So, knowing how strongly Patch feels about autos, Lindsay picked up the decal and gave it to him when she returned home. Of course, as far as the motor-mad little boy was concerned, the badge was a special find. And he explained to CBS News in February 2019 why he thought that his mom had given it to him. He said, “Because I love cars!”
Patch loved his new treasure so much, in fact, that it got him thinking. You see, the little boy decided that it might be pretty cool to gather badges from all sorts of different cars. And from that moment, Patch embarked on an epic hunt for more decals and made it his mission to create a giant collection of them.
Patch’s mom and dad also liked the idea of him trying to acquire different car badges. After all, as well as being a lot of fun, they figured that the activity would also be educational for their little boy. Lindsay told CBS News, “My husband and I thought, ‘This is a great way to encourage [Patch] to read.’”
