It might be a long shot, but a Vernon resident is seeking a replica of a treasured Winne the Pooh toy and is reaching out to the community for help.
Monique Lee’s family has had the blue-clad Pooh Bear for at least 15 years, but says that after those many years of wear and tear it’s now on its last legs.
“We have used this for calming for many years. We are hoping someone has a working one tucked away in a toy box somewhere and wouldn’t mind selling it,” she said.
Lee said the toy lights up and plays classic lullabies, but these calming functions don’t work as well as they once did.
“Right now you have to shake it pretty good to get it to do anything,” she said.
If you have a better-working version of the toy which you’re willing to part with, get in touch by email.
