I received a comment on this post during the time when Blogger was not working correctly, so it never did show up. So, since she did give me a way to contact her, I am opening this back up as a new Search. But the original story is so much fun I decided to let it tag along. 😉

I am looking for that same Lovey….with Minky Aqua Dot fabric and Disco Dot Satin fabric on the reverse; same as in the photo. My son is TOTALLY attached to his, and I am in desperate need of a backup! I cannot find one anywhere – eBay, and other websites…they all come up empty. 🙁

Searching for a toy – Reposted on 07/28/2008
I did find one on eBay, but the price was too high for them. So, I will leave this in Searching. Hopefully, somebody will see this who has one stuck back somewhere or find one at a yard sale.
And it worked out just that way!!
Here’s Natalie’s reply to my email trying to figure out what she still needed for her twins, after I connected her with Corrie, who wrote to tell me she had one her child was not attached to!
I knew it would be a little confusing, sorry. I had two styles – one for each girl. Charlotte originally lost her blanky (aqua minky dots), and you helped me locate two blankies on eBay. One was similar and the other was exactly the same as the one she lost selling for $39. This particular ebay store ALSO happened to be carrying the exact same blanky style that Amelia has (she never lost hers) also selling for $39. After contemplating spending $80 for two blankys, I bought the similar looking blanky for Charlotte @ another ebay store, for two reasons. #1 it was cheaper, #2 I saw a few listed on eBay so I knew if she took to it–I could easily buy a back-up.
Well, Charlotte hesitated at first– now after about 3 weeks she loves her “new” but similar blankie (it has a little doggy head attached). Last night I bought back-up for Charlotte of the new/similar blankie with doggy head attached AND I contacted the woman from the email you forwarded to me yesterday.
After learning the hard way I started searching for a back-up blankie for Amelia. The only one I found was at the eBay store you emailed me originally that listed Charlotte’s aqua minky dot style for $39. I contacted the woman and I was able to buy a back-up which is “the exact same style” as Amelia’s blankie for $33 with s/h.
So the final score:
Amelia —one original lovey blanky and an exact back-up for emergency case
Charlotte —one new/similar blanky and one back-up on its way + the original blanky aqua minky dots I desperately searched for from the beginning, hopefully on its way from a KIND Mommy who read your post – who has one her daughter is not using.
Mommy —penniless but happy she’ll have some peace of mind with back-up blankies for sanity sake!
Wish me Luck!
GREAT STORY!!! When they are older you will have to share this story with your girls, for sure, Natalie!!
I’m desperately searching for my daughter’s lost blankie. It was lost on 4-9-08 in Poughkeepsie Area in Dutchess, NY. I went back to the two stops we made, Target and HSBC bank, with no luck.
The blanket was made by a company called Blankets and Beyond in Montreal, CA. I purchased it from my local Walmart in Sept. of 2007. It is a 14″x16″ blankie with Minky Aqua Dot fabric and Disco Dot Satin fabric on the reverse. The minky side has a 2″ satin border. I’ve searched eBay and Wal-mart with no luck. Unfortunately, I can’t find the company who made it either. Please help us locate another, my daughter has had it since she was 6 months old and uses it for sleep, comfort and naps.
Her twin sister is now suffering too, because I now have to hide hers so they won’t fight over it.
Thanks and God Bless,
