We are after a Minnie Mouse Precious Petal Baby Bouncer for our pregnant friend.

We have 6 weeks ish grin

Original Thread here

We cant seem to find it anywhere in the uk or anywhere that will post to the UK

Maybe one of you wonderful people would post it to PurplePillow cause you are so lovely grin

My pleasure, Purple. smile

Minnie is now sitting on my dining room table waiting for her journey across the ocean which will begin tomorrow morning. The saleswoman who helped me was the same one I spoke with yesterday, and she was very excited to hear Minnie is going to a baby in the UK and had put the bouncer aside so no one else could get it until I got there.

I have tracking information but so far all the website says is "in transit."
Thanks to Purple and Trinity and everyone for your kind words, but it was no trouble at all and a lot of fun. I am really looking forward to hearing that Minnie arrived safe and sound.

My 3 year old granddaughter has been telling her friends at nursery that I sent Minnie Mouse across the ocean to "Puh-pull Play-low." Her teacher was a bit hmm.
