How Does It Work?

LostMyLovey is the FREE online lost-and-found for children’s toys, accessories and other lost children’s items. So how does it work?


Our website is an online classified-ad service for lost or found items, or for parents looking for a replacement for an item. The classified ad is free, and you can post as many items as you wish. You just need to register as a member of the site to use our service. Post your lost item in our classified ad listings here.

Lost Something?

You can post a Lost Item Listing on our website free of charge. The listing will stay up for 1 year. For 6 months your item will be featured in the rotating "Missing" box on our home page, which gives you better visibility. If someone thinks they have found your item, they can contact you via our private messaging system to provide their contact information and arrange to return the item.

Both parties must register with the site to use our private messaging system. Membership is required to post items, respond to listings, and contact other members. This helps us cut down on spam and fraudulent responses, and allows owners and finders to contact each other easily and safely. It's painless, we promise. And we won't spam you. Ever.

As parents, we understand safety is your primary concern. Read our Safety Guidelines for more information on tips for using our site.

Found Something?

You can post a Found Item listing. When the Owner sees your listing, they can contact you via our private messaging system to arrange the return.

Need a Backup Lovey or Replacement?

(You saw the dog rip it to shreds!) You can post a Replacement Wanted listing to see if anyone knows where you can get a replacement! Many of our members have great information on Ebay sellers, obscure toy stores, and other avenues for replacing your toy.
