EVERY CHILD’S WORST nightmare is losing their favourite toy.

On the 1st of December, a four-year-old girl in Kilkenny was left devastated after her family accidentally gave her favourite teddy away with three bags of toys they donated to St. Vincent de Paul.

When SVP found out about this, they took to social media in the hopes of bringing the little girl’s teddy bear home.

On Facebook, the charity wrote:

Hi everyone, we really, really need your help!! On December 1st, a little four-year-old girl made an extremely kind gesture by donating 3 bags of toys to SVP Kilkenny Shop near St Canice’s Church. By accident she put her favourite teddy, which she has had since she was born, into one of the bags. She is desperately searching for it.

They realised that the teddy had already been sold, and hoped that whoever bought it could come forward and help bring it home.

If that person would be kind enough to return it, we will reimburse them. Please, please help us. Thank you.

 The plea was made yesterday (6th of December), and already the teddy bear has made its way home.

KCLR 96 FM shared a photo of the teddy bear being returned to SVP Kilkenny.

St. Vincent de Paul updated their followers on the situation on Facebook:

The little girl who donated toys and accidentally included her favourite teddy has got it back! A very kind customer who purchased it returned it and the mum has just collected it. Thank you so so much to everyone who helped spread the word and helped in reuniting the two.

They also thanked the shop staff who ‘really worked hard at putting the word out’. The stuff of Pixar movies.
