Jennifer is still looking for this pillow. Olivia’s toy really had no face, just big eyes and the ears were big and floppy like a puppy’s ears. It was more like a pillow with eyes and ears than an animal of any sort.
I checked the Ebay #, but unfortunately that is not the stuffy we are looking for. I feel that maybe IKEA released 2 toys under the same name, or they have given us the wrong name. This UGGLA looks like an owl, but ours looked more like an orange blob with long ears. Thanks any ways. I have included a pic that my daughter painted of her for you. Believe it or not, it’s quite accurate. Thank you again.
[pinit] About 5 years ago I bought an orange stuffed toy for my then 2 year old, Olivia. The toy was more like an orange pillow with fabric eyes and long ears. She named it Oinky. It took me a while to track down some info on Oinky. He was originally distributed by IKEA under the product name UGGLA and was supposed to be an ‘owl head’. (Didn’t look like an owl to me.) The toy was discontinued in 2006. I am still looking for a pic to send you.
No one could have predicted how much Olivia would come to love Oinky. For 5 years he was her best friend, her baby, her playmate and the toy she loved over all others. I have lost count of how many pictures Olivia has drawn of Oinky, and this past fall when Olivia took part in a collaborative mural made of ceramic tiles at her school she painted Oinky, and now he is a permanent part of her school’s history.
Sadly this April, on a family trip to Florida, Oinky was lost at Disney World. We have been in contact with Disney and IKEA. I hope and pray every day Oinky will be returned to us. Olivia has told us Oinky is currently traveling the universe with his mother (whom he found at Disney), and when his adventure is over he will return home to her. I pray this is so.
Thank you for any help you can give us.
