Send a Postcard for GoGo Beans

Please read this request from a mom and send a postcard to her son telling things GoGo Beans did while visiting your area.

Mom's Request:

GoGo Pork n Beans is the name my son gave to his best friend, an angry looking monkey from Target who has been since discontinued. A few weeks ago Go Go Beans (which is his nickname) was left on an airplane.After personally searching the lost and found in both Denver and Phoenix, we've determined that this monkey is kaput. I've contacted Target and they're not helpful in the slightest. I have searched ebay, posted to craigslist and searched through 87 pages of pictures of plush monkeys on froogle.com. No go go beans.Go Go Beans was a birthday present for my son's 1st birthday, so 2 years ago is when they made it. Cuddle Zone made it exclusively for Target.Noah now knows that Go Go Beans stayed on the plane to see the world. Our hope is that we can find Go Go Beans (or a twin) and all will be well with the world. Go Go beans is the central character of all of Noah's bedtime stories. I even mentioned him in a listing, he's that important! So the other night Noah asked if we could write him a letter. I said yes. I now bring to you, that letter that he dictated to me all by his little self (btw, his third birthday is Sept 16th)
:Dear Go Go Beans,We want to give you a birthday. (he had me draw a cake with two candles) I hope you're having fun on the airplane. I miss you and I miss you on the airplane. Plane. And I miss you on the ride of the airplane. And I love you *SO* much.Candles. Birthday Cake. Happy Birthday Go Go Beans. Clock. Email us, please. Trees. Mountains. Milk. Buttermilk and chocolate milk. Regular milk. Frog and Giraffe miss you. I miss Go Go Beans. I want you to come home soon. "Tell him that I miss you." Milk. Frog and Giraffe and now candlesticks.Love,Noah
Here's where all of you come in. We'd like Go Go Beans to write back to him saying what a great time he is having and hey look at this post card from all of these cool places I'm visiting! If anyone wants to help out, that'd be REALLY RAD! Thanks guys!-stacey

Her son's address :

What a neat ideal about Go Go Bean. I'll get a post card and sent it to Noah.

In my blogger today I post about your stocking exchange and hope it will generate some interest.

That is a very neat idea. I'm game! I'll send one out by week's end.

I'll go buy a postcard pronto and send it to Noah...what a heartwarming little story but so sad that he'll probably never see GoGoBeans again...hopefully one can be found! Don't forget to visit my blog tomorrow for my Halloween Bash! hehe

I just wrote one out and sent if from Go Go Beans to Master Noah and told Noah that I was having a grat time in savannah and that I loved and missed him a lot!! GREAT idea!! Poor little guy. I wish that we could find him another GO GO BEANS!! Sandy

Poor Noah, that's so sad that he's lost Go Go Beans. I think maybe GG B will have had an exciting trip to England among his adventures. I came here via Shadowlight's blog to see what the stocking thing is so now I'll go and look!

I will make myself a note to get a postcard and send it, I think this is such a sweet (yet sad)story but a great idea to keep GoGoBeans traveling thus easing little Noah's mind. Thanks for sharing this Peggy.
XOXO

judie said...

Peggy, do you have a picture of Go Go Beans?

paris parfait said...

Yes, Go Go Beans has been to Paris and sent a postcard home. :)

paris parfait said...

Oh and next week he's going to London and will send another postcard to Phoenix.

Marian said...

He'll be sending a postcard from Louisiana before the month is out. It looks like he's on a long journey crossing the ocean back and forth.

carmen said...

Oh you already have one being sent from Savannah...boohoo...I am not sure if GOGO beans would want to visit twice after being in Paris and london!

If you do not mind, I would like to link this in my next entry for more postcards from go go beans. I have small children & understand the importance of an "animal" friend to them.
