Robert was a huge hit in this house. I can't post any pics as they would be too identifiable, but the two that we bought haven't been left down since 7.30am!

Anyone else?

I should add that they are now called Elsia and Starlight. grin

Who or what is Robert?

Robert the unicorn from the bargain threads.

Ours was a hit too! Want to post pics but currently in bed lol
Ours is still a Robert and is beloved by 4 year old DD and eyed with suspicion by DCat

Our Robert was kindly being hid by a neighbour - who selfishly visited his girlfriend last night!

Robert arrived just in time for dinner!

Robert a massive success here as well - DD has not physically been parted from him since opening! Definite renaming going on in this house as well grin Final decision yet to be made on name though!

Robert is adored by dd here! He's dragged around to whatever room dd is in. Huge thanks to reastie and all on the bargain threads, I picked up so many fab ideas. flowers

Is there a link please - would be ideal for DD's January birthday. Thank you

Robert loves here too!! He's been dragged up and down the stairs so he's not on his own. We love him!

The original Robert made a Christmas Day appearance with dd2 here. A year on and she's still besotted with him.

Duchessofealing Mon 26-Dec-16 12:22:09

Our Robert is still a Robert and belongs to mummy to avoid fighting over him between DDs(3 and 5) - DD2 spent most of Christmas Day on his back shouting gallop a neigh grin

I googled Robert the unicorn and came up with Adult Swim. Any further links please? I'm hoping it isn't that!!

kelper Mon 26-Dec-16 12:28:29

Shit, if you google robert the unicorn toy you get all sorts of creepy shit about a haunted doll 😳

user1471462578 Mon 26-Dec-16 12:32:25

Ours came from toysrus but I think wilkos do the same one. Hth.

That is the original Robert, I think. But as I had to buy two I got the Argos Robert x2.

Argos Robert

This is the one I bought, from ToysRUs... www.toysrus.co.uk/mobile/toys/animal-alley-pink-45-unicorn-soft-toy/TRUP1915820001

RueDeDay Tue 27-Dec-16 06:48:16

Ours has been renamed to 'Pinky'... We are all about the originality in this house!!

I have 2x Argos Robert for youngest 2 dcs aged 4 and 6. They descended down the stairs on Christmas morning seeing only Robert in the distance stealing. Dd4 was shouting, "unicorny, unicorny"! They are very happy girls!

I wondered if there would be a Robert thread! I didn't get one as they were out of stock at local argos when dh looked. I just hope he arrives for Valentine's!

GoodQueenWenchEatsLess Wed 28-Dec-16 08:22:02

Ours was loved by DD too. She and DS spent most of Xmas day pretending to ride him, lying on top of him and cuddling him. Huge originality from a 4yo so his (actually, her) name is Fluffy grin

LittleReindeerwithcloggson Wed 28-Dec-16 22:27:34

Ours is very loved and now called Harriet!

Myfanwyprice Wed 28-Dec-16 22:39:37

Dd was thrilled with her Argos Robert, even though she decided she didn't want the giant fluffy unicorn (that she asked for constantly from October!) last week grin

Robert has been renamed candy and has not been put down, definitely a big hit fsmile

I need out more. My first thought was Robert the robot blush
