Olive Maisie Browning-Beales with Foo Foo - the soft toy rabbit she lost in Norwich on 14/04/2012


The parents of distraught two-year-old Olive Maisie are appealing for help in finding Foo Foo, her soft toy rabbit, lost in the centre of Norwich yesterday.

Hannah and Lee Browning-Beales, of Hall Road, said they only realised the “well-loved”, white, bunny made by Jellycat was missing when their daughter asked for it after they got home.

Mr Browning-Beales then headed straight back to the city centre to look for the soft toy, concentrating on the area around the market and The Forum where the family had spent their day out.

But despite appeals on Twitter and Facebook, phone calls to family and friends and another trip to the city today, Foo Foo has still not been found.

“Olive is distraught, she has had that bunny since she was born and can’t get to sleep without it,” said Mrs Browning-Beales.

“She sucks on one ear and strokes the other to get to sleep, but last night she couldn’t sleep at all - my husband had to hold her hand, she just kept crying and crying and asking for her Foo Foo.”

  • sweet little kid, but honestly, is this news? 'child loses a toy'. just buy her a new bunny - they're like £8. use some imagination and say old bunny went to hollywood and got silicone-fur-whitening, or something

  • You can still buy these jellycat rabbits. The parents need to nip out and buy one quickly and make up a story about the old one if she notices. It's like when kids get attached to old bits of blanket which end up smelling awful, they have to be washed or replaced eventually. It's not the end of the world.
