The pink penguin has been found, but we
still have someone who is looking for the BLUE version of this Carter’s Penguin. Nicole writes:
I’m looking for a Carter’s blue musical penguin for my 17 month old son Liam as a back-up for the now weathered one that he clings to now.
He takes that penguin everywhere with him and chews on it. I’ve tried replacement toys, and I even tried making a similar one, but the first thing Liam does is grab the penguin’s feet, so he knows the difference right away.
He’s also really big into throwing things right now. So, I’m afraid he’s going to toss it, and I may not notice one time, and it would be lost.
I don’t think he would mind having either color.
Liz has been working overtime trying to find this penguin for her daughter, and she’s been busy searching for other people’s lost lovies, too. Here’s the email she sent today:
Hi Rosemary – I just wanted to let you know that we have found a Poppy replacement. She’s blue though.
My friend Trina was just as vigilant as I was, and somehow she managed to find a website that sells “diaper cakes”. She saw Poppy sitting on one of the cakes. The cake was going for $175.
I wrote to the lady who makes the cakes, explained the situation and offered $75 for Poppy. The owner, Kristen, wrote back and kindly offered to take Poppy off the cake and sell it to me for what she paid for it – $7!!!! The kindness of others is a wonderful thing!!!
We’ve told Krista Poppy must’ve turned blue from swimming in the pool while she was away on vacation. We’re still on the look out for a pink or blue one as a future back up though.
Check out Kristen’s diaper cakes (they’re beautiful) website.
See the Poppy’s reunion on Krista’s website.
Thanks again for all that you do!!
[pinit] I’m hoping you can help me find a plush toy penguin that my 15 month old daughter, Krista, lost. “Poppy” was misplaced while we were out shopping.
I normally link Poppy right to the cart, but didn’t this one time and now my daughter’s absolutely heart-broken. I’ve revisited IKEA and Home Depot time and time again, when the stores open, to search for Poppy. No luck. I’ve stopped all the employees that I run across and asked them to keep an eye out. I’ve also searched eBay (66 pages worth) with no luck.
Luckily, I have the information from the tag, as I wrote it down and stored away just in case something like this should happen.
Manufacturer’s Listed: Prestige Toy Corp., Carters & Child of Mine
Description: Plush pink musical penguin. Between 5-7 inches tall with hot pink, vinyl feet.
Style #: 88301
I contacted all three manufacturer’s and Prestige wrote back that, “This was a musical floater and was shipped early part of 2007 to Walmart and Carter’s, and has since been discontinued and no longer available”.
I wish I knew what music it made, but it’s been through the wash so many times that it hasn’t played anything in quite a while. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated, as she naps and sleeps with “Poppy”, and she greatly misses her.
Thanks – Liza
