A SCHOOL­GIRL has writ­ten to the Ken­tish Ex­press ap­peal­ing for help in find­ing her lost Pinoc­chio pup­pet.

Seven-year-old Holly Sims of Ball Lane, Ken­ning­ton, thinks some­one may have picked up the wooden pup­pet, which is her favourite toy, at Clarks shoe shop in the Ash­ford De­signer Out­let last Tues­day.

Holly, a pupil at Downs View In­fants School said: “My mummy and daddy took me to Clarks shoe shop in the out­let cen­tre to buy some sum­mer sandals.

“I took with me my favourite toy, which is a wooden Pinoc­chio with a red top and light green shorts, and a han­dle made of string com­ing out the top of his hat, which my mummy bought a long time ago when she went to Italy on a school trip.

“Mummy and I were so busy find­ing shoes for me to try on and daddy had to go to the toi­let, so we didn’t no­tice when some­one took Pinoc­chio off the stool we were us­ing to sit on.”

She added: “I am re­ally, re­ally very sad to have lost my doll, and would so much like him back.

“Please could you put in your paper that if any­one knows where he is I would re­ally like him back, please.”

Her dad Philip, 59, said: “She turned around and he was gone.

“It’s just re­ally an­noy­ing. A tod­dler prob­a­bly grabbed it with­out think­ing and we were left with

our lit­tle girl in tears.”
