does anyone have this toy lurking in a toy box or loft? <hopeful>

my son was given one when he was born 3 yrs ago, it became his absolute favourite and has gone everywhere with him since. I tried to buy another when he was 1 so we could wash and switch them over but flipping JL had discontinued it by then. i am now at the stage where I'll do anything to get another, his is so close to falling apart and he still won't be parted with it.

if you have one please reply or send me a message. i'd be so grateful.

Can you not create a saved search on your eBay app? Ie. John Lewis Elephant and whenever anything is listed on eBay matching that description you will be notified.

yes i've done that - nothing yet :-(. I also called JL customer services and they checked stock rooms all over the country, no luck.

Is it made by Jellycat?
I found this website discontinuedjellycats.co.uk where you might get some help.
Jellycat do have a page of retired designs, but strangely it's not there.

Is it this one?

If so I'd be happy to take it from DS1's shelf... he only has eyes for a panda

aww batbear that's so kind of you but no, it's not the one.

it isn't made by jellycat, it's a JL home brand toy. thanks though festive

No but maybe worth getting this moved to chat for more traffic?

No, but we bought a very similar one and very lovely it is from the White Company. Maybe try there?

We have a very, very similar one from M&S,oct 2011. You can't have it, but might give you some more leads.
