Can You Help to Find Some John Lewis Musical Dog & Puppy’s for Verity?

This is our new friend Verity. She lives in Worksop with her Mum, Dad, and younger brother.  Verity loves CBeebies, playing the keyboard, and swimming.

Verity is Autistic and has learning disabilities, and she goes to a special school.

We need to find some Musical Dog and Puppy’s which were sold by John Lewis around 15 years ago.  This is Verity’s favourite thing, and the only one she has is wearing out fast!

Tell us a little about Doggy ...

It was manufactured by John Lewis, the item is called John Lewis Musical Dog and Puppy. I can’t see any reference numbers as they have faded out due to years of use. It was purchased in late-2004 to mid-2005, and I think in either Nottingham or Leeds. I don’t know when it was last made.

Can you tell us any specific details about Doggy - who made it, where it came from, etc

It was supplied by John Lewis in the early 2000s, I do not know if any other companies made or sold the same toy and where specifically it came from. We have tried to get in contact with John Lewis but they didn’t get back to us.

Why is Doggy so important?

This toy is very Important to Verity as it has been in her life from when she was a baby. I know before when the toy has gone missing that it can be nightmare as Verity can get worried and upset about it going missing. This has happened over the years quite a few times but normally it is found in a day, it goes everywhere with her even to school.

How would you describe the current situation?

Verity has one but she really needs spares due to the toy dog getting so old and looking like it has seen better days.

I would really love to help the family find this toy and end this 4-year search. If you can help we will all be so grateful.


The way this works is not magic, it’s all about SHARING.  If you want to help Alys find some White Tigers we need you to like and share this search with all your family and friends, but importantly, we need you to tell them to do the same.

Chances are none of our amazing Followers has one of these in a cupboard, but if you all share it, and those people share it too, and so on, someone down the line may well have one, and if they see the picture pop up in their feed they may well be able to help Alys.

Liking and commenting is good too!
