“He’s prob­a­bly in his room right now stuff­ing Lego in the hole”

A MOR­TI­FIED mum sent her five-year-old to his school nativity with a “shep­herd” cos­tume she bought on­line be­fore she re­alised it came with a blow-up sheep sex doll.

He­len Cox bought son Al­fie the £16.99 fancy dress cos­tume on Ama­zon for his school nativity play and he was de­lighted it came with a free in­flat­able.

But He­len was puz­zled when a teacher told Al­fie to take the sheep home – un­til she blew it up and found it had a huge hole in its bot­tom – as well as red lips and eye­lashes.

Mum-of-two He­len, 46, found the same sheep was on sale as a “stag night bonkin’ sheep”– and is now de­vis­ing a way to steal it away from Al­fie.

He­len, a psy­chol­ogy stu­dent, from Al­loa, Clack­man­nan­shire, said: “He’s prob­a­bly in his room right now stuff­ing Lego in the hole.

“I just can’t be­lieve it. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. How am I go­ing to ex­plain this to his teach­ers? I have no idea if they’ve seen it was a sex toy and that’s why they sent it home – I’m mor­ti­fied.”

The out­fit, which He­len bought on Ama­zon in Novem­ber, was listed as “Labreeze kids boys brown shep­herd cos­tume in­flat­able sheep nativity fancy dress out­fit”.

It ar­rived two weeks ago, and af­ter check­ing the cos­tume fit, He­len put it in a name-tagged bag for Al­fie to take to school on Novem­ber 26.

But when He­len went to pick Al­fie up from school on De­cem­ber 6 – a week be­fore the nativity – she no­ticed the sheep in his bag.

He­len added: “I asked him, ‘Why have you brought the sheep home Al­fie?’ It was part of his cos­tume and I thought he might have been naughty and snuck it out of school.

“But he said the teacher had given it to him to bring home, so I let it go.”

When they got home, He­len de­cided to blow the sheep up for her young Al­fie to play with – then the penny dropped.

He­len now plans to re­move the sheep and blame it on the Elf on the Shelf.
