Busy Philipps Shares an Update on Her Daughter’s MIA Teddy Bear
On the list of parenting nightmares, losing your kid’s most cherished cuddle companion is definitely up there. So when Busy Philipps returned home from a Hawaiian family vacation two weeks ago without her daughter Birdie’s (9) two favorite teddy bears—Radar and Flat Bear—there was hell to pay.
The good news? Radar was quickly recovered and hitched a ride home from his new pilot BFF. The bad news? Flat Bear’s still at large. But the I Feel Pretty star told PureWow she hasn’t given up all hope yet.
NOT EVEN MAKING THIS UP. My friend @norahweinstein and her daughter who were still at the hotel, got RADAR from the laundry facility in order to bring him home tonight on their return flight. The pilot took a picture with Radar on his way home! I'm actually DEAD. EXTRA SPECIAL Thank you to @norahweinstein and Sloane, Austin at the @fshualalai and Darmie at United Laundry in Kona for FINDING BIRDIE'S BEAR. Flat bear is still on the loose but at least we have a happy ending for Radar! ???????????
“Flat Bear is still missing,” Philipps sighed. “Actually, Birdie just texted and said, ‘I’m really worried about Flat Bear still.’ I was like, ‘Sweetheart, I know and I’m so sorry. I think that Flat Bear’s maybe gone.’ I don’t know what else to say. I feel really grateful and lucky that we got Radar back…But I fear it must be RIP for Flat Bear.”
Nonetheless, Philipps plans to call for one last Flat Bear rescue search today in hopes that the stuffed animal will turn up.
