Mason Smith's beloved toy lamb is still missing, but he now has two new ones to cuddle with.
The visually impaired three-year-old boy from London, Ont. lost his "Lambie" when he and his mother were running errands on Jan. 27. The story caught the Internet's attention after Ashlee posted a Kijiji ad pleading for the lamb's safe return. In a show of support, the stuffed animal's manufacturer, New Hampshire's Douglas Cuddle Toys, produced two more of the discontinued toys for Mason, according to the London Free Press.
“He was very happy, it meant a lot," Ashlee told Global News after the toys arrived on Friday. "He needs them all the time, to go everywhere, to do anything.”
“Thank you," Mason chimed in.
Although Mason now has two new lambs, (one is a spare, just in case) the pair still hope the original will turn up, noted Global News.
