, he looks a bit worse for wear, but not bad for 40+ years.
