Toffee

Okay, so my sister-in-law's niece has had a hard year. She's just four, and she's the sweetest thing you'll ever see.

A couple years back she came over, and I gave her a beanie baby of mine that I didn't want, and she took that and loved it like no other. She was like addicted to her 'Go' (she heard her mom yelling at their dog Sammy to "go" all the time, so she thought that the dog's name was 'go').

She took it to day care, and someone stole it, and since then she's been asking where Go went. She'd been getting better about it, until a couple months ago when her father ended up passing away, (we still don't know why yet), and she's at the point where she's starting to understand what death means, and all she's been asking for is her daddy, and her Go.

So hopefully you understand why I need this dog--it would mean the world to her, we would pay anything for it, and I've run out of places to look...

So if anyone can help me out, I would be greatly appreciative. smile.gif

Ninja Edit: Not sure if this is in the right spot, didn't seem big enough for Personal Concerns, but move it if I screwed up.

I'll keep an eye out.

Have you tried phoning up any of the special beanie/plush shops?

I've been trying to find one I can get to...and still no luck. I don't have a car, and they work all the time, so it's just hard to find one that they don't have to take a day trip to get to...

But I'm going to keep looking.

First off, is it a real TY Beanie Baby? If it is, give me five secs and I can find one for ya. If it's not...well, this complicates matters a bit.

Tell us anything you know that could be used in a search. I'll see what I can turn up with what you've said so far.

Does he happen to have a splotch on his back like this one?

If this site is any good, Ta Da!

Here's another place with more info.

For refrence, your Toffee is an old Ty Plush toy, not a beanie. He's been retired for somewhere along the lines of....oh, 10 years. He was made circa the mid 90's.

Simple. He's a 10 year old retired toy from an entire line of TY toys that were retired several years ago (and which weren't anywhere near as marketed or popular as the beanies). So he hasn't been made in an entire decade and he wasn't exactly a highly-produced toy to begin with.

If I were you I'd try finding a TY collector's message board and poking around to see if someone there would be willing to sell him to you. That and check Ebay every day. Maybe www.craigslist.org if one of their portals is for an area near you.

Another site. I couldn't get to Toffee's info page, but at least there's an email where you can reach the store proprieter.

On the upside, you now have enough info to find the thing, if he's to ever be found. He's a TY Classic Plush dog named Toffee and his number is #2032. That should give you a lot more response when calling collectables shops and such.

On the downside, I'm completely petered out. Been through around 200 pages worth of google searches, lycos searches, and yahoo searches with nothing so far. Of course, I also don't have much experience in collecting things, so I'm not much of a help to begin with. sad.gif

M'kay, who's up to bat next? :: Passes torch::

Oh I wish i had that one to give to you! I used to collect TY toys when I was a lot younger, but I never got any dogs (always been a cat person).
Gah!

I hope you do find him! I'll keep an eye out for him in charity shops!
Has anyone tried ebay yet?

Different stuffed dogs by TY

I tried Amazon, but with no luck. So, if she hasn't seen the stuffed dog for a couple of months and you can't find the actual Toffee, you could try a look-a-like. I know it's probably not your first choice, but it could work (if you don't find Toffee).

Edit: Is this him?: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...2&category=1636
