Mr. Bill Bendable Figure
Hi-ho Mr. Bill!!
I met my three year old neighbor in 1997. His name was Richard William S----- III, otherwise known as Bill.
I told him my name was Marjorie, but friends call me Margie. After going home, he told his mother that he had met the new neighbor. She asked what my name was. He thought about it for awhile and finally answered "Ms. Nerjorie". She thought that was a very strange name, and when I met her, she asked me my name, and I said Marjorie. So the whole family thought my name was Marjorie Nerjorie. From that day I became Ms. Nerjorie, and my friend Mr. Bill. He will be 21 in February, but your SNL "Mr. Bill" is going in his Christmas stocking.

Oh Nooooo Not Chemo!
Mine is a sad/happy story involving the legendary Mr. Bill. My sister was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer and is going through chemotherapy treatments. This could be a completely sad tale but my gift to her of Mr. Bill has provided a tiny bit of much needed comic relief. She takes the ever-resilient Mr. Bill to doctor's appointments and treatment sessions where he shares her heavy burden. Mr. Bill has spent so many years bouncing back from horrific predicaments it is my hope that he will serve as an inspiration during the hard days and weeks ahead. He can't cure her physically but he will be able to withstand anything thrown at him and even being thrown himself. Or stomped on, or yanked on, or run over, or... To see and hear her laugh is a most precious gift. Thank you Vermont Country Store for making Mr. Bill, the Chemo Edition, possible.

Back to Childhood
Last year I got Gumby and Pokie for my son. He had them as a kid. He is now 52. He could not believe that I found them and gave them to him with Christmas. This year he is getting Mr. Bill. Sometime we must find the kid in us. Thank You for having them that makes a old women happy. Sharron Amster

HI MR. BILL
I bought this for my husband for Christmas. It will be a good joke. We saw Mr. Bill long time ago on the TV and always joked about "Mr. Bill" I really think he will get a kick out of it

Mr. Bill a big hit...
My daughter likes antique toys and reproductions and also ones from her childhood...so I just had to get this for her. She opened it Christmas Eve and was really excited...she loves it! Got to love a company (Vermont Country Store) that can bring back so many memories and the service is great!
