I sent my 5-year-old to school nativity play with a blow-up sheep sex toy
Mortified mum’s online shopping mix-up
“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.
