Little J Loses His Favourite Bing Bunny

Went we went to Cyprus last Summer little J took a handful of toys. His Winnie the Pooh taggy which he has had since he was born, some cars, his doctors kit and his Bing Bunny. Now if you read my blog you will know that Bing Bunny hadn't been with us very long but he instantly became a favourite and became little J's bedtime buddy along with taggy. When little J was helping to pack his suitcase both Bing and taggy were the first things in the Trunki.

This was the last time little J and Bing napped together after lunch, the next day we lost him.
It's hard when you go away because I instantly think 'what if we lose one of his toys?' he would be devastated. Well it happened to us in Cyprus and it was awful. On the Tuesday before we came home little J had been for his lunch and he would always take taggy and Bing. He knew after lunch he would fall asleep so he had to have his two pals with him. On the walk from the restaurant to the pool area he dozed off holding them both and on the way he must have dropped Bing. 

The day before Bing went missing 

We noticed as we parked up the pram and he was only holding taggy. Being the caring older brother big J dashed out and retraced our steps to find Bing. He was gone. In the brief moments someone must have picked him up. Daddy went to reception and lost and found but no-one had handed him in. We checked every day for the remainder of our holiday but he had been taken.

Little J was so upset when he realised Bing was missing. We felt so sorry for him, it was awful. The first few nights were the hardest he kept shouting 'Bing' in the night. It's was so sad. We actually told little J that Bing was really hot in Cyprus so he had flew home and would be waiting for us when we got back.

When we got home a new Bing was waiting for us. Grandad had picked a new Bing up for us and even though it was past 5am in the morning after a long day and night little J was so excited to see him.

I'm really not sure what happened to Bing but I was shocked that no-one handed him in. If we found anything that didn't belong to us, we wouldn't even think of keeping something that wasn't ours. With it being a teddy you would think that the person would know it belonged to a child. Even if a child picked it up surely the parents would make sure they reported it to lost and found?

Has your little one ever lost their favourite toy? What did you do?

  1. Thankfully my son has never lost one of his cuddly toys, surprising because they have to go everywhere with him! I agree with you though, someone should have had the heart to drop him in to lost and found :(

  2. We lost Blake's favourite blankie when out and about but luckily was able to find it! I have since purchased a spare one.

  3. Gulp! That was so sad. Our little one lost her favourite pink elephant a few years ago. After 2 weeks she was just starting to settle back to sleep when we got a call. One of our friends had dropped her purse in Tesco, bent down to pick it up and seen pink elephant under the shelves! Spooky and shows how often Tesco brush their floors! x

  4. Just before we went on holidau my daughter put her teddy in a photo booth in Tesco, she realised she had left him about 10 minutes later but when we went back he was gone, The person who took him didn't hand him in and she was devastated, Tesco were lovely about it we ended up coming home to a brand new teddy that Tesco had arranged. Even now a year later she still talks about her lost teddy and she loves her new tesco teddy!

  5. It can be very frustrating when a toy is lost. One of the kids I look after was distraught after losing her favourite teddy and would not settle for anything else.

  7. I lost my favourite doll when I was little and my mum said I cried for weeks until it was replaced but i would have thought someone would have turned it in too. Glad you got a replacement but sad you lost the original.

  8. That is so sad that no one handed him in! I would be so mad and so sad if someone did that to me/my kids! xx

  9. Thankfully we have yet to be in this predicament although i am sure it will come! I agree I can't believe someone didn't hand him in, if we find things that belong to others especially when they are childrens toys its the natural thing to do. Bless him, must have been horrid x

  11. Oh no - that's awful. 3 of my 4 children all had a 'sheety' a pram sheet comforter and if we lost those it was sheer devastation. My 16 yo daughter still has the last piece of hers now! Kaz x

  12. That is so sad but I'm glad you got anew one. My daughter's favourite is a soft toy cat called Blaze. She sleeps with her every night. Poor Blaze is never allowed to leave the house though (and I have an Ebay page saved where I can get a new one).

  14. Oh no, so so sad! We had this recently with Evie's bed time bear. I post up posts all over social media, she can't sleep without it. I ended up going for a late night drive to retrace our days steps and found it on a car park wall! I was so happy and it also meant we got a good nights sleep ;-) . It's incredible how gutted you feel though. xx #love2blog

  15. Oh that's such a shame but I'm glad to hear that he managed to get another one for when you got home. It is such a hard thing, to lose something that a child holds dear. My littlest will not sleep without his blanket and I do not know what I would do if we lost it!

  16. We thought my son had lost his favourite toy, it went for quite a few week. Only to be found right at the back of a cupboard that he had put it in!! Sorry to hear he losts his, glad you managed to get a new one though.

  17. Oh it's so sad when this happens. I wrote a post last year about losing my daughter's favourite toy (also a Bunny) and it was devastating. Somebody must've picked it up which really annoys me because we'd only lost it for a few minutes. If I see lost toys I leave them where they are, if only people had the common sense to do the same?!

  19. Well thank for you were able to pick up another bing. Good on grandad. We never lost a toy. Matthew doesn't really take any cuddly toys with him.
