A Christmas gift for a Special little boy

© By Shyron E. Shenko

Where do I find a special Christmas gift of joy for a special little boy?

I was looking for a special gift for my great grandson.

Who is the apple of the eye of everyone

As for a gift I did not know that I would have such fun in my search for one.


For weeks, we were searching everywhere,

At Toys R Us, I am sure he has every toy in there

I must find something to bring him special joy

A special gift for this special little baby boy


We searched all the papers for every special sale

Where we may find a special gift, you can never tell

Then in the flyer for all Christmas sales ads

This is where we saw the perfect sale


I wanted to go right away, before they sell them all

My husband said don’t worry, if they do

We will just keep searching

Until We find another store that sells them too


When we got to the store and I rushed inside

And my excitement I could not hide

As soon as I walked in, where is Talking Tom, I cried

He is down that aisle the cashier said, on the other side


I rushed down the aisle, but Talking Tom was nowhere in sight

When, I hear my husband say “we were looking for Talking Tom”

“And now I must look for my wife”

I could not find Talking Tom to save my life, as I started to walk away


The manager steps out of a little room

And we hear him say “How can I help you, what can I do for you?”

We are looking for Talking Tom, but we can’t find him

So…now what do we do?


We moved them over here; I will show them to you

How do they talk? I asked what they do.

And then I saw them there were quite a few

But how do they talk to you?


Press one of their feet and it will talk to you

I pressed a foot and waited, and nothing happened

I was so disappointed, now what do I do?

This one will not talk to me, or you


So I pressed a few more feet, and then suddenly the first one said

"This one will not talk to me, or you"

And the others said on cue, “This one will not talk to me or you”


I began to laugh out loud, and soon they all were laughing too

And Hubby said they are sounding just like you

The more they laughed the more I laughed too

And we drew a crowd who was laughing too


I chose one and put him in my cart

What my husband said then tore at my heart

I did not see its mouth move

I did not see its mouth move, the Toms all said.


No, no, no, the manager said, shaking and holding his head

They’ve been talking all night long, till it is filling me with dread

No, no, no the Toms all said

They’ve been talking all night long, till it is filing me with dread

As he turned them off the manager said, let’s put these Talking Toms to bed


I bought a Talking Tom, and I took him home

It is hard this waiting for Christmas

To see what Caden will do

When Talking Tom starts talking too


Before I wrap him up, here is what I planned to do

Have Talking Tom say “Caden I love you”

So, I pressed his foot and Tom said no, no, no

As I said “Caden I love you,” and turned Tom off, now that will have to do.


I could not wait for Christmas day

When Great Grandson would open up the Talking Tom

To hear what he would say, and see what he would do

I hope it does not scare him and make his back away


When, the box was opened and Tom began to repeat every thing that was said, I realized why the Talking Tom was on sale.

      Peggy, thank you for your visit to this special story for my great-grandson, yes he has other interests now that he is growing up faster than a speeding train. His list consists of many things, I don't know what to do.

      Blessings my dear friend.

      I noticed comments from 5 years ago. This Talking Tom must have great lasting power if they are still selling them today. Your grandson probably has other things on his Christmas shopping list by now. Has he given you any hints? Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas!

I hope it helps you to get readers when I do these postings. Like hugs and love, prayers and money, one can never have too much/many -- readers in this case. :)

      This is a wonderful Christmas story so I hope people will read it in only to get into the Christmas Spirit. Posting this to AH & FB.

      Hope all is well with you dear friend. Blessing always . . .

      The little boy in this story must be growing like a weed! Sharing this on FB and AH because, 'Tis' the Season!'

      Have noticed that Walmart looks like Tazmanian Devils have spent the day there on the weekends.

      Hope all is well or at least the best it can be with you and John. Blessings dear friend. Take care . . .

      A great Christmas story!

      Hope you're ready for Christmas as it's only 9 more days and we're to have weather too frigid to go out in for the next few days, so best be ready before tomorrow afternoon if you can.

      Take care and stay warm. Hugs.

      He had more fun playing with the wrap paper, and the dogs, but when the excitement is over, hopefully he will enjoy, Talking Tom.

      Came back to find out how your g.grandson likes his Talking Tom.

      For some reason, neither my comments or your responses end up in the feed. Seems strange to me. Sharing this. Hope you and John had a great Christmas!

      Yes, it does sound like you have already had a lot of fun choosing this gift! I wonder how many more people in the store that day decided to buy one too, because of the experience they shared with you . . .

      A fun Christmas article. Voted up, BAI, pinned to 'Awesome Hubpages,' and will share!
