That may be hiding in the bottom of your childs soft toy pile. it was grey/blue and nice and soft, around three years old??... Yes we let DD get so ridiculously attached to it that she hasn't slept properly since she lost it. I have combed ebay but no joy.

hi Xena,
is it the one with the scrunchy ears squeezy tail etc...

TheOriginalXENA Sun 26-Aug-07 10:05:35

No its just a plain soft toy. If you laid it down the nose or ears don't stick up

Have you contacted M&S themselves?
I have one (am elephant mad) but I don't think it's the right one, was bought some time last year

TheOriginalXENA Sun 26-Aug-07 10:25:48

We tried to get a second one when we realised how much she loved it. I have found a photo of her cuddling it so will try to make a profile page. Thanks for replying ladies, gives me hope one will be found.

snowwonder Sun 26-Aug-07 11:01:57

yes it is there now.....

m+ sdo lots of those cute teddies saw a dog in there, i know it is not an elephant but they are all the same softness, and feel the same texture,

my girls have the rabbits,


maybe if you say we are going to chose a new cuddle pal, and take her along with you,

i hope you sort it out my dd just loves anything with a label,she did become attached to a lambie once but got lost in ikea... she is fine now with other things with labels

Bump


Hunker was very kindly given a replacement cuddly by Mamatuks, when her DS1 lost his.

Have you been on to M&S, they are normally very good at this sort of thing.

LIZS Sun 26-Aug-07 16:23:27

have you tried toysreunited ?

TheOriginalXENA Sun 26-Aug-07 16:33:25

lizs I'll try and google that.
Thanks for trying to help guys, we have tried so many replacements now.

TheOriginalXENA Sun 26-Aug-07 16:43:17
