Help Erin find a new blue Kitty

Kitty is so well loved that it’s actually wearing out, and Mum is now scared to wash it in case it falls apart. Kitty came from one of those grab machines where you have to pick up a toy with a crane. This machine is in New Brighton in Wirral and is a win every time machine costing £1 a go. Kitty was won 4 to 5 years ago now....
