This little girl's lost stuffed bunny is going viral

It’s a big week for stuffed animals on the loose.

First, actress Busy Philipps posted a series of emotional and panicked Instagram Stories after realizing she had accidentally left her daughter’s two beloved teddy bears — one of which has since been found — at a hotel in Hawaii.

Now another cuddly childhood companion is MIA.

Meet Rabbit, who, as Metro reports, has caused quite the social media stir since being left behind on a London subway on April 3.


Gemma Broxup, whose 5-year-old daughter “broke down in tears” when she discovered that Rabbit was missing, posted an urgent plea on Twitter — and people all over the world are pitching in.





“He was a gift when she was born,” Broxup told Metro of the toy’s significance. “She has him every night in bed, and he has been in [the] hospital with her when she had scarlet fever.”

While thousands have retweeted the mother’s plea to find the bunny, many have also shared their own stories of stuffed animals loved and lost.





Though London’s transportation officials have been alerted to the case, a recent tweet from Broxup confirmed that Rabbit remains at large.
