Posting for traffic in a cuddly toy emergency!

So my 4 year old managed to stow away my cuddly toy (mine goddammit!!) and it got lost in Tenerife. (Cross at my husband but that's another story! It shouldn't have left the house!) my ds is devestated and keeps asking where it is. We've contacted the hotel, no sign, searched eBay for a lookalike. Not coming up with anything.

It was a mothercare rabbit bought for me 29 years ago, so obviously it's not being made anymore. I know I won't find one exactly the same but hoping one of you might have seen something similar that could pass!

Fingers crossed...

I think it would need to be pink / grey for me to be able to come up with a suitable explanation. Thank you for looking though X

Could it have got a rabbit version of a team in holiday in tenerife that's why it's changed colour? ;)

The Brer Rabbit isn't too far out. I'll keep looking but that's one to fall back on

OP - It won't matter if you get an exact replica of the rabbit your child will still be able to tell the difference. Perhaps you could make up a story that your bunny really liked sunny Tenerife and decided to do more travelling?
