We are trying to replace our son’s beloved tiger that he lost last summer. It’s the right size and looks like a TY beanie baby, but all my searching through the catalogs hasn’t turned anything up that’s a match.
He is striped black and burnt orange with a white face and belly, and his black thread mouth looks like it’s in a smile.
We were travelling in Montreal last summer with our two kids and my husband’s parents, and somehow my son’s beloved “Hobbes” failed to come home with us. We emailed the hotel and searched the car and luggage high and low, but no Hobbes. My son Tristan is almost 9, and has brought Hobbes with him everywhere imaginable since he got him about 4 years ago.
I thought maybe he had gotten over him since I had not been able to find a replacement, but in his letter to Santa he asked for “a new Hobbes (urgent), please!” So I thought maybe your community might be able to identify this particular tiger, and we could find a replacement.
Thanks for helping.
