I bought my son a Fisher Price My Friend Mikey doll when he was small, and somehow Mikey disappeared, and we were left with nothing but his little light blue jacket. My own Mikey never cared about the doll one way or the other, but I’ve always been sad about losing the doll and wondering whatever happened to him and hoping some other little boy took him home to love.
I’m not looking to replace our lost Mikey doll. I just want to tell young moms that they aren’t crazy to be looking for their lost lovies and blankies.
Our Mikey doll disappeared around 1982, and I still wonder about him and hope he is well. My own Mikey is over thirty years old now and is a daddy himself. He will now be the one digging through dumpsters and backtracking through town to look for a beloved toy.
P.S. No one needs to look for a Mikey doll for me. My Mikey was about fifteen years old when I found a new Mikey doll and replaced the lost one. So you know who was actually attached to that dolly. Me. And I know that I’m not crazy, for Pete’s sake.
There are several for sale on the internet right now, but here’s the link to the one on eBay in the photo, in case this is a lost lovie you’d like to have again.
