"Adopt a Teddy"?
My dd's school is thinking of running an "adopt a teddy" stall. Kids would send in their old toys for others to buy. The idea makes me very uncomfortable - it would be fine if they weren't referring to it as adoption, but to me it's showing adoption as happening where 1) the original owners don't want their toy any more, 2) others looking and choosing the cutest and 3) people then paying for the one they want in order to own it. I have voiced my concerns - am I being too sensitive? I don't mind people "adopting" animals at the zoo but this just seems different somehow - what do people think?
