My 3 year olds beloved teddy bear (brown with a red tartan bow) was lost at Willows Farm Park in Hertfordshire on Wednesday 20th Feb - half term. She is distraught and still so upset without him. As soon as we realised he had gone we went straight back to where we left him but he'd already gone and hasn't been handed in by anybody so can only assume that he's been taken by another child.
If by any chance anybody visited on that day and has since noticed their child with an unfamiliar soft toy (or saw the teddy on the day), please let me know!! I would be eternally grateful and will pay for your family to have another day out at Willows Farm as a thank you.
Sorry, I should have said before anybody else suggests it that we have got a replacement for him, we bought it shortly after we realised how attached to him she was so she's got another one that is the same. BUT......he doesn't look remotely similar as her original bear was so, so loved and had been with her since birth so he was very threadbare!! We've already given her the new bear but she's not remotely convinced and didn't even recognise him so we really need to try everything we can to get the original back.
Thanks. He's still lost though and she still cries for him, it's just awful! We didn't even normally let her take him out just in case we lost him, it was only because it was her little brothers 1st bday that we let her as a special treat and then we lost him - ARRGH!!
I don't understand where on earth he went, it must have been either another child that picked him up and took him home (but then I can't understand why the mother didn't return him straight away as it's very obviously he was much loved!) or a bigger child might have chucked him in a bin as a joke.
Sadly, I don't think we'll ever get him back so make sure your DD hangs on to her beloved bear!
