Posting here for traffic because I am clearly not BU fwink

My friend's DD has lost her beloved Floffel. Floffel is her seal cuddly toy from babyhood and will never be found again as Floffel was lost overseas.

Friend's DD has written to Father Christmas asking for Floffel back. Nothing else on the list - just Floffel.

They don't effing make Floffel anymore fshock fsad fconfused

Friend's DD as been through the wringer lately - can't go into details as would be outing but suffice to say she could really really do with a boost.

Please please please wonderful people of Mumsnet - if you happen to have an Aurora Naturally seal like the one in the photo hanging around your house (it's flannel not plush apparently and has the word 'naturally' on its bum) that you'd be willing to sell/give away it would truly honestly make this little girl's Christmas.

TIA flowers

Ebay? Is it this one

Have you contacted the manufacturer? They may have one hanging around in a corner.

This is heart wrenching! Poor little girl. I’m so sad I don’t have one in the house, but am watching in hope that the MN Mafia can pull it out of the bag!

Oh god that letter is so sad.

I'm sure there's a Facebook page for lost toys. I know you're not seeking the lost one but a post on there might help.

What brand is floffle and where was he bought from?

aaahhhBump Wed 13-Dec-17 20:09:44

There's a Facebook group that specialises in this sort of thing for disabled children. I don't know whether they have a policy around doing it for non-disabled children, but you could contact the group owners to ask?

It's not that one sadly - the one in question is flannel not plush.

Brand is Aurora Naturally.

Thanks for all the good vibes!

Will look into contacting manufacturer as well...

BettyBaggins Wed 13-Dec-17 20:12:21

This is one the Daily Mail should pick up on! Someone tweet 'em!

Supermagicsmile Wed 13-Dec-17 20:13:09

Hope you get somewhere.

Bicnod Wed 13-Dec-17 20:13:22
