My mother used to recite a poem about a little girl who received a new doll for Christmas but before she went to bed threw the new doll on the floor and went to sleep with the old doll. The final lines are, as far as I can recall:

but ere she sought dream valley;
she flung Aminta on the floor
and went to sleep with Sally.

Does anyone know the poem? It would be very old.

Friendship
by Unknown
From http://christmasanthology.blogspot.com/2009/12/friendship.html

Santa Claus came here last night,
Came softly without knocking;
He brought a Doll for little May,
And pinned it to her Stocking.

Little May bounced out of Bed;
Clasped gaily her new Dolly;
And as she kissed and called it Sweet,
Forgot her old Dolls wholly.

Sally Rag, her old plain friend,
No more gifts or graces;
All day she praised Aminta's charms,
And hugged Aminta's laces.

Little May now lies in Bed;
But e'er she sought Dream Valley,
She flung Aminta on the Floor
And went to sleep with Sally!
