Aw, poor Mr. Happy. It sucks when a favorite toy you've had forever gets ruined somehow.
When my Kermit the Frog doll lost a leg when I was seven, I was inconsolable! My mom fixed him, and I still have him!
ETA: Here is Kermit, bruised, scruffed, eyes scratched, but still "alive" at age 32 (I got him when I was in kindergarten)!
