LostMyLovey was featured on the Kathie Lee & Hoda portion of the TODAY show on November 16, 2012, during the Bobbie's Buzz segment. We were so excited to be included, especially because Hurricane Sandy delayed the taping of the show and we were worried if it would happen at all. But it all turned out well in the end.

Thanks Kathie Lee, Hoda, and Bobbie!!

If you’ve got a little one you know how attached kids can become to their favorite lovey. Having and being attached to a blanket or favorite stuffed animal is a developmental step many kids go through, but what happens when that lovey is lost? Chaos!”

Trekaroo contest winners announced
Trekaroo recently featured LostMyLovey in their Monday Madness Giveaway. We're pleased to announce the contest winners!
Congratulations to Pat, Gabrielle, Heather and Sharlene.
They each received a LostMyLovey ID Tag for their child's favorite toy! Gabrielle has already sent us a terrific picture of "Daddy Bunny" wearing his LostMyLovey ID Tag at Disneyland (see picture at left).

Thanks to these Trekaroo members for entering our contest!
We here at LostMyLovey were honored to be included in our first celebrity birthday party on March 7 for Denise Richards' daughter Sam, who turned 6. We provided LostMyLovey ID Tags to Denise's children as well as the party guests, included in the gift bag shown here with Denise.
Okay, so you have to look reeeeeeally close at the picture to see our tag under that backpack, and all you can see is the outer packaging, not the tag itself... but that's okay! We were thrilled to be a part of it and Denise loved the tags.
She later tweeted, “
My girls just got the coolest tag for their fav things Lost my Lovey it's fantastic!!”
We're so glad we could help keep her daughters' favorite loveys safe!

Sure teddy bears are easy to come by, but your child's beloved (and possibly broken down) best pal is priceless. The LostMyLovey ID Tag offers safe identification for your child's favorite blankie, stuffed friend or other special 'lovey.' It's shaped like a small luggage tag and has a printed card inside with their website and your unique ID number. Appropriately, the tag is soft and cozy - as not to interfere with the toy's cuddling abilities. ”

Trekaroo featured us in their Monday Madness Giveaway this month. Readers were invited to share stories about their lost loveys to enter to win a LostMyLovey ID Tag.
Readers wrote in with some touching stories, including this one: "My daughter stuffed her lovey behind a product on a shelf while shopping with hubby. He didn’t realize it was missing until they got home. We called the store, then leaped back in the car and drove 30 minutes to retrieve the lovey, then 30 minutes back home. Since then, we check on the location of the lovey constantly." GO DAD!!
And another story - hasn't this happened to you? We feel this mom's pain! "We were traveling to Florida when we lost my daughter’s favorite blanket. My husband was trying to get the carseat, his laptop bag, and her blanket down the aisle of the plane. He ended up having to leave items at the front of the plane and travel back and forth to get the items to our seat. Well, he left her blanket up there and the flight attendants decided it must have been left by a previous passenger and they took it off the plane! Nevermind it wasn’t there when they checked between flights. Common sense says that it was someone on this plane. We called the airport as soon as we landed in Florida, many times during our trip, checked with the small regional airport when we returned home, filled our missing paperwork at both airports, called the airline, but it had disappeared the moment it was taken off our plane. Can you tell I’m still miffed and this was several years ago!"
Why is it when you lose something on an airplane, it seems to go into a BLACK HOLE? Our friend Elodie of the Netherlands lost her teddy on United
, and they STILL haven't found it!
Thanks to Trekaroo for including us in the giveaway!

Are you like me? Have you laid awake at night imagining the scene it would be if you were to lose your child's most precious lovey. Or are you a parent who has had the unfortunate experience of being in total panic driving hours to retrieve a lovey, or searching in vain on the internet for a replacement lovey? Then you understand the anxiety that be sets us parents when a child attaches to that special object. That’s why I was so tickled when I found out about Lost My Lovey ID Tags...”

We all know what a powerful tool the Internet is for connecting us with ideas, people, and things, so why not lost toys as well? At Lost My Lovey.com, you can report a found toy, or look up a lost toy. Using the classified to post or search is free, but you can also purchase a LostMyLovely ID tag for $10. It attaches to your toy and if you lose it, the finder can contact you easily using the website and your unique code. Going through the website means you don't have to share your personal information. The website will even arrange for the mailing of the item through their office. It kind of feels like the "On Star" of the toy world.
It's a cute idea, and the website also has favorite stories of lost loveys and well as ideas for where to get a replacement if you can't find your lost toy. ”

Dearly beloved, we are gathered today to mourn the loss of Billy’s stuffed animal.
Mr. Jollybear went missing somewhere between the mall and grandma’s house. He was mangled, matted, and had only one ear, but his disappearance is tragic.
If only Billy’s parents had known of LostMyLovey, the new online service connecting kids with plushes (and toys and backpacks) gone astray. For no charge, you can post a description and a photo of an AWOL item, which then gets sorted by type and state. Anyone who stumbles upon an out-of-pocket plush may do the same... ”
