I’m looking for a small blue flying Dingbat won at Disney made by BJ Toys. My son Orin, who was 3 at the time, won this stuffed toy all by himself at a “Muffin Tin Pitch” carnival game in Orlando, Florida. The game is: A large clear box that has multiple color holes on the inside of the box. The objective is to land on the blue hole, which there are very few of. Orin had 3 tries, and he hit it on the first try and won a blue plush bat / dingbat.
He was so proud he hung onto it all day and wouldn’t let anyone else hardly see it. Toward the end of the day he fell asleep in my husband’s arms while being carried across a parking lot. Although I had been watching to try and keep up with the toy all day it was in the parking lot that it was dropped / lost. When I realized it was gone I ran back and searched around the lot for it, but it was dark and crowed, as the park was closing. Someone must have picked it up. As you can imagine my son was very heartbroken. I called the lost and found but there were no blue plush bat turn ins. We had to get on a plane and leave that morning.
I have done some research and figured out where this thing comes from, so I could buy a replacement, as it would mean an awful lot to my son. The trouble is, without help, I am not sure I can get to it as it stands now. It comes from the BJ toy company (which is a wholesale company), under their family section/ flying animals, and it’s called a Ding Bat. I am not sure of the size. I think it was the no. 2466-4 9 inch one, but it may have been no. 2467-5, the 13 inch size. It was the smallest BLUE one. Size is less important, as long as it’s blue and one of the smaller sizes. The park that this toy was won at was Disney Animal Kingdom, although it may be located as a prize in other games and locations.
I would really appreciate some help getting one of these!!!! I have been searching eBay for it with no luck.
